    An urgent manifesto for global democracy from Joshua Wong, the 22-year-old phenomenon leading Hong Kong's protests - Nobel Peace Prize nominee and TIME, Forbes and Fortune world leader.

    At what point do you stand up to power?

    Aged 14, Joshua Wong made history. While the adults stayed silent, and China threatened to change their education policy, Joshua staged the first ever student protest in Hong Kong against the oppressive regime- and won.

    Since then, Joshua has led the Umbrella Revolution in 2014 and now the ongoing Extradition Bill protests which are hitting our news headlines daily. His efforts have garnered him mass global news coverage, a Nobel Peace Prize nomination and over 100 days in jail.

    Now, for the first time, this is Joshua's story straight from the frontline of activism. Part-manifesto, part-memoir, Unfree Speech is Joshua's powerful and urgent call for all of us to stand up for democracy, wherever we live. It is a rallying cry for all of us to rise up and fight together for our freedoms.

    Hong Kong is the canary in the coal mine.
    When we stay silent, no-one is safe- when we free our speech, 'they can't stop all of us'.
