Hong Kong police fired tear gas and rubber bullets at tens of thousands of protesters Wednesday who blocked access to the Legislative Council building, temporarily delaying a debate on a controversial extradition bill. Demonstrators, the majority of them young people, donned masks and cling film to shield themselves from pepper spray. Organizers built barricades and supplied snacks, water bottles, and in one instance, a Bible.
