Beginning March 2019, protestors take to the streets in response to the introduction by the Hong Kong government of the Fugitive Offenders amendment bill on extradition – which allows arrangements for mutual legal assistance to be made between Hong Kong and any place outside Hong Kong – fearing China’s newfound ability through this bill to arrest voices of political dissent in Hong Kong. In the ensuing months, protests turn violent, resulting in multiple standoffs between police and protestors.
