Why Hong Kong Students Protested

“What’s driven students into the streets? The fear that Hong Kong could become just another Chinese city.” All the students want is to preserve Hong Kong, and prevent it from becoming just like all the other Chinese cities. By being able to vote directly, they will be able to choose their own path to follow. “What made this possible—our free markets and our free press, our courts and our schools—are not gifts from the Chinese Communist Party; they are the fruits of our own labor.”
