What are the Hong Kong students protesting about?

Lots of details on the news about how the police are using tear gas and basically surrounding them - but not one mention on what the reason is.

Is this something they don't want discussed?

    i wonder which they you are talking about, seems to me the media dictates and the interviewers are bombastic and bully to get answers that suit their own opinions and continue the topic.

    hong kong students want democracy, and freedom from chinese interference as the hong kong-uk basic law agreement promised during the course of the fifty years it should rule the territory.

    There has been an accelerated push from China to seize Hong Kong early instead of waiting until 2040 to claim Hong Kong as part of China's territory.  The people of Hong Kong wish to remain independent.

    They are protesting about a number of things. First it was the extradition bill, that Peking wanted to make into law, in violation of the Chinese agreed Basic Law. It would mean that Peking needn't have to illegally snatch undesirables off the street and secretly ship them to China, as they had been doing and after months of protesting, the bill was finally dropped. The students then wanted the Chief Secretary, Carrie Lam to resign and free elections to choose her successor be held, THAT, plus the fact that their guaranteed civil liberties are being eroded at an alarming rate. is the reason for the current protests

    the chinese govt classically has let them have alot of autonomy but recently has changed a few rules mainly regarding extraditing i think it was .. alot of hong kongers dont consider themselves under chinese rule it appears .. they'll find out the hard way if they dont tone it down .. when the money flow is negatively affected to china then its no longer beneficial to 'take it easy' on them ...

    PLENTY of info available, if you bother to look properly.

    The 2019 Hong Kong protests, also known as the Anti-Extradition Law Amendment Bill (or Anti-ELAB) movement, are an ongoing series of demonstrations in Hong Kong which were triggered by the introduction of the Fugitive Offenders amendment bill by the Hong Kong government.
