    The U.S. Army needs recruits, and they're looking to Twitch to find them. With the Army’s new e-sports team, they hope to attract young, tech-savvy enlistees by streaming video games online.

    ‘I Was Prepared to be Arrested’: Jan. 6, 2021 - Hong Kong

    ‘I Was Prepared to be Arrested’: Jan. 6, 2021 - Hong Kong

    In a pre-dawn raid on January 6th, hundreds of Hong Kong police fanned out across the city in a coordinated operation to arrest dozens of pro-democracy activists and lawmakers in a single sweep. It was the biggest crackdown on the city’s democracy movement and the latest Chinese government effort to curb dissent. 
    We go to Hong Kong to spend time with one of the people rounded up -- a 23-year old local politician -- and hear from VICE correspondent Laurel Chor about what led up to that day. Is this the end of Hong Kong’s nascent democracy? 
    Reporting from Viola Zhou in Hong Kong. Produced by Jesse Alejandro Cottrell.
