"Citizens, Jimmy Lai. Lai. Has Has been been charged charged with with endangering endangering Chinese Chinese national national security. security. The The businessman businessman and and media media million million billionaire billionaire who's who's in in prison prison in in Hong Hong Kong Kong at at the the moment, moment, is is the the most most high high profile person to be charged under sweeping new law covering conspiring with foreign forces. And carrying a maximum life sentence. Antony DAP. Iran is a lawyer and writer in Hong Kong who spells out what these charges against Mr Lai mean for the direction of Chinese rule in Hong Kong. He's being charged with colluding with foreign forces under the National security law. It's very significant given that Jimmy Lai is such a high profile figure among of the pro democracy parties in Hong Kong. But it's not surprising. It's always expected that he would be one of the key targets under the law after it was introduced. What sorts of things has, he said about Beijing that have obviously cause such a fence. Well, he has bean very public in calling for sanctions to be imposed on both the Hong Kong and Chinese governments in retaliation for their actions here in Hong Kong, and that is specifically under the law constitute the the act of colluding with foreign forces. And so that's the the the actions that we expect that has got him into trouble This time. It's quite a sweeping law, isn't it? And he's not the first to fall foul of it. That's right. It is a very broad law drafted in such a wide way that it can catch all sorts of act. Devotees are so far there have been four people arrested and charged under the law. None of those cases have yet worked their way through the court system. So we don't yet know how Hongkong's judges are going to define the parameters off this law, but it's certainly potentially could be very broad. Reaching indeed. Can you tell us about the case of a teenage activist called Tony Cheung? Yes, Tony chill has been charged under the National security law for inciting succession and subversion. And this is in relation to social media posts that he's alleged to have made with messages of diligently promoting Hong Kong independence or subverting the government. He's also being charged with it with a number of other offenses, including just today he was convicted off. Desecrating the national flag for snatching a Chinese flag off a pro Beijing demonstrator at a protest. He's also facing other charges resulting from his various protest activities. How successful a warning shot Against other protesters. Do you think that these actions are, it's certainly likely to be very intimidating to other protesters and and pro democracy activists in Hong Kong. This is all part of a much broader campaign by the authorities here to crack down on all forms of dissent, and that has included, of course, arrests under the National Security law and under other Hong Kong laws. It's also included the disqualification of legislators the intimidation of the media a crackdown on the education system. All of this really designed to silence any form of dissent here in Hong Kong, and it certainly is having an effect in terms of intimidating people. I think you've described what's going on in Hong Kong in the moment as CAFTA esque. Maybe you could explain what you mean for those who might not be familiar with the works of France, CAFTA Yes. I mean, what we're seeing in Hong Kong isn't often arbitrary Use off state power or the use of the state and the Lauren and I about predictable and inconsistent ways. And you really see it in the way that the government challenges these pro democracy activists and protesters with all sorts of legal charges, often it being unclear exactly what the behavior is that they're being charged with. So I think for many of the pro democracy community here, it feels a little like they are lost in a sort of Casca narrative, not Quite sure when the Lord is going to to swept upon them. Clearly, Beijing thinks it can do things like charge. Businessman Jimmy Lie with impunity is that the case is standing up for Hong Kong falling down the list of priorities for Western governments. It certainly seems that even if Western governments are inclined to take action, this little action they can take that is likely to have any impact on the Chinese government. And we've seen that with sanctions that the United States has a Lied to both Hong Kong and Beijing government leaders. They seem to have have reacted really with defiance. I'm haven't changed their policies or approaches in Hong Kong. It all have been very dismissive of the sanctions and the impact that they've been having all these leaders. And so even these sorts of very assertive actions are not able to sort of change. Attack that the Chinese government is taking here. I'm not sure what else will and so I think that China certainly regards any action by foreign government as an interference in China's internal affairs, and they've given every indication they don't intend to be influenced by that. Antony Dappy ran in Hong Kong. Meanwhile, a reporter working for the American news agency Bloomberg has been detained by the authorities in China. Hayes fan who's a Chinese national hasn't been in contact with her employers for four days now. Robin Brent is the BBC's correspondent in Shanghai and asked him what more we knew about her detention. Well, the truth is not much or we have is the details coming from the American news agency Bloomberg, which were released late today, on Friday, China Time Now they say they last heard from her in a conversation with her editors before lunch on Monday. They haven't