This week we examine the protests in Hong Kong. Here’s a quick note from our editor about what’s covered in ‘Hong Kong: Protest city’.

Two systems, one country. That was how it was supposed to work. Over the past two decades, since the handover of Hong Kong to China in 1997, there have been both tensions and protests in the city-state. This time, however, it’s different.

The people of Hong Kong enjoy greater freedoms than their mainland counterparts. There is an elected legislature, a capitalist economy and supposed universal suffrage.

Simmering tensions erupted after a bill allowed criminals, arrested in Hong Kong, to be sent to China. Both pro-democracy and anti-communist protestors took to the streets. Starting on March 31, protests have continuously rocked the city for nearly half a year.

Despite recent concessions, there is no end in sight. Dive into our latest Collection to see the protest backstory, what the reaction was, and what might happen next.
