Later, when the Hong Kong police was about to clear the Legislative Council, some protesters who had already left returned to the building and worked together to pull away the protesters who had planned to stay in the conference hall. When they carried away the left-behind people, they shouted "Let's go together." One of the protesters who returned to the building was interviewed by the media at that time, crying and saying that she was afraid that "I won't be able to see my comrades again tomorrow", so she decided to participate in this rescue operation.
Since then, "rising together and falling together" has become one of the most important action spirits in the anti-extradition campaign. Some media banner design described July 1 in 2019 as "the most angry July 1". From then on, July 1 is no longer just a day for parades, but a landmark day in the history of Hong Kong's protests. On July 1, 2020, the Hong Kong police for the first time opposed civil organizations to hold the July 1st march on the grounds of the severe COVID-19 (serious special infectious pneumonia, new coronary pneumonia, Wuhan pneumonia) epidemic. However, there were still citizens who spontaneously protested on Hong Kong Island that day and clashed with the police.
It was also the first day that the "Hong Kong National Security Law" came into effect. Some citizens were arrested for displaying protest slogans. The slogans that were often chanted by demonstrators during the anti-extradition campaign were also characterized by the police as an attempt to split the country or subvert state power. . On July 1, 2021, with the further disintegration of Hong Kong's civil society and the government's stronger suppression of the fighting camp, this July 1st became the most "calm" July 1st in history. The parade was still opposed by the police on the grounds of the epidemic. On that day, the Hong Kong police deployed heavily on Hong Kong Island, and the scenes of demonstrations and clashes that were still visible in previous years have almost disappeared.
