What's really driving the unrest in Hong Kong? Retired professor Joseph Cheng, a senior figure in the Hong Kong Democracy movement, unpacks the rising tide of frustration behind the headlines. Cheng explains the root causes of the democracy protests — focusing on the economic despair and diminishing political voice in Hong Kong since the Handover in 1997, when China assumed control of the region from the United Kingdom. Cheng then looks ahead to the future to explain the range of likely outcomes in the months and years to come. Filmed on September 15, 2019 in Hong Kong. Show More
