Organisers cancel Hong Kong anti-extradition law march on Saturday after bid to overturn police ban fails

The Front filed an appeal on Friday. Senior counsel Hectar Pun, representing the coalition, had suggested that the march could adopt an alternative route with five starting and ending points. He said that organisers may agree to further conditions, but the ban was upheld by the Appeal Board on Public Meetings and Processions on Friday morning. Jimmy Sham, the convener of the Front, said it had no option but to cancel the march on Saturday since its principle was to hold physically and legally safe protests.