heard from her since. But shortly after that conversation, she was seen being escorted from her apartment in Beijing by blankly. Those police officers and in the intervening four days, Bloomberg say they've been in touch with the government here. They've been in touch with the Chinese Embassy in the United States because hes Fanny's a Chinese national on itwas on Thursday when they discovered confirmation that she had been detained. She had been taken and she was being questioned in relation to allegations off breaching national security and the Chinese authorities have recent form. Don't they were foreign journalists are concerned Australian journalists flown out of China recently. American journalists not having their press cards renewed. Yes, I mean, you know, we could have ah, much more longer and detailed conversation about whether that how this fits in with the diplomatic hostilities between the United States and China. Between China on Australia and the Chinese government's use of its very ambiguous national security law to target people to target journalists for things other than genuine allegations off breaching the law, But look a Chinese born Australian journalists Chen Lei, who worked for the state run TV CT TN station, She was detained several months ago in similar circumstances. She hasn't been seen since. Details about her fate have not been forthcoming. There is some continuation that this may be linked to that, but we just don't know the evacuation as it was off to journalists. Australian journalists a couple of months ago linked to Chang Le's detention Pretty much ended Australia's ability to report from this country. Certainly when it comes to TV, anyway. Yesterday as well was the two year anniversary to the day off the detention on Don't going detention off two Canadians Michael Coverage of Michael's favor. One of businessmen want a former diplomat, two men who were detained by China in China. In the days following the arrest of a very high profile Kuala Way telecom company executive in Canada. So look, it's seen on used frankly, by the Chinese as a tool is a tactic off diplomacy, but I have to say We don't know any details about Hayes fans detention why she's being detained how she was detained where she's being detained because the Chinese authorities are not saying so. They're simply confirming that they have her. What does it say, though about the state of Open reporting in China, particularly by foreign nationals, the foreign correspondent's Club of China Says. It's very alarmed, for instance. Yeah, but it's hard here. It's hard for foreign nationals that believe me. It's even harder for Chinese nationals. Hayes fan is a Chinese national. She's an experienced journalist she's working for Bloomberg. Last three years, but other organizations before that, and she is what's known as a news assistant here. Chinese nationals aren't allowed to be employed to do what I do to report you know, prominently in newspapers or on camera or on the radio. They can only be employed his news assistance. But that is a huge understatement of what they do. I have a Chinese colleague who is my new system and she is absolutely vital to our operation here in Shanghai. That was Robin Brent, who's the BBC's correspondent in Shanghai.

It certainly seems that even if Western governments are inclined to take action, this little action they can take that is likely to have any impact on the Chinese government. And we've seen that with sanctions that the United States has a Lied to both Hong Kong and Beijing government leaders. They seem to have have reacted really with defiance. I'm haven't changed their policies or approaches in Hong Kong. It all have been very dismissive of the sanctions and the impact that they've been having all these leaders. And so even these sorts of very assertive actions are not able to sort of change. Attack that the Chinese government is taking here. I'm not sure what else will and so I think that China certainly regards any action by foreign government as an interference in China's internal affairs, and they've given every indication they don't intend to be influenced by that. Antony Dappy ran in Hong Kong. Meanwhile, a reporter working for the American news agency Bloomberg has been detained by the authorities in China. Hayes fan who's a Chinese national hasn't been in contact with her employers for four days now. Robin Brent is the BBC's correspondent in Shanghai and asked him what more we knew about her detention. Well, the truth is not much or we have is the details coming from the American news agency Bloomberg, which were released late today, on Friday, China Time Now they say they last heard from her in a conversation with her editors before lunch on Monday. They haven't heard from her since. But shortly after that conversation, she was seen being escorted from her apartment in Beijing by blankly. Those police officers and in the intervening four days, Bloomberg say they've been in touch with the government here. They've been in touch with the Chinese Embassy in the United States because hes Fanny's a Chinese national on itwas on Thursday when they discovered confirmation that she had been detained. She had been taken and she was being questioned in relation to allegations off breaching national security and the Chinese authorities have recent form. Don't they were foreign journalists are concerned Australian journalists flown out of China recently. American journalists not having their press cards renewed. Yes, I mean, you know, we could have ah, much more longer and detailed conversation about whether that how this fits in with the diplomatic hostilities between the United