They were joined by employees of the airport and airlines.
Participants in protest actions against the law on extradition to China occupied Hong Kong airport. According to The Guardian, they were joined by employees of the airlines. They accuse the government of involvement in the attack of gang members on the protesters.
The participants of the action are holding signs with calls to take part in the rallies. The screens play messages about protest actions, stylized as safety instructions on board the aircraft.

Protesters tell foreigners about the situation in the city and protests, according to Channel News Asia. Due to the fact that part of the staff joined them, the airport management had to attract additional forces to work.
Massive crowd but as with many protests in #HongKong, everyone is very well organised, moving over to another arrival area when the first got full.— Elizabeth Law 思敏 (@lizzlaw_) 26 July 2019

On June 12, mass demonstrations began in Hong Kong. Their participants oppose the adoption of a law according to which the authorities will be able to extradite suspects to mainland China, Macao and Taiwan, with which Hong Kong does not have an extradition agreement. According to various estimates, from 300 thousand to a million people took to the streets. Due to the fact that the protesters blocked the streets near government buildings, the police used pepper gas, batons and rubber bullets.
On June 15, the Hong Kong administration decided to suspend consideration of amendments to the law on extradition after mass protests in the city, but they continued. Residents require a complete abolition of the bill.
