Now this is also The anniversary of the massacre in Tiananmen Square. Back in 1989. 1989 Tiananman Square. It's interesting. Because Um the what? What we've got here. His people rebelling. Against Dictatorship against communism against the totalitarian state. Think about that. What symbol do they adopt when they do that? In Tiananmen in the center of Tiananmen Square as the students were protesting You know what they had? Statue. Of The Statue of Liberty. They created their own. They created their own. Think about that. Why would they pick? I mean, if we're so terrible If we're so terrible Um Why Why would they pick that symbol? You know why? Because we're the last great hope for the world. In Hong Kong. In Hong Kong. Right now. They have People under arrest. For planning a protest. Protest. Marking the anniversary of what happened in Tiananmen Square. That's what China is doing. They're arresting the people who have organized it. China was given back Hong Kong from the British And it was with the agreement that the British Um Ask the Chinese To allow Hong Kong To have some autonomy. That has since not happened. You've seen what's been going on prior to covid what was happening there. The crackdowns and the Chinese have used the cover of Covid to crack down more on Hong Kong. They don't keep their word. You know, in a time when in this country we are discussing Colonialism, imperialism, black lives matter all of this. The Chinese Committing currently all the sins. That happened in the past in this country. And then we took great steps and blood. To reform. But in China Nope. And yet, I don't see people marching in the streets over here. About it. Oh, I see some You'll see the prime Minister of East Turkistan. And the prime minister came on this show Prime Minister in exile talking about the, um The genocide of the weaker people. And also the Kazakh ethnic minorities. You see that? Meanwhile, Meanwhile, What's happening. Nothing. Nothing over here. Nothing. When do we wake up? When do people in this country wake up and say, Hmm. Yeah. You know all that stuff we're talking about that goes on over here. Uh, it's really going on over in China. What makes me the most upset about this? Is the fact that when our secretary of state the new secretary of state under Joe Biden. Went to Alaska. For that for discussions with the Chinese. Do you know what they did? They sat there at that table. Said to us how dare you talk to us about human rights? Look what you're doing in your country. Police are going around and indiscriminately killing young black men. You have systematic racism in your country. You have white supremacy. What did they do? They were Gourgeon stated everything that the radical left in this country and they're really not the radical left anymore. Cause they're mainstream. When critical race theory is taught in elementary schools. That's not radical anymore. I mean, yes, we can classify the theory is radical. But it's mainstream as far as as far as the left is concerned, as far as the education systems are concerned, as far as corporate America is concerned. We've all got a cow tout a critical race theory. The Chinese through us right back in our faces. And yet, look at them. Look at what they're doing. They actually have concentration camps. We've heard from a woman. Who was a doctor. Who was forced to work in one of those concentration camps. As a teacher. She talked about how young healthy people were marked with a red X And that meant their organs were going to be harvesting and they disappeared. These, um Turkistan, ethnic minorities, Kazakh ethnic minorities. That's what's going on in China. We're gonna Mark um d day. The anniversary of D Day. 77th anniversary of D Day on Sunday. If I went out On the street right now. And asked 10 people under the age of 30. I'll even say 35. If D day was the right thing to do. You know that the majority of them would say, I don't really think so. Didn't I tell you about the the survey? Of young people that asked them whether or not it was reasonable for us to fight in World War two and over a third of them said No. I don't third speak Japanese. What does that third speak Japanese because they would be, uh, either Japanese or German. Um If you watch what is it? The man in the high castle is that, uh, I watched. Yeah. I watched the first two seasons on Netflix. Yes. If you believe that, you know it works under the scenario that That we lost World War two and the East Coast is run by the Germans. The West Coast is run by the Japanese and then in the middle of the country. It's kind of no man's land. That's actually how the left treats this, um, treats the country when you think about it. But That's what we're dealing with here. Today. There are people behind bars. In Hong Kong. Because they wanted to mark The anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre. With protests. They're behind bars. There will be no recognition of it in China. There will be no recognition of the dead. Those who were tortured those who ended up in work camps and were worked to death. No, there will be no recognition of it. There will be no recognition of what China is doing right now. None. But yet China will throw back in our faces. All of this self loathing. I said for a very long time in order to be a member of the left now. You have to hate this country. It is self loathing. Think about The the individuals. The those who virtue signal the white suburban women who are probably the biggest advocates for black lives matter. Defund the police all of this crap. Talk about self loathing. Like, really. You hate yourself that much. That's why you believe in the Marxist principles of black lives matter. And yet you won't say a word about China. LeBron James. The corporations, not a word, John Cena. What? A what A what A giant P word. He is. I'm so sorry. I said the Taiwan was a country It is a country John. Oh, I see. It's going to affect your so for China to take over the world.

