Description

Hong Kong’s Joshua Wong Chifung and other prominent pro-democracy activists on Tuesday, September 3rd, arrive in Taiwan for a two-day visit.

Wong, a major figure in Hong Kong’s ongoing pro-democracy protests, urges Taiwan people to organize their own demonstrations before China’s National Day in a bid to put more pressure on the Chinese Communist Party.

Wong, who is the secretary-general Hong Kong pro-democracy party Demosistō, tells reporters at the Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport that the key purpose of his two-day visit to Taiwan is to rally more support for the Hong Kong protesters.

Wong says, “The 'One-Country, Two Systems' is fully collapsed already.

“We urge the people in Taiwan, that it is time to safeguard Hong Kong, and to support people in Hong Kong, to fight for free elections. We are strongly aware of the ‘White Terror’ and the chilling effect generated by Beijing on Hong Kong and Taiwan. Now it is time for us to show solidarity."

The 22-year-old activist-politician touches on past mutual support.

"What we hope is to urge people in Taiwan to have mass mobilization before first of October. … But more important is how Hong Kong people in the past, supported the Sunflower Movement, and how Taiwanese people supported the Umbrella Movement five years ago."

"Now it is time for us to show solidarity," says Wong, hopeful that Hong Kong will one day be like Taiwan.
