Kings Of The East Solidifying Power - The End Of Hong Kong As We Know It? by Bestx(m): 12:34am On May 31, 2020
"The arms of tyranny have reached Hong Kong," declared pro-democracy lawmaker Ted Hui. The Chinese government has taken advantage of the quiet streets of Hong Kong -- just months ago filled with hundreds of thousands of protesters -- to push an extensive national security law for Hong Kong through parliament. Critics say this overreach by the Beijing marks the end of the freedom and autonomy that has enabled Hong Kong to thrive.

Hong Kong currently operates under a unique "one country, two systems" policy agreed upon before the British returned Hong Kong to China in 1997. The city has flourished thanks to its freedom and because it has evaded the tight grip of the Chinese Communist Party.
Pro-democracy activist do not want their city to look like the Chinese mainland, which suffers from countless human rights and religious freedom violations.
