Google joins a group of major tech companies in pushing back against Hong Kong’s new security law

"Welcome to today's edition of the briefing with me, Andrew Malone when China imposed a new, security law on Hong Kong it doubtless understood that they would be widespread anger, and perhaps even actual consequences and calculated that the cost to his one it could meet. The bill has now begun to arrive. Several giants have announced that they will pause cooperation with any requests for user data from Hong, Kong police including such behemoths as telegram, Google twitter, facebook and WHATSAPP in a perhaps more dramatic development, voguish video up. TIKTOK has indicated that it will stop operations in Hong Kong, entirely one join with more from Hong Kong by Monaco's Hong. Kong Bureau chief chambers. Joins first of all I was intrigued by this announcement that they would pose cooperation with Hong. Kong's police. Do we know what kind of cooperation was underway before? We don't know exactly and it was quite funny that one of the APPS you didn't mention signal said they would stop cooperating. If only they they'd started cooperating in the first place, and they said they don't hold any data, so they wouldn't have any to handover. So We're not quite sure what kind of data the Hong Kong. Police Force has been requesting from these companies in the past. And what they've said is that they're going to pause any cooperation. In to assess what I guess, what this security bill means, and what what it means if they do handover this kind of data to the police I mean. Loads of people use WHATSAPP and that's. That's got end to end encryption so It's not clear what kind of information you know. Facebook, the owner of what's up. What's sense of what the tech giant's trying to figure out here? Are they acting out of genuine concern at what China is doing, or is this an attempt I guess especially in talks case to be perceived as being on the right side. I think that you could say that that being on the fence right now because they're in the same position as most of us in Hong Kong. We don't really still know what this law. Requires them what it involves. It's a very. Very thin piece of legislation for something as dramatic as a as a national security law in we're talking thirty odd pages and sixty six articles. And in those articles require the the Hong Kong government set up certain bodies, and then those bodies and need to pass certain implementation rules to bring this into being now. Those are starting to come out, so we're starting to see what this might mean. And so one of those rules came out yesterday, which says know police can. Search a premises without a warrant. If it's to do with his National Security Law which has got obviously alarming for a lot of people. So. Companies like facebook and Google that they just waiting to see. What this actually means. And so they don't want to be seen to be handing over. Information right now to the government. If that's going to lead to prosecutions, and as you said, that would definitely leave, leave them on the wrong side of of public opinion at at least outside of China all the tech giant's also concerned with trying to balance that against the prospect of upsetting Beijing. Well know they're all banned in China. The the one tech giant that. Is Absent from that list is apple, and that's the one tech giant that is allowed to operate inside of mainland China. So. This is not a matter of them, not wanting to upset Beijing I think this is more a matter than not wanting to upset bag global audience. Because obviously this. This whole thing has been huge news around the world. And these tech giants have nothing to lose in terms of upsetting. Beijing so I definitely seem see, this is holding onto all pleasing that their audience around the world, and at the end of the day Hong. Kong is a city of seven and a half million people whereas you know, these companies have hundreds of millions of users around the world so. As as we kind of seeing Hong, Kong might just just find bearing the brunt of a lot of these things. You said earlier that you and everybody else in Hong. Kong was still trying to figure out precisely what this new security law is going to mean. Have you noticed that having any direct effect on day to day life already whether that's been in actual implementation or manifestations of at all in reaction to it in terms of protest demonstration etc.. There's been zero protests. I mean this. This seems to be one of those piece of legislation that has. Is having more of an impact. On People's. Minds and their conversations rather than any big physical changes, there'd be no protests, but for the majority of this year because of covid nineteen and they're still not allowed to go ahead. Because of the covid nineteen restrictions, so we'll, we'll have to wait and see if if when those get raised and police, perhaps do grant authority for. Illegal. Protest Rally with huge numbers of people will turn out, but as of today, and since the law came into effect this time almost on last week. It's been very normal on the streets in Hong Kong. Everyone's been going about their business. But there I mean been just news coming out every day. That's just causing more and more alarm like the the the libraries taking books off the shelves to to see whether they fall foul of this security bill and this latest news today that that Tiktok the is is pulling out of Hong, Kong, and pulling its APP off of the APP store. Even, though that's I, that's a bit of a red herring because it is after Chinese. Company and I imagine this is more a corporate strategy than than anything else it does. Continue to to raise alarm bells here, but when you when you go out on the streets. It's it's very. It's like Hong Kong in two thousand eighteen. You know before before all the protests last year, so it appears very normal, but I think the damage being done here is very much in people's minds James Chime busy now Hong Kong Bureau. Thanks for joining us. You're listening to the briefing on monocle twenty. Four.

