• Student leaders face HK city elders in televised debate


    HONG KONG: Student protest leaders on Tuesday night debated Hong Kong officials on the future of democracy in this former British colony, the first time the two sides have confronted one another since street demonstrations erupted in late September. The meeting was broadcast live on Hong Kong television, giving residents a chance to hear the students make their case against the system. It was a reminder of how different Hong Kong remains from the rest of tightly controlled China and of the freedoms many fear could disappear if they don’t stand up to Beijing.
