The Chinese government is praising Auckland University students who’ve stood up to Hong Kong pro-democracy protesters involved in a scuffle this week. 

Mainland Chinese students clashed with students demonstrating against an extradition Bill in Hong Kong and Beijing's influence in the city.

The extradition Bill has been extremely controversial in the "one country, two systems" nation as it would allow those in the city to be extradited to mainland China for trial. 

A verbal dispute turned physical and a Hong Kong supporter ended up on the ground.

The Woman fears for her life and wouldn’t talk to this programme, but an administrator on the New Zealand Hong Kongers Facebook page has spoken with her.

She speaks to Ryan Bridge on MAgic Talk Drive, using a flase name to protect her identity Sarah explains why she needs to remain anonymous.
