The story of the popular protest that shook Hong Kong in 2019. The movement started in response to a proposed law that would have allowed the extraditions to mainland China of Hong Kong citizens, but soon morphed into a larger revolt against China’s control over the semi-autonomous city. The population of the former British colony is struggling with accepting China’s rule of law, which comes with reduced freedoms and civil rights. Into the frameset of the harshest economic and geopolitical confrontation between USA and China, rallies and marches calling for democratic freedoms and independent inquiry, became the expression of a discontent, likely to reverberate for a long time.
