"NPR. It's morning edition from NPR News. I'm Noelle King and I'm Steve Inskeep. We have an early idea how China will impose a national security law on Hong Kong because police there have already made their first arrests. Thousands of Hong Kong residents were pro testing on Wednesday to commemorate the handover to Chinese rule. It was the anniversary of the date when Hong Kong was handed over to China People protest against this new law, which lets Beijing prosecute crimes it deems related to national security. NPR's Emily Fang is covering the story from Beijing, either Emily in mourning, Steve. What were people arrested for It's not entirely clear. Police told us only that six men and four women were arrested under this new law for crimes that had just come into existence. The night before. Police told us that one of thes people arrested was a 15 year old girl. Another person was arrested because he was shown waving a pro independence flags of advocating for what Beijing consider secessionist behavior and they were marching as largely peaceful demonstrators to commemorate as you said, the handover of Hong Kong to Chinese rule, and they came out despite these very heavy legal penalties. That the national Security Law prescribes up to life in prison. If Beijing wanted these 10 people they've arrested could be tried and made in China by a Chinese court, according to Chinese laws. We don't know how they'll prosecute these 10 people yet. Is this one good way to summarize part of this law? Hong Kong, Unlike the rest of China has had free speech or at least freer speech than the rest of China. They still haven't except whenever Beijing thinks that that speech is threatening is that a fair summary and when it touches upon national security Okay, And they are people looking for ways to get around this new law. They are, and the main one seems to be leaving Hong Kong completely Many, many people I talked to are considering immigration. They're looking at Taiwan, which is close by shares a similar culture and has said that it will take more Hong Kongers as long term residents. Australia said today that it's looking into offering special visas for Hong Kong ER's and American legislation passed last year might make it easier for Hong Kongers to apply for temporary visas in the US Most notably the United Kingdom, which used to govern Hong Kong is offering a pass towards citizenship for most Hong Kongers who were born before July 1st 1997. That's in Hong Kong. Went back to Chinese rule. Up to three million Hong Kongers could qualify for this. And in general, you're seeing more home Congress trying to choose between freedom of expression and just simple freedom. They're deleting their public social media accounts on Twitter, their self censoring And I've noticed today that many people are adding me on encrypted chat accounts, so they're moving onto encrypted platforms instead. You know, it's amazing to hear talk of immigration. A lot of people in Hong Kong are in Hong Kong today because their parents or grandparents fled communist China to set up there, and now you're telling me people I have to flee on again. How is China, responding? Their defiant They are very clear that they will push towards total control over Hong Kong, regardless of what the international community thinks. I went to a government presser yesterday in which they said we will not be cowed by Western countries and China has already threatened retaliation if the UK goes through with offering Hong Kongers a citizenship path. They argue This is an interference with our internal affairs because Hong Kong is a part of China. Emily, Thanks for the update..

"A very interesting day for Hong Kong, China, describing Hong Kong's new security law as a sword of damage, please hanging over its most strident critics. In other words, China is very pleased about it. Not quite clear exactly what Hong Kong residents think about it. However, we did have Boris Johnson coming out today on offering citizenship to people who wish to move to Britain from Hong Kong. It's of course, former Colony. Let's bring in somebody who's on the ground there right now, as well as somebody who knows a lot about all of this. Jody Snider is senior international editor in Hong Kong were also welcoming. Andy Brown, editorial director for Bloomberg New Economy, Jody's. The details of the law came out last night, about 35 pages. Have residents managed to do just exactly what's in it. And could you give us bullet points? Yeah, So this is, of course, very historic, and it's coming on. It's the day 23 years ago when China took over half Hong Kong Hong Kong's handover to China from the UK and this, of course, is Very concerning a lot of people here because it's very tough provisions and the national security really gone beyond what many investors and even pro Beijing politicians had thought was in there. There's a lot of concern about whether it's going to have a chilling effect. Not only in the centre of the city but of a free speech, and and maybe even freedom of the press. Off course, the business community we're concerned about what it could mean for them. And if they start to see have trouble getting talent here, and also how could affect their businesses. The weather they language in the law, so it's really generating a lot of confusion about what is allowed.

