Gwyneth Ho Kwai-lam is a Hong Kong political activist and former reporter of the now-defunct news outlet Stand News, who rose to prominence for her frontline reporting in the 2019–2020 Hong Kong protests, during which she was attacked by triad gangsters who indiscriminately assaulted civilians at the Yuen Long metro station. In June 2020, she announced her candidature in the unofficial pro-democracy primaries. 

She was arrested on Jan. 6, 2021, along with over 50 other pro-democrats on suspicion of conspiracy to commit subversion over her participation in the primaries and has been in custody since Feb. 28, 2021. In December 2021, she received a sentence of six months in relation to her role in a banned protest during the 31st anniversary of the 1989 Tiananmen Square protests in June 2020. Ho is among the 17 people who pled not guilty over their national security charges for organizing and participating in the pro-democracy primaries. [1]