Remembering the Tiananmen Square Crackdown
"Which came 32 years ago today, when hundreds possibly thousands, died when China's Communist Party had used the People's Liberation Army to put a bloody end to the student led pro democracy protests. 1989. The date is always a flashpoint and nowhere is this more sensitive than the restive region of Hong Kong. Already a prominent pro democracy activist, Xiao Hong Kong, has been arrested by police there for promoting unauthorized assembly. The authorities say this year's event has been banned due to covid social distancing restrictions. Hundreds of thousands of Hong Kong residents would normally packed Victoria Park in a late night vigil. The BBC's Danny Vincent has this report from Hong Kong. For more than three decades. Ivy lie has marked every anniversary of the June 4th crackdown. She keeps copies of newspaper articles from that day under her bed, she does not forget. Hong Kong is the only place on Chinese soil that officially commemorates those that died in 1989. When the Army opened fire on pro democracy protesters. It's murder. It's a bloody massacre of Tiananmen Square. This year, the police have banned an annual visual marking the day they threatened to imprison anyone who defies covid 19 restrictions. Ivy becomes emotional at the thought of not being able to attend. Activists believe the pandemic is being used as an excuse to silence dissent. That the which, over the years I think that not being able to go to Victoria Park, Hong Kong people will be very upset. Yeah.

"It turned out to be false will that was the title economy. That's established the now and as it turned out a number of the house in that cat. Cable were incorrect however he he was persuaded by because it had come from our embassy as were hundreds of thousands of other people and as i said in the book about this was roar. Intelligence and roar intelligence is always made to be corrected afterwards. Did bob regret having rid those details out. So publicly at the memorial service given that they ended up at least some of them ended up being retracted by the embassy. Not that he ever said so. We didn't talk about that. Because they the point about that was and webs he said this. The good thing that came out of that was that many. Australians i hadn't realized how dave he's humanitarian failings and compassion was suddenly realized that he was a genuine humanitarian people. I off also include the chinese extraordinary experience to say a white man crying for them. And so i went. Oh okay well. I'll try and find that cable. So we emailed the national archives and surprise surprise the cable materialized in front of us and we had it and it's this extraordinary document. Bob hawke on the radio very small amount of. He's a description of the most horrific things that happened in the lead up to the mexico as the army into beijing during the massacre and then afterwards as well as people were arrested and So we had the document. And that's and i had bled saying that it turned out not to be true. And that's when we realized that guy we're gonna story here. We started writing it up for a story to come out today but then we stumbled upon even more information about this in another bizarre way. So let's let's step back a what is it. What is a cable. How do these things come to be. And what do we know about how this particular one came to be. Okay so a cable is basically a fancy word for just a memo sint from an embassy to to another embassy or back to base so cable is basically an email accepting nelson exist nine and ninety nine but an email back to canberra from the beijing embassy from the embassy staff. Saying this is what we think happened in tiananmen square. We thought you should know. And so what do we know about how that particular cable came to be written. Yeah all. I didn't think i would find that patient information but in the process of of reporting this story I was recommended. It was recommended to me that i give a guy at the australian national university. A call richard rigby is his name. He's a professor there and a former foam department of artificial. And i think we have the recording of of what happened. Let's listen to this okay. So richard firstly essentially the the cable. Yes what did you think of it when you saw it. Well i drafted oh. I thought i needed that. Okay okay so you literally found the person who wrote the cable. Yeah so i mean do does it. How do you feel about it Thirty two years later well had do. We feel about a few days later. When the situation started to become clear it was the best information we could put together at the time and not the time being less than thirty six hours. Guess now when you say that the cable and by extension the contents of bob hawke's speech in the days after the gentleman square massacre was wrong. How wrong was it. Do think so. Richard rigby told me was basically that they had an informant inside the chinese government. Who up until that point had proven extremely reliable. The local informed hitherto entirely reliable local which we referred to in the cable and. I'm pretty sure that he was also speaking to equivalents so senior people in the british embassy at the time and he told them all the details. That bob hawke read out to the surprise of embassy officials on national television but then in the embassy couple of students who had been protesting arrived and sought asylum from the chinese government and they brought the students inside the embassy and said look. This is what we think. This is what we understand happened inside the square. We understand that there was this horrific massacre. And they're like no no. That's not really what happened at all. No actually no no none of. That's true crucial. Core thing of what happened actually in the square itself and we heard that quite quickly within a matter of days fried directly from the mouth of degen one of the leading well the guy the guy who helped negotiate the peaceful withdrawal of most of the students from the square and he was the dissident who came and was given shelter in our embassy. Will you surprised that this informant got those details about what was in what happened in the square wrong. And do you have any insight as to why that informant my got that wrong. I think that he was telling the truth. I think that he sold that. He was telling the truth right. It was the sort of stuff that a lot of other people that we were talking again. In the immediate aftermath were were saying. I cannot entirely wrote the possibility that we were being fed some sort of align because although he was as we signed the cable closely connected with quite senior people within the chinese government. The whole incident occurred because there was this very serious literally life and death power struggle going on but the highest levels of the chinese government and he of course be reflecting the views and the hopes than the fears health one particular group the group the group that lost out so that would be a a vested interest in conveying as bad a picture as possible of what the people on the other side of this past..

