This link provides a lot of videos of this past weekend’s protests in Hong Kong, all of which suggest that the protesters are responding to the police’s harsher enforcement with their own harsher actions.
It also appears that the protests began with a peaceful march of tens of thousands, and only became violent when the police tried to shut the protest down.
