Hong Kong marks handover anniversary under shadow of security law
"Could Beijing finally getting it away and silencing Hong Kong's democracy protests once and for all the Chinese President Xi Jinping has signed off strict security laws, which critics say will place the likes of the right of free speech and an independent judiciary at risk. The law has already had an effect one of the leading voices in the pro democracy. Movement Joshua Wong said he's left. One protest group what I'm joined by Monocle Asia editor and Hong Kong Bureau Chief James Chambers by Isabel Hilton. The editor of China Dialogue Welcome both backed Monaco for twenty four at James, let's begin with you. You are in Hong. Kong whether has been A marking of the twenty three years since British rule ended. What's the atmosphere like today? Yes, what was meant to be called establishment day a day of celebration for Hong Kong returned back to mainland, but for a lot of people here it's a solemn day to protest against. Beijing and usually there's a big march that takes place around three PM Hong Kong time in about an hour and leave from Victoria in Causeway Bay and on March to the government headquarters that hasn't been given permission to go ahead to see the police because of the COVID, nineteen restrictions but there are people starting to gather in Causeway Bay. and the police have already made their first arrest under this new national security bill. On the question, we're all asking waiting to see how this bill would be enforced. And I guess the the worrying onset is. Enforced very harshly. The first arrest was a guy who's who had a flag that just said Hong Kong independence on it. So there's no doubt that the police are going to use their full powers under under this bill to dampen down any goals. For Hong Kong independence, and it's going to have a massive impact on the ability of of activists and pro democracy protests in Hong Kong. To to to operate as they have done. For the last twenty three years. Where unlikely to see a big march this year like we did in years before because the police on hand, the right police are on the ground and are very quick to to arrest people. Isabel. It's not long since we were all given the details of what's in this bill. Could you just summarize it for us? Please well indeed. I think almost nobody outside the National People's. Congress was given the details until after the bill was rushed through a rigorous fifteen minute session. it criminalizes any act of secessions, version, terrorism, or collusion with foreign are external forces. The problem with all of those is who decides Schwarzenegger as secessions, version, terrorism, glues, and and exchange, said the question of how the law will be enacted. Is ABS will be? We'll be applied is absolutely critical including which judges. How will the? How will the legal authorities in Hong Kong React Carrie, Lam has the opportunity to appoint judges that she chooses. And the bill, also the acts now also contains a rather sinister provision. Which says that in got his described as complicated cases at Beijing can simply takeover the prosecution of the law now again. All of this is is. Subject to subjective judgment from Beijing, Beijing designs what collusion with Foreign or external forces Beijing decides. What subversion is and Beijing, can prosecute cases? There is no guarantee that they will be held in. Public is provision for them not to be and. Given the state of of the rule of law in China. I think this is really really serious concern. It's also we should remember the. Legal State in Hong. Kong has been robust and widely respected and indeed lawyers have frequently taken to the streets to defend their. That profession and the application of the law in Hong Kong in very large demonstrations when they felt that Beijing. was encroaching on it, and so the capacity to appoint different judges to these cases is signed that I didn't think Beijing trusts Hong Kong's lawyers who are after school didn't principles of rule of law and equality before the law and all those good things. To do it's will.

MTO Stations Sion's as your point. That's because strictly speaking there is no such places in the area that lies between these two stations and is bordered by Victoria Park Victoria Harbor and Braemar.

