Students Protesting In Hong Kong

Many young people are protesting in Hong Kong.
Hong Kong is part of China. However, for 155 years it was owned by Britain; it was returned to China in 1997. While it was under British rule, Hong Kong became quite different from what is known as “mainland” China. Hong Kong operates, in many ways, more like Europe or North America.
