Has China Gone Rogue?

Hong Kong is in danger. China’s promise of democracy was a lie..



The ninth of June 2019 was a Sunday. Any other Sunday in summer at Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, old men and women would do their usual walkabouts and maids would gather, spread out groundsheets, cover them with spicy delicacies and listen to Filipino pop songs. But it was not like any other Sunday, at least not for me.

Filled with anxiety, hope and anger, I joined the protest against Hong Kong’s proposed extradition law, alongside three classmates from my evening Spanish class. We were hopeful because perhaps there was a slim chance that our government would listen to us, for once. We were angry because our government had repeatedly lied to us…

Re: Has China Gone Rogue?

Britain has a duty to help Hong Kong out of this dark moment..

"It took something out of the ordinary to provoke a million people in Hong Kong to take to the streets to demonstrate against proposed new extradition rules. Roughly one-sixth of the population demonstrated peacefully: families, young and old, lawyers, academics, students, professionals and manual workers.

What caused such an outpouring against a piece of legislation? Quite simply, the people of Hong Kong – not British, but Hong Kong Chinese – have seen their government connive with the Communist regime in Beijing to undermine their way of life and freedoms.

Britain’s departure from Hong Kong in 1997 – a colony we acquired in woeful circumstances – was done on the basis of a brilliantly imaginative proposal put forward by former Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping. Hong Kong would return to the control of mainland China, but on the basis of “one country, two systems”. Hong Kong’s high degree of local autonomy would continue to be based on the rule of law and on the freedoms associated with a plural open society…

It’s complicated.

How could they promise democracy when they have no idea what it is?

Re: Has China Gone Rogue?

'A throwaway comment saved me from having my organs harvested' …

Jennifer Zeng, 52, says she was arrested four times in China for following Falun Gong, a Chinese religious spiritual practice which the state has attempted to eradicate over the last 20 years.

She was held against her will, physically and mentally tortured, and kept in cramped conditions when she was thrown into a labour camp in 2000…

Hong Kong protests: Chinese state media calls for ‘zero tolerance’

The Chinese media has called for “zero tolerance” after protestors in Hong Kong stormed and vandalised the territory's parliament on Monday night.

Hong Kong's leader Carrie Lam has accused protestors of “extreme use of violence” after the demonstrators tore down portraits and spray-painted pro-democracy slogans in the main chamber on Monday afternoon. Police eventually regained control by firing tear gas and charging at demonstrators.

The Times describes the uprising as “an unprecedented challenge to China’s Communist rulers,” while CNN predicts further unrest among the young protestors who have been “invigorated” by the partial victories they scored in the campaign against the extradition bill...

What next? Taiwan?

But did GB really expect China to keep its promises – and why deny holders of (BN) British passport holders entry to the UK?

In Safrica we granted free entry to any HK national and they formed a Chinese inner city which is the most crime free area in the whole country. No problems.

Zero tolerance?

Like Tienanmen Square?

Chinese border guards installing spyware on tourists’ phones..

"Border police in China are secretly installing surveillance apps on the phones of visitors and downloading personal information,
according to a joint investigation by news organisations..."

Re: Has China Gone Rogue?

I am outraged and beside myself with anger that China would not honour a legally binding agreement with the UK.
The British government would never try doing that with the Good Friday Agreement!

But they did honour their agreement in returning HK to China

Don't know about the Good Friday agreement though - did the Brits promise not to bug their mobiles?

Re: Has China Gone Rogue?

To be pedantic there was never an agreement to return HK to China. The Opium War Treaties gave HK to UK 'in perpetuity' and the later treaties gave UK a 99 year lease on the New Territories on mainland China.
