Protesters mark one year of Hong Kong demonstrations

Pro-democracy protesters march in the Central district of Hong Kong on Tuesday as the city marks the one-year anniversary since pro-democracy protests erupted following opposition to a bill allowing extraditions to mainland China. The protests have evolved to include calls for wider independence from the mainland due to what many see as curtailed freedoms due to the looming national security law.
