PM Dawn Unfortunately this seems like a lost battle at forehand: other countries won't dare to interfere. With Taiwan it could be different, but not with Hong Kong. Yes, I'm a pessimist
PM Dawn were there also western students studying there involved in the protests?
Danang With many peaceful protests around the world failing (Hong Kong with Anti-Extradition Law, Indonesia with Omnibus law, Myanmar with coup d'etat), how does/should one stay optimistic in with the prospect of continuing to protest peacefully? Is there a more affective alternative to make a change? Perhaps more impactful without getting into a civil war?
Lucas What should have been a better strategy for Hong Kong in hindsight?
Lucas Where the makers of the film persecuted? Is there some sort of freedom of press these days?
Lucas What can the Western world do and had the Hong Kong protesters expected more support from the west?
PM Dawn Most people in HK had it 'good' 'under' the British, but isn't there any resentment towards colonialism?
Lucas Are there people in China mainland who openly support the Hong Kong protests and are they persecuted if they do so?
Tim K What were the protesters' demands?
Lucas What did the protesters in fact hoped for? To what extend where the protests 'succesful'
Tim K What was the impact of the protests on HK government?
Tim K @director: are you scared for repercussions for having released this footage?
Studium Generale TU/e If you have a question for digital rights activist Glacier Kwong, who will be reflecting on the documentary shortly, then don't hesitate to drop your question in this chat box.

Maaike What kind of things can we do from here to help?
Danang I have asked this earlier on in the movie but I'm still curious. How do you stay optimistic during these times of opposition from the government?
Tim K I'm really enjoying Galcier Kwongs interview. Really clear and sincere answers.
Nikki M Agreed!
Danang Given your involvement in the opposition, have your family members and close connections been affected back in Hong Kong?
