I hope these courageous, freedom-loving protesters succeed and their message of hope catches on in other countries desperate for the Hong Kong formula.
On Wednesday morning, Hong Kong Chief Carrie Lam announced a formal withdrawal of the extradition bill that prompted more than three months of protests for freedom.
Hong Kongers are fighting for something we Americans know very well: freedom and the right to self-determination. We can help them, and we should.
The maturity and dignity that Hong Kongers are demonstrating while protesting, and their devotion to political freedom, powerfully rebuts Beijing’s assertion that democracy is incompatible with Chinese people and culture.
Hong Kong has been, until now, one of the freest places in Asia. A new extradition bill, only the latest in Beijing’s demands, threatens that status.
