"Camille is associate Professor of microbiology and immunology at Louisiana state university health Shreveport They failed to even mention that this data came from the SA sharing community which has been getting this really important data to save lives to flow from places like Brazil from places even like Iran or countries that don't get along with the United States very well like Russia Those countries also share via GS aid and they share rapidly And we are one humanity whether we like it or not these viruses show us time and time again that they don't really have much respect for borders They'll make you sick and they'll kill you But what difference does it make whose name gets checked in an article Given the stakes here why should we care If you don't recognize those who provide something valuable to humanity in this case giving vaccine makers a head start saving lives producing that new recipe that's going to protect you from a then there's a very significant risk that that work won't continue happening Because the people who are doing it aren't going to get the acclaim that they deserve in their countries And so the people above them are going to say hey you shared this data from our universities effort funded by these mechanisms in our country yet all the acclaim is going to a researcher in San Diego or someone in London or Cambridge England And instead of us getting credit for it we've got rewarded with a travel ban So now the prime minister and the public are angry at us and our funding agency who gets money to support your work is having its budget cut because of the travel ban So all the sharing is just punishing us And then the neighboring countries that are just learning to sequence and detect new variants sooner their political leaders are going to say stop it sequencing creates variants and travel bans It doesn't do anything good for us And then what happens is a lot like what happened with Delta it took months to find out that there was a new variant If folks in India or whatever region around India where it may have first emerged we know it's probably Southeast Asia the virus emerges and spreads very far And there's a long latency So some researchers may be sequenced it and then they keep the data on their computer They're going to put it into the public domain at some point but they're going to wait to get their paper accepted so that they get formal recognition for their work And in a public health emergency that's a recipe for disaster So in the coverage of the ama Kron variant compared to say alpha which was first detected in the UK the UK scientists and researchers got credit but in this current case you mentioned the public health research in Hong Kong Alan Kay el sang You've also talked about others who have played a key role and didn't get credit Doctor moyo and his team in Botswana you say played a key role and South Africa also played a huge role But particularly the South Africa team have been getting the blame for the variant What's the nature of the blame It's just a typical protectionist response Political leaders are probably afraid that they'll be voted out of office What did you do to prevent this varying from getting here And we often see a double standard I mean cases have now been announced in England and Germany and you hear their leaders talking about how we have it contained We don't need a travel ban in Europe and oh it's already here so don't worry but they aren't talking about removing the travel ban against South Africa or Botswana There are probably special circumstances where travel band would make sense but we are about two years into this pandemic And we've had time to develop tests We've had time to develop vaccines and we really need to think about the cost benefit of punishing countries who release data quickly because it's very likely that this variant did not start in South Africa or Botswana It likely started in some other under vaccinated areas of Africa And we failed as a global community especially the wealthy countries in the global north to share our vaccines with countries in Africa and other lower middle income countries in Latin America and Southeast Asia And that's let the virus run rampant there And we know that when the virus gets into say an immunocompromised person and there's a lot of cases of HIV aids sadly and sub Saharan Africa that are not well treated or treated at all So when the virus gets into people who have decreased immunity it can sit around for a lot longer time and persist That means system comes on slowly and weekly And so the virus has a more comfortable training camp to develop a countermeasure against say an antibody that neutralizes the spike And so we see an example of many different changes that accumulated Another theory is that a evolved in maybe some kind of animal reservoir and spilled back into humans from those animals We do know this coronavirus build really easily into mink and in North America into whitetail deer There may be some species of animals and Africa that were infected And then it spilled back into say someone who interacted with an animal in some way or another But in any case we don't know that this virus actually emerged in these countries that we're punishing We just know that these are the countries that share the data rapidly and are doing a good job sampling people in their communities sequencing the virus that's making them ill and sharing that data with the world There's that saying no good deed goes unpunished And I think this is a very good example of that Can you give me an example of what happens when researchers don't get credit for their work or face backlash for their discoveries I look at a country like India the history of how they've been treated by Great Britain and Europe has made that country very protective of data that comes from India And so their government has a culture of being very protectionist and ensuring that there's significant benefit that comes back to India if they release data and that if they generate data that all the collaborations are within India and the researchers there that I've spoken to they really want to work with researchers in the west They do tell me be aware that our hands are a little bit tied We don't give away Indian data to western researchers That reaction is there for a reason and it came from how they were treated for decades It causes significant risk to us in the context of where new viruses come from We know that new variants of Ebola don't crop up on the Harvard Medical School campus in Boston They don't crop up on the campus of Oxford in the UK They tend to crop up in places that are off the beaten path that are former colonies places like Botswana I mean it's great to have someone from Oxford or the excellent Christian Anderson from the script's research center help us understand evolutionary theory of these viruses And there's definitely a place for westerners to chime in But we do have to give credit where it's due We really do If you want to keep seeing these data it's just critical There's hundreds of stories where people and former colonies or poorer countries were in essence totally disregarded and swept aside both in the scientific literature and the media coverage And it's literally writing their names out of history And it's really sad and destructive thing And I think in the pandemic it couldn't be clearer that there's a real cost and risk And that you can count in human lives I mean imagine if we didn't know about We didn't have GSA We didn't have secluded lawyer We didn't have Julio Diana Vera We didn't have Alan sang in Hong Kong Moderna and bio intact would be two or three weeks behind and updating their vaccines Those are two or three weeks slower that we're going to have shots in arms of the most vulnerable people even in our rich countries that they've been so selfishly successful at protecting So should be in our enlightened self interest to address this problem starting at by acknowledging the people who do the work Jeremy thank you so much Thank you for having me on Jeremy Camille is associate Professor of microbiology and.

