Hong Kong ‘Umbrella’ movement leader freed from prison, says ‘no regret’

(source: reuters | 14 mar 2020) “Life in prison was difficult, but I have no regret at all… as this is a necessary price to pay for fighting for democracy,” Chan said, chanting “I want universal suffrage” with dozens of supporters.

“I think after the last few months, Hong Kong people understand more why we had to use civil disobedience to fight for freedom.”

A retired sociologist and one of the three leaders of the pro-democracy movement, Chan Kin-man was found guilty last year of conspiracy to commit public nuisance for his role in planning and mobilising supporters during the 79-day protest that brought parts of the Chinese-ruled city to a standstill.

The symbolic umbrella tactic re-emerged in 2019 during the sometimes violent anti-government protests triggered by a now withdrawn extradition bill that would have allowed criminal suspects to be sent to the mainland for trial in Communist Party controlled courts.

Chan said he understood why the young protesters resorted to “intense actions” in the last few months because they felt the government was no long fair and just.
