Not surprisingly Wong is frustrated by the video.
"... I've been smeared for a long time in the past," he said. "But it's very rare to see information released by communist officials on the mainland."
Wong posted his response on Facebook as well as news of pro-rights activist Zhai Yanmin convicted of subverting state power in Tianjin and given a suspended jail sentence.

He said he did not advocate for Hong Kong independence during the 2014 hunger strike, and that he viewed the "false statements" from the "state apparatus" as jokes.
The video also lumped in members of Taiwan's Sunflower Movement, who occupied the island's legislature in 2014 to protest a trade agreement with mainland China, saying they backed independence for Taiwan, and that they were also backed by the US.
In response, Lin Fei-fan, one of the leaders of the movement, said any revolution in Taiwan would not be Beijing's business because Taiwan was not a part of China.
