Hong Kong extradition bill debate delayed after massive protests



Fights between police and some protesters in Hong Kong have broken out over a contentious plan to change the extradition law.
This was the scene, not long ago, outside the Legislative Council building.
We have heard that tear gas has been fired.
Earlier, debate on the bill was delayed.
The change in the law would allow criminal suspects in Hong Kong to be sent for trial in mainland China.
Critics believe China is trying to take more control of the semi-autonomous territory and chip away at civil liberties.

  1. Independent Hong Kong

  2. Stay strong HK. The government is nothing without the support of the people. Also Mainland China realized that all the money capitalists in HK would leave and go to Singapore.

  3. 祝你好运香港。发送来自日本的欢呼声。
    Go Hong Kong. From Japan.
    頑張れ香港!!

  4. I do not understand why the Hongkong police are violating Hong Kong citizens😡😡😡😡😡😡😡

  5. Maybe all of the world people support honkong. Except for chinese

  6. They tried to extradite those who escaped to Hong Kong for speaking against Mao in the 1960's luckily the then British authority in Hong Kong insisted on absolute no.

  7. Yes! Just another day at the fish market

  8. The title of the bill is :
    Fugitive Offenders and Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters Legislation (Amendment) Bill 2019

    It is about "extradition of fugitives", peoples who committed crime in mainland China and run away.
    So why protests?

  9. One country, two systems:

    When in Hong Kong, you must abide by the laws of Hong Kong, when in mainland China, you must abide by the laws of the mainland.
    Fugitives who commit crimes on the mainland must be extradited to the mainland to stand trial even if they flee to Hong Kong, and vice versa.

  10. Julian Assange the Wikileaks journalist who exposed evidences of usa war crimes + murders is going to be extradited from uk to the usa, so why are the Hongkong protestors not protesting…..?? and why are the protestors not protesting against the extradition treaty between Hongkong and usa , given that honest and good Journalists like Julian Assange can be extradited to the usa ……..?? These young hongkong protestors are so naive and brain washed and fighting for the wrong thing .

  13. Honkers… take a month off!

  14. These young Hongkong protestors are so naive. The enemy (usa government )
    is at the gate ,waiting to destroy Hongkong , just like how Ukraine +
    syria + Libya were destabilized the same way initially , and then
    destroyed by the usa government , and these young Hongkong people are
    instead fighting against the motherland China.

  18. China needs to send in the Army this is getting out of control!!

  19. HongKong must Independence from China Communist Dictatorship Country

  21. With Socialism and Communism it's all about control,full of violence. Both ideologies will not and cannot tolerate freedom and liberty.
    Who Could Bargain With the Devil " Socialism and Communism " ???
    Those who concede to it are suicidal !!!

  22. Hong Kong …freedom… is on its way out.

  23. Start making fire bomb and throw them at the Hong Kong Police.

  24. Make sure you pick out the Police who fired rubber bullet and tear gas. Then, all of you grab him and cut him to pieces.

  25. I hope the Hong Kong people will be successful in this fight. They are fighting giant here. Beijing is trying to silence democracy movements in Hong Kong. They fear this might be a treat to communist party.

  26. Wow, look at all the people China is going to have to kill and cover up when it turns 2047. I'm gonna invest in Chinese crematory business. Should make some good money. Also gonna invest in Chinese tech companies that specialize in erasing social media accounts, pictures, text, and any other trace of Hong Kong people. The stocks should rise atleast 2 fold by 2048.

  27. Commie butcher scum understand only one thing: A bullet to the face.

  28. I'm grateful to be Malaysia omg🤯

  29. bunch of street rats paid by the triad, corporate and shadow banking oligarchs

  30. I am Korean and I am very sad. Because it is very similar to the 1960~1987 demonstrations in Korea. In 1960~1987, South Koreans protested against the South Korean government. The reason was because of the ridiculous legislation. And the government has always said there are North Korean spies behind people and killed many. Too many people were killed and injured. But now, the Chinese government says the america is behind the people of Hong Kong. it's very similar with in 1987 in south korea. and There, Hong Kong people protest because of the Chinese law. As a Korean, as a participant in the pro-democracy movement, of course a huge control group called Chinese goverment, which is no match for Korean situation in 1960~1987, is oppressing them, but I wish people of hong kong to get victory for democracy. And I hope that Chinese citizens will realize the importance of democratization and be supportive.

  38. Look at all those iPhones.

  39. Just like how China was given permission for the chinese to build a military base in British Columbia Canada where transgender treasonous pedo trudeau gave the chinese permissions to round-up and harvest Canadian native families to continue the israeli zionist jews live organ facilities they created throughout china because the low numbers of palistinians near and within israel that remain to feed themselves and there jew human trafficking facilities.
