Professor Michael C. Davis was featured in The Big Story- Tiananmen to Hong Kong: The Fight for Democracy, a short documentary by Real Vision, for a segment in the series, “China: Danger & Opportunity.” Davis discusses the parallels of the pro-democracy student protests at Tiananmen Square in 1989 and the current student-led protests in Hong Kong. He addresses the question of whether history will repeat itself, stating that “there’s two nuclear options . . . one is for Beijing to send in the PLA. The other is for Hong Kong to use the Emergency Regulations Ordinance and issue these draconian regulations to stop public assemblies and everything.”