Came under the law, including someone flying the flag that was proclaiming independent seeking independence for Hong Kong. Andrew. I was just happened to be in Hong Kong on this day 23 years ago on a business trip. Remember the handover clearly, and I remember thinking to myself. This is just no way This is going to end well for the folks of Hong Kong. China is going to assert full control. Over Hong Kong. It's just a matter of time. I'm actually quite surprised. It's taken this long. What's the feeling? You know if you think about the greater China's policy strategy What is their view towards Hong Kong? Do you think Well, pull I I was in Hong Kong that day two on DH. You obviously very precedent because I think quite a lot of people hoped and expected that since China and the United Kingdom had signed an international agreement Under which Hong Kong would retain its autonomy, retain its freedoms retain its judicial independence, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and so on that this would continue as promised for 50 years on DH. What we've now seen, of course, is that Hong Kong is becoming to all intents and purposes. Another Chinese city. It's going to lose its international personality on DH. The trend is very clear. Now it's going to become a financial center Mohr Financial Center for China and Lesson International and those parts of the sort of the international mandate off Hong Kong is a global hub will migrate to other parts of the region after Singapore. Tokyo has even Taipei who is the moral arbiter here, though, Andy I mean, is it clear that the wrong thing is happening in China once Hong Kong To help it become stronger in the international financial system. For example, isn't it doing the right thing for its citizens? This is a It is a sort of damage, please. Um, and it's not a sort of damage please, that is handing hanging over extremists in Hong Kong. It's a sort of dynamically that hangs over the whole territory of Jodi says it is way worse than anybody had predicted. Not just in the fact that you know you have full knew. Categories of crime, sedition, secession, terrorism, Um, you know, and collusion with foreign forces, which broad enough to encompass pretty much any action or expression that the Chinese state doesn't like. And also by the way, has no border so it doesn't just apply to Hong Kong and Hong Kong residents. It applies to actions and two people anywhere in the world. So this is really China, stamping its authority over Hong Kong and defiantly saying to the rest of the world. We don't care what your reaction is. Judy, What do you expect the reaction to be from the folks on the ground? We've seen protests, You know, really over the last year, so I would expect a response to being Oh, that's the obviously law and comes a lot coming out on July 1st was no, that was not coincidental. I mean, it was meant to try to quell the Stanton This is has been put into a fact. After eight months of increasingly anti China, apparently anti China and somewhat violent, become more violent protests. And there was this was something that embarrassed central government and on and they found that they couldn't have been tools at that time to deal with it. Then you had the pandemic and think Church stopped. So they were. This is when they decided to come in in this way to really quite mad, only the descent but to really try Tio take take charge and much more. On a much more significant way. Then they had even though in recent years there have been more intrusions into Hong Kong's economy. Ah, so at this point, the question is just you know how to companies. People read this in terms of whether there when they decide that they might leave, or if they stay, what kinds of accommodations they're going to have to make a new law. And that's really the question is where we are.

Or is it too late to way to like Around 5 to 10 years near that eyes that everything to lay. Unlike many Hong Kongers, Marco is not considering moving to Taiwan. Taiwan has offered to take in some Hong Kong. It also is an electoral democracy and has vowed to defend its liberal order against Beijing. For now, for now is good. But who knows? 10 or 15 years way that was going on it. So Marco is looking farther afield to Canada or the U. S. One amid a potential exodus of Hong Kongers looking for a new home. Emily Fang.

"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.

"I found a having covered the handover I found it fascinating to go back so many years later and so I probably five or six trips over a period of two three months, and what was interesting is there were a lot of students, but there were a lot of ordinary Hong Kong people who? Had to develop a certain political identity. They didn't see themselves as mainland Chinese, they didn't see themselves as. People who lived under the government of the Chinese? Communist Party? They have a very separate identity and very separate values. I'm going I. Talk to people in Hong Kong I. It's talking to people in the mainland I would say they have very little. In common, the conversations are different. The values are different, and that's part of a a lot of this conflict is over identity. So the Chinese Communist, party is very worried about holding the country together as people have become so much more wealthy, more sophisticated greater expectations because of the growth as well as their own travel in education overseas, and what it feels it has to do on its periphery is to break. Other identities say that's what they're doing. Everybody in Hong Kong knows that they want to turn Hong Kong into just another southern city in China. I mean it's interesting of course. China is a country of many many identities. Well not from the Party's perspective, so let's look at the periphery because I think it's very good to look at the periphery of China. Understand where the Communist Party is coming from what are their greatest fears? and. Let's watch what they've done in Tibet. There was a period of time a number of years ago, where monks relating themselves on fire because of the repression, and they put monasteries cities on lockdown and I gotta say this is very different from what I was there in the nineties. I mean in the nineties in Beijing. Yes, it's an authoritarian country, but it was pretty free wheeling, and you could talk to a lot of people about a lot of topics and people were not scared..

Hong Kong is part of China and Hong Kong. People don't like aging. Well you guys. There's something wrong with you guys. So most of the mainland Chinese they really supports Beijing's position on Hong Kong. The thing is in the years after the handover more more mainland. Chinese people came to work in Hong Kong and the more that happened. The more Hong Kongers were like. Wow we are truly not the same. We've spent over a century living under different governments different economies and different cultures. And they mourn wanted to assert their own identity even more which frustrated China to no end and you also have the Chinese government and people in China increasingly fitting that autism Hong Kong.

The government of Hong Kong introduced an amendment to article twenty three commonly known as the national security. Bill it was essentially an anti-subversion long that many Hong Kongers saw as a threat. They're civil liberties for the first time. After nine hundred thousand nine again you had half a million people marching in streaks Hong Kong to protest against the article. Twenty three naturally shoot. It was the largest protests in Hong Kong since the tnn massacre and it worked. China shelled the bill indefinitely but then regrouped and came back even harder around twenty twelve eight demand from Chinese governments that on contra changes educational curriculums and Mick.

The symbol of a mass demonstration underway in Hong Kong students and young people formed the umbrella movement a series of sit in protests that oppose. Beijing's decision to have more say in control over Hong Kong's electoral system. Hundreds of thousands packed the streets of downtown Hong Kong as police fired as many as eighty seven cans of tear gas determine demonstrators shielding themselves with umbrellas and spawning the so-called umbrella and in the last three or four years you even have some of them beginning to talk about maybe we need to look at south determination because Hong Kong is a Chinese colony will never be allowed to have democracy and those words of self determination and independence caught the ears of Beijing. Red-light Fash Hoar Cross Beijing.

