Angela Chung protesting in Hong Kong

 AN ENNISKILLEN woman is at the centre of protests currently sweeping Hong Kong against Bejing’s political reforms.

Pro-democracy supporters have swept into central Hong Kong in their thousands to protest against the reforms for 2017 that will not guarantee them the right to freely elect their leaders.


Angela Chung, from Enniskillen and now living in China, is at the centre of the protests in Hong Kong.

China has warned foreign countries against getting involved and has censored coverage in its mainland.

Speaking exclusively to the Herald she tells us: “We have been here for two days. People in Hong Kong are friendly, helpful and there is an endless supply of food, water and snacks to keep everyone going.

“Currently it is 1.44am and we are near government offices and people are walking around with signs stating no to violence and the crowds are still going strong.”

Speaking about the large number of people gathered in the area Angela continued: “We have close to 200,000 people condensed into small area in the city. The support is awesome.”

Angela is keen to let people know what is happening and pleads: “Please spread the word to the people in Enniskillen. We appreciate as much support as we can get from all over the world.”
