HONG KONG, July 1 (Reuters) - Hundreds of thousands of people are expected to take to the streets on Monday for a rally to mark the 22nd anniversary of Hong Kong's handover from British to Chinese rule, as anger over an extradition bill plunges the city into political turmoil.
Opponents of the now-suspended extradition bill, which would allow people to be sent to mainland China for trial in courts controlled by the Communist Party, fear it is a threat to Hong Kong's much-cherished rule of law and are demanding it be scrapped and embattled leader Carrie Lam step down.
Here are quotes from people on the streets of Hong Kong:
"Hong Kong is where I'm from. I need to show my opposition to China," said Kenneth Wah, 20.
"In the past few years people have been getting more active, because they found the peaceful way is not working," said a 24-year-old man surnamed Chen. "If the police weren't so active, not as many people would have come out."
"I come to the July 1 protests every year, but this time I came in particular because of the extradition bill," said Elzevir Young, 59.
"This is the first time I have come for the July 1 protest. I came because Carrie Lam will not withdraw the extradition law," said a man in his 20s surnamed Lau.
"I stayed over since 1:30 a.m. ... I will not stay overnight because our goal has failed already. We failed to stop the flag-raising ceremony," said Johnny So, 18, referring to the annual flag-raising event that took place early on Monday.
"I won't go to the march because there will be an escalation," said Bonnie Fong, 26. "There will be some clashes." (Compiled by Anne Marie Roantree Editing by Paul Tait)
