Hong Kong was electrified by a record march on Sunday, the third major demonstration in a week. Organisers claimed that nearly 2 million people turned out to oppose an extradition law pushed by Lam, called for her resignation, condemned police brutality against protesters and demanded they drop any rioting charges.

Of 32 people arrested over the demonstrations so far, only five have been charged with rioting offences, he said. The legal designation of “riot” has been a focus of concerns because it means protesters face heavier sentences.
