Recently, about 2 million people flooded the streets of Hong Kong to protest a bill that would allow for the arrest and transfer of Hong Kong residents and foreign visitors to mainland China with very little safeguards. To give you a better idea of how huge this protest was, that’s about 1 in every 4 citizens of Hong Kong participating. This week we explain why this bill is so dangerous and why this could be the beginning of the end of a free Hong Kong.

    Interesting interview. Does anyone really think that Hong Kong will remain ‘more’ free as the years go along. This is only going to get worse and neighbors being grabbed and ending up in a Chinese gulag will make sure that the majority of people succumb to Communist rule.

    It seems like it’s only a matter of time now. Could take a few decades but the loss seems inevitable :(
