The anniversary protest is also being held shortly after the government banned the pro-independence political party Hong Kong National Party (HKNP) on Monday, September 24, claiming it was a threat to national security.

Advice

Individuals in Hong Kong are advised to anticipate a heightened security presence and possible transportation delays in Admiralty and avoid all public gatherings as a precaution.
