What began as a series of peaceful protests against a proposed law to allow the Hong Kong government to extradite residents to mainland China has become a de facto war about the future of democracy. After nearly six months of resistance, who are the Hong Kongers keeping this seemingly impossible fight alive? Producer Parjanya Christian Holtz follows a teacher, a student and a tech worker who have sacrificed thousands of hours — and dollars — for the movement.

"gayau" is probably not his real name. it's a saying in cantonese meaning "keep fighting" or "push harder".

Typical BS you would see in a western media's reporting about HK. Do you know they just "peacefully" destroyed a bunch of shops and set an old man on fire? And this is after tons of other disgusting and inhuman things they have done. Watching US reporting on HK makes my stomach sick...
