Free arrested Hong Kong union leaders!
At least three leaders of the independent Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions (HKCTU) were arrested today as police moved to break up the democracy encampment in the Admiralty section of the city. HKCTU members and leaders had rushed to the site when the police announced their intention to end the occupation by clearing out protestors. At least three HKCTU leaders were among those arrested for ‘obstruction’: Chief Executive Mung Siu Tat, construction union leader Ar Man and Organizing Secretary Fredrik Fan.