"My God That's most of it's a small world As you hear from African nations specifically South Africa saying that they feel like they are being discriminated against that they're being punished for making sure that their science is up to date and for making sure that they can detect new variants President of South Africa Cyril ramaphosa The only thing that prohibition on travel will do is to further damage the economies of the affected countries and undermine their ability to respond to And also to recover from the pandemic Some outlets didn't even credit the researchers in Hong Kong Botswana and South Africa who detected and shared the news about a crime The very first reports in the news that came out were in The Guardian and newsweek and they failed to mention any of the names of the researchers who discovered the variant who did the work sequencing the viruses collecting patient samples Jeremy Camille is associate Professor of microbiology and immunology at Louisiana state university health Shreveport They failed to.

Will We Ever Know the Truth About the Wuhan Virus?
"We're back on America first one on one with my friend Gordon Chang. We have to mention because it is back in the news again, Gordon. Wuhan, the coronavirus. Now there's even talk of the dnieper virus being involved in one shape or another. My take as somebody who's worked in a post communist nation for 15 years whose parents escaped a communist nation, as long as there is a communist party in China running that dictatorship, we will never ever know the truth. Unless, of course, there is a high level defector that brings the goods out. We condemn to just constantly hear the prevarications and the propaganda or do you think at some point we will find out whether or not it was artificially created whether or not it was a leak or a weaponization. What's your prognosis? Yeah, I think we will eventually find out said, but it'll take a little while, and it's precisely for the reason you said. You know, we have had some very brave Chinese souls actually put themselves at risk to come tell us what happened. Like doctor Lee mignon, who fled from Hong Kong after being threatened. You know, we have heard these voices. But the other thing, of course, is that this virus leaves a trail. And for instance, there are unusual combinations of amino acids like the double CGG sequence, which does not occur in nature. Only occurs after genes placing. So we're getting a pretty clear picture about where this came from. And I'm sure that within a couple of years, we will have even more. But there's one thing we know said, a 100% that regardless of where this disease came from. Xi Jinping took decisions that deliberately spread this virus beyond China's borders. He's lied about contagiousness and while locking down his own country, he forced other countries to accept rivals from China without restrictions without quarantines. That's what spread this

The company has more than three hundred million dollars in debt and has warned about default. It has a eighty three million dollar payments due on thursday for a march. Twenty twenty two bond according to reuters and this is leading to concerns of a domino effect as this would have an effect on other china and hong kong property developers and a systemic effect on the rest of the economy.

