The Guardian: Hong Kong democracy activists urge UK to release unseen files

The Guardian: Hong Kong democracy activists urge UK to release unseen files. “The documents were transferred to the UK when Hong Kong returned to China in 1997 and include material on the region’s future after handover. Activists believe they could cast fresh light on current disputes and also fear that records on events that Beijing deems sensitive – such as deadly riots in 1967 – could otherwise be lost forever.”
