Huge Hong Kong Protest Challenges China's Strengthening Grip




Hong Kong’s Beijing-backed government faced new pressure to withdraw legislation easing extraditions to China after hundreds of thousands of people turned out to oppose the measure, leading to clashes with police into the early-morning hours.
White-clad demonstrators, many chanting for Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam’s resignation, choked 3 kilometers (1.9 miles) of central city boulevards for hours Sunday as they marched to the local government headquarters. Organizers put the turnout at 1.03 million as of 9:30 p.m., while police estimated 240,000 participants at the rally’s peak.