"Kong permanent resident and you commit a crime outside the hong kong s the. I think that insults everybody in this session but to just add to that. It's not what happens in the session and unfortunately it could be everything that we might have said. Thirty years ago or what we might have said in a classroom. Or what is the the really quick. Go back under non-retroactivity. Unless we really stop. You know that truck. From rolling over everyone. I want to say. We only have fifteen minutes left. And i want to emphasize that most dentists and sharon have written many things that are eye-opening in highly informative about this subject and apropos of yesterday's hearing of the us china economic and security review commission I've just read before the program before teen age single-spaced testimony submitted by michael davis. That is there another admirable analysis. What's taking place and if you're new to the game that's wonderful place to start to but let's get the next question august. We'll take the next question from don clark. Please accept the on mute now. Prompt pie this actually just to answer jerry's question about a liability and there's an interesting kind of story there because when the national security law i came out of course everybody was asking this very question. What about you know. Foreigners non hong kong residents non-citizens who outside of hong kong You know make remarks You know allegedly promoting hong kong independence and the hong kong government put out a video featuring very charming young woman. Who said everybody's asking this question are known in. Are foreigners going to be reliable and You know this is the worst. You don't need to worry as long as you don't say anything. Subverting hong kong independence you're not liable. So they made very clear. Yeah the answer is yes. Non hong kong citizens outside of kong. Saying something that offends the hong kong government. You are liable so i think even passing through hong kong airport is probably not a wise idea. Thank or don. If i may just add that if you have commemorated the june fourth tenement massacring you could be charged for subversion which is what's happening to the leader of the hong kong alliance group done. I'm relying on the fact that i'll get a suspended sentence because find older..
"hong kong" Discussed on The World Next Week
"Now i think that if if you know. China on today is the prediction for hong house future. I think that proposition holds largely fruity stays. So businesses need to understand that national security could apply to financial sector. It could apply to a key. Piece of technology could apply to a supply chain touching on the food. Chain of all of china will Cultural products that regarded as essential such as pork or it could apply to the cultural sector of rule you know censorship of films etc and i think that if they use article forty seven of the national security of all stop and start using it in civil disputes that could have a profound effect on the risks that will be faced by international businesses and also financial institutions. And it would create a level playing field in favor of you know if you have a civil disputes against the state owned conglomerate or aprc on gummer like walkway over assay a dispute over a the intellectual property rights sulfate very sensitive technological ip rights. For example you could be looking at national security issues that would stem right out of the the book off statutes in china that touched on relevant subjects and also applied through the national security committee in hong kong. The national security committee committee decisions are amenable to judicial review. So you can't go complaining to a court of law in hong kong. This decision is in in violation of and back and if you have a disputes Businesses disputes appear conglomerates. They could use the national security law in their favor and Effectively from everything else. I'm so i think the national security risk will creep into The the business and civil side. And i've actually Written a paper on this which shows published with harvard Two months ago touching on exactly this aspect. Because i think a lot of people Focus on criminal political side of the national security law but the civil and commercial side needs to be looked at as well. So you can just google. You'll find any question that you just email me off. Line the concept of the dual state which emerged from the study of the nazi. Legal system doesn't apply as neatly as people would like it to to the mainland legal system in china it's much messier than that. I've been involved for over two decades three decades. And this and i can tell you. There are many civil and commercial disputes. That are not decided by independent courts. That are not decided by the law that the judges simply wait to be told what to do by political legal committee of the party. And if that's the future of hong kong it's not gonna be neat that all this is a commercial case therefore will get on his decision. This is not a commercial case. Very hard to tell. What's the sensitive case. And who has the connections liberace who has the political access. And that's the way too many not all but too many cases in china of importance our processes. Sean think jerry. I just wanted to follow up that the The disregard of decisions by independent bodies is not just the human rights area and that into international law the seas in tribunals if if the authorities don't like the decision they'll ignore that as well and i think that's that's not a good thing so it's it's not that clear that there is an economic realm and then there's this political realm The other thing is that this discussion now of china's I'm finding related to elvis question to. Dennis is socialism with chinese characteristics. And now this is growing discussion of china's market capitalism. These are nonsense terms. It is not a market system and it. That's an oxymoron. That when you have a state-dominated sector in which the not only the state owned enterprises a lot of top down economic directors. And and. that's manipulating an intervening in the market. is is just fairly ridiculous to even use the term not to mention the fact that markets require transparency accessed information to assess risks. And the whole you know the the problem of access to information china is we all know this but alvin your question what it would take if i had the answer to that. Would i be this frustrated person doing this work but three decades. I clearly don't have the answer in what it would take. But i do want to share that There was a hearing of very very interesting hearing yesterday. by the us china securing siri a commission economic commission and the the panel. That was fascinating was the panel of business. Experts and one of the experts whose firm advises businesses in china made these comments. He said he was so frustrated. After all these decades of advising business a how ignorant were of the risks be how even when advised on the risks. Listen to his advice anyway. So i think that this notion of disregard of risk But there are real tools. And so i wanna say is not about just listening to policy experts. It's that in the policy-making circle and in the economic circle there's this incredible disregard of risk assessment risk management and due diligence and. I made this argument You can get at the. Us ale website Piece i did on the eu china comprehensive agreement on investment. I mean that's the kind of decision making policy decision making that governments are making where the eu for it's greed and hopefully what will happen from the comprehensive agreement notwithstanding that it they're not necessarily going to benefit Did a human rights impact assessment in two thousand sixteen. What is so significant about that. Twenty sixteen is before twenty seventy and that would be before she can think came cushing lingo and his thought became an into the constitution. The state constitute the party constitution and Leader for life. So if you do a risk assessment before those major changes on the mainland and then in december twenty twenty press forward to Approved in principle the agreement. You haven't done your due diligence. Because you think you're gonna benefit so greatly. So i think that i don't know what it would take but what i still advocate. Is that every sector needs to engage an honest painful frank. Comprehensive risk assessment and that risk assessment must include identification of human rights risks to operations to their staff to the people and not on a short term investment horizon. Because that's what produced thousand eight. It's not trying to just benefit now in this administration for years or in this quarter of the finances the need to look at risk in a long-term Timeframe because the chinese leaders are not looking at short term. They are playing a very long game beyond twenty forty seven and that's why they're able to manage a lot of this predict a lot of it though in the end. I think we'll see who is left standing but If i can just say jerry on the The question about role of farming judges the uk haussa. Konitz has engaged in only the way in which i guess you hausa. Comments can engage in this passionate yelling screaming just passionate debate that uk the british judges should withdraw that they should not be pot and contribute to the legitimacy. And i think that's an important part of it and And for of your question. Are we all in potential violation of the national security law. Are we all in collusion. While those of us who are hong kong permanent residents. I think still me and still you. Dennis anyone else. We probably you know who commits defense outside the hong kong the are i think we are now outside or you're.

