What it’s like to spend four days at the Occupy protest camps in Hong Kong.
ONG KONG, China — Last week, I spent four days at the Occupy protest camps at Admiralty and Mong Kok in Hong Kong. I talked to everyone who was willing to talk to me, and I asked them all of my burning questions about why they thought that protesting for democracy was so important. I was struck by the students’ pure intentions and the complexity of the political issues. Watch the video above to see what people told me.
COMING SOON: I’m in a low bandwidth area of the world right now, but many more photos and an essay about spending time with the protesters at Occupy Hong Kong will be coming soon.
