THE HONG KONGER is a multi-award-winning documentary by the Acton Institute. When Hong Kong’s basic freedoms come under attack, newspaper publisher and pro-democracy activist Jimmy Lai (a devout Catholic) finds himself in the crosshairs of the state and must choose between defending Hong Kong’s long-standing liberties, or his own freedom.
Jimmy’s story is one that cannot die in a prison cell—it is one that must reignite a persistent movement to defend the cause of freedom for Hong Kongers, for China as a whole, and humanity everywhere. You can make a difference. Learn about the three ways you can get involved with the film.
Lai Chee-Ying, also known as “Jimmy Lai,” is a successful Hong Kong entrepreneur, media mogul and democratic activist who escaped—young and penniless—to Hong Kong from mainland China. Lai eventually founded Apple Daily, one of the most well-read newspapers in Hong Kong.
Lai was sentenced in April 2022 to 14 months in prison for his role in pro-democracy protests.
Now, CCP leadership are doing everything in their power to eradicate Lai’s name and memory as they continue to snuff out threats to the CCP’s absolute power.
