China: Protests Continue Against Controversial Extradition Bill

On 7 July, tens of thousands of people marched through Hong Kong’s Yau Tsim Mong District located on the western part of Kowloon Peninsula, in protest against a controversial extradition bill. These were the first protests of this kind to take place in Kowloon, with previous unrest confined to Hong Kong. Although the gathering was largely peaceful, several hours after the initial march concluded riot police officers violently clashed with a group of several hundred protesters. At least 6 people were arrested.

Further protests of a similar nature should not be ruled out. Transportation disruptions, including crowded public transportation conditions and road closures, and a heightened security presence are expected near protest sites. Clashes between protesters and security forces, particularly in the evening, cannot be ruled out. Avoid all large gatherings of crowds and plan your travel accordingly.
