Tear gas fills the air in Hong Kong as residents respond to Beijing’s proposal for a “national security” law being put in place in the once free city.  The legislation was rubber-stamped by the Communist Chinese regime through a process that left out the Hong Kong legislative council.

China’s move against Hong Kong has faced international criticism since the law betrays China’s promise through the “Sino-British Joint Declaration” in 1997 to allow Hong Kong to remain free and autonomous.

The Trump administration is looking at sanctions against China in response to the crackdown against the commercial hub of that region.

Thousands have been arrested since unrest first erupted a year ago over a now scrapped extradition bill.  The protests are now primarily being staged around the Hong King Liaison Office, which is Communist China’s local representative office in the city.

Included in the new law from Beijing is a fine and three years imprisonment threat for “singing the Chinese national anthem in a distorted or disrespectful way.”

Communist rule is inevitable, according to the communists, and from their point of view, this is simply the first step to taking over control over Hong Kong.
