What do young democratic activists do when they are caught in a vice so tight it is impossible to free oneself from. This is what is happening in a place that was the beacon of democracy in south-east Asia. The deal from British rule was to have continued democratic freedoms. Many believed this even though the writing was on the wall. This year with new legislation it no longer exists. Young activists have two choices to stay and face jail. Or flee and live as exiles away from their homes and families. Even then there is nothing to say that their activities abroad will not impact their families. In the former British province, those that stay fear the same threats jail or no freedom to express what is happening to them or their freedoms.
