6:06 pm
a little push back to ballad seen by many residents as the final nail in the coffin of the territories autonomy from china under the one country to systems. principal . hong kong lodges opposition party chose to boycott the election and a few pro democracy activists tried to make their voices heard at pony stations. but even before the votes are counted, there is little doubt over the outcome. so let's go now at u. s. sunny chung, a pro democracy activist who has left hong kong to seek asylum in the united states and he joins me now from washington. d. c. a very warm welcome to the show you've taken to social media to urge voters to stay home. why is turn out so important in this election? because this is a 1st election after imposition or the national security law and also to pull the code on. so it's really important for young people to demonstrate to the will that
6:07 pm
a, a will not yield. this is very key or signal to beijing that hong kong people do not stop this kind of election. this is not an election. this is a selection. and what else are you and other activists able to do it to support the boy caught from your position abroad nowadays, and governments already bands or the activities on hong kong on the ground. that's why people use hong kong. they can no longer talk anything bad about the russian, otherwise they will be prosecuted for inciting people to party lasha. so people like me when we now get excel, we try to tell you the national world about how thick lashing is. and we also encourage hong kong people to bar called this lesson. so we speak for the people who are now in person. and we want to disseminate the message that message that
