For the many high school and university-age students who flooded Hong Kong's streets, the issue is much bigger than extradition alone. As they see it, they are fighting a “final battle” for some semblance of autonomy from the Chinese government. | By @mikeives + @Katherineli1997
This is the first thing I’ve seen that actually captures the enormous scale of Sunday’s protest in Hong Kong. Absolutely wild https://www.facebook.com/shanghaiist/videos/196196861299269/?__xts__=68.ARCTPcLMamlqy99qDp2WnvohixiE_XutSz2a4QPvuSLlFweNbashjjNW9ldvDzryauJYy18fxwQg5wDCAIieLa6rVjkoNwpLh29j7JvZ5NxLCCyoUFn2Dh0B3RiI1ee9AFI3awdKsFiVA8grZNQZpyBzV7FX3eM-pJeh_dXZDIQx9M85kRSWgEtF2fMytfalJq3D9AivzPlLDoNCQjBwOvPbf4OelNOOKWOVNAnhg_e8IGUgDkb96ykMQWqMYeZGb-mDnsPAlVQEoq8Aqhvnei16EUMwutfi-QYeY1JxQlwGynsgrURpJHiiiQPD7jxPcM1Z7b0iGSlTLaeAEve9uDQVM6SMsNSsfYt3LhGn_kj0sWCl2-sdUQ&__tn__=-y.g …

“The extradition law is a danger to our lives,” said Zack Ho, 17, a high school student who helped organize a boycott of classes. “Once this passes, our rule of law would be damaged beyond repair.” @mikeives and @Katherineli1997 with @LamYikFei photos
“I go home and cry, but after that, I have to get up and try to rally more people," a 16-y-o protester told @NYtmay at a student strike in Hong Kong y'day. Our story on the HK youth hitting the streets en masse: https://nyti.ms/2KndeGB @nytimesworld @katherineli1997
Taiwan's opposition to HK's unpopular extradition bill “would provide the basis for any leader to change their position,” says a pro-Beijing lawmaker. “There is nothing wrong with that. This is what I am imploring the chief executive to do.” https://nyti.ms/2XMdCl2 @nytimesworld
Hong Kong's tech-savvy protesters are going digitally dark as they try to avoid surveillance and potential future prosecutions, disabling location tracking on their phones, buying train tickets with cash and purging their social media conversations.

Ah, that explains long queues for tickets in the Admiralty MTR station Weds
The day before protests flared in Hong Kong, 10 police officers showed up at Ivan Ip’s house. They forced him to open his phone, and took data on a 20,000 person chat group organizing protests. How China polices the internet is becoming how Hong Kong does.
