"Kids or parents you'll remember Disney's Mulan the animated film from Nineteen Ninety Eight is based on Chinese legend.

Hong Kong marks handover anniversary under shadow of security law

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

"Where does it leave the pro democracy movement in Hong Kong. Given that the likes of Joshua Wong Agnes Chow has pretty much, uh, cut ties with the political groups. Yeah, well, Joshua Wong and others of the de Macedo party resigned their top positions and then disbanded the party late yesterday after the imposition of this national security law. The indication is that they did not want to as the figureheads of the party possibly implicate others in the movement. So perhaps it will go more underground. The last Twitter post that I saw from Joshua Wong. Last night he recited a passage from the Bible from Psalms about walking through the valley, etcetera, etcetera, which is often times Used in eulogies. So obviously the pro democracy camp here is figuring out what they can do. Is it game over? I've asked pro democracy lawmakers and pro democracy activists like Emily Lau is this game over and they said No, it's not game over. That was before the law was implemented, but we didn't know that it was coming down the pike. Still, I think there's a lot of reassessment of strategy going forward right now. But this law is very firm. If you're going to violate any those laws on national security, the law of the land will come down hard on you. Right, Chief North Asia correspondent.

Hong Kong to withdraw divisive extradition bill after months of protests

"After months of protests in Hong Kong the territory's chief executive Carrie lam announced today that she is withdrawing the controversial extradition bill that set off the protests in the first place she made this announcement in a video address the government will formally withdraw the bill in order to fully allay public concerns. Emily Fang is following the story from Beijing Hey Emily hi so this is a big turnaround how much of a surprise is it is it is a big surprise especially given recent reporting that Carrie lam was actually not in control over who made the final decision on whether to withdraw the bill all of a sudden today her press office released this video saying that they wanted to stop the violence and restore rule of law and social order in Hong Kong in the video that you just played lamb said the Hong Kong to become an unfamiliar place for her as part as it got more violent and she was finding a way for it to establish common dialog well this makes me very curious what you just said makes me curious about Carrie lambs motive and whether or not this was an order given to her by China China has a tremendous amount of pull in Hong Kong they've been very upset about these protests do we get the sense that someone told her to do this. we have no independent confirmation that that was the case Reuters came out with a report earlier this week though with an audio recording from lamb herself and what she seems to insinuate that she wanted to resign but Beijing told her not to and that Beijing is the one calling the shots behind extradition built not hurt now that's interesting you just got back from Hong Kong you were reporting on some of the most violent street protests do you get the impression based on the people that you've talked to who were out in the streets that this is going to end the protest movement once and for all which is what China really once. no it won't protest will almost certainly go for it they may not be as violent as they were last weekend but the issue is that protests protesters have been calling for five demands not one last and one of those demands certainly was withdrawal of the expedition bill that was also the easiest demand to meet they're also asking for independent police inquiry into brutality from protests from from police against protesters pressing for direct elections they're asking that all criminal charges be dropped against protesters have been arrested and among those four other remaining charges began extradition they'll carry lance said in the video today that she would appoints two new members to an existing police inquiry body but that she would not honor the request for an independent body and she definitely could not withdraw criminal charges against protesters who were arrested because that would be breaking the rule of law so the protesters have gotten some of what they want and they have not gotten everything that they want that they want do you think the protestors are dug in at this point enough to continue on in a in a vain that's become violent over the past couple of weeks. protesters have been communicating over things like telegram the encrypted social media messaging app and over other various internet forums and one of the most commonly circulated responses to carrion's video today has been this is too little too late in fact one of the messages that has gone viral has been if Carrie lam withdraws immediately organized a peaceful protest Joshua Wong who is a very famous Hong Kong pro democracy activist tweeted today that Kerry lands actions to withdraw the bill are close too little too late her response comes after seven lives sacrificed in twelve hundred protesters arrested so there's still a lot of momentum from protesters to bring their grievances out into the street and to their four remaining demands interesting though still calling for peaceful protests I wonder if only do you have a sense of what China's next move is if the protests do continue I mean a concession has been given. will come out in the streets anyway does does China have a move here. over the weekend when protests got more violent Chinese state media which is controlled by the Communist Party in China the separately push to lamb to push a ticket to approve what's called the emergency ordinance regulation the British colonial law that lets lamb as chief executive pass any role she thinks is in the public interest and so that would give her more a stronger legal tool to shut down the messaging apps that protesters have been using to organize and dot more draconian methods to stop protesters so that something Beijing has been pushing carry them to do and it's something that she has on the table and she said last week that that's something that she is
