Original text by 楊政賢 from Inmedia.

A Hong Kong University human rights law graduate student writes about the recent student strike, calling upon his fellow students not to lose hope so quickly.

The strikes center around concerns over the university’s declining autonomy and over the disproportionate power that the Hong Kong Chief Executive has over its governing body. More about the strikes from Hong Kong Free Press.
