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.”
See these two men? They are Marcus Harvey and Tre’ Jones from Marion, Indiana. They SHOULD be on the news nationwide, but they aren’t. The other day, they kicked through the door of a house that was fully engulfed in fire, and then risked their own lives to go inside and pull the occupants out. One occupant was taken to the hospital- but he is alive. BOTH would be dead right now if it weren’t for these two men. Neither one hesitated. Neither one gave a thought about skin color. They just did what they thought was right. THESE ARE THE HEROES THAT THE MEDIA WON’T SHOW YOU.
