Jimmy Lai and the Fight for Freedom in Hong Kong

by | Nov 6, 2019 | Asia

In this special edition of Uncommon Knowledge with Peter Robinson recorded in front of a live audience at the Hoover Institution, Peter interviews Jimmy Lai, the entrepreneur and leader in the fight to preserve freedom in Hong Kong. Lai describes the struggles he has endured including having his home fire-bombed, his family harassed, and his business threatened by the Chinese Communist Party.

They also discuss the Trump administration’s response to the Hong Kong protest movement, how the NBA and other American businesses found themselves in an awkward position between their business interests and their politics, and what Lai believes to be China’s ultimate goal: to make Hong Kong just another city in Communist China.

Finally, Lai asks Americans to keep Hong Kong at the forefront of their thoughts and not to give up on them.
