Emily Lau is one of the most famous politicians in Hong Kong.

She was the leader of the Democratic Party and the first woman to be elected into Hong Kong's legislature.

A former journalist, Emily is a passionate defender of press freedoms and free speech. She shares some important lessons for anyone who cares about freedom of expression and democracy.

Emily joined Misha Zelinsky for a chinwag about the current mood in Hong Kong, what ‘one country, two systems’ actually means, how the Beijing crackdown is hardening the position of protestors, how young people are inspiring their fellow citizens, why western governments and businesses should stand up to CCP bullying and what a peaceful resolution to the crisis looks like.

It’s an inspiring and illuminating chat!
