Hong Kong is bracing for more demonstrations this weekend, with protesters threatening to disrupt transport links to the airport as embattled leader Carrie Lam’s withdrawal of a controversial extradition bill fails to appease some activists.
Protesters plan to block traffic to the city’s international airport on Saturday, a week after thousands of demonstrators disrupted transport links, which saw some of the worst violence since the unrest escalated three months ago.
The Airport Authority, in an advert in the South China Morning Post newspaper on Friday, urged protesters “not to disrupt the journey of tens of thousands of travelers who use the airport every day”.
In a pre-recorded televised address on Wednesday, Lam said the extradition bill had been withdrawn, conceding to one of the protesters’ five demands, although many said the move was too little, too late.
