Continuous Rebellion in Hong Kong
Au Loong Yu gives a detailed account of the development of the Hong Kong rebellion while focusing on the role of the different protestors’ camps, as well as on the contribution of the labour movement to the mobilizations. Despite Hong Kong society’s deeply entrenched conservatism and belief in the market, the massive demonstrations have facilitated the participation of large sections of the population hitherto relegated to the political margins. The recent Hong Kong elections saw the opposition win a landslide victory, possibly showing the limits of China’s grip over the island.
