Hong Kong – is the pro-democracy movement defeated? | Conflict Zone Special

Hong Kong’s pro-democracy camp has resigned en masse after the government, using new powers granted by Beijing, ousted four opposition lawmakers on security grounds. Criticism has been swift with Britain accusing China of breaking its main bilateral treaty on Hong Kong by imposing new rules to disqualify the elected legislators. Activists and protestors have been fighting for their freedoms for more than a year, with their focus on preventing the introduction of a Chinese-written security law. It’s a battle they lost in the middle of the year. Since then, there’s been a renewed crackdown on opposition and the media, leading to some opposition figures fleeing the country. So does the pro-democracy movement even have a future or have they been defeated? Conflict Zone examines the evolving relationship between Hong Kong and China through recent interviews with leading Hong Kong and Chinese figures and it asks pro-democracy activist Nathan Law where the movement goes from here.