K. in China had already agreed that in the future nineteen ninety seven Hong Kong will be returned to Chinese rule is the idea was if protesters in Beijing could create a democratic China then democracy might finally arrives in Hong Kong as well which we know didn't happen but after the military crackdown on June fourth Hong Kong served another purpose if you came this important counter factual of what China could have been with some limited civil rights here's Joe from saw an activist who now lives in New Jersey but in nineteen eighty nine he was one of the student leaders in Tiananmen Hong Kong show the odds are stacked up chime in C. spirit off the people yes this condo at the beach you it's represented to lawful street the ninety people that China could be different but in some ways nineteen eighty nine also sealed Hong Kong state that your Beijing and Hong Kong were drafting the conditions under which China would govern Hong Kong and Beijing after the Saudis tenement protests effectively took control of writing those conditions may include more stringent language on national security and the version that you see them citing today the latter is that candlelight vigil that Jones was just talking about in Hong Kong feels particularly existential despair because Hong Kong is now coming under threat from Beijing's control yeah and and of course the the very fact that they were able to hold this vigil at all this memorial for tenements where over the years suggests that there has been greater freedom in Hong Kong what's happening now that the government the central government's cracking down that could disappear quickly there is this proposed national security law which would effectively criminalize all forms of dissent in Hong Kong that will likely be passed this month by Beijing and then today Hong Kong's own legislature passed a national anthem law which criminalizes people who make fun of China's national anthem back in ninety three years in prison now or a hefty fine lawmakers try to block that vote one was dragged out of the chamber the bill passed anyways so now we have this anniversary which has been marked for generations for decades anyway and in Hong Kong and that that that that commemoration is banned water people going to do after this behind the rally said tonight they're still going to congregate they're going to risk arrest and fines churches which has more the way when it comes to corona virus related social distancing guidelines say that they're going to hold some smaller private events across Hong Kong and people are encouraging other individuals to light candles in their home if they don't want to come to a public space so events are still going to go forward now other countries are trying to put pressure on Beijing to not pass this national security law the US White House has said they'll revoke Hong Kong's trade privileges if the laws passed but Beijing will likely bear that cost and the United Kingdom the former colonial power that ruled Hong Kong actually set this week to open a path for citizenship for about three million Hong Kongers if the national security laws passed Kelly thanks for the update

Hong Kong is in recession after almost 5 months of protests
"I'm Marco Werman this is the world Hong Kong is in recession and after nearly five months of street protests the economy in one of China's most important business hubs is slowing down retail sales are plunging also tourism is off fifty percent in October compared with last year and the U. S. China trade war is taking a financial toll the demonstrations in Hong Kong have been led mostly by young people protesting the way China governs a territory. It's easy to make a historical comparison to nineteen eighty nine when young people in Beijing's Tiananmen Square also protested in Beijing so two years ago we were begging for something called freedom that we member taste them by ones were you were smashed and we just gave up that's Han Dongfang. He was a protest leader in Gentleman Square after the bloody crackdown he spent a couple of years in prison and he later fled to Hong Kong now he's a labor organizer base there and he's watching and supporting this young generation protesters Han told me the movement in Hong Kong DOC is different from gentlemen in one crucial way today Hong Kong young people what they are doing is not begging in an Oscar for freedom is they have been living and freedom now someone attempting to take away so that is the fundamental for instance that is what I believe these people will never gave up how much have you been speaking with protesters in Hong Kong in recent weeks and what have you been hearing I am not really speaking to them I am participating in every major protest I am industries I observe them and I learned from on them because if I well remember in nine in two thousand fourteen I saw these young people into the highway and I run into them I said look you've got to get out from the highway you are giving them excuses the two shoe and I came from a nineteen eighty nine Tiananmen Square as what happens at the time they get shoes and these are shooting people and people don't want to listen to me an ICU kind of sad. about saw you know they are really not taking their life Catholic and they are really taking great risk but on fung aren't the protesters today also giving the the authorities plenty of reasons to kind of mistake reprisals I mean subway stations have been a set a a light they've occupied the airport I mean they're giving it seems the police a lot of reasons to to crack down on them yes you can say today even more than two thousand fourteen even more than thirty years ago in Tiananmen Square was they'll protesters are doing but the fundamental differences the protesters the mentality and courage so two years ago we we're fighting for something in or dreams we never know whenever taste it if we don't get it and we don't really lose anything but nowadays these people what from my observation in the street every major protest I can see a determination from their phase their body language and especially this is joined by men women young men and women and women are not following a man and men are on their own so all over in st they in their say's in their body language you can read they are ready to burn together it if it burns so dunk fung what is your advice to the Hong Kong protesters at this moment and where should they steer that courage I'm afraid I don't have a any strategic suggestions because I don't have it I am is a learning from them about the decorative ity of