The Wider Image: Young democrats shake up Hong Kong politics
Incoming district councillors Karrine Fu and Jason Chan invite locals to write Christmas cards to protesters in detention outside Fortress Hill station near North Point, Hong Kong, China, December 14, 2019. "I think I have a different definition of community service, about educating people about democracy. My competitor was automatically elected for 12 years, it was a big change, especially for the elders", said Fu, who won her Fort Street constituency in North Point by just 59 votes. Jason Chan, who won the neighbouring Fortress Hill constituency said: "We are safeguarding our autonomy. In 1997 we were guaranteed our autonomy to run our own place, special administered region. But this is always confused with the independence movement… This election is not a referendum for independence but a protest vote to work against the government."
