SCRIPT
Protesters rallied outside the Hong Kong's Legislative Council (LegCo) building on Wednesday, as Chief Executive Carrie Lam was to deliver her annual policy address.
The protesters chanted and held a cardboard cutout of Lam, depicting her as closing her ears and wearing a mask over her eyes. Riot police could be seen outside the LegCo building to ensure security.
Co-founder of the League of Social Democrats (LSD), Leung Kwok-hung, informally known as 'Long Hair', also joined the rally. "I don't think Carrie Lam can see us, can [have] dialogue with us. So we request the police to negotiate," said Leung.
Lam was forced to suspend her annual policy address amid the heckling from pro-democracy lawmakers, causing the session to be adjourned.
Following the incident, Lam delivered her address via a video link.
