Kong Tsung-gan is a Hong Kong writer and activist. His new book is "Liberate Hong Kong: Stories from the Freedom Struggle."
One year ago, on June 9, over 1 million Hong Kong people marched against a government attempt to legalize extradition from Hong Kong to mainland China. Three days later, 100,000 surrounded government headquarters, preventing the Legislative Council from meeting to pass the legislation. On June 16, 2 million marched, the largest protest in Hong Kong history.