These promises in has been trying to really encroach into Hong Kong controlling Hong Kong Roy Moore eroding autonomy. So all of those have been really God. Hong Kong's young people to feel that they have no future that has really tricker this assistance from young people and at the same time. We also want to understand that. This trend has been increasing over time and it just fall from the sky. Now you're talking about a younger generation of people in Hong Kong who feel that they must now stand up and fight for the core values of Hong Kong. The kind of languished using you said if we don't fight we may not have a chance to fight for Hong Kong's caught Banu any longer so we will now make our last stand. We may all four but we have four.

Great Britain weren't doing so well so brin decided that in order to compete with China they needed to trade the Chinese something that would fly off the shelves. They got the idea of selling opium to China and that's then completely turn be tree balance in the opposite direction. Great for Britain but it came at a cost for China. And there were F- was in China because opium is being this attitude and it got many people's sake and the court. The court decided that they had to do something about it. This is Victoria Timber Highway. She's a political scientist at the University of Notre Dame. I'm from Hong Kong gripping Hong Kong had demanded breath in Hong Kong So then I've been talking a lot about Hong Kong leads LE- back to the trade war. The opium that was coming into China was a problem because it was hurting their society and economic progress so they retaliated by confiscating over one thousand tons of opium. Britain was outraged and demanded that China pay for those drugs and the ruling power at this time. The Ching Empire refused and then that trigger the first opium and Britain invaded. China was the most powerful Empire East Asia but its military was still no match for Great Britain so after three years of fighting. China asked for a truce that was concluded by Detroit City of Nanjing in eighteen forty two. This is Steve Sang Professor Studies and Director of these source China Institute you at the School of Oriental and African Studies University of London. One of Britain's demands this peace treaty was for China to hand over one of its territories. The small little known undeveloped island called Hong Kong. It was a collection of a number of fishing villages a little bit of farming and also a place that pirates of the News as base for the publishing was very small. Maybe just several thousand people because of this the Ching Empire didn't consider the island all that important but the UK saw the benefits. Hong Kong Island had a natural harbor which offered the Western power a strong eastern trade base and also as kind of this gateway to the rest of Asia as row. Pitching Empire wasn't thrilled about handing anything over to Britain. But they figured if it had to be something it might as well be Hong Kong the Bris wanted to have a just a whole pile of barren rocks so whatever this pile of barren rocks was given to Britain in eighteen forty two which was the first of three handoffs slowly but surely gave the British all the tiny islands and surrounding territories that we know today as Hong Kong geography of the Hong Kong colony consists basically of three areas.

They do work in a son of Gong they were thinking about legacy. This is despite the title King Kong guys. Tears ears already forming in my eyes but in the beginning here what they're trying to tell you is and I think it's a hard concept to grasp guess in nineteen seventy six. What we saw? How was not fatal? Does anyone remember baby. Fae Leg Faye from the first King Kong Movie Note Baby Fae. She was a big headline. She was the first person to receive a baboon heart transplant in nineteen eighty-four. You know this is not ring. Any Bells Ernie. nope don't recall this but yeah baby fae pay showed medical technology leaning to the idea that Simeon and human could exchange hearts. The truth of the matter is the shock was I thought she was still L. among us but the child holding live twenty days so it wasn't like it was a medical miracle but they certainly sold it like this was going to be the way we dealt with cardiac problems problems in the future. What I do remember in the mid eighties because my father was a cardiologist? Not a surgeon but several surgeons in his practice was the the invention of the artificial hearts and my father's involvement in the first artificial heart transplants. In Our city. Really Yeah Your Dad. He did that no he's not a surgeon. Father was the medical doctor who worked with the patient before and after the surgery. Because if you've ever had surgery surgeons like to cut and then leave you cut him in Louisville Okay Yeah. Nineteen eighty. Three is the first one. Barney Clark is his name. He was a sixty one year old. Dentist and again my sense was like yeah. We did this amazing thing. We built a mechanical heart and it replaces organic cart and he lived one hundred twelve days like did it get better like I don't feel like anybody does this anymore. It just it's an invention that went away. Your Dad didn't keep doing this right. This was a fad. They still do it. And eight eighty five percents of transplant. Patients return to work or other activities they previously enjoyed and seventy five percent of them. Live at least five five years. That's a long way since my memory of I believe it was robocop. Two with the Honda Suzuki. You choose your heart so all this. This is happening in the early eighties. And even though it wasn't a huge lease on life at that time you could see why a screenwriter would think. This is the answer. Kong fell off the building thing. We heard his heart thumping to stop but if we get him a new heart. Hey there it is. That's a stupid idea. The Dude was shot with eighty million. Bullets it's a heartrending. Also fell off the world trade center his bones or be that as it may Ronald Schuss. It thought that this would be an idea that they could use camp that they would have to tweak this but take what was going on and modern medical science and kind of satirize it here with King Kong and so he wrote it with with the idea that it would be funny and then had the further idea that Khan would also need a blood transfusion and would get that from a lady call. He is right. This is funny when you think think about it. It doesn't play funny but he's got the right instinct to make a camp not funny. Ha Ha funny ridiculous. No it was funny. Ha when the page and then Dino I said that's it it's brilliance. It lasts. They will cry. I will make them cry again. She he really wants us to cry during this us doesn't he yes. Dido didn't understand that this stupid no thought that this was completely normal and that we would again. He had the same tragic story. Worry line set up for his sequel. I'm not going to outright say Gino was high on drugs but I will say this is the same year he hired Stephen King to do. Maximum overdrive Dino's crazy. I mean everyone that works with them. We'll tell you that it's why so. Many people didn't come back to this. Jeff Bridges a very funny story about how dino you know came up to him at the end of the shooting is like Jeff Jeff Jeff I got two words for you to jeff is like Oh yeah I got you the words were you do. I mean nobody was coming Jessica. Lang was like there's no way I'm getting back into that. Animatronic can't again and getting pinched pinched hurt and Dido's response was good. The first scene of the new movie will be you being eaten. The one thing I'll give this artificial heart thing is in attempting getting to make our tears flow the seventies and it worked on me as a kid. We didn't discuss it but the sound of that. Heartbeat you hear the heart of Cong- and it drowns out all other sound until we get to here doin scream and agony of the pain of loss while we hear is a heart stopping and so I suppose if you were watching that and like how do you pick up your last thing you see of calm or the last impression you have. Gong is his giant thudding heart. But no I don't know if you guys are familiar with Terry Chevaux that legal case from a few years back. Yes they vote Khong I I is that I don't know via civil rights where he could demand to be pulled off life support. He's just an animal. Hold on now. According to King Kong vs Godzilla. What about calling civil rights Japan's more progressive than us? No yeah if this had been made in the nineties he's it probably would have had lawyers arguing these things. The John Grisham era but right now it's very convenient and again. They had money that got pulled. Where they we're going to restate and they were going to walk you through how the was actually lifted out of this kept alive and brought to Atlanta which by the way is nowhere near New York City?

