Hundreds of protesters gather to mark 'million-people' march anniversary in Hong Kong

Hundreds of protesters gathered in central Hong Kong to mark a year of sustained pro-democracy rallies.

Protesters defied a government ban on gatherings of more than 8 people due to the coronavirus. They gathered in several shopping malls to chant pro-democracy slogans.

Last year on June 9, an estimated more than one million protesters took to the streets against proposed legislation to allow extraditions to mainland China, where the courts are controlled by the Communist Party.
