back 5 years and you will remember these pictures students and pro-democracy activists getting umbrellas protesting in hong kong's business district in late 2014 demanding free and fair elections but what did lead to 3 leaders of the umbrella movement were sent to jail in 2017 and in april this year 7 others were handed prison terms for their role in the movement also in 2017 for pro-democracy legislators what disqualified from parliament for refusing to declare loyalty to china when they took their oath of office and last year despite opposition to hong kong legislature approved a measure that meant chinese law trump hong kong law in parts of the new west lawn train station there are many more such instances but we did turn to the current protests and our correspondent phoebe kong reporting from where they are being held . like the umbrella movement 5 years ago most of the people present here today are

young people saying to me as the hometown residents as they have gone through frustrations in the serious off the field is social movements in the past few years but what is the biggest difference is that these time people up here to help overcome the this this is a part in the possibility is that even though to understand this has to succeed it's extremely small this time this do it this time and to stand up and fight for what they believe in even the if it doesn't come true ultimately. not only not in the studio has been bought she's seen a china that's part of the bettles mandans to do it. in a beilin mr boche welcome to the studio thank you for coming in at the outset can i just ask you is this protest doomed to fail. i'm afraid it's not going to get to a good result what is failure here i don't think the protesters in hong kong are out to actually stop the no it's not about the little it's about them voicing their

discontent and this discontent is really against the communist party of china they are saying you don't represent us and we don't q one q to meddle in hong kong's affairs as much as you have done over the last couple of years but that is not something that they're going to be very successful in but they make their point strongly but even if they're make this point and they've made this point repeatedly in the past 5 years beijing hasn't budged an inch where does this end. that is the crucial question and i don't think it's going to end well for the people in hong kong you've seen the pictures where they photograph people they've gone after the last generation of protesters really hardly and i'm afraid they're going to do that again because the one thing that the beijing government does not accept is a challenge to its authority because hong kong has also been

a model for the rest of china always and what beijing really does not want to happen is. for people in china especially young people in china to get an idea that you can protest against the communist party that you can challenge the system and get away with it so what you're saying is that beijing needs to make an example of hong kong every time one can protest against beijing's rule and that example we've been made every time no matter what does i'm afraid that is the path they're on they don't want an escalation because that is not going to do them any service and they are very much censoring the events in hong kong on the mainland so the awareness in china is not that high at the moment they don't want escalation at the moment but they want to stop this and what is really i believe freaking them out is this guy is off this protest it's one in 7 people in hong kong that's equivalent to
6:36 pm
12000000 people in germany or almost $50000000.00 people in the u.s. it's an unprecedented protest but when it comes to a whole talking about hong kong we speak about the one country 2 systems principle this is the principle that china itself came up with does china actually follow this principle as a just that. they do follow it hong kong does have its autonomy and it's going to have to autonomy for a while but beijing is not really feel feeling bound to this law anymore which was set up in the eighty's and the totally different conditions and they definitely don't want hong kong to make trouble and this kind of protest is exactly what is beijing's definition of making trouble. from the institute thank you very much for coming into the studio and explaining this to us. last year made history by winning a gold medal in the digits of world championships making the filipino fighter
