The situation in Hong Kong escalated early this week as police trapped protesters on the Polytechnic University campus.

About 280 protestors were taken to a nearby hospital to treat their injuries.

Some 600 protestors left the university’s campus in a manner described as “peaceful” by the school’s chief executive.

Journalist Casey Quackenbush covers the Hong Kong protests. She joins us to discuss the scene on the ground and what we can expect in the coming days.
