Second episode of the AmDipStories podcast, this on Hong Kong: https://amdipstories.org/hong-kong-the-chinese-are-coming/ Told some history before the handover, the night of, and now the pressures from China.

Not a good situation, but we need to focus our pressures on Beijing authorities and help Hong Kongers avoid getting caught in the middle.