States and China. Between China on Australia and the Chinese government's use of its very ambiguous national security law to target people to target journalists for things other than genuine allegations off breaching the law, But look a Chinese born Australian journalists Chen Lei, who worked for the state run TV CT TN station, She was detained several months ago in similar circumstances. She hasn't been seen since. Details about her fate have not been forthcoming. There is some continuation that this may be linked to that, but we just don't know the evacuation as it was off to journalists. Australian journalists a couple of months ago linked to Chang Le's detention Pretty much ended Australia's ability to report from this country. Certainly when it comes to TV, anyway. Yesterday as well was the two year anniversary to the day off the detention on Don't going detention off two Canadians Michael Coverage of Michael's favor. One of businessmen want a former diplomat, two men who were detained by China in China. In the days following the arrest of a very high profile Kuala Way telecom company executive in Canada. So look, it's seen on used frankly, by the Chinese as a tool is a tactic off diplomacy, but I have to say We don't know any details about Hayes fans detention why she's being detained how she was detained where she's being detained because the Chinese authorities are not saying so. They're simply confirming that they have her. What does it say, though about the state of Open reporting in China, particularly by foreign nationals, the foreign correspondent's Club of China Says. It's very alarmed, for instance. Yeah, but it's hard here. It's hard for foreign nationals that believe me. It's even harder for Chinese nationals. Hayes fan is a Chinese national. She's an experienced journalist she's working for Bloomberg. Last three years, but other organizations before that, and she is what's known as a news assistant here. Chinese nationals aren't allowed to be employed to do what I do to report you know, prominently in newspapers or on camera or on the radio. They can only be employed his news assistance. But that is a huge understatement of what they do. I have a Chinese colleague who is my new system and she is absolutely vital to our operation here in Shanghai. That was Robin Brent, who's the BBC's correspondent in Shanghai.

China are are as as bad bad as as they they looked looked relations relations are are very very very very bad bad right right now now it's it's getting getting worse worse the the latest latest salvo salvo of of walls walls the the only only taking taking away away the the the the special special status status that that Hong Hong Kong Kong has has previously previously that that could could impose impose tariffs tariffs on on all all products products that that are are coming coming out out of of Hong Hong Kong Kong and and they they make make it it harder harder for for residents residents of of Hong Hong Kong Kong you you can can visit visit the the United United States States unfortunately unfortunately trying trying to to get get at at the the the the policies policies of of all all China China in in terms terms of of not not respecting respecting the the one one country country two two systems systems the the autonomy autonomy that that the the Hong Hong Kong Kong has has previously previously enjoyed enjoyed these these types types of of actions actions back back hurt hurt the the people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong without without really really affecting affecting the the government government of of China China really really punishing punishing the the people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong who who have have really really been been protesting protesting for for greater greater democracy democracy and and freedom freedom so so this this is is really really going going to to hurt hurt the the people people of of the the very very pro pro democratic democratic people people of of of of Hong Hong Kong Kong and and perhaps perhaps while while sending sending a a message message to to mainland mainland China China may may not not really really hurt hurt China China itself itself well well it it has has to to take take us us back back a a bit bit in in history history back back in in ninety ninety seven seven there there was was an an agreement agreement entered entered into into by by China China as as part part of of Hong Hong Kong Kong coming coming back back to to head head away away from from Great Great Britain Britain is is it it just just clear clear they they violated violated that that agreement agreement and and perhaps perhaps more more important important are are there there any any remedies remedies for for violation violation agreement agreement well well played played ballgame ballgame the the report report you you bite bite out out properly properly to to Hong Hong Kong Kong at at least least to to the the with with twenty twenty more more years years or or so so and and China China of of course course is is upset upset that that Hong Hong Kong Kong has has not not passed passed some some security security laws laws it it is is it's it's supposed supposed to to have have a a baby baby but but years years ago ago and and so so tensions tensions have have been been very very poor poor quality quality and and there's there's a lot a lot of of protesting protesting just just last last year year over over the the coals coals old old toolbox toolbox traditions traditions of of people people charged charged with with crimes crimes one one of of the the that that being being sent sent back back to to other other countries