This Week's Program:

#HongKong Democracy
As Hong Kong prepares to mark the 18th anniversary of the territory’s return to Chinese sovereignty, protestors are once again planning to take to the streets in the name of democracy, echoing the cries of last fall’s Umbrella Revolution. Adding to the tensions, the Hong Kong government’s electoral proposals, which were designed to lay out a framework for the election of the city’s next leader in 2017, have collapsed. This week’s HashtagVOA looks at the vast political gulf between pro-democracy and pro-establishment camps in Hong Kong.
