freedom and democracy. Su was speaking on Tuesday.

Hong Kong has seen mass protests for ten straight weeks over a controversial extradition bill. On Monday, the Hong Kong airport was shut down due to protests. In recent weeks, clashes between police and pro-democracy demonstrators have become increasingly violent, with one young woman badly injured in the eye on Sunday.

Su said the situation in Hong Kong is a lesson for Taiwan.

On the other hand, [we] must protect Taiwan’s sovereignty, freedom and democracy, so that Taiwan won’t be like Hong Kong," said Su.     [FULL  STORY]
