A recent poll shows that 71% of people in Taiwan support the protests against the extradition bill in Hong Kong while only 13% do not. That was the latest from a poll by the Taiwan Public Opinion Foundation. The survey was taken on June 17 after people in Hong Kong began protesting against an extradition bill.
The foundation’s chairman Yo Ying-lung also said that the Hong Kong protests have highlighted the Chinese threat to human rights in Hong Kong. This has led to greater support for Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen. [FULL STORY]
