Close to two million people hit the streets on Sunday to call on the Hong Kong government to withdraw a controversial extradition bill, according to organisers. The Civil Human Rights Front (CHRF) figure represents 28.5 per cent of the city’s population, and would make the demonstration the largest in Hong Kong history. Mike Yeung shares a timelapse of the rally’s climax in Admiralty.
