Hong Kong is one of the bravest cities in the world right now.
Before 1997 Hong Kong was a british colony, but after it became free and made an indipendent government and constitution from both England and China. The Hong Kong citizens have press and word freedom, they are one of the few democratic points in which China's dictatorial policy could not enter, because of the entire population of this territory...but now China is pushing for incorporate Hong Kong, building one of the longest bridges ever made. Hong Kong has already a deadline, on the 1th of July 2047 Hong Kong is expected to fully become a part of China for an agreement signed years ago. The problem is, China and the friendly-China lobbies aren't waiting for the deal to expire and all it's getting more and more oppressive. Hong Kong citizens right now are making a lot of protests, they think that people can make the difference, they want their democracy, they don't want to be part of the China's mechanism, they are unique and strong in their values. In these days the protest leader, Joshua Wong, only a boy, is been arrested and maybe brought in China, like also hundreds of people.
For this reasons, i recommend you to see videos, and get informed, spread their message.
