Dear Census and Statistics Department,
I have a few statistical inquiries regarding the 2019 protests

1) Arrests related to the protests (since June)
 In terms of demographics : what age categories, gender, socio-economic categories ?
 How many arrests led to legal proceedings (as opposed to short detention in custody)
 Statistics of legal grounds pressed against protesters (riot? Assault? Arson? Criminal Damage? Weapons possession? Unlawful assembly?)
 What were the 5 distinct events (or days) in which the most arrests were made ?

2) Do you have any breakout of the protests in terms of what cause they were defending?
 Number of Pro-establishment protests ?
 Number of Anti-establishment protests ?
 How many arrests were made during Anti-establishment events and Pro-establishment events respectively ?
 How many people were prosecuted following the Yuen Long events on 21st/22nd of July, 2019 ?

3) How many protests applications were accepted ? How many were rejected, and on what legal grounds ?

4) Injuries
 How many protesters were injured according to your data?
 How many policemen were injured ?
 How many severe injuries (as opposed to superficial and non-permanent) have been recorded?
 How many fatalities on both sides have been recorded?

5) Number of policemen in action since the beginning of the protests
 Has there been any increase in the deployment of police forces since the beginning of the protests, if yes, what were their size ?

6) What anti-repression tools are used by the police (e.g. weapons, intervention techniques, guidelines) ?
 Have there been any new anti-riot means deployed in the last 6 months ?

7) When is the IPCC (Independent Police Complaints Council) report going to be released ?

8) Do you have any official statistics on vandalism related to the protests ?

I thank you in advance,
Yours faithfully,

Victor Alamercery
