Hong Kong Universities Are Being Strangled; We Must Take a Stand

Updated: Apr 5

Hong Kong’s universities, long a beacon of academic freedom, are under threat and risk losing their autonomy.

On November 18, 2019, police forces stormed a university campus event held by antigovernment protesters, making arrests and threatening to meet further resistance with live rounds before retreating in the face of a growing fire. Several protesters were arrested while trying to run.
