Hong Kong National Party Convenor Andy Chan Ho-Tin outlined his party’s reasons for advocating independence for the city amid protests outside the FCC on Tuesday.
As the Hong Kong government moves to ban the party, Chan said that Hong Kong was being colonised by China, and the right to determine the city’s own future was being taken out of its hands. Speaking at a sold-out club lunch, he also warned that the city was no longer a place that could claim it upheld freedom of speech.