"hong kong police force" Discussed on Policy Matters

"Lot of people who are afraid of being extradited. There's a Ben. Publishers Writers who've written things about the Chinese leadership and the Chinese government has grabbed them sometimes overseas and had them set back to mainland China and Basically force them to admit put them in put them in prison. So people a rightly worried about this and the protests than kind of escalated very quickly with a young people and older people earning out and basically the five demands that have come emerged from all of this Is that first of all. They need to withdraw the extradition bill. Hasn't that been already been withdrawn for the longest time the governor said I will withdraw. I will drop it people. Just there's zero credibility for for it and then a few months ago she said I will withdraw it then. Finally she's okay. We're actually going to withdraw. They just said we're GonNa let it die but they never actually the former withdrew it so that part has actually been fulfilled and the other the other ones are that there needs to be a retraction of the riot characterization Russian so in British law system that still exists in in Hong Kong. A protester will get a lighter sentence but a rioter gets a much much heavier sentence for many a years as opposed to. Just you know you're too and this is what students in particular found out after the two thousand and fourteen protests was that the government would characterize these people as rioters. There's and try and put them in prison for longer. And so after the first protests the first big millions of people protesting in Hong Kong this year after extradition extradition bill. The government very quickly moved to say these are all rioters. Okay which really up the stakes on the part of the government and the the hostility back from the protesters they also said. The third demand would be releasing exonerate all the arrested protesters and now we're into hundreds of thousands of people have actually been arrested. They also argued that we need to establish an independent commission of inquiry into police conduct and use of force during the protests and this demand actually refers to what what now looking back on it were fairly mild protests and police going way beyond the norm and the Hong Kong Police Force was viewed popularly in East Asia as a very a professional police force but at this point in time after many months the abuse going on the violence going on from the police force or directed at the a police force by protesters today is on a daily basis. There's throwing Molotov cocktails and the parts of protesters. Police are just beating up people including innocent people walking by you can go on youtube and you can find video of this going on. And the commission that exists to look at. It is underneath the police and they've determined that nothing bad has happened and so finally. The other thing is the resignation of Carrie. Lam and the implementation of universal suffrage for the Legislative Council and Chief AH executive elections so basically to introduce actual democracy. which wasn't something promised under the original deal with China under nineteen ninety-seven but it should also be noted that they're not they're only thing people are asking for in Hong Kong? It's the same thing that exists in the Chinese countryside direct elections for your local leaders eaters so at the Chinese countryside. You actually have this Chinese cities. No Chinese Communist Party doesn't trust people in cities to actually vote for its Communist Party. What are the odds of the Hong Kong government and its masters in Beijing accepting these? It seems very unlikely that they will And especially that things have now accelerated to the point that there has been a marked slowdown in the economy Hong Kong depends a lot on tourism. The protests having moved onto campuses is a sign that they're willing to escalate the the government is willing to escalate the conflict too much greater degree and they they've consistently recently kept pushing the protesters back into a corner. You keep getting older people turning out including these Christian groups professional groups literally thousands of accounts. It's have turned out to protest when the heart of the central business district and so there is still widespread popular support and public polling. That goes on shows. Just the either the the Approval rating of the governor and the government is at rock. Bottom lows Steve. How is that trump administration responded to the ongoing going Disturbances the trump administration up until recently was basically saying that this is something that can be worked out between Xi Jingping Jingping and the protesters and Donald Trump famously said Xi Jinping protesters can work this out which You know the Hong Kong government the central government in China instantly denounced and say no no. No that's not how it works and we don't talk to protesters okay but it's also been. It seems to be clear that this is the trump administration. Donald Trump particular has seemed to view that this is some type of bargaining chip in the trade. War seems to be that president. Trump will say yes You know we do support these kind of freedoms