Meet Agnes Chow, Hong Kong’s “Goddess of Democracy”

Clip: Season 2020 Episode 5 | 2m 42s

Agnes Chow has been described as Hong Kong’s “goddess of democracy.” A leading voice in both the 2014 “Umbrella Movement” and the even larger wave of pro-democracy protests that gripped Hong Kong last year, she is one of five young protesters FRONTLINE follows in the documentary, "Battle for Hong Kong." “We want,” she tells FRONTLINE in this excerpt, “to choose our future by ourselves.”
