The protesters are violating the human rights of those who wish to travel. Preventing me from exiting the country is a violation of my human rights.
The protesters are protesting at the airport peacefully to raise awareness internationally. regardless of your opinion on their cause, they have not attempted to damage or disrupt flights, and have not attempted to enter airside or restricted areas.
It is not the protesters decision to close the airport. It is rightly or wrongly the government/HKIA airport authority choice to do this. So it is not accurate to assume protesters are violating your human rights. If you feel your rights are being violated, you may take other options to leave HKG including land border via train, bus, or car as well as ferry to Macau and Zhuhai.

They are blocking passengers from accessing the gates, that is why the airport is shutdown today. With my American passport and Chinese visa, I have the right to do go to Shenzhen or Macau, but not everyone has the right to simply go to Mainland China or Macau.
Fake news. No one can block access to gate. The protesters are only staging sit in on the arrival floor.
