THE PRC WILL NOT LIKE THIS: Hongkongers nominated for Nobel Peace Prize.

“I have nominated the people of Hong Kong, who risk their lives and security every day to stand up for freedom of speech and basic democracy, to the Nobel Peace Prize for 2020 I hope this will be further encouragement to the movement,” Guri Melby, a politician for Norway’s Liberal Party, said on Twitter.

“The importance of what they are doing extends far beyond Hong Kong, both in the region and in the rest of the world,” she told newspaper Aftenposten.

City-wide protests against a soon-to-be-scrapped extradition bill have entered their 19th week, as wider anger over police misconduct and demands for democracy engulf the movement.
