Thousands Take to Streets in Hong Kong

HeadlineDec 13, 2019

In Hong Kong, thousands of people took to the streets Thursday to mark six months since the pro-democracy protest movement’s first major clash with police, when demonstrators prevented lawmakers from advancing an extradition bill that sparked the protests. While the extradition bill has since been scrapped, the demonstrations have continued to rock Hong Kong, with nearly a million people marching this past Sunday to demand more democracy. This is a college student at Thursday’s march.

Mr. Leung: “This movement is not the end, because just a whole beginning, because we have a lot of work to do. And also we think that this movement need to recall more people against some kind of government which is very evil and is against the human rights.”
