Defiance in Hong Kong

Two elected officials in Hong Kong's Legislative Council tried, for the fourth time, to take the oath of office while still maintaining that "Hong Kong is not China." That led to upset in the chamber and for pro-independence lawmakers Yau Wai-ching and Sixtus “Baggio” Leung.

Of course my heart is with Wai-ching and "Baggio" as it was with the young people who demonstrated for democracy there a couple of years ago BY LAYING DOWN IN THE MIDDLE OF BUSY STREETS!!!! But I wish their hearts to continue beating.
