What next for Hong Kong’s extradition bill protesters?

David Wong has spent more nights sleeping outside the Hong Kong legislature in recent weeks than he has in his soft, cosy bed at home. Wong, 24, is among the more dedicated of the protesters demanding the government abandon a  bill that would allow for extraditions to mainland Chinaand other places the city does not currently have agreements with. He has spent days on end at the makeshift camps outside the legislature that are the protesters’ de facto headquarters, handing out supplies like umbrellas, goggles, water and food, and discussing with fellow activists the next course of action.
«Last week, I went home to sleep on only three nights,» he said. «I must come forward to stop this bill.»
