On June 9, 2019, a million people rallied in Hong Kong, followed by tens of thousands blocking the Legislative Council session on June 12, police fired more than 240 tear gas, rubber and bean bag bullets to the crowd. On June 17, 2019, the city witnessed the largest rally in her history of 2 million people. The tumultuous week of rallies and protest were directed at a proposed extradition law which would send Hong Kong citizens to China for trial of a number of accused crimes. The rally started a year-long protest that still persists to this day.
