Technically, Hong Kong was defeated/ conquered last year by seven months of huge pro-democracy protests.
It was fueled by years of rising fear that Beijing is taking away the liberty of the city.
Hundreds of thousands of protestors took to the streets to bring out rallies.
As expected, it met with the police and a seeming terror war started between the two.
Small groups of these protesters even wielded petrol bombs and there was a huge wreck.
Beijing portrays the protests as a foreign-backed plot, unlike the Protesters who claim that this is the only way to preserve the city’s freedom.
Again thousands of people protested on Sunday after the Security law made its announcement.
They were nonetheless, dispersed by tear gas and water cannon. This was, however, the worst class ever to be witnessed.
To this, President Trump on Tuesday warned the Chinese people that Hong Kong could lose its status as a global financial centre.
This was the case if a Chinese crackdown goes ahead and acclaim a pretty interesting US response within days.
The Chinese legislation would then ban anything such as terrorism, foreign interference and subversion, which would threaten their peace.
Hong Kong’s chief executive, Carrie Lam, said on Tuesday that mandatory freedoms would remain no matter what.
Trump is nonetheless displeased with the Chinese efforts because its hard to see how Hong Kong can remain a financial hub if China takes over.
Trump was asked would he put restrictions on visas for Chinese students, and he said he might do something very interesting about it.
What’s To Come
Chinese law argued substantially that the controversial law would target only a few lawbreakers.
The commander of China’s military garrison in Hong Kong warned that the law would punish any acts of separatism.
But the city’s freedom fears are pretty baseless, as has been reported.
Because Hong Kong’s freedom will be preserved anyhow and its vibrancy in terms of the rule of law and independence of the judiciary will be enjoyed by people.
The controversial law only targets a handful of lawbreakers and protects the vast majority of the law-abiding citizens who are peace-loving citizens.
