Hong Kong wants answers

USA Today - HONG KONG — Politicians were asking for answers from the Obama administration on Thursday about allegations from an American computer analyst that a U.S. secret surveillance program hacked into Hong Kong computer systems.

Two political parties staged separate protests at the U.S. Consulate on Thursday, with the New Forum demonstrating against the alleged U.S. hacking in Hong Kong and China and the League of Social Democrats voicing support for Edward Snowden.

About a dozen people showed up for the protests; a larger one is planned for Saturday.

Civil Party leader Alan Leong Kah-kit said Edward Snowden has raised a serious allegation and that Hong Kong should take the issue up with President Obama.

Shameful and ironic that people fear extradition to the U.S., great bastion of freedom and justice, due to the risk of torture and political persecution.

Another great interview. Very informative
