Hong Kong protests turn violent as China remains firm in extradition law


The Duran’s Alex Christoforou and Editor-in-Chief Alexander Mercouris discuss the Hong Kong protests that are becoming increasingly violent and showing no signs of letting up, without Chinese intervention.

What started out as a protest against a proposed extradition bill in early June has escalated into a wider movement, where protesters are now saying they are fighting for democratic reform, presenting a long list of demands from mainland China.

Protestors are calling for Hong Kong’s chief executive Carrie Lam to stand down, for an investigation into the use of police force against protesters, and for full democracy of the semi-autonomous Chinese territory.