It takes ten years to build a heart who built the breathing tube when they get that. Just find some conduit from an electrical company and shove it up his nose. That's my question you you get this. I guess the head of the institute he's like this artificial hardest seven million dollars as a taking them that ten years do they have to like fundraising as a GIG. Grants and seven million is actually cheap for that many researchers for a full decade. I mean how much are they making sure like way. More than seven million was spent developing the real artificial heart like yeah. I did see that much to me but keep in mind these jokes. These jokes that the screenwriter wrote that the people that got the script didn't get and because they didn't get everyone in. This movie never cracks a smile. It's kind of amazing how straight everyone plays this. If I saw my career going with this movie the I wouldn't smile either. I definitely think that there's a way to make this work. I definitely think you could take this script again. Flash Gordon had a sense of fun and some of those people knew what movie they were in play into it. You know tongue poking out of your cheek there but no. They look miserable when I Linda Hamilton here. She is furious right yes. She's so deadly serious film and couldn't believe it like Terminator. was that a one thousand. Nine hundred eighty four. Did she have expectations to become a big star. After that. I think she had expectations and she does. I mean she's the only one to emerge from any of this unscathed. She's the only one that has a career after this Phil. Yeah I mean it. It was an eighty million dollar hit. I mean you could argue. She maybe wasn't the thing that people wanted to see next. It was kind of Arnold's movie but yeah I wouldn't say unscathed. She was kind of scathed scathed until Cameron brought her back for the sequel beauty and the beast ran on. CBS and that was a modest hit. I didn't like it. People don't understand this. That was a huge ego. Blow if you were a movie star and had to take a television role. No Yeah. She's a B movie actress. But she's better than this. I mean this is really the drags rags and she feels it and when these actors were done nobody would show them the footage they were told. Go on television promote this movie. We have no money for ADS and and she in the main actor were like. Why would I tell people on? TV to go. See it if I haven't seen it and they're like we don't have the film finished yet and they're like it. Opens opens next week. That is just the norm in Hollywood today. I think you promote your films without ever seeing them but you at least bring a clip right like go on there and and then Johnny Carson Turns and you see twenty seconds of it. They wouldn't even give up that it wouldn't give them any footage because they knew if you saw anything in this movie you would be less likely to watch it and so I just have to presume like this was a really painful experience for most of the people on here and including her I actually there are things you could have shown me. That would make me more excited for this film specifically Kong's break out of the institute when we get there that that would've been clipped to show on Carson. That would have gotten me in theaters. Those special affects in one thousand nine hundred eighty six two years after ghostbusters. Back to the future. Sure you kidding..

