Things are heating up in Hong Kong.
The New York Times reports that activists are calling for a general strike and rallies on Monday, August 5, 2019.
Such unrest has led to massive disruptions on subway and rail lines. Additionally, more than 200 flights from the city’s airport have been cancelled.
These demonstrations are part of a larger wave of protests against an unpopular extradition bill that was introduced in recent months.
