Hong Kong's embattled leader Carrie Lam on Tuesday said she hoped "calm" will prevail after a massive weekend march passed without clashes between police and demonstrators, but again refused to give ground to protester demands.
Aside from Lam's resignation, the complete withdrawal of the extradition bill, and the conduct of an independent inquiry, the protesters are also asking Lam to stop describing the protests as "rioting", and for her to issue a waiver of charges against those who were arrested. Protesters say Lam has not responded to demands, which include democracy, her resignation and an enquiry into the use of police force.

Meanwhile, Lam warned of the risk of pressure on the Hong Kong economy which shrank 0.4 percent in the April-June quarter from the previous quarter.
"The fact is that Carrie Lam doesn't see Hong Kong citizens as stakeholders in society, so what do we expect to talk about on the platform for dialogue?" "Actually, I think the data in the first half has not fully reflected the seriousness of the problem", she said.
