They were all charged with either conspiring to cause public nuisance or inciting others to do so.
Nine activists targeted by police were defiant as they turned themselves in at police headquarters in the evening, accompanied by dozens of supporters.
Tens of thousands of student protesters took to the streets in 2014 in what became known as the Umbrella Movement to demand full democracy for Hong Kong.
Those who have worked with her say she is intelligent, hard-working and able to push controversial government policies, earning her the trust of Beijing factions who strongly lobbied for votes on her behalf. She must now try to assure Hong Kongers that she wants to introduce more democracy in the wake of fierce protests against Beijing's influence, while reassuring China's leaders who want no such thing.
Carrie Lam waves after she won the election for Hong Kong's Chief Executive in Hong Kong, China.
Days before the vote, Mr Leung warned that Hong Kong's autonomy would be at risk should the election committee pick a candidate whom the party disliked-a clear hint that its members should vote for Mrs Lam.
Despite active campaigning that saw the city's former finance secretary John Tsang become the favorite in polls of public opinion, and that political observers said was likely meant to have a behind-the-scenes effect on Beijing's heart and mind, he secured just 365 votes. But her vote total - 777 - was immediately seized upon as a nickname to deride the election process.

That has outraged Chinese leaders, who have clamped down hard on any hint of separatism in other regions like Tibet. While the 59-year-old veteran politician never gained the support of the Hong Kong people during her campaign, she was widely believed to have the backing of Beijing. "This is what makes young people very afraid of the Chinese model of governance being imported into Hong Kong".
