The mood in the protest has been relaxed so far, with little indication of the violence that clouded the demonstrations on Wednesday.

Compared to the city police, however, there is still considerable anger.

When police admiralty drive on a bridge across the crowd in the Admiralty, the crowd breaks out in a buzz.

The city was brought to a standstill on Wednesday when tens of thousands of mostly young demonstrators blocked the road to the Legislative Council buildings where legislators were to debate the extradition law.

Up to 5,000 riot police were deployed to break up the crowd, leading to violent clashes and allegations of police brutality.

Videos of Wednesday's protests showed police spraying tear gas directly into the faces of protesters and beating them with batons.

Many of today's demonstrators hold signs that condemn police action. The protest organizers have since called on the authorities to drop the charges against the 11 people arrested during the protests on Wednesday. Hector Retamal / AFP / Getty Images “/>