and the secretary of state very recently said that That we need to support freedom and the rights of Hong Kongers but a lot of details about what that actually might mean in the only people. Who've really I think come out very strongly have been members of Congress you you know in particular Senator Rubio and actually Senator Cruz? I've been very strong. Denounce say they've traveled to Hong Kong and the protesters have been quite happy to see. See this and I would say that if there's any real action going on it's unlikely to come from President Trump himself given what he said it's more likely to come from Republicans Publican's And then endemic backed up by Democrats. Nancy Pelosi has has done the same thing. Quick question don't don't these denunciations play straight into Beijing's narrative live a foreign involvement and foreign support for the demonstrators in Hong Kong. Sure sure and I suppose in that sense and you either believe that this is an American color revolution or you. Don't you know There's any number of people on social media and by the way this is the the protest which is covered very much live in front of the cameras and is very high tech. Protesters are using all kinds of encryption. Borrowed Sim cards at any number of things to kind of evade control by from Beijing and they also attack a lot of institutions from mainland China China in Hong Kong banks but also anything related to surveillance. CCTV things like that. And so it's clear that there's there's a concern that that that if they don't stand up now they're gonNA lose forever. We'll watch the odds of winning the odds of winning. I actually don't know I think it probably depends ends upon a lot of them. What does Beijing actually think about this And then also. How far are the leaders in Hong Kong willing to go a lot of people in the United States has speculated related that while they'll just send in the piel you know thinking back to nineteen eighty nine at the army? Yeah the the People's Liberation Army the think tanks going into Beijing in nineteen eighty nine but in fact there's already seven thousand troops that have been stationed in Hong Kong since Nineteen ninety-seven. They're in their barracks are scattered throughout the territories Tories. The Hong Kong Police Force has about thirty thousand people as an enormously large police force and a very professional well trained one in that regard and so the Hong Kong authorities authorities have said repeatedly that they don't need any help you know in doing this. Mainland's media have also kind of implied that mainland China China is is preparing just across the border people's armed police force not the p. l. a. but the kind of like the militia Just across the border ready to intervene intervene. But it's also worth noting that China has had a downturn in the economy especially in terms of exports and that area of China typically shunned John and the area around it have all kinds of factories from foxconn factories to other ones that make all kinds of goods that we use them buying the west and they bring in hundreds of thousands of workers from the poor interior of China. And it's very common that When a company goes bankrupt and China they don't end up paying being their workers right and so you know if a Foxconn factory for example were to just suddenly shut in China not pay its workers some of them have several hundred thousand workers? You know so. You could literally have hundreds of thousands of workers rioting protesting to get their wages and in fact that's what the People's armed police force across the border in Shenzhen recently been training against so it's a twofold purpose it kind of kind of a veiled threat against Hong Kong but it's also they know that as a downturn in the economy could provoke protests mainland China itself.

What are you hearing well. Ah this is this is not going to be the the final word on this issue. <hes> at the rally yesterday already announcing the the next few marches watches <hes> so it's going to continue for for some time yet and of course they're likely to be <hes> more clashes <hes> because you know yesterday. There wasn't many confrontations between protesters and police. I think both sides wanted to take a step back and try to keep a lid on its <hes> this weekend but but of course this issue is not going going to go away. The hong kong government housing responded. It hasn't <hes> said it's going to meet any of the <hes> the five two moms and actually on the basis of of what we said yesterday at the rally <hes> the protesters are adding to to what they want their calls yesterday for not only the chief executive carolina to step down but now they won't be just as secretary and the head of the police force so you know the longer the the hong kong government weights don't do anything the more the participant the demand and just finally james. What is the latest from china then we have seen segment of reports or join according demonstrators terrorists sent troops seem seemed to be ready and waiting at the border. Is there a fear showing accused move in well. I think that that fear has subsided <hes> this weekend <hes> of course in the interest of being fair and bonds we should mention that's on on saturday.