"kong" Discussed on The Economist: The Intelligence

"Today Hong Kong released its latest. GDP result and as expected. It doesn't look good. The city it has been facing a range of economic and political challenges over the past year and its fortunes are strongly tied to those of the mainland so as China's trade war with America has crimped growth there. It's squeezed Hong Kong's exports yet last year. The big threat to Hong Kong's economy appeared to be a political a bill allowing extradition of Hong Kong to the mainland sparked enormous protests and worries that the mainland would put them down violently now. A new threat is compounding all these pressures. The Corona virus outbreak across the border. Connie was already in a great deal of trouble. Simon Cox is our emerging markets editor and is based in Hong Kong. Figures released today. Show the shrank by two point. Nine percent sent in the last three months of two thousand nineteen compared with the same period of twenty eighteen that follows a quarter of contraction before that and this recession John reflects two big factors. And what factors are they so Hong Kong's economy has been going through a year of tribulation. The trade will clearly hit on conches major industries and then on top of that we had the protests stoppage in June and have continued even to the present day peaking really in the last quarter if twenty-nine to clean November when violent clashes ended up with virtual siege of a couple of universities. Here including one quite close to where I live which caused the shutdown of one of the major tunnels running under Victoria Harbour for two weeks. Hong Kong's Economy Hong Kong itself was founded on free trade. So it's it's extremely dependent on the free movement of goods but also people a lot of local employment depends on tourism particularly visitors from the mainland and those visits have been dramatically curtailed by the protests. And they will be dramatically curtailed by the virus we saw back in November which is one of the worst months for the protests tests that the number of visitors to Hong Kong dropped by about fifty six percent. That's the worst drop since the size outbreak in two thousand and three many people Using his appointive comparison the current virus those industries in particular now face an even deeper winter to quote the Finance Secretary Pole Chen and and those have been damaged to sentiment. People feel less like going out for an evening at a bar or restaurant if they fail getting tig asked on the way home and that damage sentiment is often the most severe aspect of these sorts of troubles and quite often people can find a way around the supply cups. You can find it. Alternative road when alternative tip tunnel under the harbour if people don't feel like spending and is very digital businesses can do and so from from your perspective the protests and the hit two sentiment will continue so the damage to economic sentiment is clearly going to continue protests have been somewhat clips and transformed by the krona virus. People obviously less willing to cool Kohl for mass gatherings given the fears of contagion but sort of anger and distrust that the protests reflected continued. And it's taken a new form now. People don't think the Hong Kong government is doing enough to prevent transmission of the virus in particular. People are very angry that the border with mainland China has not been completely shut it. It has been restricted quite severely. But it hasn't been completely closed off an in addition they're angry because there's a shortage of surgical masks the evidence for the efficacy of mosques this is somewhat limited but nonetheless people seized on this as a measure they can take. Unfortunately there's been a shortage and you can see long queues. Even this lunchtime I went to a nearby by department store is a queue of over one hundred people waiting for mosques. Many people have been waiting so long. They'd taken a shopping baskets. Turn them upside down sitting on them for more comfortable comfortable weight and the GDP data out today. Don't even take into account the coming hit from the corona virus. What's your view on how that will add to the existing pressures so the current vice will make things worse? Some people have been hoping for recovery in the New Year because the protests seem to have simmered down a bit there was some evidence of people resuming normal life or that has now been dashed. The latest forecast I've seen for example. UBS Bank think that Hong Kong GDP could shrink by over six percent percent. This quarter compared with the first quarter of nineteen so an even deeper recession and Hong Kong economy might rebound once the virus contained. We've seen that in the past with things like saws that there's some pent-up demand so you do see a rebound but that's never enough to offset all the damage and obviously Hong Kong's economy is is is intimately tied to to that of the mainland. How has the the virus affected? The Chinese mainland economy so far so economic forecasts have been slashing their predictions for China's growth. I saw one prediction today that the virus would knock two percentage points off its growth in the first quarter of this year compared with the same quarter last year costs. Despite the warriors building over the past week or two that wasn't reflected in the stock markets which were closed for the Chinese New Year holiday until this morning and then we saw them tank by about nine percent. Wuhan is quite important. Auto manufacturing hub. The China of moral concern is the spread of the virus to other provinces. That are an even more important part of China's economy and of course you know the government has been quite Jacobean and imposing a quarantine measures that whatever. Their effectiveness in controlling virus will certainly have a fairly dramatic economic impact. Listen short short term. China does have this gold of which sets out years ago with doubling the size of its economy between ten and twenty twenty. It had seemed to be on track for that goal. The damage this virus might cause to grow share. Could put that golden doubt for that reason and others it may will try and goose economy towards the end of the year stimulate not to make up lost ground but again this is something that can for short the damage but not completely offset it so it seems that the economic pressures on in Hong Kong are are only going up here. I mean where. Where does Hong Kong go from? Here what do you see in the sort of medium and longer term so I think the inputting Hong Kong is to try and rebuild the relationship between the government and the governed unfortunately this crisis which could have brought people together seems to have only sewn divisions further. It's very important in a public health. Emergency government it has credibility the government has to make difficult calculations about to what extent to close off the border which would damage the economy toward extent. It's worth suffering that economic comic damage in order to control the virus and people here don't think those judgments being made in the interests of Hong Kong loan. They still think the Hong Kong government is doing the bidding of Beijing. Now that may or may not be true these judgments so as very difficult but we've seen for example people trying to disrupt the rail link between Hong Kong and the mainland throwing items onto the tracks. None of that is going to help the border question. For Hong Kong in global global economy terms the border future for Hong Kong in the eyes of international investors depends on it security and safety as a financial hub. There I I think the virus is a blessed concern. This isn't a homegrown problem. It's something that many parts of the world are facing and in Singapore has more confirmed cases of this virus than Hong Kong so whereas the protests reflected very much domestic weaknesses. The virus is obviously something that transcends Hong Kong and so I don't think it necessarily will further jeopardize its status as an international financial hub. Thank you very much time. Thank you my pleasure..

