Nearly 2 million Hongkongers dressed in black flooded the city’s streets on June 16, calling for the government to withdraw a controversial extradition bill and for the city’s leader to resign.

The march was the largest demonstration in the city’s history, according to organizers, who said almost 2 million people attended—representing almost 29 percent of the population.

Police, however, said the demonstration reached 338,000 at its peak.

Nearly 30 percent of Hongkongers are protesting the extradition bill.

Good for them.

Protests in Hong Kong again turned violent following more than a week of peace and no tear gas being fired by police.

After Saturday and Sunday marches ended in two neighborhoods, clashes between police and protesters grew violent during the night.

On Sunday, several police officers drew their pistols and pointed them at a crowd of protesters and journalists. One reportedly fired a warning shot in the air.

Hongkongers continue to protest as China gets ever so closer.

Maybe they should have begged to stay under UK oversight.
