Live or leave? Meet with Hong Kong protesters who have fled to Canada to seek asylum | Instant News


Carrie’s trip to Hong Kong International Airport is not interesting. Even though he hasn’t slept for several days, he is on guard – paying extra attention to his surroundings and being careful with every step he takes while trying to pass through the gate. After the plane took off, he fell into a deep sleep when the plane floated through the clouds.

“I was left with two choices,” said the 26-year-old asylum seeker who uses a pseudonym. “I must escape from Hong Kong or face political persecution.”

Leaving Hong Kong is a difficult decision that must be taken. Carrie’s activism can be traced back to 2012 where she fought against a moral and national education curriculum along with more than 120,000 protesters. Since then, he has participated in Hong Kong’s pro-democracy movements, including large-scale protests since June 2019.
