Unfree speech : the threat to global democracy and why we must act, now

Books
With global democracy under threat, we must act together to defend our rights- now. Aged 14, Joshua Wong made history. While the adults stayed silent, Joshua staged the first ever student protest in Hong Kong to oppose National Education - and won. Since then, Joshua led the Umbrella Revolution and has spearheaded the ongoing Extradition Bill protests which have seen 1.7 million people take the streets and are hitting our news headlines daily. His efforts have garnered him mass global news coverage, a Nobel Peace Prize nomination and over 100 days in jail. This is Joshua's story told for the first time, straight from the frontline of activism. Collecting his prison letters and personal reflections, Unfree Speech is Joshua's rallying cry for all of us to rise up and fight for our freedoms. Hong Kong is the canary in the coal mine. When we stay silent, no-one is safe- when we free our speech, they can't stop all of us.
