Hong Kong Protesters to Steve Bannon: “Nazis are Not Welcome Here”

HeadlineSep 13, 2017

In Hong Kong, President Trump’s former chief political strategist Steve Bannon praised Chinese President Xi Jinping as a “wise leader” Tuesday, as he delivered a keynote address on economic nationalism and populism to a group of hedge fund managers and investors. Outside the forum, a group of protesters chanted “No Bannon, no racism” and held a banner reading “Nazis are not welcome here.” This is Sally Tang, one of the demonstrators.

Sally Tang: “Why is he here, with all the bankers, all the billionaires? It’s not for us. It’s not for the mass people and the majority of the people in Hong Kong. It’s just for the rich people. So, on the one hand, we are fighting in solidarity with the U.S. mass people against Donald Trump, and, on the other hand, we want to fight in unity, to fight against racism and nationalism.”
