I am deeply disturbed by the events that unfolded on the 5th of August in Hong Kong.
For over two months, Hong Kong has stood at an impasse through millions of citizens protesting the fugitive extradition to China law–but the future of the protests seems uncertain.
It is 11 pm. Splashes of blood decorate the floor and shrill yells fill the halls of the Western Rail Line in Yuen Long—the police are not there.
Hong Kong's cultural identity, democracy, and freedom of speech is under threat from the looming superpower touching its northern border.
