The crowds did not leave until 8 p.m. after armed riot police arrived. It was claimed that some protesters were injured during the conflict with the police.

Li said that many Liberation Army Hospitals have opened to the public and are not different from other general hospitals. Veterans also need to pay to see a doctor. According to Li, many hospitals charge before they perform emergency service.

The protest, according to the Hong Kong based Information Center for Human Rights & Democracy, attracted over ten thousand people at one point. The crowd attempted to break into the hospital. The riot police confiscated the picture and slogans from the family. During the conflict, at least ten protesters were injured. The police took away the victim’s family members and their whereabouts were unknown at the time of this report……. (More from The Epochtimes)