"It's a misleading of the public. And i want to hear what our experts say. The third question. I have is. We haven't mentioned the most recent development. Which is the effort by the government through writing a letter to a civic organization to insist that it reveal all its records going back decades. Its membership its finances foreign funds. It's received and i thought this law is not applicable as jared has emphasize it's not to be retroactive. But what should the defense do in these cases so they three issues. I'd love to hear some brief comments and then we regret audience. I'd like to talk to them so we need brief answers area. I'll i'll try to answer question. Two and free briefly You ask what is the roll off. The foreign nonpermanent judges in hong kong. And i agree with you that what i think. The question is what are they. Actually doing going to hong kong. First of all they will not be allowed to hear national security related cases. Because i'm in under the era of a patriots administrating hong kong okay Do you think they would regard. These foreign judges stayed being. Beijing asked patriots of china. That's ludicrous to say that. The british or australian judge will be regarded as a patriot. fit to administer hong kong especially when it comes to these national security cases so these judges will not be allowed to hear a national security cases. Where the rule of law is under most severe attack. they would have nothing to do with those cases. That's number one number two is. How much do these judges really understand. What's happening on the ground. go up to hong kong. Maybe one or two months per year. They lift than mandarin oriental with driver. And you know they go in and out of the court of final appeal building here a few cases which is across the street from there. A mandarin oriental sweet How much do they really know what's happening in hong kong on the round. They have no say over matches slight judicial promotion. They have no say over. Mattis of how cases assign damn no say over. Who gets to be on the list off national security judge it's Designated by the chief executive they have no say over traditional resources and funding from the government and they have no say over firstly every aspect which is important to the rule of law and judicial independence or they have. I'm sure is the chief justice tapping them on the shoulder. Say look just believe me. They're still the rule of law and judicial independence in hong kong much of assurance. Could that be Amedee's charges of very clever and smart people. I'm sure they can see for You know where the problems of the hong kong legal system and they just blind to it or simply doesn't care what just paying lip service. I don't know but you're jerry i mean. How much role can they play. I'm not saying that. They are not sincere in wanting to help. Hong kong uphold his roof lull but there comes a point where they are lending their name for the false legitimacy off a failed system..

