What’s happening in Hong Kong?
Hong Kong has been a leading trade and financial centre for decades. In June 2019, the government of the former British colony presented a bill on extradition to China. That unleashed massive but peaceful demonstrations which eventually led to further demands for democratic reforms. What will happen when the city state becomes a full part of China in 2047?
Lawyers and activists Antony Dapiran and Jason Y Ng in Hong Kong have both recently published books on the protest movement. They are at LitFestBergen to tell us what is happening and what the future might bring. Their conversation will be moderated by Kjersti Løken Stavrum, chair of Norwegian PEN.
