Mass arrest of protesters on Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong, November 18, 2019

Arrests and trials of Hong Kong protesters

As of January 27, at least 7,165 protesters have been arrested and 1,003 are on trial.

This is a follow-up to an article that tracked protests and protest-related arrests in the Hong Kong freedom struggle up through November 20, 2019. That article has been split in two, with this one following arrests and trials and another following protests. The information here will be updated regularly.

Numbers of arrests are based on Hong Kong police figures. Numbers of trials are based on figures from Arrested Persons Concern Group (被捕人士關注組; Telegram: @youarenotalonehk), with two exceptions noted in the table.

Below the table are two additional tables: a list of protesters convicted and sentenced, and a list of political and protest leaders arrested and charged since the start of the protests.
