HKFP Lens: The final throes of Hong Kong’s day-long street occupation, as anti-extradition law protesters dispersed to Central

Christiaan Hart shares shots of the final hours of the day-long street occupation on Wednesday, after protesters were cleared from the areas around the legislature and government headquarters. After police pushed anti-extradition law demonstrators towards Central, they erected barricades and slowly dispersed during the night. Roads had reopened by morning, though trails of debris remained around Central and Admiralty, where the Central Government Offices and nearby MTR station remain closed.
