The 23-year-old Joshua Wong is the secretary general of the Hong Kong democracy group “Hong Kong Chronicles”. He once participated in political protests for advocating Hong Kong’s broader democracy and was arrested and imprisoned many times.

Yang Guang, a spokesperson for the Hong Kong and Macao Affairs Office of the State Council of China, said that Joshua Wong has proclaimed the so-called “self-determination” and other “Hong Kong independence” propositions over the years. In this “remediation storm, he frequently swayed to foreign forces and pledged for intervention.” However, Joshua Wong did not ask Hong Kong for independence when interviewed by the media. Beijing seems very reluctant to listen to his dialogue seriously.
