Police Outside Legislative Council Fire Tear Gas at Protesters

Police fired pepper spray and tear gas at protesters outside Hong Kong’s Legislative Council buildings on Wednesday, June 12, as turmoil over a proposed extradition law continued.

Protesters dispersed but continued to block roads around the buildings.

The demonstrations followed huge protests on the weekend against the extradition bill, which would allow for the transfer of criminal suspects to mainland China.

The Sunday rally ended with clashes between protesters and police.

According to the Hong Kong Free Press, the meeting to discuss the proposed legislation at government buildings was postponed.
