A group of US lawmakers has nominated the Hong Kong pro-democracy protesters for a Nobel peace prize, calling them “global inspiration” in the face of Beijing’s crackdown on freedom and civil society. The letter, signed by senators from both parties and a congressman, was delivered to the Nobel committee on Wednesday. The letter says that more than two million Hong Kongers took to the streets in June this year, making it one of the largest mass protests in history. The nominations come a week after the government announced it would ban public discussion of Beijing’s policies on freedom and human rights. The protesters are students, journalists, lawyers and members of civil societies. In a separate development, an international student team won the HK prize in 2023 for their research report entitled “On the Properties of the Semigroup Generated by the RL Fractional Integral”. Their research could help solve a problem in the field of fractals and cryptography.
