Hong Kong 'will be over' if extradition law is passed, activist says

TOKYO -- While Hong Kong citizens take to the streets protesting against a controversial extradition law, a prominent pro-democracy activist from the city is in Tokyo to raise awareness on events in her hometown and appeal for support from abroad.

"The three major battlefields are on the streets of Hong Kong, in the Legislative Council and the international community," Agnes Chow Ting, referring to Legco, Hong Kong's parliament, told the Nikkei Asian Review on Thursday. She has commissioned herself to take on the third battlefield, while acknowledging her movement's uphill battle against the Hong Kong government.
