In Hong Kong, adding a firm voice to calls for protester’s call for Chief Executive Carrie Lam’s resignation is Joshua Wong, the most recognizable face of the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong. He was released from prison after serving a reduced sentence for his role in the Umbrella Movement of 2014. DW Correspondent Phoebe Kong caught up with Wong for his take on what could be the largest ever anti-government protests in the history of Hong Kong. Organizers claim nearly two million people were on the streets of the autonomous Chinese city on Sunday.
