UC Davis student group harassed while supporting Hong Kong

Nov 18, 2019 by

The students of the UC campus group explain what they’ve dealt with.

The group, called “Davis4HK”, advocates for genuine universal suffrage in Hong Kong. It consists of around 40 students, and about half of them are from Hong Kong. Similar events have occurred at other UC campuses, including Berkeley to UCLA.

At UC Davis on Oct. 30, a student’s phone was snatched and dropped to the ground after a confrontation amid a series of harassment at on-campus events ran by Davis4HK in solidarity for the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong.

The pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong have been going for five months. The protesters’ call for an independent committee to investigate police brutality and misconduct remained unheard, among other demands. The citizens’ trust in the government and the police has reached an all-point low, local reports show.
