Thousands of pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong have marched on the US consulate, calling for support from US lawmakers.
They want Congress and the US president to pass the proposed Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act - which would strengthen Washington's support for Hong Kong autonomy from China.
The cross-party bill, if passed, would reaffirm the US "commitment to democracy, human rights, and the rule of law at a time when these freedoms and Hong Kong’s autonomy are being eroded".
Protesters waved American flags and held signs asking Donald Trump 'to please liberate Hong Kong' during today's demonstrations.
One demonstrator told the South China Morning Post: "With the bill, we have the opportunity for Americans to put more pressure on the current government, to protect our rights.
"We trust the Trump government will work with the bill as intended, and I’m sure that they are watching today."
This weekend marks the first weekend of demonstrations since Hong Kong chief executive Carrie Lam announced the formal withdrawal of the controversial extradition bill that initially sparked the mass protests in June.
However, activists - who've now been protesting for 14 weekends in a row - said the move was "too little too late".
They have reiterated their other four demands, including for an investigation into police handling of the protests.
Local media reports there have been some clashes between riot police and demonstrators in the city centre on Sunday evening local time.
SCMP reports police fired tear gas in a number of city centre areas, with protesters setting fire to barricades at one subway station.
Separately, the prominent activist Joshua Wong was again arrested today while trying to leave the country for planned trips to Germany and the US.
1/ Joshua Wong delivered the following message through his legal representative:
I was arrested by police for “breaching bail conditions” this morning at the Airport’s customs and I am detained in custody now.

In a statement posted on Twitter, Mr Wong said the arrest is believed to have been a mistake - suggesting a court had previously approved the trips when granting the 22-year-old bail last month.
Mr Wong and fellow activist Agnes Chow were detained at the end of August on suspicion of unlawful assembly, with both later released on bail.