organizing difference activism protests every day during the week and evening date so this is a very new to mate so US Vice President Mike Pence says a America stands with Hong Kong and he criticised China for curtailing the rights is in liberties of Hong Kongers does that help the protesters or does it just add to the Chinese government's claim that this whole protest movement is a Western inspired separatist movement oh it's definitely help the movement the protests in Hong Kong and to make the Chinese government to think twice what to do but I have a very serious question here as Mista pants our Mr trump they taking this decision as a strategic move to make themselves in better position during the trade deal trade talk as a chip or as they are taking it as principal that no matter what even there there's no trade war they will take this human rights and democracy matter seriously what about if the U. S. China trade deal goes well while they oh back there will be no pressure there's no concern at what the Hong Kong people will do with that so help us with this one final question Dongfang despite some of the police crackdown on protesters disrupting business and mass transit in Hong Kong it seems many Hong Kongers have not abandoned or given up on the protesters and their actions why do you think that is what does it tell us you know Hong Kong people have enjoyed the freedom or snow much democracy Z. in a pause up to this point but enjoy the freedom freedom means you don't have to realize that every day morning would you tab use as I'm in freedom no freedom the beauty of freedom you don't realize that every day you don't have to pay attention but once somewhat attempt to AAC it whether your business person big business small business big like Miss the League coaching as more like other corners streets let you open a small restaurant leak catching as a big tycoon in Hong Kong right yeah big tie tongue one of the I didn't know riches Jason and Asia and the world maybe these people they all suddenly few their freedom as maybe a facing to a risk and this is a what make people bring people together you lose the same things that you enjoy didn't really have to feel it every day now you feel the same danger but the same even people were walking in the street protests the same things are fearful of losing freedom and they're not not necessarily show last or right middle or what but they are gathered together on this one same interests and fear which is fearful of losing freedom so that's my explanation about why Hong Kong people even the businesspeople they lose some business they're not but they're still tolerate this because they know that I had them. There will be bigger things to Luke's Han Dongfang a protest leader at Gentlemen Square nineteen eighty nine and currently a Labor activist thank you very much for your perspective I really appreciate it thank you thank you.

"So let's talk about China last Friday Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey tweeted quote fight for freedom stand with Hong Kong unquote that might sound anodyne enough in the American political context but a true outrage in China where the NBA and especially the rockets are wildly popular the Chinese reacted to punish the NBA polling rockets merchandise off the markets and taking NBA preseason games off the air China wants an apology and they wanted in the form they usually secret for multinationals the go against the Chinese line by for example presenting Taiwan as a separate country from China Marriott international respects and supports the sovereignty and territorial integrity of China that's a real statement from Marriott last year after employees expressed support for human rights in Tibet at ended up firing that employee the NBA has not been willing to go that far in the face of Chinese demands well more he took down his tweet commissioner Adam silver said league supports his right to free speech that's contrary to the Chinese line which is the free speech does not extend to support for what it considers to be separatist movements but can be is also alienated Americans by expressing regret that Maury support for freedom in Hong Kong and quote deeply offended many of our friends and fans in China unquote and for a league that's prided itself on letting players express themselves on matters of social concern now other players nor coaches nor managers seem to want to talk about the merits of the Hong Kong issue at all this week the NBA's limp response has led to a bipartisan group of lawmakers from Ted Cruz to Alexandria castle Cortez demanding the NBA withdrawal from China until China agrees to stop selectively punishing Houston Rockets for Maurice exercise of free speech on American soil Lynette as we can see with this example with Marriott and many others before the NBA this is been going on for years but this NBA story seems to have a lot of Americans focusing for the first time on the way China treats American multinationals and what that means for American values and free speech around the world and worrying that instead of exporting freedom to China's made we hope to do two decades ago they were importing China's authoritarianism is is that something we should be worried about yeah I think that we are no longer under there the illusion that exporting big macs and basketball to China are going to get the Chinese Communist Party to change values and if you are not exporting values to China you need to worry that China is exporting values to you and that's the case here Hong Kong has become a new third wait rail in Chinese politics when the NBA went into China in the nineties it was not that it was you know they knew that it you know too that was off limits Taiwan was off limits Tiananmen Square is off limits three T. is now Hong Kong has become part of that this is a relatively new development and I can understand that things are changing quickly the kids in Hong Kong who are protesting are getting exactly what they want which is becoming a flashpoint between the west and China and and it's a new reality that we're gonna have to deal with as well as the reality that she's in paying is far more bellicose sees enemies everywhere and is far more aggressive than his predecessors so American companies look at this and they see China really caring about the stuff it's it's not always clear the extent to which that's the Chinese government caring versus the Chinese public caring I think I think people do make an error the way they talk about this is that were solely the Chinese government I think some of this is