The Storming of Legislative Council refers to the siege, break-in, and subsequent occupation of the Legislative Council Complex in Hong Kong by anti-government activists on 1 July 2019 during the campaign to halt the enactment of the Fugitive Offenders amendment bill. Hundreds of protesters broke through the glass walls and metal doors and entered the building, ransacked and vandalised the interior with anti-government and anti-PRC slogans. It is considered a watershed event in the 2019–2020 Hong Kong protests. Nine days later, on 9 July, the Chief Executive, Carrie Lam, announced that the extradition bill was "dead".
