Hong Kong’s Leader, Yielding to Protests, Suspends Extradition Bill
LINK

HONG KONG — Backing down after days of huge street protests, Hong Kong’s chief executive, Carrie Lam, said on Saturday that she would indefinitely suspend a bill that would allow extraditions to mainland China.

It was a remarkable reversal for Mrs. Lam, the leader installed by Beijing in 2017, who had vowed to ensure the bill’s approval and tried to get it passed on an unusually short timetable, even as hundreds of thousands demonstrated against it this past week.

But she made it clear that the bill was being delayed, not withdrawn outright, as protesters have demanded.

“I believe that we cannot withdraw this bill, or else society will say that this bill was groundless,” Mrs. Lam said at a news conference



Congratulations to the people of Hong Kong for standing up for their rights and not succumbing to the mainland.

I'd imagine that won't last long.

They will be forcibly kidnapped by Chinese secret police and it will be done that way instead.

I follow a Canadian bushcraft guy on YT who is in Hong Kong and videoed some of the clashes. Tons of tear gas but the other tactic was the police adding the tear gas liquid to the water cannon tanks

The Chinese protesters were organized and were handing out umbrellas through the crowds by the hundreds, if not eventually thousands
