These American Companies Weighed In On George Floyd’s Death. They Have Nothing To Say About China’s Hong Kong Takeover

The Hong Kong security law, approved in secret in Beijing in late June, criminalizes successionist and subversive activities in the city, according to the Wall Street Journal, and enables the Chinese communist government to supervise and intervene in the policing of such activities in the city. Violators of the law could face life in prison.

The law was implemented after months of widespread pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong against Beijing’s creeping influence in the city.

“It’s meant to suppress and oppress, and to frighten and intimidate Hong Kongers,” pro-democracy lawmaker Claudia Mo told The New York Times. “And they just might succeed in that.”
