The protesters came in Hong Kong street on Sunday morning following the signing of the law by US President Donald Trump.
People approached the US consulate to express their “gratitude” for a law adoption on human rights in the semi-autonomous territory in China, carrying the American flag in which “President Trump, please, liberate Hong Kong” written.
The US President signed the law agreed with the Senate which China condemned and accused the US of its “stark hegemonic acts” and meddling in the domestic affairs.
The protesters urge to greater democracy, creating an independent commission of investigation against police cruelty, etc.
“The government only responds to one of our demands. We urge them to answer to our other demands. They just simply insisted that they did nothing wrong,” Steven Lee, a 25-year-old protester, said.
“Voting for district councils is solely a small step for us to express our political views,” he added. “But it’s irrelevant to our demands.”
Beijing made up its mind to set aside, believing Hong Kong’s leader Carrie Lam would solve the fuss on his own.
