Hong Kong: A youth's voice you won't hear in western media
By Li Jingjing
For months now, Hong Kong has endured anti-government protests, some very violent. Young faces have been a feature of these demonstrations.
Many media outlets have highlighted protesters' frustrations, their distrust of the Chinese mainland, their demands and their so-called quest for democracy.
But in this video, a young person from Hong Kong tells a different story – one that is unlike what you've heard before.
Since protests started last year, many Hong Kong people who disagreed with protesters were bullied, threatened, even beaten up. Their personal information as well as that of their family members was leaked, exposing them to harassment. People disagreeing with protesters were forced into silence.
The young man I interviewed had the courage to speak out, but in order to protect his identity, his face and name will not be revealed.
