In the Crisis Evidence Lab, we acted in real-time to verify reports of the Hong Kong police’s escalating use of force against protesters from June to October 2019. This was in collaboration with both Amnesty International Hong Kong and our regional office.
Our experts analysed video and other evidence to show how police tactics fuelled a climate of fear rather than de-escalating the situation.
We explain how in this video.
