New protests in Hong Kong Regardless of extradition bill withdrawal

Protesters are back to the roads of Hong Kong now regardless of the withdrawal earlier this week of a contentious extradition bill.

Demonstrators are collecting in Mong Kok Police Station to phone for CCTV footage to be published of police violence in the channel earlier this month.

It comes following Hong Kong’s Chief Executive, Carrie Lam, withdrew proposed laws that critics say could have enabled individuals to be sent to mainland China for trial in courts commanded by its own ruling Communist Party.

Demonstrations have gripped Hong Kong for 3 weeks, occasionally paralysing regions of the city amid running street battles between protesters and authorities whose violence has attracted global attention.
