745am Jacob and Zane speak with expat Hong Kong resident and activist Eric about the three month long (and ongoing) wave of protests that have rocked the island. Eric refutes some of the arguments made by those in the 'pro China camp' such as the protests being organised by the CIA or that protestors have nothing to fear from the proposed extradition bill. Eric says the protests are ultimately about trying to make China honour its promise first made in 1984 that Hong Kong would have universal suffrage and free elections once handed back to China by Britain.
