In Hong Kong, 24-year-old pro-democracy activist Agnes Chow was released on Saturday after spending seven months in prison for her role in the 2019 protests. Two other activists convicted at the same time as her, Joshua Wong and Ivan Lam, they’re still in jail.
His release coincides with the second anniversary of the massive protests in the former British colony, where a tense repression continues. The authorities prohibit any type of concentration, supposedly to fight the pandemic, although last month only three new infections were registered. Chow is part of the generation of activists in the 2014 “Umbrella Revolution,” which fueled the massive pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong two years ago.
