Hong Kong Protests

by Avi Yemini

I’ve just returned home from almost a week in Hong Kong covering the biggest protests in the world.

What are the Hongkongers protesting?

There was a Chinese extradition bill which was suspended by the territory’s chief executive, Carrie Lam, in mid-June, but protesters want it officially withdrawn. In addition to demanding Lam’s resignation, the protesters are calling for:

    1. The complete withdrawal of the proposed extradition bill
    2. The government to withdraw the use of the word “riot” concerning the protests
    3. The unconditional release of arrested protesters and charges against them dropped
    4. An independent inquiry into police behaviour
    5. Implementation of genuine universal suffrage

In summary, the people of Hong Kong are fighting for their freedom and democracy. Hong Kong has been protesting for twelve weeks so far. Protests still manage to rally 1.7 million people.

My prediction: The Hong Kong protest movement isn’t going anywhere until their very reasonable demands are met.

I’ve never seen anything like this. One in about eight Hongkongers took to the streets and not one Police officer in sight. In fact, the only time I witnessed any violence was when the police hit the streets too.