Jane genuine public opinion and consumer concern in China but basically these US firms see this stuff is really cared about China U. S. consumers don't really care about this stuff and so we should change what's in our movies so that it meets with you know with Chinese expectations about Chinese patriotism and you know we should refrain from commenting on political issues that are flashpoints in China and rich I'm I just look at that I'm not sure what to do about it I mean you see people saying things like all trading with China isn't worth it but a that you know that that would be a big thing to try to change it also I don't even know what that would mean you want to we're gonna prohibit people in China from watching American basketball I think it's I think it's very hard to extricate yourself from the wishes of a large rising country with a lot of middle income people that has you know about a billion and a half residents well it is a real problem and it's just China has managed to this where they have their own dictatorial one party state with a semi market system that's created a huge and lark lucrative customer base for American businesses and as capitalist enterprises they're really responsive to that and ways that because self abasement and the the NBA is just the worst example of it and just the the stocks tarnishing hypocrisy of the NBA you know bowling North Carolina and to changing a bathroom law doesn't like and then render yourself completely mute on on you know heinous human rights abuses are much worse than anything North Carolina could do on bathrooms and by the way China's horrible on gay and transgender issues and no one will say a peep about it is it's just really despicable conduct and it and and just having by the confiscating signs comes getting a sign at a an exhibition game at the arena down a Washington it just has Google Uighurs he can't hold a sign that says learn more about a minority group it's completely insane I think though I will say that the Chinese government in its tabloids seems to be backtracking at first four days ago it was you know screw the NBA were very angry and now they're like okay you can go back to watching basketball again it's eats weird seeing the CCP do this because you know it it for years the Chinese model was kind of by your time be polite and you know don't show China strength until it's fully strong and now you know yeah the CZ P. kind of unleashed the Chinese you know I nationalism on the NBA and then realize we second we have to get this genie back in the bottle because the Americans are mad I mean I don't think China is ever pissed off Americans like this is that why it's not that because I've been wondering about whether this is successfully splitting the Chinese consumer base from the Chinese government which is to say that like American consumers you know Chinese consumers might you know have opinions about Hong Kong that doesn't necessarily mean they care deeply all of them do care deeply about the NBA lesson is are we out of bide your time are we strong enough destroyer strength or are we still invite your time but also kind of the that's the tension that China has right now partly because of the trade war partly because of Hong Kong are we strong enough to show our strength yet or are we still in this period of bide your time and when Americans get really really angry China is China kind of takes a second and take the beaten says wait a second maybe we're still invite your time out you don't think that they're concerned about losing internal public support where people are just gonna say I just want to watch the Houston Rockets when a fan of yeah I mean that's one issue and the other issue is you know what American at what the United States has done to Chinese tech companies and they realize after what happened with while way you know if the Americans get really really mad and cut off you know the US semiconductor industry they can still cripple our our major multinationals they can still cripple our advancement they can still stunned China twenty twenty five so the are you invite your time or are you strong enough to make bellicose statements like this it's a real tension right now and I think that's that's why we're seeing this this putting that genie back in the bottle in Chinese media Chinese tabloids I wonder if there are ways to use the the international trade agreements mechanisms to our advantage here which is to say we talk a lot when when we have trade disputes with China about what we want out of them that we want market access we want US financial firms people sell products there do we want them to respect the intellectual property of our software firms of our pharmaceutical firms what about respecting the intellectual property of our entertainment and sports firms if we said to them you know what we want market access for these firms that means allowing companies in on an even playing field without discriminating against them on the basis of of legal statements their employees might make in other countries now obviously I can imagine the Chinese would both resist roles like that and maybe not comply with them at all times but that's the thing we encounter on farm on software to it feels like this is a thing that we actually could negotiate for and that among other things when China does the these sorts of things punishes companies for saying the wrong things those are trade restrictions it's it's feels clinical to describe them as trade restrictions but they are they are and and we have ways of addressing trade restrictions I think this is shing point it would be a worthy goal just worries a practical matter it may require the Chinese changing their system even more than our current demands on them on trades would be very unlikely to result minor I I don't know I the there's a reason why US corporates were mixed on having this trade war in the first place and it's because they'd gotten along you know kind of quietly doing what the Chinese said without Americans really finding out about it and the trade war is bringing a lot of this to light how much Chinese US corporate have kowtow to the Chinese it's embarrassing for them and part of it is part of why they kept quiet was because of this change because of the shame of getting their intellectual property stolen changing the bad guy out in Hollywood film all this has been very Chaim as shameful and unfortunately now that the aggression between the US and China has has been blown out in the open so to have has the shameful behavior of US corporates I think it's really