Eins:Eins Au Long Yu: Left Activist Hongkong

Since half a year Hogkong is erupted by a massive political revolt. In the core of this revolt is the youth, fighting day by day against the police with militant and civil disobedient methods. But its also official, that the governement has lost the support of the population: in the last district local elections a huge majority supported the oppositional candidates from the protest and democracy camp in the historical highest turnout.
In late summer we met Au Loong Yu in Hongkong Mongkok. He is an independet left activist, who lives and works his livetime in Hongkong. We talk with him about the background of the Hongkong-Protest: How is the protest organized? What are the social and economic reasons? How much is there a conflict of identities? What is the role of USA and how much is a danger of an Ukraine-Scenario?
