by Ng Yi Shu Around 2,000 protesters took over an intersection between Western Road and Des Voeux Road West yesterday (Nov 6) to protest the Chinese government's decision to interpret the Basic Law over an oath-taking controversy. The protesters - who split from an afternoon march to the Old Supreme Court Building - attempted to gather outside the China Liaison Office, where police had set out cordons. Several attempts to breach the cordon saw police responding with a red warning flag and pepper spray. (Edited by Hilda Lo)
