Fight 'fake news' with facts, not Acts!

Yesterday, a group of activists peacefully gathered outside of Parliament to protest the Emergency (Essential Powers) (No 2) Ordinance 2021 or simply known as the Fake News Ordinance. We speak to one of the protestors about what went down yesterday, as well as why this new ordinance is problematic.