weird the way the president has handled the story which is why isn't he you're eagerly jumping on it here it's like this political gift to him here is this event that is created organic sentiment against communist China and specifically against the way communist China does does this commerce on at the time that he's waiting this trade warranty has Ted Cruz and A. O. C. N. Tomalin asking people all over the political spectrum Congress complaining about the Chinese why can't he picked us up and say see this is why we need to get tough on China this is why we need the terrorists to squeeze concessions out them so that they out of them so they treat American firms fairly it seems like this would be an opportunity for him to actually win over people who have been skeptical of his China policy and any barely wants to touch it no one he hasn't been big on talking about human rights in Hong Kong himself to he's afraid of offending China because he really wants at least over Chinese trade deal I mean it it's a you know when we talk about the trade deal we talk about what trump wants and what people are expecting now what Wall Street is expecting is nothing more than a pump and dump really something like you know trump doing some minor detail saying a bunch of positive things the stock market going up and then during the next deadline you know things kind of falling off and going off the rails again I mean trump can do no better than that and in his career in the stock market he never did any better than a pump and dump either but so then why are the markets up so much this week because when the president goes out and makes these statements about you know things are you know the tone is completely changed with China things are so much better I'm really excited about this meeting for this vice from here I think the way this is covered in the news is basically as trump B. S. saying trying to move the markets up he is trusting buttons but then why don't the market see through that wire the market's moving up there that you know that should mean that they think that you know the economic outlook is better because this actually reflects a change in the way that our trade relationship with China is going
China celebrates 70th anniversary as Xi warns ‘no force can shake great nation’
"What's it like to be in China as it marks the seventy years of communist rule in Tiananmen Square facing the famed red outside wall of Beijing's forbidden city tanks and missiles rolled past in a military parade today. this was one of many ways to China's government celebrated the Republic that was proclaimed after communists one power in nineteen forty nine well outside Beijing in Hong Kong pro democracy protesters mark this anniversary with demonstrations All Things Considered host also Chang is in Beijing today she's been reporting for several days inside China hi there also Hey Steve what have you seen today. well we've been spending most of the day walking around central Beijing we were within a mile of Tiananmen Square where the festivities were happening even though we were credentialed by the Chinese government to cover the event most foreign media were not allowed at the actual site of the celebration in fact we were told by police officers today that are credentials didn't even allow us to interview anyone on the street or take any pictures while walking around the city and I want to say it is worth noting that that lack of access to these huge celebrations went for most of the people in central Beijing I mean there were barricades police everywhere keeping crowds at bay and what we saw were people just sitting around in beach chairs all over the sidewalk as if they were waiting for festivities to pass on by but they were all actually just watching the celebration huddled around these tiny screens on their iPhones participating but also know we totally shut out at the same time all of those rules would imply some tension on the part of the government some anxiety on the part of the government that nothing would disrupt this this anniversary nevertheless it was the anniversary that brought you to China you've been able to move around a bit more freely on other days and what what are you trying to learn. what I wanted to take a look at on this trip were what promises did the Chinese Communist Party makes seventy years ago and what promises have they make good on basically because you know in a lot of ways the CZ P. is a party of contradictions it was once the party of revolution it's now become the establishment here yes communist in name but it is not the party of the proletariat it's a party of state capitalism and it's a party that promise to lift people out of poverty which you know to be true be told it has done a spectacular job of in fact it's lifted hundreds of millions of people out of poverty but at the same time income inequalities have intensified over the last few decades and part of our reporting here has been trying to understand how those inequalities have played out over different generations within different classes of people who have you been able to talk with well this time of migrant workers who had moved to Beijing thirty years ago from the countryside on these are guys who work seven days a week ten hours a day and yet they still say their lives are hundreds even thousands of times better than their parents lives are their exact words and that gets to one of the party's central promises which is if you work hard and you trust us we will make your life better and we found that that message actually resonates with people from totally different backgrounds here like here's an architect who lives in Beijing her name is grace jeans she's twenty eight so I don't care who is the leader. I'm really not care or you just know you can't choose anyway maybe both. but just selling trial maybe yeah we know the leader what makes Daddy wise choice like his his days unlike the United States so what what she's saying is you know me and also want to stability to focus on her career on success and she says that is exactly what the Chinese government is giving her of course in Hong Kong there are people who don't want that arrangement who want more freedom to choose their own leaders and been protesting get again today what is China's leadership saying about Hong Kong on this particular day of celebration in protest yeah well president she's in pain today mention Hong Kong specifically he reiterated that Hong Kong will always be a part of China it's one country two systems and he vowed that China will always maintain stability in Hong Kong he said specifically no force can shake the status of our great mother land no force can obstruct the advance of the Chinese people and Chinese nation also thanks very much for your impressions really appreciate it you're welcome NPR's
