BBC News : Hong Kong protesters demonstrate against extradition bill



Hundreds of thousands of people marched in Hong Kong on Sunday against a law critics fear could let China target political opponents in the territory.

The controversial extradition bill would allow suspected criminals to be sent to mainland China for trial.

The government says the bill has built-in protections and will plug loopholes.

Organisers say there were one million protesters, which would make it the biggest march since the 1997 handover. Police say 240,000 were at their peak.

Hong Kong's leader Carrie Lam has pushed for the amendments to be passed before July. Supporters say safeguards are in place to prevent anyone facing religious or political persecution from being extradited to mainland China.

But critics say those in the former British colony would be exposed to China's deeply flawed justice system, and it would lead to further erosion of the city's judicial independence.

Protesters, marching in the sweltering heat dressed in white, include a wide range of people - from businesspeople and lawyers to students, pro-democracy figures and religious groups. The march was mainly peaceful though pepper spray was used against some protesters.

CBC News :
Hundreds of thousands march in Hong Kong to protest China extradition bill




Hong Kong was promised separate legal system, but bill would allow extradition of suspects to China

Several hundred thousand people jammed Hong Kong's streets on Sunday in the biggest rally for years to thwart a proposed extradition law that would allow suspects to be sent to mainland China to face trial.

Organizers said their initial estimates put the turnout at well over half a million people, saying it outstripped a demonstration in 2003 when 500,000 hit the streets to challenge government plans for tighter national security laws.

Those laws were later shelved and a key government official forced to resign. Sunday's outpouring was widely expected to raise the pressure on the administration of Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam and her official backers in Beijing.

Lam had yet to comment on the rally, which followed weeks of domestic discontent and official concern from the U.S., European Union and foreign business lobbies that the changes would dent Hong Kong's vaunted rule of law and freedoms.

The former British colony was handed back to Chinese rule in 1997 amid guarantees of autonomy and various freedoms including a separate legal system, which many diplomats and business leaders believe is the city's strongest remaining asset.

The unusually broad opposition to the rendition bill displayed on Sunday came amid a series of government moves to deepen links between southern mainland China and Hong Kong.
