Martin Lee Calls on Gov’t to Heed Hong Kong Demonstrators’ Demands

Following another weekend of mass protests in Hong Kong, this marks 13 weeks of protesters calling for greater political freedom and the scrapping of a controversial extradition bill with China.

For the past two days, thousands of students have boycotted the beginning of classes.

On Sunday, protesters returned to Hong Kong’s airport, where they barricaded roads in an attempt to shut down the airport again.

On Saturday, police fired tear gas and water cannons during a chaotic night of street demonstrations.

Some masked protesters were seen throwing Molotov cocktails at the police. Earlier today, Carrie Lam denied she ever offered to resign.

From Hong Kong, Democracy Now! speaks with Martin Lee, the founding chair of the Democratic Party of Hong Kong.
