Young democrats shake up Hong Kong politics
The election of pro-democracy candidates to Hong Kong's district councils this November was part of a democratic domino effect across the Chinese-ruled city, suggesting strong support for the ongoing protests that have roiled the city for more than six months.

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."

"I think there is also specific challenges in each district. For me it is really hard to really get along with the Fujian community because they have a very different historical and cultural background and I take a really long time to build a network and rapport in that community.

Born and raised in North Point, the Tsang brothers opened their store selling handmade suits in the state theatre building in 1993. "Back in the day, North Point was full of gambling dens and dance halls and at the theatre upstairs, a ticket for the movie cost 50 cents," the older Tsang said. "We barely make enough to cover the rent, even though the rent is cheap, business is slow." he said. "Over time there were more and more people from the mainland and also foreigners.
