Hear from journalists who covered Occupy Hong Kong in a Google Hangout on Sunday at 7a Pacific / 10a Eastern / 10p HK
Umbrellas defending from tear gas. Songs of freedom echoing in rainstorms. Tent cities springing up.  Smartphone lights dancing in the air. These are the sights and sounds of Hong Kong's pro-democracy protests that have gripped this city for more than half a month. Media coverage has come fast and furious but how fair and how well have the protests been covered? What questions still must be asked?

Join AAJA Asia for an online discussion on Google Hangout with local, on-the-ground journalists covering Hong Kong's unprecedented pro-democracy protests:

- Erik MAK Ka Wai, Producer, Presenter, Public and Current Affairs Section, Radio Television Hong Kong
- Leon Lee, Web Editor, Young Post, South China Morning Post
- Shirley Yam, Vice-chairperson, Hong Kong Journalists Association

- Zela Chin, Senior Producer/Reporter, News & Information Services, Television Broadcasts
