A Public Joint Statement from Hong Kong Citizens.
Hundreds of thousands of people in Hong Kong took to the street in recent months to protest amid the controversial extradition bill.

Confirmed firearms in use including batons, pepper spray and rubber bullets. Several unarmed participants have been reportedly beaten or shot.