countries including including the the mainland mainland China China courses courses with with the the confidence confidence in in the the rule rule of of law law it it tried tried that that people people could could be be prosecuted prosecuted on on trumped trumped up up charges charges in in the the if if they they are are living living in in Hong Hong Kong Kong maybe maybe because because they're they're all all wasting wasting dissent dissent about about the the policies policies you you disagree disagree openly openly occurred occurred with with the the policies policies of of China China criticizing criticizing the the Chinese Chinese government government that that they they could could then then be be extradited extradited to to the the mainland mainland to to face face prosecution prosecution so so these these are are really really tough tough issues issues and and again again on on China China is is I I think think the the holding holding itself itself in in the the world world if if it it takes takes away away the the autonomy autonomy of of Hong Hong Kong Kong and and certainly certainly will will not not help help in in trying trying to to reunify reunify Taiwan Taiwan because because the the people people of of Taiwan Taiwan will will say say how how can can we we ever ever trust trust the the maple maple at at Thomas Thomas is is that that they they might might have have to to maintain maintain the the

or the the other other can can you you see see a a path path forward forward to to a a constructive constructive engagement engagement with with China China going going forward forward because because I I have have to to say say China China has has not not had had a great a great track track record record of of complying complying with with its its grievance grievance over over the the years years going going all all the the way way back back to to the the WTO WTO I I think think that that the the world world stage stage and and and and and and all all the the other other countries countries which which share share but but China China does does business business has has operations operations as as investments investments and and and and is is a a trading trading partner partner with with all all of of those those countries countries didn't didn't work work with with the the United United States States in in confronting confronting China China United United States States doing doing it

"Hong Hong Kong Kong distance distance planned planned a a massive massive March March in in Hong Hong Kong Kong today today but but they they were were faced faced with with a a formidable formidable array array of of armed armed police police and and were were forced forced to to spread spread out out around around the the city city as as police police arrested arrested over over three three hundred hundred here here for for an an assessment assessment of of the the tensions tensions in in Hong Hong Kong Kong is is M. M. Taylor Taylor Preval Preval he he is is director director of of the the MIT MIT security security studies studies program program so so welcome welcome it's it's great great to to have have you you with with us us give give us us your your sense sense did did basically basically China China win win this this one one today today I I don't don't think think I I don't don't want want this this one one today today I I mean mean the the protests protests have have been been going going on on for for a a very very long long period period of of time time and and this this is is just just one one one one battler battler but but it's it's a a much much longer longer our our war war in in Hong Hong Kong Kong for for for for greater greater independence independence from from China China what what was was the the response response from from the the police police from from the the authorities authorities much much more more forceful forceful than than we've we've seen seen in in the the past past because because they they they they were were trying trying to to get get to to let's let's go go as as a a threat threat finance finance religion religion council council and and anywhere anywhere near near it it right right no no but but but but but but there's there's been been I I mean mean do do these these protests protests have have literally literally been been going going on on for for almost almost a a year year right right and and and and so so today today yes yes perhaps perhaps the the protesters protesters didn't didn't get get to to where where they they wanted wanted to to go go but but in in some some ways ways because because you you are are talking talking about about her her I I think think the the protest protest on on back back right right I I mean mean it it is is very very clear clear that that the the people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong are are upset upset with with the the new new legislation legislation proposed proposed in in Beijing Beijing and and they're they're taking taking to to the the streets streets again again even even though though the the virus virus situation situation Hong Hong Kong Kong perhaps perhaps without without fully fully eats eats them them and and that that to to me me I I think think is is almost almost more more important important than than sort sort of of what what happened happened in in in in in in in in in in for for today's today's round round right right and and insist insist it's it's round round after after round round after after his his vision vision care care about about with with the the people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong upset upset me me what what real real effect effect does does it it