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

From @KeithBradsher's #HongKong story archive: As FBI director, Robert Mueller visited HK after the city's mega 2003 protests, and praised local police for management of large protest crowds. Said US was learning from HK's example.

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__[0]=68.ARCTPcLMamlqy99qDp2WnvohixiE_XutSz2a4QPvuSLlFweNbashjjNW9ldvDzryauJYy18fxwQg5wDCAIieLa6rVjkoNwpLh29j7JvZ5NxLCCyoUFn2Dh0B3RiI1ee9AFI3awdKsFiVA8grZNQZpyBzV7FX3eM-pJeh_dXZDIQx9M85kRSWgEtF2fMytfalJq3D9AivzPlLDoNCQjBwOvPbf4OelNOOKWOVNAnhg_e8IGUgDkb96ykMQWqMYeZGb-mDnsPAlVQEoq8Aqhvnei16EUMwutfi-QYeY1JxQlwGynsgrURpJHiiiQPD7jxPcM1Z7b0iGSlTLaeAEve9uDQVM6SMsNSsfYt3LhGn_kj0sWCl2-sdUQ&__tn__=-y.g …

An amazing look, and worth remembering that in the final hours the march also filled a parallel four lane road not shown here.

“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

Hong Kong pressers are nicely rowdy, although it can be hard to get a word in

Says police used “appropriate levels of force” and would conduct after/action review of its work, as per normal protocol

Parents in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region took to the streets on Sunday to urge US politicians to not interfere with the SAR's extradition amendments and its internal affairs. #HongKong

What are their editorial meetings like?

網上見到的視頻,巨量的人群如摩西過紅海一般,讓路給救護車。香港人不是暴徒。

I can’t comprehend how smoothly this worked out

My local flower shop is down the street from Victoria Park. It’s basically out of white flowers today because of the demonstration.

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

The Economist's front covers say it all, from (June 1997) Hong Kong the city which can liberalise China to (June 2019) Hong Kong the city whose future is at stake. #NoExtraditionToChina #HongKongProtests

Quoted @yuenok

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. By me https://news.yahoo.com/surveillance-savvy-hong-kong-protesters-digitally-dark-003014805.html …

Ah, that explains long queues for tickets in the Admiralty MTR station Weds

“Hong Kong is fast becoming just like any Chinese city,” said Claudia Mo, a pro-democracy lawmaker. “The police attitude is rather like what happened on Tiananmen Square 30 years ago.” Read this story by @mikeives and @jotted

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.
