Opinion – I do not understand riots

Here is a photograph from Hong Kong (source).

Why did the people protest?
Because of illegal food stands? Or was it because of the hawking? I does not really matter.

What bugs me is, that these are people living in this city. And they go out and break and damage their own place to live.

Protesters wielded self-made weapons, set fires and hurled bricks and bottles

I mean, when I want to make my city a better place I would not go out and smash stuff.

So why riots?
