Martin Lee is a longtime leader of Hong Kong’s democracy movement and 1997 winner of NED’s Democracy Award. He spoke with NED recently about the 20th anniversary of the handover of Hong Kong from Britain to China. He also reflected on handing the torch of the democracy movement to young leaders like Joshua Wong. Wong was arrested on June 28, 2017, along with fellow student leaders Nathan Law and Agnes Chow. Their arrests came in advance of Xi Jinping’s visit to Hong Kong to mark the anniversary of the handover.
