Hong Kong protesters vow to escalate action

ROUGH CUT - NO REPORTER NARRATION A small number of protesters still lingered outside Hong Kong's Legislative Council (LegCo) complex on Thursday (June 20) expressing dissatisfaction with leader Carrie Lam's public apology, despite business continuing as usual across the city.

Lam on Tuesday (June 18) signaled the end of a controversial extradition bill that she promoted and then postponed after some of the largest protests since the former British colony returned to Chinese rule in 1997.

In a closely watched press conference, Lam apologized for the turmoil but refused to say the bill would be "withdrawn," only that it wouldn't be re-introduced during her time in office if public fears persist.

Some protest organisers and opposition Democrats said Lam remained tone-deaf to public demands, namely that she state categorically a retraction of the bill, step down immediately and pledge not to prosecute any protesters on rioting charges.

Most of the lingering protesters on Wednesday also felt her apology was directed at pro-China parties, rather than Hong Kong citizens.

"I want to let everyone know that the Hong Kongers have not given up yet," 21-year-old protester Jeff Chan said.