"Today. I'm joing the hong kong special administrative rich and government delivered strong condemnation regarding sunday's illegal protests a city which saw rioters attacking police the government spokesperson said they will bring those illegal protesters to justice the increasingly violent demonstrations of pushed the city to what what the government calls an extremely dangerous edge and government officials are outraged by such behaviour for more earlier had a talk with the turbo our current affairs commentator so victoria first of all. Could you tell us more about what exactly happened on sunday well four for sunday. It is very unfortunate that chaos and rioting and disturbances continued in hong kong and a ah there have been many cases of south house and also more alarmingly have being <hes> attacks on the police as well as throwing rolling of <hes> kotov fi at the police officers <hes> resulting in injury of police officers and this is really <hes> very serious and a major change in the nature of some of these riotings on the other hand. I think the hong on complement do the right thing. <hes> the <hes> condemned such violence and <hes> the spokesperson of the hong kong police force. It's also said that anyone attending such illegal gathering is actually guilty of hong kong crime and need to be dealt with as such a from the rest of china from mainland perspective. I think we forty could such continuation of violence lynne's than chaos and disturbance in hong kong and we want to urge the hong kong government and the hong kong police supposed to do whatever they can to bring the situation. She'll paxton normalcy to restore order and to restore rule of law and to bring those <hes> guti off <hes> attacking police and creating such social all the to justice.

"Year. It's especially because it's the seventieth donovan <hes> and they're all these kind of <hes> training training going on in shenzhen across the border where chinese police are preparing to deal with the protests. <hes> an and beijing won't want these these <hes> these anniversary this big birthday to be <hes> disrupted by protests but it's you know it's interesting. We're in we're in. It's still early. Middle of august and people are talking started talk about october so they're preparing for this to go on one thing that really it leaves. Beijing painted into a corner is the fact that the last time there were scaled protest on this scale. It was chinaman thirty years ago and no no one knows how many people died in that massacre the moment that china ratchets up not just the rhetoric then threatens to send in the military. How does that start to change things. It's funny how it always happens like this. You know it's the it's also the the thirtieth anniversary of the gentleman massacres. This is a big year for china terms of anniversaries and they're very cautious about about <hes> you know keeping protests on the mainland under wraps this year <hes> but obviously they can't control hong kong as they found out <hes>. I think that's what everybody in. Hong kong is waiting to see <hes> there's a lot of talk about if and when the <hes> the the p. pele or or the army or the police will from china will get involved <hes> but <hes> you know as we all know if if the chinese army does does go onto the streets in hong hongkong than that does change everything <hes> hong kong is seen as a city enjoys a special status it <hes> is seen as is largely autonomous from china <hes> <hes> and and that that plays into a lot of the the the economic business benefits that there are in hong kong <hes> the u._s. is talking about <hes> reviewing doing the special status that it gives hong kong because you know it's not sure whether it's still enjoys the same level of autonomy now if the chinese army are on the streets then <hes> there'll be a lot of countries a lot of international <hes> countries who review how they treat hong kong and obviously for <hes> for people living in hong kong that will certainly be a game changer indeed i mean is there any expectation that this will happen. There have been threats by beijing but any sign of violence on the straights meted out by the military would immediately get rid of the one-country-two-systems idea and also as you say the rest of the world would sink. I don't really want to deal with these people anymore. They would would actually hong kong's financial value to them at lea- override what could be seen on the streets. I think clearly the beijing chinese showing a bit of restraint <hes> you know they haven't they haven't rushed in with the army. It's it's obviously this. This is what what they want to do. <hes> hong kong even though it's not as important as it once was <hes> you know it's still very valuable to them. Especially as as china wants to paint itself out as responsible kind of global partner <hes> who can show show leadership on things like globalization globalization is a big thing for <hes> president teaching thing and <hes> if a ah gay stakes suffocate their <hes> their their symbol of globalization then then he doesn't really have a leg to stand on <hes> and so the the indications are right now is that they're going to kind of give more powers to the hong kong police force <hes> you could say any restraint so all the kind of training wheels mike mike come off and they were going to be much more forceful in how they clamp down on these protests and how they prosecute protesters an interesting move recently they actually called out of retirement tyrant's <hes> this <hes> deputy police chief who who oversaw the occupy protests in two thousand fourteen <hes> so i you know he's got a reputation for for being a bit of a strong arm so he's been brought back now <hes> and so i guess what we might see is that they're going to be a bit more <hes>. They're already using not a gas. Yes <hes> i imagine that it's all going to get a bit more <hes> physical <hes> from police and they they from their point. They might not use as much restraint tim chambers..
