(The Diplomat, By Florence Mok) Although the recent protest in Hong Kong was sparked by the inability of the Hong Kong government to hand over a Hong Kong national, who was alleged to have murdered her girlfriend, to Taiwan, the roots for the protest go deeper. The recent protests in Hong Kong resulted from a growing distrust between the Hong Kong people and the governments in Hong Kong and Beijing, with tensions between the public and the governments going back to the 1980s. <Accessed 2019-06-22>