Hong Kong protests turn violent
"Okay well speaking in a big brother. That's actually a great segue into one of the biggest stories around the globe over the weekend which were the violent protests in Hong Kong so the Hong Kong protests are entering their seventeenth week and they have really dialed up in the past few days because today is the seventieth anniversary of communist Communist rule in China as you can imagine pro democracy protesters in Hong Kong are not exactly excited to celebrate this anniversary but it's a big deal for China which which means. It's a big way for the protesters to send a message. China puts on a big military display in previous years. They've had twelve thousand troops marched through Tiananmen Square where they expect those numbers to be even bigger this year and so with a trade war already giving lots of negative press to China and its economy Hong Kong and in at specifically the pro democracy protesters saw this as their chance to continue to protest and make their messages heard. Unfortunately many of the protests turned turned violent. There are lots of reports of police brutality police fired canister after canister of tear gas and the protesters fought back with blockade aide blocking the streets with throwing stones taken up from the sidewalks and streets and with gasoline bombs thrown back in defense at the police police. We are not helping the situation with our trade war with China. Hong Kong's value to the world has often been as a hub that is kind kind of a bridge between the outside world and mainland China and with the increasing friction between China and the United States there are commentators who think think that Hong Kong's value as that hub is diminishing and it's really jeopardising Hong Kong's place in the world long-term The New York Times quotes Lynette Aung Long a China expert at the University of Toronto is saying after all of this we will see a different Hong Kong the very reason for Hong Kong's existence the rule of law respect for the police for public institutions respect for the judiciary the bureaucracy everything has been eroded. This is a really existential time for Hong Kong and having it come at the same time as this anniversary of Communist role in China when Xi Jinping is engaged in his domestic grab for power in making his term term basically unlimited and his G. political jockeying for power with the United States. It's just there's a lot going on here. I am impressed seventeen weeks to sustain protests. It's amazing and I don't think the protesters and Hong Kong are going anywhere. They are really fighting for their country. We had a listener listener reach out on instagram and say I don't understand the goal of these protests because even if many of their demands hands are met and many have been the original legislation to extradite political prisoners to China or anybody else charged with a crime was withdrawn officially but she asked even if they succeed and having these demands bet we're coming up on the deadline where we have one country two systems that was set up when Hong Kong was released from British rule and turned back over to the Chinese government that that deadline is approaching and so so what do we see happening. What are they. What are the protesters? The PRO democracy protesters who existed before this bill came before the Hong Kong legislator the what's their goal. What is the the long view of how they could exist separate from China if they imagine a scenario when China would ever allow that to happen and and the answer is I don't know I don't know and I don't really feel like it's my place to advocate for one of the other because I don't live in Hong Kong and so the people who do and the the pro democracy protesters particularly the the young ones that people who are going to be living way past just the deadline of this agreement have demands and they do have a vision and it does seem to be if not separate from China fiercely independent and I think as the weeks of the protests continue we'll have a better understanding of where they envisioned all this going but the Chinese government government most certainly envisions a more forceful physical clash with these protesters.

"Gonna stamp it down like Tiananmen Square. and so the there are citizens in China who are being motivated to follow the dictates of the communist Chinese government in order to maintain a high social score it is the way the trite com's our our for saying that kind of mass behavior they want and of course the mass behavior they want is no criticism of government. is permitted if you criticize the government in public you get a negative mark and it's that one's a a pretty big one you could lose privileges you can use those various shopping privileges use of your mobile device behavioral your could be subject to charges of breaking the law. and. yeah it's it's really it's really hideous. and it's being done under the guise like the Chinese of the communist do everywhere of maintaining social order. and proper behavior in proper morality and and all of that. in the drive by media and some of the people that I read to my tech blogs they're not so outraged by it they well it's the Chinese what you're gonna say I would maintain to you. that I think Google and Twitter and YouTube. and all of these social media Titans are already doing this. aiming at conservatives look at the number of conservatives that are bland band that our shadow band that are in the accounts are closed simply because they're conservative they may not even be rabble rousing they're just conservative. they are critical of the government critical of Obama critical of this critical that they get shut down I don't see any real difference. other than Google and Twitter and YouTube or not the government. but this is the kind of thing that that that takes hold and and and can and can build ABC has a long story on this yeah it's a mixture of video and still shots and tax and it's impossible to format. in in print to give you details but I've I've been following this for the past. couple of weeks and it's it's just it's typical communism and it is it is portrayed as loving and maintaining order but it clearly is the the kind of over a billion people this is the way they're going to control of my issuing public scores..

