Avi Yemini – RAW! Hong Kong protesters block traffic: “Tense, surreal!”
Wouldn’t it be amazing if the spirit of democracy were to come to China, and from Hong Kong?
Two million Hong Kong people are taking to the streets to protest for freedom in China. Yet the world is largely silent.
But these Hong Kong protests are different — they’re explicitly about freedom.
So we’re sending a reporter to Hong Kong — Our friend Avi Yemini, the Australian with TR.News who I’ve gotten to know over the past year.
I’ve seen his journalism, both in the UK and Australia and he’s really good. He has courage; he’s not afraid of a bit of tear gas; he’s got a great sense of humour, and he cares about freedom.
He has landed in Hong Kong and for the next four days, and he’s going to be filing special guest reports for us about these protests.
Who are the protesters? What are the police like? Are people worried about China invading? Are people hopeful Trump will do more
We’ve sent Avi and a cameraman — so that’s two flights, and a hotel, and taxi fare and meals. The total cost will be around $4,000 by the time we’re done — if you can help us chip in, please do, by clicking here.
We want the world to see the truth. Are you with the people of Hong Kong? I hope so.
You can watch all of Avi’s reports on this page.
