Organizers say 1.7 million people participated in the rally and there’s only about 7.5 million in Hong Kong. Fantastic, love to see this. Hopefully, it will be the beginning of the downfall of china’s communist party.

Hong Kong protest organizer Civil Human Rights Front estimates more than 1.7 million people gathered in the rain Sunday for the city’s 11th consecutive week of demonstrations.

Government officials told protesters to stay in Victoria Park, but the large, pro-democracy crowd eventually took to the streets to protest an extradition bill that would allow suspected criminals in Hong Kong to be tried in China, the South China Morning Post reported.

“The most important thing currently is to restore social order as soon as possible,” a government spokesman said, according to SCMP. “When everything is calm, the government will conduct a sincere dialogue with the public to repair strains and rebuild social harmony.”

Protesters were also responding to reports of police brutality during demonstrations that took place last week at a subway station and Hong Kong International Airport. More

On Thursday protesters in Hong Kong sang the U.S. national anthem and flew American flags as they protest oppression under China’s Communist Party.
