How will Hong Kong deal with growing public discontent? | Inside Story 4.5
Anger over Hong Kong's controversial extradition bill isn't going away, even after it was suspended.

A controversial extradition law has been suspended in Hong Kong, but protesters say that's not enough.
The bill would allow suspects to be sent to mainland China for trial. The demonstrators have demanded it be scrapped completely.
And they now want the territory's leader Carrie Lam to step down too.
The chief executive serves like a prime minister and is chosen by a committee. But it's made up of mainly pro-Beijing politicians and business leaders.
The 'one country-two systems' governance deal with China, was meant to protect Hong Kong's semi-autonomy status.
But protesters say their freedoms are under threat, and they'll fight to keep them.
So, how will Hong Kong administration deal with this?
And how's it viewed in China?

It was actually Hong Kong that did well for China. Not the other way round.

11:10 This guy has no idea how the Chinese judiciary system works. If you're agains the official line, they make up some accusations and you're basically done. There is no rule of law in China, that's why as soon as Hong Kong would have an extradition treaty with China, Hong Kong would essentially have no more rule of law.

Carrie Lam is a dump mother. She should learn from Joshua Wong, he is young and intelligent. He knows how to protect Hongkong People that is why they put him to the jail. Shame on you, Carrie Lam. You are Xi' hen.
