Hong Kong's leader is worried about the protests taking place in the city. She said they are affecting daily life. She said the city is on "the verge of an extremely dangerous situation". Hong Kong had protests for the ninth weekend in a row. Protestors fought with police. A citywide strike disrupted transport. Traffic was brought to a standstill as streets were blocked. Protestors made sure trains could not move by keeping their doors open, angering passengers.

A proposed bill to extradite people to stand trial in mainland China started the protests. In July, protesters broke into the legislature building. They broke glass walls, metal doors and damaged flags and paintings with spray cans. A government spokesperson said the conduct of the protestors, "has blatantly offended the...national dignity [and] trampled on the...'one country, two systems' principle, and greatly hurt the feelings of the entire Chinese people."
