At West Kowloon Court where 96 protesters arrested in Admiralty on 9/29 are expected to be formally charged with ‘riot’. In terms of number of defendants, this is the largest trial in #HK’s post-handover history, bigger than the other mass riot trial of 44 arrested 7/28.
Hundreds of family & supporters (incl fellow protesters) are already gathered, far too many for the courtroom & lobby area outside it. Today the defendants’ll be formally charged & apply for bail. On past experience, most should be granted it. The hearing’ll probably take all day
Court has adjourned until 11:30, at which time, the defendants will begin to be processed in batches, in the new ‘assembly-line justice’ the #HK govt is using to prosecute large groups of protesters. It will be a very long day in court indeed.

I was moved by the speeches of ordinary #HK people this evening. In HK, the opportunity to speak truth to power is very rare & these brave, forthright people took full advantage of it. For non-Canto speakers, here are many of their main points. #香港人加油 scmp.com/news/hong-kong…
As expected, the CE had nothing to offer in response to these speakers besides the usual platitudes & repetitions of things she's said many times before. The only news: She promised arrested protesters would no longer be sent to the infamous San Uk Ling detention centre.
Incredible:Lam's rumored to still be in stadium more than hour after forum's end. Why didn't police spirit her out of there immediately? Protesters've occupied Oi Kwan Rd in back of stadium & blocked known entrances & exits. If she leaves now, police'll have to use massive force.

With the 1.7mil turnout in #HK today, the total number of demonstrators in anti-extradition/anti-govt protests has now surpassed the total population of HK:
So far, 7,564,440 demonstrators have participated in 61 demonstrations.
Astounding: Where else in history have you had the total number of participants in demonstrations exceed the size of the total population where the demonstrations occurred? #HK is truly in a class of its own.
The 1.7mil turnout today is even bigger than the 1.03mil turnout at the 1st mass march on #June9 & rivalled the 2mil on #June16. If anything, in the past 2 months, the movement's grown stronger.
