Approximately two million protesters went out in Hong Kong and flooded the streets of the city on Sunday, June 16, 2019.
If you think that is already astounding, it really is. What is even more astounding is the condition of the roads after the protest.
They left the roads spotless – the same condition prior to the protest.

This is the second time this week that the protesters cleaned the streets up after the massive demonstration.
It’s 2:30am and they have teams walking through the protest site with giant garbage bags and collecting rubbish.

On June 12, they also cleaned up and left the roads spotless after the protest.
Many protesters decided to stay behind and work through the night to remove the garbage left by millions of people.
Author Kong Tsung-gan wrote on Twitter in the early hours of Monday morning: “Occupiers are doing one last sweep for rubbish.”
“Two million people marched here yesterday, it was occupied all night, and there isn’t a scrap of rubbish on the road,” he said.
