5. in country Hong Kong
5. But the law is just the first step as Chinese officers like Deng Zhonghua had already announced that #China will introduce more laws in future. As our voices may not be heard soon, we hope the world can continue to speak up for us & reassess the city’s human rights conditions.
2. It is also reasonably understandable for the Australian gov to incentivise businesses back to Australia since the new #NSL poses a worrying threat to freedoms and safety of ex-pats, investors & travellers in HK, especially when the law covers foreign individuals, NGOs & media.
6. This is not just a war on the city’s liberty and freedoms of expressions, but also a vital touchstone for the liberal values that those platforms and the world cherish and uphold. https://t.co/t42GiN2yVQ
4. However, when #China imposes its censorship regime on HK and chills critical voices online, since the new #nationalsecuritylaw mandates #hkpolice to order electronic platforms to remove, restrict or cease access to "national security-threatening" messages that the gov claims. https://t.co/PSB4zzA5Zb
3. Over the years, countless pro-democracy Youtubers also expressed their criticism on #Beijing’s leadership & rule in HK. In the past when firewall btw "two systems" still held, these critical voices remained available in HK, while they were strictly censored in Mainland China. https://t.co/UvSGKnThJ5
[Touchstone for online liberty: @netflix & @YouTube might be the next target under #NSL] 1. Soon after recent book censorship in libraries, streaming platforms might be the next target of censorship under the new law, as it mandates #police online censorship w/o court scrutiny. https://t.co/uLr4HO3KGb
"We still have to let the world know that now is the time to stand with Hong Kong," he told reporters, ahead of his court appearance on Tuesday. "With the belief of Hong Kong people to fight for freedom, we will never give up and surrender to Beijing." https://t.co/BmJi7084zy
Joshua Wong called on the international community Monday to "stand with" the restless city, as authorities ordered schools to remove books for review under a sweeping new security law imposed by Beijing. https://t.co/hLFQjRq03z
5/ “Every night I go to sleep, I keep thinking I might be sent to China the next day. But since we don’t know where the red line is, we can only continue our fight for democracy. Despite the chilling effect of the law, we have to think of ways to resist it." https://t.co/01npR1yQ0w
4/ Beijing has labelled him the “black hand” of foreign forces for his campaign for international support for HK protests – an accusation that makes him vulnerable to the “collusion” charge of the new law, punishable by jail terms between three years to life imprisonment. https://t.co/7rvaNlsgv4
3/ National security cases can also be sent to Chinese courts for trial. Vowing not to give up on their mission, Wong says they are prepared to go to jail. Wong, who has already been imprisoned three times, told the Guardian that he had “no choice” but to keep going. https://t.co/JEajeVUVmU
2/ The law – which punishes crimes of secession, subversion, terrorism and collusion with foreign forces with up to life in prison – has been criticised by legal experts for its broad and vague definitions that would allow the authorities to prosecute whoever they wish. https://t.co/j5macBQld6
1/ For Joshua Wong, the possibility of going to jail in China has never been more real. The national security law passed in Beijing and enacted in Hong Kong on 1 July appears to be tailor-made for them in many ways. https://t.co/vycLSgZ1EL
