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.