"The wolf characterization not mine beijing itself admitted it was the wolf and so did hong kong essay our government when it arrested a hong kong Social worker who published a book showing sheep and wolves so somebody was the wolf. So what's to be done. All of the actions that have been done. The the the the negative. The pew charitable trust it a june twenty twenty one survey showing that most of the public that have high negative perceptions of china and had percentages between seventy five sixty eighty six percent who viewed that china was not respecting the rights of his people. This was june twenty twenty one all of the statements of concern and condemnation by governments and ios international experts. All of this has not really slowed down the crackdown. So let me offer to quick suggestions. One is let's take article four and five seriously. use it or lose it. We cannot afford to throw the baby out with the bathwater and we cannot just simply dismiss a tool with the simple dismissal and For our participants who has spent decades working on legal reform in the mainland. I am inspired that. No one is giving up legal reform. Notwithstanding ninety nine percent plus conviction rate of the criminal legal system nevertheless we still persist and legal reform. So let us not dismiss article foreign five because of the imperfections of a un or international human rights system. The second suggestion are wanna say is that we need to maintain attention to the cases underway. It is complex overlap. Many of the thousands for the alab cases from two thousand nineteen or overlapping with the twelve. As well as the forty seven. So i think we really need to maintain attention to this. What happens to them. Democracy dies in darkness but the protection of the rights of the people in custody cannot also disappear into a black hole and this requires all of us to be paying. Attention are specific platforms. Perhaps jerry we can talk about and that is that could be deployed like the olympics. Twenty twenty two a hong kong upcoming iccpr review at the un and etc. But i i look forward to the discussion. And because there's quite a rich and diverse depths of expertise and i look forward to the passions and discussions. We've heard a second very powerful than comprehensive statement. I'd like to begin the discussion by five o'clock. A we have a few minutes for my own immediate questions In listening to these wonderful talks it seemed to me. there are three other issues. I'd like to hear more about first of all and this is a matter of concern to all of us taking art here is. Are we by holding this meeting in violation of the national security law hong kong. We haven't focused yet on the overseas. Reach that the pr. See the hong kong government claims to have in exercising jurisdiction of what we say outside of hong kong. We're not chinese nationals..

"Collusion and other crimes are going back. Like in the case of jimmy lai back to twenty nineteen and then he in case of the hong kong alliance back three decades. I mean that is retroactive. So these are really serious. Legal issues of retroactive application. And the reason i raise it is i have been rather Concerned as a human rights lawyer by the way in which retro-activity has been raised and many of these discussions and then moves on as the other than that. Mrs lincoln. did you enjoy the show. Kind of segue. And i just don't understand how we don't pause. Stop dead right there and say whoa wait. What about richard activity. So let me let me say my conclusion before. I have to address germany's what's to be done. I don't think that it's so much mainland of human rights as the you know the p especially now since twenty seventeen under siege in pinks leadership is doing exactly what it says it would do and not what it promised to the hongkong people and to the international community if we the the assault on civil society media education sector the trade union sector and rule of law reflects clearly beijing's deployment of its full arsenal of social control tools in the service of a clear national agenda. And on that. I would say there's no vagueness no hiding the ball. And it's the rejuvenation of the chinese nation at all costs and the preservation of power by ccp as the prime directive and all of these developments were as to underscore dennis's poi- not only related to hong kong. They were all signaled. They were all signal if there had been the political will or the desire to read the signals in every single mainland law not only the national security law counterterrorism law the cyber-security law and all the regulations for example the regulations regarding newspapers which clearly said no news can be posted and opinions were considered news. Unless vetted and published i in an official outlet. No foreigners can serve as an editor and a chinese sector etc so all of this was already signaled and many of these laws had specific provisions which specifically said hong kong s. a. r. and macau were included in the scope of those earlier mainland laws. And they also in some of them included. Taiwan and said this law applies the on gong mccowan taiwan so this whole implementation structure. The appointment trusted mainlanders. The delegation to the chief.

