As the protests demanding genuine universal suffrage in Hong Kong moved into their third week, Chinese authorities continue to crack down on individuals in the mainland who express support for the movement. Since the demonstrations began in late September, CHRD has documented more than 60 detentions in total, including 23 criminal detentions, three administrative detentions, and 35 cases of people in other forms of police custody. We also documented one case of torture of a supporter in a detention facility. https://chrdnet.com/2014/10/chrb-discrimination-against-women-in-china-under-un-review-more-detained-for-backing-hong-kong-protests-1010-162014/ @AP @bbcchinese @cnni @VOAChinese
