Abstract

In recent years, Hong Kong has become a city of protests, with identity politics playing an important role. Especially in the 2014 Umbrella Movement and the 2019 Anti-Extradition Protests, protesters claimed they were fighters defending the core values of “the Hongkongers”— democracy and freedom—while refused to identify themselves as Chinese. With abundant conflict stories of protesters and government supporters, the Hong Kong media have created an illusion that the public is enormously polarized and national identity increasingly becomes a binary decision.