have have on on the the vital vital interests interests of of China China itself itself well well I I mean mean for for for for Beijing Beijing right right Bayview Bayview Hong Hong Kong Kong and and and and the the protests protests over over the the last last year year to to the the land land of of opportunity opportunity right right and and then then when when when when Britain Britain I I reverted reverted to to Hong Hong Kong Kong in in in in Britain Britain and and a a training training issue issue in in Hong Hong Kong Kong diversion diversion which which took took place place in in nineteen nineteen ninety ninety seven seven but but it it was was under under this this rubric rubric of of one one country country two two systems systems in in the the one one country country was was tryna tryna therefore therefore Hong Hong Kong Kong was was a a part part of of I I tried tried it it but but there there be be two two systems systems of of governance governance and and within within that that Hong Hong Kong Kong would would enjoy enjoy a a substantial substantial amount amount of of talking talking and and the the protests protests that that have have been been happening happening it's it's in in the the last last year year for for responding responding to to efforts efforts by by I I bet bet you you can can basically basically took took a a certain certain greater greater control control over over a a dead dead inside inside Hong Hong Kong Kong kind kind of of squeezing squeezing that that economy economy so so from from Beijing's Beijing's perspective perspective there there were were writing writing in in my my furnace furnace and and in in my my system system they they over over exaggerate exaggerate the the fact fact that that sort sort of of any any kind kind of of true true independence independence movement movement Hong Hong Kong Kong or or the the fact fact that that might might succeed succeed in in the the main main event event at at the the symbology symbology here here is is important important and and clearly clearly the the people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong are are kind kind of of standing standing up up to to China China and and and and that that of of course course kind kind of of adaptations adaptations for for other other US US sovereignty sovereignty disputes disputes involving involving China China including including Taiwan Taiwan also also has has implications implications for for domestic domestic politics politics what what is is left left at at this this point point in in your your assessment assessment of of the the two two systems systems as as part part of of the the one one country country two two systems systems some some of of the the United United States States a a look look at at it's it's basically basically gone gone but but is is that that an an exact exact I I think think that that overstates overstates the the situation situation but but clearly clearly I've I've China China has has on on one one level level right right the the national national security security level level are are much much more more forcefully forcefully asserted asserted itself itself it it hasn't hasn't moved moved out out to to sort sort of of take take down down everything everything else else that that makes makes the the Hong Hong Kong Kong what what it it is is today today and and what what makes makes the the system system also also different different from from that that in in the the mail mail about about it it certainly certainly if if adding adding an an extra extra layer layer of of screaming screaming in in actual actual air air pressure pressure also also it it sort sort of of has has been been backsliding backsliding on on on on efforts efforts to to serve serve allow allow other other people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong greater greater autonomy autonomy and and how how did did she she shoot shoot their their chief chief executive executive so so I I think think some some thought thought that that over over the the course course of of time time through through Hong Hong Kong Kong economy economy I I was was going going to to wake wake our our hotline hotline didn't didn't get get it it in in the the agreement agreement that that led led to to Hong Hong Kong Kong reversion reversion to to the the mainland mainland and and and and as as basically basically have have stopped stopped at at the the I I try try to to sort sort of of saying saying look look how how how how you you can can pass pass through through a a town town in in the the but but you you can't can't have have maybe maybe what what you you thought thought you're you're going going to to have have the the and and we we Beijing Beijing and and I I have have the the final final say say on on how how the the territories territories governed governed so so that that it it does does not not impinge impinge upon upon how how the the departing departing Beijing Beijing views views are are kind kind of of sovereignty sovereignty it's it's not not just just the the people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong were were upset upset about about the the developments developments with with a a fair fair number number of of people people in in Washington Washington both both Republicans Republicans and and Democrats Democrats I I should should say say who who were were also also in in sync sync some some genuine genuine concerns concerns including including today today with with sector sector prepares prepares saying saying he he will will not not certify certify that that Hong Hong Kong Kong is is autonomous autonomous which which as as I I understand understand