Vale Hong Kong as CCP overlords take control

China’s National People’s Congress has approved a draft resolution that paves the way for anti-sedition laws to be enacted in Hong Kong. The laws will end Hong Kong’s autonomy by banning “acts and activities” considered to be a threat to China’s national security, and will permit “national security agencies” to operate in Hong Kong.

The new laws are being enacted through a provision that bypasses Hong Kong’s legislature. It was rubber stamped with grand applause with a vote of 2,878 votes in favour with only one against.

Meanwhile, Australia’s Foreign Affairs Minister Marise Payne joined her counterparts to sign a statement which argued the legislation would erode Hong Kong’s autonomy and undermine the One Country, Two Systems framework.

The four nations called on China to work with Hong Kong to ensure Beijing could meet its international obligations under the 1984 Sino-British agreement on the autonomy of the former colony.

Alas, Hong Kong as we know it will soon be history, conquered by the evil autocratic CCP.

  1. Permitting CCP “national security agencies “ to operate in HK is the end of the two systems doctrine.

    • Australia has been permitting CCP security agencies to intimidate some anti-CCP dissidents in Australia for the last 4 years.

      • In 2008 they sent 10,000 CCP patriots down the Federal Highway to intimidate pro-democracy and ‘Free Tibet’ protestors as the Olympic torch passed through Canberra on its way to Beijing.

        The doubling down on Chinese immigration, hostile takeover of our universities, Port of Darwin ‘lease’ and Chinese surveillance cameras, selling 60% of Jemena to State Grid, bringing them in to fuel the property boom, etc, all happened after that.

      That’s not how it works : one guy is usually assigned the protest vote so it looks there is some ‘democracy’. That’s how Saddam did his election, how North Korea did elections, and the same thing happened when Xi was voted to become Emperor for life.

  2. Don’t forget there is an Australian sitting in a London jail awaiting extradition to the US on similar charges to the ones the Hong Kongers were protesting about.

    I’m not a CCP apologist, but we need to remember that the West has lost any moral high-ground it once had.

    who is that person?
    reminds me of August Landmesser

  4. Watched BBC tonight. Comic. Talking about how China has stamped out Covid and praising Winnie-the-Pooh and in the background everyone in the Great Hall had masks on. Yep they’ve certainly defeated the virus…

    Disgusting how Western media have been so obsequious towards them on this. They lie and the Western media and corporations all say the lie is the truth. I’m not sure what’s worse, then or their fellow-travellers among us.
