Hundreds of protesters gathered in Tuen Mun shopping mall in Hong Kong on Wednesday, to protest Hong Kong's Chief Executive Carrie Lam on her 63rd birthday.
The protesters also reportedly gathered in response to a new bill announced by Lam on Tuesday, which would criminalise any abuse of the Chinese national anthem. Booing while it is being played or using it for commercial purposes, would result... Еще in a suggested fine of 50,000 Hong Kong Dollars ($6450) (5,962.75 Euro).
The protesters revolted against it by singing the Hong Kong protesters' anthem «Glory to Hong Kong,» as well as various messages such as «no rioters, only tyranny.»
They also held banners in protest to the leader reading «Liberate HK, Time of Revolution,» among others.
Last year, Hong Kong saw the largest protest movement in its history, which started with opposition to a now-scrapped plan to allow extraditions to mainland China before evolving into an overall anti-government demonstration.
The protest movement united activists calling for more autonomy and an investigation into alleged police brutality, with demonstrations temporarily stopping at the beginning of 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak.