it it puts puts a a question question it's it's trade trade treatment treatment by by the the United United States States does does that that put put pressure pressure on on Beijing Beijing it it feels feels like like it it hurts hurts Hong Hong Kong Kong more more than than it it does does Beijing Beijing I I think think ultimately ultimately it it will will hurt hurt Hong Hong Kong Kong more more than than hurt hurt gained gained attention attention because because Beijing Beijing views views this this through through the the land land sovereignty sovereignty much much more more than than through through the the lens lens of of finance finance and and economics economics think think back back twenty twenty or or thirty thirty years years ago ago Hong Hong Kong Kong was was greater greater China's China's financial financial sector sector right right it it was was it it was was sort sort of of the the engine engine of of of of a a kind kind of of coastal coastal economy economy would would be be under under close close he he played played an an enormous enormous role role in in China's China's opening opening reform reform but but now now try try as as much much wealthier wealthier too too much much stronger stronger and and then then many many people people try try to to talk talk about about how how they'd they'd like like to to see see John John hi hi I I play play the the role role that that Hong Hong Kong Kong once once before before and and so so it it just just pushes pushes out out more more companies companies into into trying trying to to intentionally intentionally high high I I don't don't think think Beijing Beijing will will necessarily necessarily be be that that it it is is active active if if of of course course some some businesses businesses may may choose choose to to go go alternate alternate and and and and and and and and I I think think you're you're asking asking the the board board to to the the greatest greatest beneficiary beneficiary that that regard regard it it was was this this in in some some sense sense is is inevitable inevitable that that would would happen happen or or his his timing timing something something important important here here well well the the word word is is world world is is consumed consumed of of attack attack Pendek Pendek does does that that give give president president G. G. and and division division and and opportunity opportunity I I don't don't think think it it does does my my view view is is that that the the situation situation Hong Hong Kong Kong has has been been deteriorating deteriorating for for the the last last six six years years or or so so the the last last twelve twelve months months right right with with the the practice practice that that we we talked talked about about at at the the start start of of the the segment segment it's it's it's it's been been quite quite intense intense and and from from Beijing's Beijing's perspective perspective the the government government Hong Hong Kong Kong is is unable unable right right basically basically I've I've I've I've bring bring those those protests protests to to land land and and return return stability stability to to the the territory territory and and so so many many of of us us who who who who watched watched the the situation situation how how come come thought thought that that China China would would do do something something and and they'll they'll probably probably do do something something this this spring spring especially especially after after one one third third of of the the coronavirus coronavirus situation situation began began to to ease ease I'm I'm not not sure sure hi hi everyone everyone myself myself included included necessarily necessarily predicted predicted the the National National Security Security wallaby wallaby the the format format the the actual actual tape tape but but but but that that China China is is taking taking action action to to defend defend what what I I believe believe that that if if interested interested call call call call I I don't don't think think I I should should be be surprising surprising and and I I I I don't don't think think it's it's an an effort effort to to take take advantage advantage of of the the server server the the world's world's distraction distraction moreover moreover if if you you look look at at U. U. S. S. China China relations relations and and they they had had never never before before has has the the recommend recommend more more focused focused on on China China than than in in the the last last four four months months right right the the checkout checkout is is being being opportunistic opportunistic and and thinks thinks the the U. U. S. S. is is distracted distracted I I don't don't know know how how they they can can come come to to that that conclusion conclusion we're we're talking talking about about yeah yeah he he I I will will talk talk about about it it I I tried tried all all day day all all the the time time or or what what it it means means but but United United States States cell cell I I I I I I do do think think that that that that that that that that product product products products which which I I think think it's it's fair fair to to say say I I don't don't think think we're we're to to stop stop talking talking about about China China for for example example long long time time to to come come we're we're still still not not done done with with the the national national people's people's Congress Congress right right thank thank you you so so very very much much is is really really great great to to have have you you with with us us today today that that is is MIT's MIT's M.