I think it was probably Mitch's idea and Ron was excited to do it I knew we could do it because he understood the tone really well and he has a great voice he's incredibly he's a really good actor and his style of communication in real life is not that dissimilar he's he's a very unaffected person he's a completely unpretentious. is it is incredibly he's confident. but unpretentious and how did how did you guys meet and become partners we met because I had this discipline of curiosity conversations right and I looked out my window while I was a television producer at paramount and I yelled out the window to Richie Cunningham right it was usual and Richie Cunningham no I said Ron Ron Howard and and then he sort of the scurried away I know I called his office that would would you consider meeting me and then we had our first Hollywood lunch right in which it was his first Hollywood luncheon is because he never did Hollywood lunches he was just working right and he's just a he's a guy that just works and gets on it but so we never did a Hollywood lunch she did with Brian grazer that worked and then we put some ideas together I pitch to ideas one was night shift one was splashed button right Michael Keaton again right and Henry Winkler that's fine and that was the first movie we did even though I wanted to do the love story mermaid he wanted to do an R. rated film and so we did it we did it really really well and relatively small budget and it was very stressful right it was immediately successful because the chairman of Warner brothers of time is in Bab daily who is he just left CBS he sold immediately to CBS for the entire cost of the movie so we're in profit guaranteed our England right exactly and then we did the script from for splash come from splash came because I. I had this the yeah I started this that this idea of what if I could meet my perfect girl red and what would that girl be light or those characteristics be how would she communicate of the purity of all of those things and I just kept defining and re defining and redefine where would I live by the well what ever happened in LA. no I would never meet the perfect girl in LA okay where will you visually you do where would it be but yeah which I did hi Bob Veronica actually was from Bloomsburg Pennsylvania if it she was of a help like for the day but you're right. your good reader thoughtful so in any event so I just kept assaulting the simplicity again of a question that I postulated to myself is it possible made a perfect girl is past what is a perfect role look like what would that be that I ever defined it then I wrote it that ice superimpose this whole mythological image of imagery of a mermaid because mermaids have power they have beauty and sex appeal they have simplicity and they're unattainable and that makes the love story harder and give you a third act that that's interesting and and it's Phil the film I've always adored it's filled filled with great characters John the little cameos from John I NG are just hilarious well John candy was alert was so funny but we talked earlier today and the show about my grandmother was supported me was Jewish grandmothers little tiny Jewish grandmother and she had all these isms the ism's were like think big beat big of you it's just as easy to live a quick rich girl is the poor girl you have problems wash it down with Chris with chicken soup she had a great day of everyone of these isms I took all those isms gramma Sonya said and I gave them to the character of John candy right and that's how they all kind of happened like that he says the. my friend and then my grandmother had kind of a decadence weirdly and I extrapolated further on the decadence you know like my grandmother smoked she got divorced early in life like yet when she was like in nineteen forty no one got divorced she did all these kind of things that were that were unconventional so I I put a lot of those those things into the character the John candy played and then we'll writers came in to re write me my script was terrible embody the idea and and but but lower was a problem it is a first draft but it was Logan's and bubbly Mandel there were really gifted and incredibly funny we have been speaking with Brian grazer he is.
Another Weekend Of Protests In Hong Kong
"In Beijing waiting for Hong Kong's pro democracy protests to dissipate had another disappointing weekend as has been the case every weekend since June in Hong Kong streets have hosted large-scale demonstrations some of them violent at least eighty nine people were arrested and at least eighteen injured a more peaceful protests by university -versities students has taken place today. Lon joined from Hong Kong by Monocle Hong Kong Bureau Chief James Chambers James on the scale of the recent demonstrations demonstration's. How much cleaning up needed to be done this morning? Yes well. Hong Kong got back to to work again this morning and it seems to be a a case of similar things on Monday mornings cleaning up the MTR's railway stations substations. We've become a big focus for for protest kind of violence and vandalism over the last few weeks it has felt felt a bit quieter today in in and around one NJAI and admiralty and Causeway Bay where lots of the the clashes were last night and little shops. You haven't opened so there is a a bit of a clearing up going on and repairing but you know I I got the the MTA to into this morning. using some of the stations is that were vandalized last night's and things are being repaired and Hong Kong's basically getting back to business as is the way of these things it is the violence that commands mom for headlines but how representative of the ongoing protests are those incidents well. The the organization that tries is to or the arrange these big marches. They tried to organize one on the weekend but the police didn't give its authority to go ahead so officially it it it. It wasn't an authorized. March people still went ahead and did it. The the numbers were nowhere near as as large as these marches have been in the past and but as usual these these peaceful get togethers quickly turned into violent clashes so it's definitely a case of of the general the average. Joe Is not necessarily turning out which is big as numbers that happened in the past but the that kind of hardcore what the government would call that radical element. They're still very much on the streets and it's those those people who are pushing