The Hong Kong SAR government will cancel the National Day Fireworks Display originally scheduled to take place at Victoria Harbour in the evening of October 1 (Tuesday) in view of the escalating social unrest.

Pro-democracy protestors in the city have taken to the streets for 15 straight weekends.

The Hong Kong protests were originally against a government proposed bill that would allow extradition to China but now has grown to include other demands for more democracy and an independent investigation into police brutality against protesters and the general public.
