Hong Kong anti-extradition bill protesters occupy Revenue Tower

More than 100 anti-extradition bill protesters blocked a Hong Kong government building on Monday (June 24) to prevent civil servants and taxpayers from entering.

Protesters occupied the ground floor and entrances of Revenue Tower from lunchtime in a bid to pressure the government to withdraw the bill that would allow people to be extradited to mainland China to face trial.

Hong Kong has been facing weeks of protests against the extradition bill that has plunged the Chinese-ruled city into crisis, posing the greatest challenge to Chinese President Xi Jinping since he took power in 2012.
