Hong Kong activist pleads with Jacinda Ardern for NZ lifeline

From Morning Report, 8:26 am on 27 October 2020

A Hong Kong pro-democracy activist is appealing to Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern for a lifeline for young Hong Kongers at risk from a new security law in the city.

Nathan Law, one of the leading Hong Kong pro-democracy activists, fled and is now living in Britain.

His name was recently published on an international wanted list by the Hong Kong Government.

Law is hoping New Zealand will consider a lifeline scheme, such as allowing Hongkongers studying in New Zealand the opportunity to work after they graduate.

He speaks to Susie Ferguson.
