Hong Kong – November 2019

I’ve done a couple of events recently about Hong Kong, including last Monday this week with three other former Consuls General at University of Denver (video not up yet) and last night at a Brown Community discussion. The students who grew up on Hong Kong were most expressive and interesting, but I thought it might be useful to post what I said.  Here are my notes.  Summary:

  • unlikely to see a short term resolution.
  • Over time, repression might work, demonstrators may get tired, 
    • but still must solve underlying  problems — which are political.

Full text that I used is here.
