Hong Kong Free Press

TEDx Wan Chai 2018: Powering a media outlet through the kindness of a city – Tom Grundy, 2.6.18

Hong Kong Free Press  was launched in 2015 amid rising concerns over declining press freedom in Hong Kong. In this talk at TEDx Wan Chai 2018, it’s co-founder shares the journey that led to the launch of this crowdfunded media outlet. With attacks on journalists, advertisers withdrawing from media critical of the establishment, along with the existential pressures facing the wider industry, Tom Grundy discusses why it is ever more vital that Hong Kong has an independent platform for critical voices to be heard.
