Sunday's protests were one of a series of protests launched by the public around government offices and the Legislative Council complex, similar the 2014 pro-democracy Umbrella Movement protests chanting “Carrie Lam, step down!” demanding the city's autonomy from mainland China, according to an international news agency.
Six hours after the protest started, the government released a statement apologizing to the public and indefinitely suspending the bill.
