A raw look at the protestors
For their latest international cover, TIME Magazine has featured young Hong Kong citizens currently taking part in the protests for their country’s freedom.
ICYDK, Hong Kong is still in an all-out protest for their democracy and autonomy against an extradition bill pushing to implement the “one country, two systems” form of governance with Mainland China.
Meanwhile, TIME’s cover story written by Laignee Barron takes readers into a personal look into the youth fighting for the nation’s freedom. With their ages ranging from 15 to 23 years old, the masked young interviewees are openly willing to die to save their country from China’s ruling.
‘I would rather die than be arrested. If I die, at least the fury would sustain this movement.’ said a 21-year old HK protester.
