  • More than 1 million protest in Hong Kong, organizers say, over Chinese extradition law

    More than 1 million protesters took to the streets of Hong Kong Sunday, organizers said, to oppose a controversial extradition bill that would enable China to extradite fugitives from the city, in what would be the largest demonstration since the city's handover to China in 1997.

    Civil Human Rights Front, the group that organized the protests, said 1.03 million people marched -- a figure that accounts for more than one in seven of the city's 7.48 million-strongpopulation.
    Hong Kong Police projected the number of protesters at closer to 240,000.
    Critics say the bill will leave anyone on Hong Kong soil vulnerable to being grabbed by the Chinese authorities for political reasons or inadvertent business offenses and undermine the city's semi-autonomous legal system.

    It's almost as if China is an oppressive regime that wants to subjugate its population.
