Seeing the bill as a major milestone of Hong Kong’s decline into submitting to total mainland control, Hong Kong residents were not pleased with the bill’s suspension and have continued their protests. The extradition bill proposed that people could be extradited to mainland China for trial. Though Hong Kong’s Chief Executive Carrie Lam announced the extradition bill as “dead,” she never said “withdraw,” the operative word protesters were looking for. About half a million people marched on Sunday. Police used tear gas and rubber bullets to clear protesters late in the evening.
