Joshua Wong - Demonstrator in Hong Kong


Nearly 60 years ago my father, then a medical student, helped lead demonstrations against the communist government in Czechoslovakia.  So you can imagine that I am loving the actions of the students in Hong Kong while worrying about the repercussions that might come against them.

At any rate, above is a primer on Joshua Wong who is being touted as one of the leaders of the demonstrations.  Here is more on him.  Hong Kong and its status relative to China is fair game for the AP Comparative exam.

You know, I have to say that I am also proud of these students’ actions. As a matter of fact, I don’t recall them doing anything like that before. But I do understand that they are just fighting for their rights. I would do exactly the same if I had troubles here in my country. I just wish American students were using their writing skills much more often, instead of choosing to rather buy essay online from some service. We need to fight for our future. Who else but us can do it? No one!
