Timelapse of Hong Kong protesters filling the streets in protest against extradition bill

ROUGH CUT.

NO REPORTER NARRATION.

Timelapse videos on Sunday (June 16) show protesters, including young families as well as the elderly, formed a sea of black along roads, walkways and train stations across Hong Kong's financial center to vent their frustration and anger at Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam.

Hundreds of thousands of people clogged the streets in central Hong Kong on Sunday dressed in black to demand the city's leader step down, a day after she suspended an extradition bill in a dramatic retreat following the most violent protests in decades.

The massive rally saw some protesters carry white carnation flowers, while others held banners saying, "Do not shoot, we are HongKonger," as they sought to avoid a repeat of the violence that rocked the financial center on Wednesday when police fired rubber bullets and tear gas.

Loud cheers rang out when activists called through loud hailers for Lam to step down.

Protesters also chanted "pursue the black police," angry at what they say was an overreaction by police that left more than 70 people injured in Wednesday's violent protest.
