It was the first time the police force exercised their new powers under the contentious legislation enacted the previous day by Chinese mainland authorities. The 10 were among about 370 people detained mainly for taking part in illegal assemblies, disorderly conduct and possession of offensive weapons. Despite the new risk of prosecution, thousands of anti-government protesters took to the streets to protest against the new law, openly defying a Covid-19 ban on the annual July 1 march.Video source: SCMP/Reuters Follow us on: Website: https://scmp.com Facebook: https://facebook.com/scmp Twitter: https://twitter.com/scmpnews Instagram: https://instagram.com/scmpnews Linkedin: https://www.linkedin.com/company/south-china-morning-post/
