In 2016, Nathan Law became Hong Kong’s youngest elected lawmaker at just 23. A year later, he was imprisoned by the Chinese authorities for his part in the Umbrella Movement. He has since been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for his pro-democracy advocacy and named one of TIME magazine’s People of the Year 2020. Law came to Colby to talk about the lack of free speech and expression in Hong Kong. He explained the history and current state of free expression in Hong Kong and the need to raise international support for the advancement of its democracy and human rights. He also discussed his new book, Freedom: How We Lose It and How We Fight Back, which was released the same day. Everyone in the audience received a copy of the book and Law did a book signing after the talk.