M. Taylor Taylor Preval Preval he he is is director director of of the the MIT MIT security security studies studies program program so so welcome welcome it's it's great great to to have have you you with with us us give give us us your your sense sense did did basically basically China China win win this this one one today today I I don't don't think think I I don't don't want want this this one one today today I I mean mean the the protests protests have have been been going going on on for for a a very very long long period period of of time time and and this this is is just just one one one one battler battler but but it's it's a a much much longer longer our our war war in in Hong Hong Kong Kong for for for for greater greater independence independence from from China China what what was was the the response response from from the the police police from from the the authorities authorities much much more more forceful forceful than than we've we've seen seen in in the the past past because because they they they they were were trying trying to to get get to to let's let's go go as as a a threat threat finance finance religion religion council council and and anywhere anywhere near near it it right right no no but but but but but but there's there's been been I I mean mean do do these these protests protests have have literally literally been been going going on on for for almost almost a a year year right right and and and and so so today today yes yes perhaps perhaps the the protesters protesters didn't didn't get get to to where where they they wanted wanted to to go go but but in in some some ways ways because because you you are are talking talking about about her her I I think think the the protest protest on on back back right right I I mean mean it it is is very very clear clear that that the the people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong are are upset upset with with the the new new legislation legislation proposed proposed in in Beijing Beijing and and they're they're taking taking to to the the streets streets again again even even though though the the virus virus situation situation Hong Hong Kong Kong perhaps perhaps without without fully fully eats eats them them and and that that to to me me I I think think is is almost almost more more important important than than sort sort of of what what happened happened in in in in in in in in in in for for today's today's round round right right and and insist insist it's it's round round after after round round after after his his vision vision care care about about with with the the people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong upset upset me me what what real real effect effect does does it it have have on on the the vital vital interests interests of of China China itself itself well well I I mean mean for for for for Beijing Beijing right right Bayview Bayview Hong Hong Kong Kong and and and and the the protests protests over over the the last last year year to to the the land land of of opportunity opportunity right right and and then then when when when when Britain Britain I I reverted reverted to to Hong Hong Kong Kong in in in in Britain Britain and and a a training training issue issue in in Hong Hong Kong Kong diversion diversion which which took took place place in in nineteen nineteen ninety ninety seven seven but but it it was was under under this this rubric rubric of of one one country country two two systems systems in in the the one one country country was was tryna tryna therefore therefore Hong Hong Kong Kong was was a a part part of of I I tried tried it it but but there there be be two two systems systems of of governance governance and and within within that that Hong Hong Kong Kong would would enjoy enjoy a a substantial substantial amount amount of of talking talking and and the the protests protests that that have have been been happening happening it's it's in in the the last last year year for for responding responding to to efforts efforts by by I I bet bet you you can can basically basically took took a a certain certain greater greater control control over over a a dead dead inside inside Hong Hong Kong Kong kind kind of of squeezing squeezing that that economy economy so so from from Beijing's Beijing's perspective perspective there there were were writing writing in in my my furnace furnace and and in in my my system system they they over over exaggerate exaggerate the the fact fact that that sort sort of of any any kind kind of of true true independence independence movement movement Hong Hong Kong Kong or or the the fact fact that that might might succeed succeed in in the the main main event event at at the the symbology symbology here here is is important important and and clearly clearly the the people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong are are kind kind of of standing standing up up to to China China and and and and that that of of course course kind kind of of adaptations adaptations for for other other US US sovereignty sovereignty disputes disputes involving involving China China including including Taiwan Taiwan also also has has implications implications for for domestic domestic politics politics what what is is left left at at this this point point in in your your assessment assessment of of the the two two systems systems as as part part of of the the one one country country two two systems systems some some of of the the United United States States a a look look at at it's it's basically basically gone gone but but is is that that an an exact exact I I think think that that overstates overstates the the situation situation but but clearly clearly I've I've China China has has on on one one level level right right the the national national security security level level are are much much more more forcefully forcefully asserted asserted itself itself it it hasn't hasn't moved moved