Hong Kong protesters need more support and asks Gwangju citizens for help

"오늘 홍콩은 39년 전 광주"…조슈아 웡 등 한국에 지지 호소


Well-known activists including Joshua Wong who played a key role in the Umbrella Movement of 2014, on Thursday (Oct 17) urged Korea and Gwangju City to step up support for Hong Kong's anti-government demonstrators, as the Hong Kong police are getting more violent.

 

We need to work together with many countries such as Korea, we must do everything we can to preserve freedom of expression and democracy in Hong Kong, Wong told a crowd of some 200 people, many of whom held up black umbrellas.

 

Umbrellas are the symbol of the anti-government protest movement that has rocked the semi-autonomous territory in recent months, posing the biggest challenge to Chinas rule since the citys handover from Britain in 1997.
