  • CE's resignation is the only way out: Joshua Wong
Demosisto leader Joshua Wong said on Monday that an apology from Carrie Lam over the extradition bill crisis is not enough and the Chief Executive has to quit her post.

The activist had arrived to a rousing reception outside Legco where hundreds of protesters continued their sit-in.

Wong, who was released from prison barely a few hours before, said he had come to see the protesters without even changing his clothes.

"I am wearing the same clothes when I went to the prison on May 16," he said.

He said he was very touched by the images of the protests when he watched them on television while he was in prison. "It’s time for me to join this fight,” he said.

Wong said an apology from Lam is not enough and the Chief Executive has to resign.

Wong was one of the main leaders of the 2014 Occupy protests which lasted 79 days and involved demonstrators taking over some key areas around Legco.

After the huge rally on Sunday, hundreds of anti-extradition bill protesters continued to occupy the areas that students led by Wong had taken over five years ago.

They moved away from Harcourt Road on Monday morning, only after negotiating with the police.