A lot of people asking me. Is there still judicial independence in hong kong. Might answer is not look judicial independence. You cannot just look at superficial things like oh you know whether the judges was someone will call the judge on sunday night to say that case on monday morning. I expect you to the course. We know those kind of things won't happen doesn't happen in in such a to fashion when you look at tradition depend you need to look at the institution news. Look at the whole system a holistic. And i'll just say this. That judges have been told the chief justice when he visited beijing last month. A couple of months ago have been told that he is expected to implement the patriots. Patriots administering hong kong principle. And what we what. What we understand is of course. Patriotism is fine by by the central government.

A Look Back at the 2001 Film 'In the Mood for Love'
"Let's get to that review of in the mood for love the sixth and final film our world of car marathon. This marathon has been inspired by wong's recent restoration of seven of his best known films. All of which are included in the criterion collection's new world of car. Kawhi box set. Thankfully these are also available. They're currently streaming on the criterion channel. Right now in the mood for love debuted at the two thousand canned film festival where it was nominated for the palm door and start tony. Leon won the fess best-actor prize. It opened here in the states in march two thousand one to pretty universal critical acclaim. But maybe this is something we can talk a little bit about josh. My feeling is that its reputation has only grown over the last twenty years for example back at the end of the last decade in late. Two thousand nine. The guardian had in the mood for love as it's forty eighth best film of the decade fast forward ten years later for a best films of the twenty first century list mood and moved up all the way to number five and then in two thousand sixteen. The bbc pulled over a hundred critics for a best movies of the twentieth century. Lists and in the mood for love landed at number two right behind no real surprise to me. My beloved mulholland drive from director david lynch and other films that is probably only grown in esteem over the years quickly. The plot it set in early nineteen sixties hong kong sort of picks up where days of being wild left off josh. It's part of an informal trilogy with that film and wong's later film twenty forty six. Tony leon and maggie cheung our neighbors in a cramped boardinghouse. They're both married. They're both lonely and they soon realized that their spouses are having an affair with each other. Leon chung bond over this betrayal and eventually do get quite close but never act on their feelings for each other this being a one car y movie after

That seriously endangers national security i. They came for the protesters and activists who ground hong kong to a halt in two thousand nineteen. Then they came for the media outlets such as the pro-democracy newspaper apple daily and its outspoken owner. Jimmy lai now. It seems the authorities have their sights set on the city's storied organized labor outfits a few weeks ago chinese state media called the city's largest teacher's union a poisonous huma that had to be eliminated and hours later. We sold the hong kong education bureau. Say it would no longer recognize the union of around one hundred thousand members or about eighty percent of the city's teaches swollen wong as a china correspondent for the economist. So then the union tried to mollify the government it cut ties with several pro democracy organizations in hong kong as well as education international which is a global group of teachers unions it also announced it would form and you working group to try to promote chinese history and culture among teachers and students but despite these compromises the union still declared it was disbanding on august tenth and it sounds as if that's not the only union that's been targeted no in july we saw five liters of speech therapists union also arrested so they had published three allegorical picture books for children about sheep protecting the village from wolves and the police accused them of writing stories that incited hatred of the government on top of this over the past euro. So we've seen three of the city's top trade union leaders arrested and that really has been deeply chilling to the labor movement. More broadly this is all part of a broader crushing of civil society in hong kong.

Our version of the story is when people rise up and you have a mass movement. You know We that's that's how democracy starts how that's freedom flourishes and around the world. That story has not gone the way that we think it. Should you know if you talk about the arab spring you know There's other examples around the world. I think this is. This is one of them it.

