- Story Text: Hong Kong protesters marched in the rain on Sunday (October 6) while wearing face masks, in defiance against a ban on them that started on Saturday (October 5) at midnight.
Hong Kong's rail operator reopened part of its metro system on Sunday after an unprecedented shutdown, but kept many typically busy stations closed, as the Chinese-ruled city braces for large demonstrations expected later in the day.
Participants took part in two major protests, one on the island and another on the Kowloon peninsula.
Violent protests had erupted across the Asian financial center soon after Lam wielded the colonial-era powers for the first time in more than 50 years to order the ban in hopes of curbing months of unrest.
