IN SHORT

Martin Lee is no stranger to adversity. His long career as a barrister and a legislator has been characterized by a constant desire to establish democracy in Hong Kong so as to uphold the rule of law. Whether he was working on the Hong Kong Basic Law Drafting Committee or in the Legislative Council, his attitude has remained the same. “So long as I’m still fighting, I haven’t lost. The day I give up – I lose. Sometimes we fall, but it doesn’t matter so long as you can stand up again – I can’t think of any famous person who has not met failure in his or her lifetime.”
