EU condemns HK activist Joshua Wong’s arrest

Prominent Hong Kong activist Joshua Wong was arrested yesterday for taking part in a protest at the height of the city's pro-democracy unrest last year, but he vowed to continue resisting China's crackdown on dissent. Wong was arrested for "unlawful assembly" over a 2019 demonstration against a government ban on face masks that was imposed before the coronavirus pandemic, his lawyer said. Later yesterday, the European Union criticised the move, saying it was "the latest in a troubling series of arrests of pro-democracy activists since the summer".
