Carrie Lam, who is Hong Kong’s embattled leader shelved the bill on Saturday. This phenomenon was followed by a rare apology that was presented the very next day. However, the pro-democracy activist labelled the act as too little and too late.

Organizer’s of the protest gave an unverified estimate of the size of the protest. They claimed that nearly 2 million people out of the 7 million that reside in the country came out of their houses to show their anger.

Umpteen protestors said that Mrs Lam’s apology did not satisfy them as it appeared insincere. Leo Cheng a 19-year-old student gave her views regarding Lam’s apology. Leo said

She only did it under pressure,”

The marchers’ are determined on sending tremors to Beijing. Well, this act is sure to test Xi Jinping’s meticulously designed image of strength and competence. The protestors wish to send a message to Beijing stating that Hong Kong people will not remain silent.

If Beijing wants to do something that will violate the basic values of Hong Kong then its residents will time and again turn out in force, so as to present their discontent. The marchers consisted of both young and old. Parents with their children, a crowd of students and innumerable retirees could be seen on the street.

Demonstrators could be seen carrying signs listing their demands. Their lengthening demands included a complete withdraw of the bill in place of indefinite suspension. They even want an impartial investigation regarding the use of force done by police on the hapless protestors on Wednesday.

Though there are no speedy plans for another march yet labour unions have asked different sectors of society to take turns in holding a strike on Monday.

So it looks like Hong Kong is nowhere near settlement at the moment. People have refused to budge even an inch from their demands so maybe this time the government will have to set down a bit. How the events will unfold is practically a mystery at the moment.
