I'm Feliz Solomon, TIME Magazine's Senior Editor in Hong Kong. I've been covering the Hong Kong protests for the past 3 months and have written two cover stories about it. Ask me anything!
I’ve been a reporter and editor with TIME’s Hong Kong bureau for the past three years.
Since June, I’ve been covering the Hong Kong protests. Now in their third month, the tensions show no signs of abating and have evolved from demonstrations against a now-suspended extradition bill to a larger rebellion against China’s authoritarianism and a demand for more democracy.
I’ve spent time on the ground talking to protesters, dodging tear gas canisters, and interviewing experts and analysts to understand what’s really going on.
Apart from Hong Kong, I’ve reported extensively across South and Southeast Asia and written stories on the Wild Boars soccer team trapped in a cave in Thailand, the struggles exiled Rohingya face in Bangladesh, Thailand’s first transgender prime ministerial candidate, the devastating 2018 Sulawesi earthquake in Indonesia and press freedom in Myanmar.
I’ll be taking over TIME’s Reddit account from 7pm-8pm ET on Aug. 21 so you can ask me anything about the ongoing demonstrations in Hong Kong, what being tear-gassed feels like or reporting in Asia in general.
