Protesters rally against extradition bill in Hong Kong(38 images)

Millions of people have taken to the streets of Hong Kong since June 9, 2019 in protest of a bill allowing extradition to mainland China. Among their demands was the resignation of Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam. The bill was suspended as a result of the protest. Lam apologized but has not resigned.

Thousands of people take part in the annual protest that coincides with the date in 1997 when Britain handed over control of Hong Kong back to China. Opposition to a proposed Hong Kong law allowing extraditions to China has created increased activism. Photo by Stephen Shaver/UPI | License Photo
