Police have warned protesters not to resort to brick throwing, saying they found some protesters breaking up a pavement next to Lung Wo Road and piling up bricks.
Police posted the warning on its social media accounts, with grainy photographs of people seemingly gathering around piles of bricks.
In their warning, police said throwing bricks may result in serious injury and even fatal ones, and is a serious crime.
During the 2016 violent clashes in Mong Kok, many people had used bricks obtained after breaking up pavements to hurl them at police. In the pitched battles that lasted a whole night during the Lunar New Year holidays, dozens of policemen were hurt.