"I mean if it's another the Tiananmen Square it's I think it's a very hard thing to do if there's violence but how much influence can the U. S. exert on what's happening in Hong Kong currently to help us answer that question we're joined now by Kurt Hahn who until July with the consul general to Hong Kong and Macau basically he was the official envoy of the U. S. to Hong Kong welcome thanks for having me so much leverage does the US really have right now in shaping China's response to Hong Kong well the US is a very major partner for Hong Kong's economy we have some fourteen hundred US businesses that have a major presence there and so it's a weird portent to Hong Kong Hong Kong is also important to United States and our ability to both do business in the region and also have good relationships with lots of different aspects of of China right but as we just heard from his now lean team the ongoing trade talks with China with the situation in Hong Kong does that strike you as a good strategy for dealing with what's happening in Hong Kong sure well I think it's important for the United States to be you know consistent and and quite principled in our approach to Hong Kong in Greeley continuing to make the case that that is very important for Hong Kong to enjoy the the high degree of autonomy that was promised under the original arrangement of the handover under the one country two systems framework and so you know we should can you know be very consistent and continue to push for a for that autonomy and also for respect for for the Hong Kong people's freedom of expression so I think that it's it's good that the president is paying attention to the issue and and and stating that it's important to United States use mention that is important to to for the US to voice respect for the autonomy of people in Hong Kong their freedom of expression but is there a risk that connecting what's happening in Hong Kong with the ongoing trade talks is there a risk that it sounds kind of transactional why not I certainly don't think that that's that's the the the right message to be sending and I'm I'm guessing that's not what's intended I think that in a politically there isn't an impact of the situation in Hong Kong on how the United States is viewing its ability to cooperate with China writ large but I I don't think that there's a the the it's proper to have a a specific linkage or quid pro quo with respect to Hong Kong because certainly wouldn't wouldn't wanna be trading Hong Kong away for for a trade deal you mentioned that you think it's important for the US to stay on it on a consistent message with Hong Kong but president trump has sent mixed signals earlier this month he said that what's happening in Hong Kong is quote between Hong Kong and between China he called the protests riots back then do you think the president's inconsistency on the messaging on Hong Kong has work to weekend whatever influence the US hopes to exert well there is a fine line to to walk on these things certainly the United States should never support violent protests and I think that that needs to be made clear at the same time the supporting the general principles of of freedom of assembly and freedom of expression her tongue is the former US consul general to Hong Kong and Macau thank you very much for joining us thank you reporter.

"Seeing the Chinese throw out gradually or make life hard for Google Facebook other American companies, recently, Microsoft and replace those firms with their Chinese equivalents. Then we saw them begin to spread out with equipment that would not only tied together like-minded countries. But that would lend themselves to the kind of social control that the Chinese have been exercising in Chinese networks. Of course, they're now using artificial intelligence and facial recognition to keep track of dissidence to make sure that there are Social Credit scores that can get transmitted around easily to figure out who's the most loyal citizen. So the Chinese networks may become the favourite of authoritarians round the world. And if that happens, we could end up with a sort of new Berlin Wall, but one that is built around these networks a highly controlled part of the internet that's run by the Chinese and then a western internet. That's more like what were all custom you type into the search engine tell me about Tiananmen Square. You get a real Wikipedia entry that answers it that you wouldn't. Get if you type those same questions in over a Chinese network. So the fight over y you're saying fits into that the US is discouraging kind of our half of the world from leading the way in which may further this division of these two internet's the east and the west, absolutely. The Chinese have been trying to do this for a long time. But we may actually be feeding process by barring wa away and other Chinese companies from building key parts of the western internet. And you know, the oddity about this is if you're going to have a global telecommunications network sooner or later, the United States is going to have to plug in to the Weiwei built five G networks as well. That's not the same as having them build the core of your own network. But it's not as if you're going to be able to say, we're never gonna talk to a five G network built by the Chinese. I wonder is there an argument for letting wall way in a controlled way help develop networks around the world, including. In the United States. So that there is a truly integrated internet. I I understand the risks. You're outlining, and they seem very real. But if everybody goes off into their corner and builds their own internet that would seem like its own giant seven national security risks. It it does seem that way to me. And I think there's one strong argument in favor of lending alway compete in some of these western countries, and maybe even compete in the United States is that if they wanna have their equipment and their software inside the United States. They have to show it to American right? They have to bring that software over let the United States poke through it let it examine that for back doors, and in fact in private you've heard many people in US industry say that the national security agency. Hey, the smart way to go about this is let while we competed will drive the price down and you'll see their work and the NFC as hands for at least. So far has been. We're sorry.

It's dark when you leave in the morning. But it's always freezing cold. But I went to see a new play at the Guthrie that opened last night called the great leap paper. Yeah. It sounded interesting. And so I thought I think maybe my fourteen year old would like this. Because it's it's the premise is basketball. But it's not so much about sports. It's really a story kind of a family story, but also through the lens of history. It's kind of set in historical. If it goes between the seventies and then Tiananmen Square in China. Yeah. And so I thought my my kid likes history. I thought he might be interested. It's really cleverly done. There's only four actors in the whole show, and it was so funny because afterwards I said that we'd really like you have to think about it. Because one. No, they don't they don't they don't. But it's just so clever the way it's it's so simple. But elegant the way it staged and there's a lot of swearing. I have to say that I got a little nervous because heard it before. Well, that's the thing we walked in. And there's a big sign warning you that like the language is strong. And I'm like, oh my God.
