Protests in Hong Kong

本文 There have been massive protests on the streets of Hong Kong this month. It’s estimated that about 2 million people have taken part. That’s more than a quarter of the country’s population.

Protests began on June 9. Organizers say about a million people showed up that day. People are protesting a bill. They don’t want the government to make it a law. If it does become a law, people in Hong Kong who have been accused of crimes could be sent to other countries to stand trial. This process is called extradition. Protesters are worried that mainland China would use this law to imprison people from Hong Kong who act or speak out against the Chinese government. Doing so is legal in Hong Kong. In mainland China, it’s not.

On the night of June 9, Hong Kong’s government issued a statement. It said the plan to move forward with the bill would continue despite the protests. This angered many people. There were confrontations between protesters and police. Some turned violent. Protests continued throughout the week. More and more people joined in.
