Martin Lee is a top barrister, longtime democracy advocate, and the founding Chairman of the Democratic Party of Hong Kong. He served in the Legislative Council from 1985-2008. Along with Chan, he has been among the highest profile defenders of Hong Kong's freedoms, rule of law, and way of life. He has argued that without a democratic system to underpin the rule of law, Hong Kong will not continue as a free society and as a model for China's future development. In a recent New York Times op-ed titled "Hong Kong's Shaky Democratic Future," he warned that "our autonomy and the rule of law it buttresses are under threat from the mainland central government," and called on Beijing to end the dangerous escalation of press censorship in Hong Kong.
