01: Hong Kong’s Existential Crisis

This is a conversation with JP, a Hong Kong activist with Lausan, a left-wing and decolonial group based out of Hong Kong and its diaspora.

It is available on Apple Podcasts, Anchor, Breaker, Google Podcasts, Radio Public, Spotify, Pocket Casts, and RSS. More to come!

Lausan proposes numerous fascinating analyses of Hong Kong’s ongoing situation.

They’ve also hosted webinars, such as “Uniting Beyond Borders” with Au Loong-Yu, JS Tan, Shan Windscript and Ailing, among others.

In our conversation, JP and I spoke about the meaning behind the ongoing protests in Hong Kong. What are they about? What are some of their achievements? Some of their weaknesses? Are the recent pro-democracy gains in the elections significant? What is the significance of time in the Hong Kong protests? How has the Coronavirus epidemic contributed to rising xenophobia towards mainland Chinese people? What are some differences and similarities between the protests in Hong Kong and those in Lebanon?
