Umbrella movement in Hong Kong Name: Institution of affiliation: In 1997 the British handed over Hong Kong which was its colony to China. However Hong Kong was allowed to maintain its political system and a capitalist economy. The identity crisis and the political turmoil facing Hong Kong is as a result of the decision of Beijing regarding elections. The reforms proposed that China would vet the nominees for the elective posts. It is due to the election reforms being proposed by Beijing that the umbrella movement was formed to protest against such reforms. Student activists were the first group to protest against the reforms. The country is controlled by Beijing using a different political system from that being used in China. Hong Kong has slowly turned out to be an autonomous economy. The capitalist economy has also impacted heavily on the middle class and the poor who are still Kong. Beijing wants to vet the political contestants before vying for any political post. Recently two lawmakers had been disqualified for deviating from the words written in the oath of office. The umbrella movement has gained international support and this has fostered the actions of the movement to continue. References In Lam W. & In Cooper L. (2016).
