Hong Kong Student Dies After Clash with Police Days Earlier

HeadlineNov 08, 2019

In Hong Kong, a student has died from injuries sustained after he fell during a clash between student protesters and police earlier this week. The death of Chow Tsz-lok has sparked widespread anger among student protesters, whose demonstrations have rocked Hong Kong. This is Hong Kong activist Joshua Wong.

Joshua Wong: “We mourn together, and we urge Hong Kong people: Wear black T-shirts together today and tomorrow to show our solidarity and unity. And now is the time for the government to set up the independent investigation on the clash. We need to know and seek for truth and justice, and which is really insane and unreasonable for how the government allow the police attempt to murder the Hong Kong people, which prove that reform the police force is a must.”
