Hong Kong’s Chief Executive Carrie Lam announced last Wednesday that the controversial bill that would allow extradition to mainland China will formally be withdrawn.
However, many protesters saw the decision as “too little, too late.”
Besides the withdrawal of the bill, four other demands must be met: an investigation of alleged police brutality, retract classification of protestors as “rioters,” amnesty of arrested protestors and implementation of universal suffrage.
