Senator Josh Hawley of Missouri is visiting Hong Kong during the recent civil unrest there to throw his support behind the protestors. The senator has likened Hong Kong to Berlin and says that it is this generation’s defining moment.

On Sunday, he met with Joshua Wong, a protestor in Hong Kong.

The senator also recorded protests in the city, sharing them on twitter.

Senator Hawley told the Hong Kong protestors in a statement of solidarity that “Free people everywhere are looking to you and your fight and your struggle and your battle for your basic liberties,” adding that “the free peoples of the world stand with you.”
