One of Hong Kong’s most important young activists was standing in front of a courthouse talking to reporters. A few others, including Ong, are on trial for involvement in last year’s democratic movement.

China enacted security laws in troubled Hong Kong last week. The law prohibits sabotage, terrorism and alliances with foreign powers. But the inflexible Ong (23) said, “We have to let the world know that now is the time to stand by Hong Kong.”

He added that they could not ignore and silence the voices of Hong Kongers. We will not stop the freedom struggle. I will not surrender to Beijing.
