HONG KONG - Extradition to China a Threat

"If bill allowing extradition to China passes, ‘nobody is safe’ in Hong Kong, says critic" PBS NewsHour 5/17/2019


SUMMARY:  In Hong Kong, crowds are taking to the streets to protest a new law that allows extradition of suspected criminals to China.  The city has long valued its independence, and opponents of the policy fear it will enable China to target critics and create a chilling effect on speech.  Nick Schifrin talks to Martin Lee, an attorney and the founding chairman of the first pro-democracy party in Hong Kong.
