Have Hong Kong’s Democracy Protests Failed?

They were convicted on charges of public nuisance, and are set to be sentenced next week. It all began as a movement calling for less political interference from the authorities in mainland China. So, almost five years on, what - if anything - did those protests achieve? Abubakr al Shamahi reports. #UmbrellaMovement #HongKong #China
