Thousands of demonstrators angered by the anti-mask law returned to Hong Kong’s streets on Sunday, after its introduction late on Friday sparked violence that ground the city to a halt.

Two groups of anti-government demonstrators, many of them covering their faces, are marching on routes from East Point Road in Causeway Bay to Chater Garden in Central, and from Salisbury Road in Tsim Sha Tsui to Maple Street Playground in Sham Shui Po, in a coordinated action that started at 2pm. It is the third straight day of protests against the ban, which came into force at midnight on Friday. Radicals of the anti-government movement have vandalised railway facilities and shops as part of the backlash, which led to the closure of the entire railway network on Saturday.

Hong Kong’s embattled leader Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor appealed to the public on Saturday to condemn the protest violence as she defended her decision to impose the ban by invoking colonial-era legislation for the first time in more than half a century. Follow our live blog below for the latest updates. Reporting by Ng Kang-chung, Fiona Sun, Simone McCarthy, Jeffie Lam, Laurie Chen, Chris Lau, Karen Zhang, Zoe Low and Georgina Lee.

These demonstrations  have lasted too long.  It really hurts hong kong economy.  The government and demonstrators should try to find out a common ground to solve the difference.
