Huge crowds of demonstrators packed the city’s streets Sunday to protest a proposed law that would allow Beijing to take people from Hong Kong to stand trial in mainland China.
The mass turnout—which organizers estimated at more than one million, or almost one for every seven residents in the city—represented the biggest challenge to Beijing’s authority over Hong Kong in years, rejecting the government’s attempts to push through legislation that critics say could be abused to target dissidents.
