Democracy and freedom are worth fighting for and should be celebrated

On the 25 November, at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, Claire congratulated the momentous victory of the pro-democracy faction in the recent Hong Kong elections, particularly after they endured violence at the hands of the Chinese government when they took to the streets in defence of their liberty. She applauds them as an inspiration to all democrats whilst noting the EU will not make the mistake of telling the Hong Kong freedom fighters they voted incorrectly, as they did with the British electorate.
