In today’s edition of “Politics Home” Baroness (Natalie) Bennett and I explain why Grandma Wong would be a worthy recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize

Grandma Wong represents the very best of the Hong Kong protesters in bravely and stubbornly refusing to give in to tyranny. In nominating her for the Nobel Peace Prize, we send a clear signal to China.

She is an inspiration to all of us here in the UK who believe in democracy, and she is an inspiration to the thousands of Hongkongers who continue to fight for their freedom

Grandma Wong urges the world to support the Hong Kong 12 – denied access to their lawyers and families.
