Last week, Chief Executive Carrie Lam pulled the extradition bill, but the protests persist.
Even before Lam blocked the legislation, the protests were being viewed as a referendum on increased Chinese influence and control. With the extradition bill off the table, the protests have now transformed into a broader fight for democracy and autonomy.
Observing the scale of these protests, their effectiveness in blocking the extradition bill, and the Chinese government’s response throughout the process serves as a timely reminder of the importance of the right to assemble in a functioning democracy.