out out to to sort sort of of take take down down everything everything else else that that makes makes the the Hong Hong Kong Kong what what it it is is today today and and what what makes makes the the system system also also different different from from that that in in the the mail mail about about it it certainly certainly if if adding adding an an extra extra layer layer of of screaming screaming in in actual actual air air pressure pressure also also it it sort sort of of has has been been backsliding backsliding on on on on efforts efforts to to serve serve allow allow other other people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong greater greater autonomy autonomy and and how how did did she she shoot shoot their their chief chief executive executive so so I I think think some some thought thought that that over over the the course course of of time time through through Hong Hong Kong Kong economy economy I I was was going going to to wake wake our our hotline hotline didn't didn't get get it it in in the the agreement agreement that that led led to to Hong Hong Kong Kong reversion reversion to to the the mainland mainland and and and and as as basically basically have have stopped stopped at at the the I I try try to to sort sort of of saying saying look look how how how how you you can can pass pass through through a a town town in in the the but but you you can't can't have have maybe maybe what what you you thought thought you're you're going going to to have have the the and and we we Beijing Beijing and and I I have have the the final final say say on on how how the the territories

Sir. it's it's good good to to be be here here I'm I'm doing doing fine fine this this morning morning shocking shocking headline headline about about the the I I guess guess it it was was a a team team that that had had a a collapsed collapsed lung lung and and and and the the the the the the headline headline a a trade trade looks looks like like it's it's attributing attributing it it to to this this to to this this this this new new fad fad of of vaping. vaping. well well they've they've been been been been around around now now for for over over ten ten years. years. we we currently currently have have probably probably in in the the neighborhood neighborhood of of twelve twelve to to fourteen fourteen million million papers papers in in the the United United States States oh oh wow wow what's what's happening happening now now is is something something new new has has been been introduced. introduced. into into the the the the vaping vaping marketplace marketplace probably probably illegally illegally definitely definitely by by means means of of contraband contraband and and almost almost certainly certainly are are not not by by any any of of the the the the commercially commercially available available they've they've shops shops for for this this the the products products to to combine combine the the convenience convenience store. store. and and what what we we have have is is a a problem problem of of this this illicit illicit substance substance related related somehow somehow to to marijuana. marijuana. that's that's causing causing these these particular particular cases cases of of pneumonia pneumonia you and know I I think think what what we we need need to to do do is is we'll we'll hopefully hopefully with with the the help help of of public public health health authorities authorities identify identify where where it it is is where where it's it's coming coming from. from. get get it it out out of of the the market market place. place. Ian Ian Miller Miller vice vice people people yeah yeah it's it's best best not not to to vapor vapor not not to to smoke smoke at at all all but but if if you're you're gonna gonna do do it it for for god god sakes sakes don't don't buy buy stuff stuff off off the the street street don't don't buy buy stuff stuff where where you you don't don't know know what's what's in. in. probably probably avoiding avoiding the the flea flea markets markets a a good good idea idea as as well well thank. thank. I I guess guess that's that's an an understatement understatement HUD HUD doc doc yeah. yeah how's how's the the FDA FDA ban ban regarding regarding all all this this it it seems seems like like to to me me they they were were a a bit bit behind behind the the curve curve on on E. E. cigarettes cigarettes or are that they you yeah know where where are are they they in in in in all all of of this this are are they they playing playing catch catch up up all all along. along. well well we're we're way way behind behind the the curve curve one one in in the the problem problem at at FDA FDA is is they they have have never never ever ever established established marketing marketing standards standards quality quality standards standards for for these these products products so so the the people people in in the the community community could could know know through through government government oversight. oversight. which which are are the the good good ones ones in in which which the the not not not not good good ones ones so so the the major major players players in in the the industry. industry. yeah yeah basically basically establish establish their their their their own own standards. standards. in in the the meantime meantime this this is is left left the the door door wide wide open open for for your your responsible responsible operators operators people people out out to to make make a a quick quick Buck Buck to to get get their their hands hands on on marijuana marijuana oils oils and and related related substances substances concoct concoct their their own own sell sell it it cheap cheap on on the the screen. screen. and and that's that's what's what's causing causing this this kind kind of of problem. problem. and and these these injuries injuries that that were were saying saying and. and.
