Andy Chan of the Hong Kong National Party delivered speech at Foreign Correspondents' Club of Hong Kong

August 14, 2018  

Andy Chan Tin-ho, a member of the pro-independence Hong Kong National Party, has been at the center of controversy over free speech and Hong Kong's autonomy. The Foreign Correspondents' Club of Hong Kong, which invited him, came under pressure itself from the Beijing regime as well as local authorities to cancel the event. Dozens of protesters gathered outside the club in central Hong Kong amid heavy police presence as what appeared to be mostly anti-independence demonstrators held up signs and shouted slogans.
