A group of Hong Kong anti-extradition bill activists, who entered their 12th day of hunger strike, marched to Government House, the office of Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam on Monday, demanding to speak with the leader.
Footage shows the hunger strikers and other activists marching from Admiralty Centre, where they have been staying, to Government House.
«It is not just those who are more... Еще progressive or those who are young who are concerned about the extradition bill,» said Legislative Council Member Dr. Fernando Cheung Chiu-hung. «This is really an outcry from all walks of life and we wish them to completely withdraw the bill and, also, meet the demands of the public including establishing an independent inquiry to investigate the whole saga.»
Hundreds of thousands of protesters gathered in the streets of Hong Kong in recent weeks in one of the largest demonstrations in the city’s history, against an extradition bill which would allow people to be extradited to the mainland to face trial.
Although the bill has since been suspended, the protests have continued with protesters calling for it to be withdrawn entirely and for Hong Kong's Chief Executive Carrie Lam to resign.
