Hong Kong Activists Sentenced To Prison For Protesting Communist Government

A trio of young Hong Kong oppo­si­tion activists have been sen­tenced after plead­ing guilty to orga­niz­ing a demon­stra­tion last year as part of a larg­er protest against Hong Kong’s reced­ing autonomy.

Their sen­tenc­ing on Wednes­day is the lat­est blow to the region’s oppo­si­tion move­ment which seeks to pre­serve Hong Kong’s lim­it­ed auton­o­my from Beijing.

The three — Joshua Wong, Agnes Chow and Ivan Lam — have been held with­out bail since plead­ing guilty in late Novem­ber for orga­niz­ing and par­tic­i­pat­ing in the protest last year that sur­round­ed police head­quar­ters. Wong, Chow and Lam, all in their 20s, are also found­ing mem­bers of the now-dis­band­ed Demo­sis­to oppo­si­tion polit­i­cal party.
