UK tourist captures massive anti-extradition bill protest in Hong Kong
A UK tourist filmed his time at the third massive anti-extradition bill protest in Hong Kong last Sunday (June 16). The dramatic scene shows thousands of Hong Kong residents gathering on streets, holding posters with "accountability of gun shooting" and "withdraw accusation" in traditional Chinese. The protesters can also be heard shouting "Withdraw" repeatedly. Hong Kong Chief Executive, Carrie Lam, announced the planned extradition bill was to be suspended after huge protests throughout last week. However, it did not appease Hong Kong residents as they had another huge protest against Lam and the extradition bill.
