China’s ceremonial parliament will soon act to pass “national security” legislation that will bypass the Hong Kong legislature impose major restrictions on protesters there.
“This is the end of Hong Kong,” said Hong Kong legislator Dennis Kwok.
“This is the end of one country, two systems. Make no mistake about it, that Beijing, the Central People’s Government, has completely breached its promise to the Hong Kong people,” added Kwok.
What exactly is China doing and why is it doing it now and what will happen to the thriving business and relative freedoms in Hong Kong if this happens? We ask China expert Gordon G. Chang.
In this podcast, we’ll also ask Chang what the U.S. can do in response and why so many political and media figures keep defending China despite its repression of freedom in Hong Kong and its obvious deception about the origins of the coronavirus.
