Freedom of the media and culture in Hong Kong amid growing China influence



This summer I gave a talk at Re:publica, one of the largest conferences on internet and society in Berlin, Germany. 

Entitled Freedom of the media and culture in Hong Kong amid growing China influence, the talk evolved around the recent political events in Hong Kong and how the freedom of the media and culture in the city is under threat.

It was a first for me to share these stories with a foreign public audience who might not be very familiar with the history and the situation of Hong Kong and even Asia as a whole. But I felt that it was my responsibility to share these stories with the world whenever I have the opportunity to do so. 

I gave a factual account of what has happened in Hong Kong, from the attack of former Ming Pao chief editor to the Umbrella Movement and the Lunar New Year violent clash dubbed as "fishball revolution" (though I never agreed it was a "revolution").