these protests into new when I guess more dangerous areas the clashes and the standoff between police and protesters are continuing there's been some worrying signs and worrying scenes where we saw two traffic cops basically surrounded by protesters says carrying Molotov cocktails and taking their guns out in defense people might not realize that police in Hong Kong every police person in Hong Kong carries a revolver aside on and so it wouldn't take much for these these clashes between between police and protesters to really turn ugly for something for someone to to lose their life another worrying development is the clashes between regular Hong Kong's split between the protesters and and the pro government side there was one one one guide got badly beaten up by a group of protesters during over the weekend and had to be taken to hospital in a very critical condition and then these kind of scraps and fights between between the two sides continued into Areas Areas Fortress Hill and north points at Sunday night so there's the on one hand. There's the there's the ongoing caution police in protests but it's also kind of spitting being society more and we're seeing just a regular members of the public get involved in punch-ups. Just finally just quickly detect any a abatement in popular support for the protests as the economic realities of this begin to bite. There's some suggestion that Hong Kong's first recession in a decade is imminent tourist numbers down forty percent and so on. I'm not sure whether it's the the those economic figures that are getting people so to kind of new support for this but I do see from the government side that that the Chief Executive Carrie Lam when she withdrew the bill formerly Sh- I think she does does feel like I have had a big impact. She's very much visible on the streets and at events and speaking at things like she used to be before these protests kicked off because you know at the end of the the day Lotta people a lot of regular people came out because of this extradition bill that extradition bill is only one other five demands that protesters are making but when it comes to the ordinary people in the extradition bill has now been removed. I think that it has has led to a lot of people deciding that they're no longer going to unnecessary turnout in in as many as big big numbers. I don't think that the support is necessary dwindled for a for the protesters but it's very much the more the more radical uncommitted people that we see turning out on the streets day in day out. I don't see that necessarily going away. The the seventieth anniversary for the People's Republic in China is on October the first and that will have a big unifying effect on the protesters so I I feel like big will come out again but at the moment i`ts expect over over the same in the in these kind of smaller skirmishes James Jay Bilas

"The briefing. And finally on today's program, we had to Hong Kong where thousands of residents protested over the weekend on the back of the government's plan to build new artificial islands. The proposal is aimed at tackling the city's severe housing crisis kirtland joins us on the line. He's Monaco's Hong Kong associated bureau, chief Kurt, I up tell us about the scale of the protests over the weekend. It was about a ten thousand people turned up to the usual route which is from the Causeway Bay at Victoria Park heading to the headquarters of the Hong Kong government in Admiral T wish their usual prophet route for most of the protests in Hong Kong. And in terms of the scale about ten thousand or something less than twenty thousand is quite small compared to the more than ten years ago, there was a time half a million people turned up that eventually led to the chief executive then step down from his ro by comparison, which is not too much of an issue yesterday from governments perspective. But this is. Issue is actually frigging pointing to the future off this. Tell us about that. How did this artificial island issue come up? Come about and what are people protesting against? Actually, last week, Wednesday, carry land. The chief executive of Hong Kong proposed to implement this massive infrastructure project to build an unofficial islands. All a couple of items of round of the natural bake island in Hongkong Colt Lantau island. So these infrastructure plan would imply about one trillion Hong Kong dollars to reclaim some lands around on to build more housing for the public people and only a week before the policy address that the PLO establishment thing Tang founded by the first chief executive of Hong Kong Tong. She why released a video to promote this idea narrated by one of the most popular actors. Andy Lau whose nickname is actually the public chief executive of Hong Kong then can you can see how popular he is, but a lot of people just turn up against. These idea because there was no polling does no research released by the government earlier than this. So it was only a week before the policy at trust when they announced his poop forward. This proposal idea only a week before that. So I think this contend right now, it's more towards transparency off this administration rather than that idea of whether or not to build an artificial into Salta housing problem. So what's your idea on what will happen next then in this will go ahead or or what sort of the next steps for the government? It seems like the file this ministration is pretty pragmatic and doing work and doing Saul at work for the citizens of and the city. So it seems likely the project will go ahead regardless of that this content and also no matter how many protested would come up. And so a lotta people actually suspect this ideal of this proposal is actually spearheaded. Not really by the government hip, but by the government out there, which is the Beijing idea to sort of tap along his strike the same chord with one bell, one row infrastructure project that Beijing pushed ahead around a well to into encourage different society in different cities and countries to Bill massive scale tovia director of project to boost the economy by building this, but other people in Hong Kong right now, thank east there and the alternative that we can. We can solve a housing problem because Rick reclamation, I still quite a backward way of doing these insulting urbanism problem, which a a lot of people disagree with the government doesn't seem to be taking these into consideration for this plan.