"I. He's like he can scrap scrapped just like his old man minutes later and he's like not a patch on your old man. I'm actually GONNA reverse my opinion but that is okay. It is okay that he is not a ferocious beast. That scares everybody. If he's a cuddly goofy character that no one respects and he has to earn respect with the help of Denham that feels those like the comedy redemption story that they could make and they only halfway get two. I've just left wondering what if they hadn't gotten to the island right at that moment. It's a save from the quicksand totally different movie or what if the natives didn't kick them off I mean the reason they found Congress because they couldn't land where the village was the natives didn't want them there they had to go go to another place so yes a lot of contrivances to get to this point the fact that they split up the fact that denim is like. I'm going to go look around and I'm thinking why. Why would you do that? You're in this unknown place that you know has giant monsters. No you're gonNA leave like your Captain Kirk or something but then Hilda's going to tag along you said state. Stay close to you. I feel like we get an answer to every question you guys are asking the screenwriter puts it right in there who climbed quicksand the lady tears offer for dress and puts a bandage wrapped around his middle finger to say even. This tape is telling us I'm not gonNA give you none of it. None of it and so we have is some very sloppy scenes of dim falling in love with this girl by the Campfire. While this thing is photo bombing and spying on them and yeah the other guys are hiding in a crevice from special effects of another movie that was abandoned and and eventually they're going to figure out there's a temple on the mountain that has an amulet sort of somehow that can be considered the treasure enough to pay off all the lawsuits for New New York. Though I mean no you're going to go back to that island that they were on and just by everything to King yes. Why not stay here? I guess maybe it was possible. Denham could find his this place on this island. Like maybe he would live with the villagers rebuild. I mean I guess I see a more Utopian. If this movie is going to be lighter in comedy I kinda want to laugh and have a good time at the end. We don't need to go to the same tragic fall for calm right. He can live. He can participate in the rebuilding. That would've been away to go. That would have been more interesting. I think there's a lot of things that would have been more interesting but I understand the thought of sequels especially shortly before the days of video is give the audience. The same beats television. arnie not before video before television. Yes and you're right. It is what you do when you don't you know what else to do. You hit the notes. You already did that. You know elicited their reactions you want to get so all of a sudden for reasons. We have a climax where sea serpent is coming out and the whole place is falling. Yeah there was an earthquake that shook the camera and again. It's like you guys arrived at just the wrong moment although thank God you arrived when you did imagine if you'd road there one day later the whole argument is going on but we're kind of here at the climax and it's like not only only has not been satisfying in the same way but they will not go back to New York. There will be third act to the story. This is the end of the film. I don't feel like I know Kiko enough like he's kind of just goofy clumsy giant gorilla. But I don't have any feelings for him like I did with King Kong where I saw that more more is a tragedy year. Just here's this goofy animal and he's going to die with all the rest of the animals on this seeking island. I feel that they let the human story Goto. We focus so much on Denham and Hilda with son of calm. I mean that's finally we're at the main attraction here you've been waiting for the titular son of Kong. You get him. But there's three other humans on the island including the cook but I lose track of all of that and when he'll takes the amulet and goes to them and when the Hellstroem gets eaten by the monster. I'm very confused because you guys gave me a whole Lotta Shit for complaining about stop motion last time but I praise what the film did. Last time. You got to admit this stop. Motion is not succeeding in telling the story. Oh No it feels like people giving up what I feel like. I'm watching happen is hey we read seventy minutes. We can release this and if we have to have the movie out by Christmas here it is. It's almost like the the Christmas special that comes when you have a hit movie like Star Wars Hours Thinking Star Wars. You know like it's just the cheap knock off that has really nothing to do with the cultural phenomenon on you love but just cashes in at holiday time it works in that way. They delivered something that people could pay money to and say. Yeah that was son son of Kong. I'll give the movie this better than the Star Wars holiday special with all the cooking segments in the rookie. For now I may enjoy watching the Brown Ero holiday special more but as far as actual film and story this is better. Yeah but you're right as far as losing touch with. That's where you really feel like. They still could have done it. They could have made the human story. It wasn't about the production problems and all the constraints they could have had denims. Romance means something they. They could've had the Norwegian villain do something that earns a better death that we save her. You could have had the villagers working with key coup to rebuild. And you just I. You WanNa put a bow on all of these people and where they're at and instead everything literally just falls apart and Ki Ku conveniently as with everything with his ending. His foot is stuck in a crevice after the earthquake and so he goes down but he holds up denim. Yeah what does he got to hold up Denim. Does he not know how to swim is they're are going to be like a vortex that pulls down to is this I would say I don't even know why he's got a hold them up till the boat gets there. Obviously they want to emulate the tragic ending of Kong and instill leave Denham to make more sequels if the board says next Christmas or Easter or even Valentine's Day getting knocked out another month nephew of CAU-. Aw He better be able to have floaters or know how to swim. That's all I can say. There's no island left for him to live on. I just take this as a metaphor for the film. Sunk it sunk fast and it sunk Khong beast with it. Yeah and again. I almost feel like the screenwriter tongue in cheek. Kind of knew that and just kinda descend all right if if this is what you want Middle Finger. Here's what you get. Well what did we get. Jacob Stuart did you get the Middle Finger from son of Kong Jacob. Did I complain about this movie movie. Yes a lot term from with it. But I don't want it to come off harsher than it may have because I did see a little bit of a charm in this one having this goofy Kiko Oh and more of slapstick. It could've worked. I saw a film here that Coulda worked but ultimately it took too long to get to the monster and kind of as aside homework project. I've been watching some of the old Godzilla movies so when these to finally get a round of fighting you know just have some insight from the other side as well and and you know when you're making a giant monster movie you WanNa see. The giant monster smashed off. I think that's what it ultimately comes down to whether a Godzilla or King Kong film is good or bad is what does that monster get to destroy. Unfortunately here Sunday Kong doesn't get to do a whole lot. He he has an awesome fight with a giant bear that I fully endorse but other than that. He's clumsy. He gets his foot stuck and drowns and it takes in my opinion way too long to get to the main attraction of this film. So yes there are problems albums here. Yeah you might find this humorous because I definitely did see a comedy that was almost working but ultimately I can't recommend this one stewart yeah scrappy do blue jar jar. You know. Franchises are just littered with these kinds of badly conceived followups where it was never going to be as good. This son was not not set up to be as good in any way he had no support and so the surprises. The pleasant tree is. It's not as bad as I expected. I expected to hate it. I expected it to be rushed stop motion effects and to be pretty lame and it is and it's a not recommend for that. Reason is a bad movie but you know I've praised the original. Not only for. Its technical sophistication of the time but also I thought that it had interesting subtext and ideas and here. They might not abby that ambitious but I feel like there is some fun screwball comedy. I still like Denham. I like to see him in the new romantic shades. There painting them in. And Hey it's only an hour. It does US via just kind of like a bonus feature on the Kong. DVD like you could just see it as like. Oh this is some deleted scene that they didn't use thank God but it doesn't exist so we have to recommend it and I'm not going to and I'm with you jakup. I don't want to come off like this is an atrocity I actually find Kikuchi to be a cute little white monkey. I kind of like how stupid it is that they have the line. An animal knows when you're trying to help it and it won't attack you yet. Tell that to any wild animal. That is hurt that in fact the worst thing you can do is try to approach a wounded dog. You don't know not good idea but they do it and I have some fun with this movie. The in the end the problem is not enough long and shoddy shoddy storytelling whether they didn't have the footage. Our weather was poor editing or whether nobody gave a shit about the end of this film it tried to replay the beats of the last one and did so so poorly. It's definitely a not recommend for son of Kong and is that why we don't don't have grandson of this movie sync with the island You make ahead lots of plans for lots of sequels but yeah. I think we're all the same thing. This is not the worst example of nepotism at the very least Tori. Spelling is less deserving of fame. And you know I mean. They did what they had to do. A third movie was planned. They were going to take a couple of years to do it and they were GonNa get God damnit. Though Real King Kong it was called the new adventures of King Kong not as son Aunt. MANT LADY FRIEND BOOTY CALL IT's King Kong and we're not bringing him back from the dead. So what does that leave you with an inter cool. You already already commented Arnie. Last week he goes from being knocked out on the beach to being on a Broadway stage. They were going to show how they put him on in the raft and dragged him on the venture and then got caught up in. Typhoon washed ashore a new tropical island where there was an even bigger scarier are your monster. And a crew had to release com to fight that monster then recapture him to take him to New York. You think that's something that Denham would've told the press uh-huh yeah it would have been a part of the story but hey I mean again I understand all the impulses and the biggest thing facing them was fay wray.

