Yuli: A domestic worker reports on Hong Kong’s historic protests
An Indonesian domestic worker becomes a fearless citizen journalist on the front lines of Hong Kong’s historic protests.
When mass protests break out against a controversial extradition bill in Hong Kong, an Indonesian domestic worker emerges as a powerful voice.
Amid the water cannon and tear gas, Yuli reports as a citizen journalist from the frontlines.
She writes stories and livestreams video to her digital platform “Migran Pos” in Bahasa-Indonesian, giving her fellow migrant workers and their families back home a rare insight into unfolding events.
Suddenly Yuli is arrested for a visa technicality, and her story attracts international media attention.
When Yuli is detained, she writes about her experiences and realises the power of her words.
