Recently, there have been massive protests in Hong Kong against a controversial bill, which could force people in Hong Kong to be extradited to stand trial in mainland China. This led to violent clashes between protesters and Hong Kong police. Given the unprecedented public backlash, Hong Kong’s leader, Carrie Lam, suspended the bill, but that didn’t stop nearly 2 million people from hitting the streets on June 16th to demand her resignation. Our Asian Boss team in Hong Kong hit the streets to see how big the protest really was and get some insight from Hongkongers on how they really feel about the whole situation.
The opinions expressed in this video are those of individual interviewees alone and do not reflect the views of ASIAN BOSS or the general Hong Kong population.
Special thanks to our Asian Boss team in Hong Kong.
