Hong Kong activist Joshua Wong to run for local office

Hong Kong activist Joshua Wong announced plans Saturday to contest local elections and warned that any attempt to disqualify him will only spur more support for the pro-democracy protests. Wong’s announcement came ahead of a major rally later Saturday to mark the fifth anniversary of the Umbrella protests. Wong, 22, plans to run in district council elections in November.
