Hong Kong residents took to the streets during the weekend to clear roadblocks and debris left by rioters on major roads, after the most chaotic week since the series of violent protests erupted in June.

However, violent clashes continued in the vicinity of local universities.

On Sunday morning, a group of Hong Kong people arrived near Hong Kong Polytechnic University to clear barriers, piles of bricks and debris from the Chatham Road South. The road is near the Cross Harbour Tunnel, the city's busiest tunnel, linking Kowloon and the Hong Kong Island.

It was the second day that residents volunteered to clear debris left over from the rioting.

However, the volunteers were harassed and attacked by black-clad protesters gathered in the PolyU campus. Imitating police warnings, protesters demanded the residents leave or they would "use force to disperse them". They threw bricks from platforms and drove the volunteers away with rods.
