Prominent Hong Kong pro-democracy activist Agnes Chow — who was jailed for months in a 2020 crackdown on the movement following massive protests the previous year — revealed Sunday that she has decided to stay in Canada, where she is studying, likely never to return home to meet her bail conditions.

Known in Japan as the “Goddess of Democracy,” Chow — the co-founder of the now-disbanded Demosisto party — updated her Instagram account for the first time in nearly two years to mark her 27th birthday, writing that she is currently in Toronto and had left Hong Kong in September to study at a university in Canada.
