Joshua Wong: A New Era in Hong Kong Democratic Movement

The Contemporary Asian Studies Student Union & the East Asian Studies Student Union are proud to present the UofT community with a unique opportunity to meet Joshua Wong, leader of the Hong Kong ‘Umbrella Revolution”.

Joshua Wong is the General Secretary of the new political party Demosisto in Hong Kong and the founder of Hong Kong student activist group Scholarism. He is best known for leading fellow students in the pro-democracy Umbrella Movement, a massive protest that demanded for genuine universal suffrage. He was named one of TIME Magazine’s ‘Most influential Teens of 2014’ and was nominated for TIME’s ‘2014 Person of The Year’.

Joshua will talk about the new era in HK Democracy Movement. He is hoping to have a dialogue with students and the general public during his first visit to Toronto.
