More than one million protesters took the main avenues in central Hong Kong to demand the final withdrawal of the extradition bill, which has been put on hold by the local government.

The march, which began with hundreds of thousands of people, gathered more and more people, and at 20.50 local time (12.50 GMT) the demonstrators occupied Tamar Park, next to the seat of Parliament and the main avenues and adjacent streets around it in a radius of almost 2 kilometers.

Many of the participants expressed their intention to stay overnight in the streets, while calling for the complete withdrawal of the bill and the resignation of its promoter, the head of the local executive, Carrie Lam, who announced the suspension of the legislative initiative in the face of popular protests.
