Lawyers at the Frontline

Over 2,600 people have been arrested since the extradition protests started in June. Nearly a third of them are under 18 years old.

When police starts making mass arrests after clashes with the protesters, that’s when “volunteer lawyers” take to the street to start their night of pro bono legal assistance for arrested protesters.
