Hong Kong fights back against CCP overlord

Hong Kong citizens continue to fight back against the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) national security laws that will ban subversion, secession, foreign interference and any acts that threaten national security.

Hong Kong residents have once again taken to the streets in large numbers to rally for independence, calling the national security law “a direct assault on their civil liberties”.

Meanwhile, China’s foreign ministry office in Hong Kong and the city’s security chief has labelled the protestors “terrorists”:

At a briefing for diplomats, foreign business chambers and correspondents, China’s Foreign Commissioner in Hong Kong, Xie Feng, said the laws would only target a minority of “troublemakers” who had posed “imminent danger” to China’s national security.

“The legislation will alleviate the grave concerns among local and foreign business communities about the violent and terrorist forces,” Mr Xie said…

Secretary for Security John Lee said “terrorism is growing” and harmful activities such as calling for Hong Kong’s independence were becoming more rampant.

Meanwhile, around 200 parliamentarians and policy experts from 23 countries (including Australia) have signed a letter attacking the Hong Kong National Security Law. In particular, Taiwan is promising ‘support’ for Hong Kong, whereas the United States has threatened to impose sanctions on China:

The CCP is clearly trying to use the Wuhan Coronavirus to push through these laws while the world is distracted.

Australia needs to get far away from this autocratic regime as soon as possible.

    Agreed we need to distance ourselves from these dictators as much as possible. We must not sell our soul to the devil that is CCP.It is an evil organisation that appears to care little for its own citizens let alone ours

      Rubbish! They did a brilliant Lock. Us. Down which is advocated by the chicken sh1ts on here “for our own good”. So they care a lot.

  2. Hong Kong is lost. The US should declassify it as being separate of the mainland and make the CCP eat their arrogance.

    Kyle Bass from Hayman Capital has been banging in about this for over a year. Reckons the HHKD:USD peg will be broken soon and badly.

      The US should send an aircraft carrier group to HK and call China’s bluff.

      All this talk about HKD:USD peg going is merely hedgefunds trying to make money off people’s misery.

        Not much can be done about Hong Kong. Taiwan More can be done but only to a point. China’s entire army/navy was designed around capturing Taiwan so it’s got some teeth in that direction. Beyond that they don’t have much.

        “Making money off other people’ misery” is a non sequitur if ever I saw one.

        Hedge funds are not causing the misery to happen they are merely talking bets a certain event will happen — there’s a difference.

        Just like the dingbats who think that speculators ‘shorting the market’ cause perfectly good stocks to collapse. Wheeeee ….

      Agree, HK is heading for further decline. Shame though, was a nice holiday destination about a decade ago.

      • I know right? Honkers used to be awesome. I went back about 2 years ago and I thought it had become so much more like the mainland. Have lost interest since.

      But it was never separate from the mainland so what would be the point of that ?.

      Hong Kong had a good run, but anyone who doesn’t want to live in China should get out now.

      • HK is China’s gateway to western capitalism. It is accorded a bunch of international financial markets access rights not available to the mainland. If the two systems merge then this special status is revoked. HK then becomes another Chinese city.

        Due to the substantial loss of access to international financial markets HK ceases to be relevant to the West.

        China on the other hand looses a material part of it its access to USD (via HK).

          All of which the CCP understands and no doubt has a plan for…..

        • DominicMEMBER

          Correct. Always a bargaining chip I thought but the CCP look willing to discard it, which is an odd move.
