Taiwan, which China regards as a renegade province that has to return to China one day, is following the events in Hong Kong with great interest. Taiwan has full democracy unlike Hong Kong’s more limited freedoms, and people here are very wary of what might happen to those freedoms under Chinese rule.
Demonstrators sat down in front of Hong Kong’s trade office and made their feelings known to the Taipei representative.
“I very much understand the student’s demands and I will inform the Hong Kong government,” said Hong Kong’s representative in Taiwan John Leung.
