Chow said, “Before, most people were silent, and few people stood up, but today many Hong Kongers are investing a lot of effort for democracy. I am still relatively pessimistic. The government still hasn’t come up with concessions, their position is very hard. The voice of the people is not able to enter the government’s ear. Resistance is not just a one-off. We must persist. Then Hong Kong will have hope.” (AP Photo/Vincent Yu)
