Thousands marched to West Kowloon high-speed rail terminus on Sunday in another protest against the government’s suspended extradition bill. Their key demands included for the proposal – which would enable the city to handle the transfer of fugitives to jurisdictions where there are no prior agreements, notably China – to be withdrawn, as well as calls for universal suffrage. As the day drew to a close, clashes broke out between police and protesters heading north to Mong Kok. Photographer May James documented the day as it unfolded. See part 1, part 2, and part 3.