"Colony has been existing is very different <hes> in comparison to the way that the government of mainland china has been existing. That's right so hong. Kong did get <hes> a sort of semblance or a partial political and social autonomy under this policy called one country two systems uh-huh <hes> where they became a special administrative region of china that had its autonomy and to a degree in that it had its own constitution legal system and writes like free speech as well as the freedom of assembly and if you know anything about china you know that china at large those things do not necessarily apply right right eight this happened when the two countries signed what was called the sinoe british joint declaration and the weird thing is about this it gave the residents of hong kong considerations considerations and rights that other regions and other residents did not possess there were other people and groups and communities in mainland china that that would love to have these rights. They didn't get them because they didn't have this unique historical situation and this is not to say the hong kong was already some awesome bright shiny bastion of democracy. The residents of hong kong the vast majority of them could not vote and cannot vote. They cannot elect their own leaders. Instead twelve hundred people are chosen to be what's called an election committee and those twelve hundred people elect the chief executive. Yeah who's the main governmental power there in those twelve. Hundred people are generally influential people within the society there in hong kong. We're talking everyone from administrators to teachers to <hes>. I mean just anything anyone who's prominent in their field old essentially may end up on that list now correct me if i'm wrong but doesn't the body government of china general largely consist of representatives representatives of different kinds of commercial sectors so there's a lot of sway by commercial interests in industry over government decisions in the way things things are run yeah. I think that's probably one of the major <hes> reasonings to create a system like that. Yeah it's interesting. One of kim richmond professor feser said this but a longtime ago one of my professors was telling me that if you wanted to make a sweeping generalization shen of the difference between world governments you just had to look at the primary occupation the primary job of most of the people in in government in the u._s. This professor said most politicians are lawyers but in other countries in china included a many any of the ruling individuals are engineers <hes> this professor and i had been drinking. I do not entirely recall <hes> <hes> the rest of his argument but i thought that was a was an interesting little <hes> observation to make their and regardless of how you look at it whatever the interests of those twelve hundred members may be they are not elected by the millions of people in hong hong kong. It's sort of like if we were to find out like if we were to learn who our new representatives and government would be just when the headline was published. You know what i mean like now. The representative for atlanta and the southeast region is paul mission control deck and they go yeah it does that twelve hundred thing does remind me of almost like in all craddock woo all critic <hes>. I don't know what i was gonna. Call it <hes>. It's not a dictatorship or anything like that but you do having because you do have an executive essentially but that executive was just appointed. I'm trying to figure out how to work oligarchy in there because it's not necessarily that because the rule is not by those twelve hundred people it's just they is an is it a democratic oligarchy eighty so it's called the people's republic of china but the idea of a republic being that it's democratic inherently but it's not really pure democracy the way we know it in the united states at some sort of i don't know hybrid kind of remix of it when you say but at the same time we're talking about hong kong which is functioning differently in this weird little offshoot system right but still e even though the even though hong kong residents don't have the right to directly vote..

