Joshua Wong, one of the figureheads of Hong Kong’s pro-democracy movement is drawing official complaints from China with his tour of foreign countries. Wong currently is in Germany where he’s met foreign minister Heiko Maass, a meeting that led to a diplomatic complaint from China, which called the meeting disrespectful. Wong said the Hong Kong protest movement would continue despite the government dropping a controversial extradition bill. The 22-year-old also spoke at the German Parliament. He’d been detained for 24 hours by authorities at Hong Kong Airport before he was allowed to leave the country.
