Hong Kong security law: What is it and is it worrying?
"24 hours after Beijing had passed its controversial security legislation. Authorities the Hong Kong had already charged 10 people with violating the sweeping new law. A new measure put severe restrictions on free expression. Beijing says the law is crucial to safeguarding Hong Kong's economic development and political stability and allows China to investigate and punish those accused of dissent. Penalties include life sentences. Los effect was immediate Twitter accounts were deleted. Pro democracy activists resigned their posts and several left the country. Li Chun Cheon is a former legislator and prominent opposition leader. He joins me now from Hong Kong, Mr Lee, Thanks for speaking with us. Hello. So, as I mentioned, several activists have disappeared from social media have ceased their pro democracy activities, and they certainly aren't talking to the press with Beijing threatening life sentences. For those that so called collude with foreign powers. I feel like I should begin this interview asking why you're taking the time to speak with us. I think it's very important to tell you well, what is happening to Hong Kong and the wording off the law is so vague that don't really know what it means. One employs collusion with a foreign power. And causing hatred to the central government. I'm not going to preach hate. I'm going to preach love only for the people of Hong Kong. How have you seen this law go into effect in terms of the way authorities are cracking down or in terms of the way that people just conduct themselves differently. They are trying to cleanse all free speech, putting fear among the people and and after you put fear, then the people began to start self censorship. So there's lots of people who tried to Cleanse or their faithful off any mentioning off the stroking that we have. During the past protest movement were now not under the Hong Kong government will have directly confronting The Chinese Communist Party because one off the provisional law is that the police has sweeping power. That is not what they used to have a new power to be operation like the secret Police. Britain has offered some Hong Kong residents safe haven. Many people have gone to Taiwan. You recently urged Congress here in the U. S to Ah pass. A bill making it easier for people in Hong Kong to seek asylum in the United States. How many people do you think we'll be looking for avenues like that over the next few months? And is that something you're thinking about? No, of course I would continue to stay in Hong Kong and continue speaking out for two people. But with the refugee proposal from any country, off course is useful that you know, people who worry about the future can go toe off other country to seek a safe harbour. But I have to remind the woe that actually They're already 9000 people arrested and 1600 already prosecuted and this is very difficult for those who are prosecuted to find a safe harbor. I think the important thing is for people to stay on in Hong Kong to continue demon and one country, two systems that are promised. We are only 23 year we still should have 27 years off, no change and also democracy. So you think there's still some hope then that the protests Khun B successful and that they can push back this this tide that has really picked up steam in recent months from China, seizing more control of Hong Kong, cracking down on on expression in Hong Kong. Of course, the situation is very difficult, you know, But when you look at is the European experience they have suffered for many years. But finally there's the Berlin Wall fell down. And so the hope is that also people in China one also democracy and freedom and joy hand together to seek for that, But off course, this regime ists now. Very powerful in terms of surveillance in terms ofthe, you know, suppression, and they're using law against people, but with the world's standing to get a Hong Kong I think we will continue our fight. We do not know when we can be. Ah, Victoria's but still I think the spirit had to be there. And we want Hong Kong to make it through the difficult time in the in the future.
