Hong Kong: Tips for Trips and Study Abroad

August 14, 2019
Hong Kong has experienced over two months of protests - the largest protests the city has ever had. Groups sometimes as large as a million people have gathered to protest against what they feel is China's infringement on their local government and rights. Most of the protests have been peaceful, but some have turned confrontational or resulted in violent clashes. There have been times the protests and confrontations have spilled over into neighborhoods other than those where the police have permitted marches or rallies. These demonstrations, which can take place with little or no notice, are likely to continue.