"Oh call has seen its biggest political crisis in decades the last ten weeks natasha khan is a hong kong correspondent for the wall street journal. I've been covering the pro democracy marcy movement in hong kong since two thousand fourteen and i've been covering the current round of protests since it started. There's an unlikely trigger for these protests a murder order in taiwan. There's a couple that was from hong kong that were traveling to thailand for a trip and the boyfriend and that couple had murdered his his girlfriend allegedly he fled back to hong kong and taiwanese authorities asked for him to be taken back because hong kong. They didn't have an extradition agreement with taiwan. Authorities began to really try to push through this proposed law which would allow for hong kong the people and other suspects to be extradited to china and other countries for trial. This proposed law was really contentious because china china has a more opaque judicial system and there were concerns about human rights abuses for people who are tried in that system people in hong kong were unhappy happy with this law for one particular reason it could let china reach into hong kong a semi autonomous region and apply chinese law there baz as more and more people in hong kong society started asking for the spill to be either delayed or withdrawn and there wasn't a response of the government momentum began to build for a giant giant protests essentially on june ninth which ended up drawing an estimated one million people on the streets. It was a hot day was humid and people were waiting. I mean seriously seven hours to just walk down the streets and to make the statement that they cared that maybe the government should rethink this bill. There are people in wheelchairs are grandmothers. There were people with their families families. There was a a really broad costs action holcombe there and what happened was that i think about an hour. After the march was officially declared don the government it didn't come out and address these one million people which represents like seventh of this population but they issued a press release. This press release acknowledged the protesters concerns but said in essence that the protesters simply misunderstood the bill it also said the extradition bill would continue to move through hong kong's legislative council on june twelve and so once again people in hong kong took to the streets on on june twelfth was very tense mood and in the mid to late afternoon. Police started clearing the protesters with quite a lot of force. You know they use a lot of tear gas rubber bullets which really caused a huge reaction society here that in turn led an estimated two million people to come out the next weekend the weekend after that and the the weekend after that protesters kept coming out they have shown up in malls in hospitals and this week they shut down the airport in the scenes beans. Were were one of solidarity. Many people took the day off from work to go and support and you had people just chanting throughout the whole day just chanting sitting on the airport arrival hall chancing for the government to listen to them. You know there's a term in cantonese which is language we speak in hong kong and it's called guy and means at oil and it's really kind of like a word of encouragement to say hey like i got your back. You know you can do it and and one of the biggest chance that you'll always see now like every few days when there's a protest as people people saying hongkongers at oil you know hung out and guy out. There are a lot of things adding oil to these protests the way the protesters are organizing online the way police are responding but the driving force underneath it all has to do with this extradition bill not the bill itself but what it could mean for hong kong hong kong's leader carrie. Lam said she would suspend the bill after those early protests but she hasn't withdrawn it entirely entirely it may seem like a pretty nuance difference but protesters are worried that lamb may be serving china's interests not hong kong's from the protesters point of view if you could do this one thing and you're still not doing it. Is it because china has said they're not going withdraw the bill. It feels like there's this attention between the hong kong government and china like you have said distrust right of the hong kong government that they aren't just puppets of beijing yes and and i think that that's something that didn't happen overnight.

"In recent weeks the streets of Hong Kong have been filled by not just the biggest demonstrations in recent memory but some of the largest gatherings of people in human history they began as protests against a proposed law which would enable extradition of suspected criminals from Hong Kong to mainland China this dispute over a technicality has escalated into a standoff between Beijing and the people of Hong Kong with the government of Hong Kong occupying being a distinctly uncomfortable position in between two clearly determined entities. There were always going to be tensions in the one China Two Systems setup agreed when Hong Kong once a British colony was returned to to China in one thousand nine hundred ninety seven but despite what Beijing may have wanted or imagined Hong Kong does not appear at all reconciled to its eventual absorption into China proper sheduled to occur by two thousand and forty seven indeed among the younger Hongkongers in particular a separate identity appears to be emerging one rooted at least in part in the idea of Hong Kong as a democracy so far at least China has taken a relatively restrained approach to the demonstrations as it did to what became known as the umbrella movement of two thousand fourteen but is China's patients infinite can Hong Kong be lewd or pushed towards compromise and does Hong Kong's songs government have any say in any of this anymore.
