Upcoming 5 days
Living in Hong Kong is to witness history as it unfolds. The city was handed over from the British Crown to the Chinese Communist Party in 1997, and is globally known as a skyscraper-lined economic powerhouse. It is also the site of intense political struggle. The talk brings together two Hong Kong activists who have shaped historical events and an historian who has studied them.