That's the joints decoration. Promised tonkin people would be able to hong kong. And that's essentially also gave rise to this hong kong democracy movement while the future is going to be written by us and so in the mid one thousand nine hundred eighty s there was also this flourishing of civil society and political groups trying to really rice the future because they signed a british joins decoration would have to be turned into a a basic law hongkongers mini-constitution but promulgated by beijing only. I should note start to hong kong by the time. Enjoy a lot of freedoms but it's not quite democracy. So this is why why the emergence of a democracy movement really stimulated by this british joins decoration. It's not a lot of people were saying. You know the British shoot london. You're so hypocritic. Now you keep talking about democracy but you get really give hong kong people democracy. I wants to add that every step of the way. Whenever britain on the to introduce some measure of democracy to hong kong beijing object so immediately in the mid eighties hong kong people were mobilizing to try to get democracy because people already understood at the time that the freedoms and rice that punk and people were enjoying time with not really be protected without some octopussy so the united kingdom began to introduce representative government in hong kong but then beijing objected.

Let's hear now from Samuel to who campaign for this and who is the founder, managing director. Of the Hong Kong Democracy Counselor Washington D. C based non profit organization dedicated to promoting democracy and human rights in Hong Kong summer. Thanks for joining us this morning, I'm sure you are pretty happy man. At the moment. But why has the White House made this decision now? Well, thank you for having me and yes, I think we're delighted. And, uh, and celebrating for many Hong Kong as you are here in the U. S already that will receive this benefit immediately. Um, I think there are a couple of things that have to become the minded. The crackdown in Hong Kong has been unfolding now for two years. Right in plain sight. And so I think that to send people back to force people to return, many of whom would face certain arrests and prosecution. Is simply inhumane and unacceptable. So then you would you have liked it to be longer than 18 months because it's not going to change the situation in 18 months. Is it in Hong Kong? Yeah, I think that the 18 months is a fairly standard practice, you know for US government in terms of protecting temporary status, providing temporary status for folks who can't return to their home country. And I want to point out that this is a renewable 18 months by the order of the president, and I believe that you know the situation continues and it warranted. I think that the administration will continue this protection for Hong Kongers. Do you think we could see

I didn't do infrastructure work but my firm did and i can tell you that. All of the economically justifiable projects in the world were being handled by the private sector.

Sophia Yan Discusses the Challenges of Producing 'Hong Kong Silenced'
"You just wrapped working on hong kong silence which really sits at the center of a lot of very hot topics china just how challenging was that production to pull the yellow one of the biggest challenges that we faced was in figuring out how we can best protect the people that we were interviewing there is there is apparently technology now where you can unscramble voice distortion and you can figure out what somebody actually sounded like. And so in our efforts to try to protect these people were trying to figure out how to master voice in a way that they wouldn't then later be identified because not all of them were willing to use their real name. Many of them were still in hong kong and with national security law. This was a law that had come in a little over a year ago. Criminalising really any active dissents that the government. The chinese government didn't like it criminalizes. Very broad buckets subversions session terrorism peugeot. Anything that the government thinks is basically not okay And so these people are still in hong kong that we were speaking to a really at risk if they were to be identified at risk of being arrested and then possibly charged with this new law under this new law and so we were trying to make sure that we were able to protect them and so finding them was already tough because of course they were worried about being so much out in the open as speaking about these very personal issues and really their political views and then secondly we were trying to figure out how best then to deal with the audio so they were issues for instance in where we restoring the files. Especially for me locally. I'm based in beijing. And so i generally think devices are compromised by the state. I think probably pretty much all hacked So where we were storing files how i was sending them securely over to our h q. In london and also then what we would do with voice and so in the end we decided in all cases were the people had to be anonymous that we would then use a voice actor to then read the lines that we wanted and so it changed a little bit because it just sound more professional. You can tell that it's a an actor reading it. Sometimes i mean obviously in character and we were able to find people with an accent cantonese. Accent for instance reading in english and in some cases we needed that anyway because of the translation because we interview people in candidates so we needed the translation into english but even still just ground all of these little nuances and how best to deal with. The situation took quite a while to ensure that we could then tell these people who agreed to speak with us that we couldn't that we had done our best to make sure that they couldn't be identified later

I know that when we talked about it you immediately told me what you wanted. Yeah get the same thing. I've eaten there so many times. I think I've eaten half at least half. The menu tried it so I love the spicy Dan with peanut sauce. And this time I got an extra peanut sauce. Okay with his other opposite of what your problem is.
