ABOUT THE SHOW
Every week, The Van Maren Show will try to get a handle on what is really going on in our culture today. It can be difficult to find news sources and storytellers that accurately reflect a Christian, socially conservative, pro-life, pro-family worldview. Join me on Wednesdays as we head to the front lines of the culture war.

In today’s special report, Jonathon Van Maren speaks with Alessandra Bocchi, a journalist who just returned from Hong Kong, about the protests happening there. The extradition bill was rescinded today, but Bocchi doesn’t necessarily think this will completely quell the protestors.
The Hong Kong protests started months ago as a peaceful demonstration against an extradition bill passed by the Hong Kong government. The people of Hong Kong are concerned the authoritarian government will use this extradition policy to bring individuals accused of political crimes back to mainland China. Amazingly, according to Bocchi, the protests aren’t organized by a single person, but were more of a spontaneous combustion. Extraordinarily, everyone has been, and continue to be, on the same page as the protests and demands develop.
