大批市民不滿人大常委會通過「港版國安法」，為抗議惡法，數千人3時在銅鑼灣崇光百貨外開始流水式遊行，向中環遮打道進發，高呼「光復香港 時代革命」、「五大訴求 缺一不可」，並舉手示意。
The July 1 march organised by the Civil Human Right Front (CHRF) was opposed by the police for the first time since 1997. Earlier, the appeal was filed with the Public Assembly and Procession Appeals Committee, and the committee rejected the appeal for the risk of spreading coronavirus.
Legislator Eddie Chu, Democratic Party Wu Chi-wai, Deputy Convener of CHRF Figo Chan, District Councillors Chui Chi-kin, Bull Tsang and Chan Wing-tai took over the march in their personal capacity. They called on citizens to take to the streets. The march will meet at 2 pm and depart at 3 pm. The route will start at East Point Road outside Sogo department store in Causeway Bay and march to Chater Road in Central.
The theme is the same as the July 1 march of the CHRF. It is “Rebel Against the National Security Law and insist on 5 Demands.” The National Security Law was passed during the July 1st march, but they will not restrict what slogans are used and what placards are held.
A large number of citizens were dissatisfied that the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress passed the Hong Kong version of the National Security Law and wish to protest against the evil law. At 3 pm, the march started outside the Sogo Department Store in Causeway Bay, heading towards Chater Road in Central. People chanted “Free Hong Kong, Revolution of our Time”, “5 Demands, Not One Less” and and gestured with their hands.
The police raised the purple (first time, new for National Security) at least 5 times and blue (illegal assembly) flag at least 20 times as warnings, and repeatedly pulled up blockade lines at Hennessy Road to stop the public from moving forward; Causeway bay looked like under martial law. However, the citizens marched fluidly, turning into sidestreets, and then continued after the blockades. They marched towards the direction of Central, undaunted by the threat of 6,000 riot police deployed.
