Joshua Wong Urges Taiwanese to Show Support for Hong Kong

Joshua Wong Urges Taiwanese to Show Support for Hong Kong

Tuesday, 03 September 2019 07:38 AM

TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) — Hong Kong democracy activist Joshua Wong, a central figure in the territory's ongoing mass anti-Beijing protests, has urged Taiwanese people to hold their own demonstrations as they face growing pressure from China.

Wong, secretary general of Hong Kong pro-democracy group Demosisto, arrived in Taiwan on Tuesday for a series of events organized by local political groups.

Some activists in Hong Kong fear Chinese authorities will crack down on the protests ahead of National Day, which this year marks the 70th anniversary of Communist rule in China.

Beijing has claimed sovereignty over self-ruled Taiwan since the two separated during a civil war in the 1940s, and has threatened the use of force, if needed, to unify the two sides.
