Don Hellmann comments on Hong Kong protests // KOMO News

December 2, 2019

Don Hellmann, Jackson School Professor Emeritus and an expert on East Asia, was interviewed by KOMO News on recent clashes between protestors and police in Hong Kong. Hellmann has traveled to China twice this year.

“People who protest in any country do so because they’re frustrated,” Hellman said. “I think everybody except the people rioting are surprised that this has persisted this long, and above all, has turned out to be as violent as it has.”
