Dispatches from Hong Kong feat. Brian Hioe

We've been monitoring the situation in Hong Kong from our extremely high-tech Amstrad eMailer, but given how fast things are developing, we decided to add some additional (serious) content this week. So, please enjoy this interview between Nate (@inthesedeserts) and Brian Hioe (@brianhioe), the editor of New Bloom Magazine.

Brian is currently reporting from Hong Kong and gave insight into the reasons behind the protest, the results of the attempted general strike, and what to expect in the coming days. If you want to read more from Brian, check out New Bloom (https://newbloommag.net/) as well as on twitter at @newbloommag.
