Thousands of Hong Kong residents gathered on Friday night to commemorate the first anniversary of the fight for extradition bill suggested by the local government.
Hong Kong protestors accumulated in local malls and neighborhoods to mark the first year of the protest started on 9 June 2019. They sung a popular protest anthem and chanted slogans in the city. “Glory to Hong Kong” was a protest anthem that became greatly popular during the turmoil to express their feelings in the protest.
Meanwhile, 35 people were arrested by police due to unlawful assemblies as more than eight people were gathered in a spot. Around 9,000 people arrested over the protests and universal suffrage in a year.
Last month Beijing proposed to implement a new national security law on Hong Kong to fight subversion, succession, terrorism and foreign interference. Despite several protests and critics by many countries, the mainland government is determined to impose the law in order to regain order in the city.
