Taiwan exhibition showcases 2019 Hong Kong pro-democracy protests

An exhibition marking the first anniversary of the Hong Kong pro-democracy protests is held at Taiwan Comic Base in Taipei. It features more than 100 artworks ranging from hand drawings, posters and multi-media projects from artists in Hong Kong, Taiwan, South Korea and Australia. The recent imposition of a sweeping new national security law on Hong Kong has sent chills through Taiwan, deepening fears that Beijing focus next on seizing the democratic self-ruled island.
