HK financiers challenge China in newspaper advert


HONG KONG: A group of pro-democracy financiers in Hong Kong took out an advert in the Wall Street Journal on Thursday challenging China to respect the city’s autonomy and introduce free elections. The advert, which appeared in the newspaper’s Asia edition, takes up a quarter page and lists “10 requests” to the Chinese Communist Party. They include asking it to “refrain from interfering in the administrative affairs of Hong Kong” and to “establish a system of genuine universal suffrage” as well as defend the city’s freedoms.
