Elsie Tu, a long-time politician who spent her whole life fighting for the underprivileged in Hong Kong, has died this morning at the age of 102.

Tu, a former Urban Councillor and lawmaker regarded as a pro-Beijing figure, was well-known for her outspoken manner. The centenarian still actively wrote articles for newspapers to criticise government policies she thought were unfair or not good enough.
