    About that...

    The "Hong Kong Be Water" Act of 2019 condemns the Chinese government for violating the Sino-British Joint Declaration of 1984 and the Basic Law. It also calls for sanctions against Hong Kong and Mainland officials, and those operating on their behalf, who suppress Hongkongers' freedom of speech, association, assembly, procession and demonstration,

    The sanctions, which would fall under the Global Magnitsky Act, would freeze the assets of Chinese nationals and state-owned enterprises connected to the crackdown.

    The newly introduced (not really, it's a CCP/state secret) program for the neo-sinicization of PRC subjects also implies sinister final solution for Hong Kong which just may trigger some warning baubles in Washington, and maybe later even in other democratic capitals.

    The prominent class of lackeys 'historically' (esp. post-1997) doing the United Front/DAB's bidding for reasons of personal business interests may soon have something more concrete than the mere impotent ire of ordinary Hongkongers to think about.


    The Globe And Mail: China’s new moral guide elevates Xi over Mao, urges national pride over foreign influence

    Beijing has no plans to loosen its grip on the public and private life of its people, and has grown more overt in its rejection of Western models.

    [..] it reads like a religious document, with references to “faith” and “belief” in a Communist Party-led system that has, under Mr. Xi, sought to diminish the role of traditional religions, particularly Islam and Christianity.

    The new code eliminates, too, deference to the outside world. A previous version published in 2001 recommended taking “lessons from the successful moral construction experiences and the achievements of advanced civilizations of all countries around the world.”

    Such openness is absent in the new version, which describes a need to “continuously purify the social and cultural environment” and pledges especially serious treatment for “people who worship foreign things and harm the dignity of the country.”

    It is “part of a very much larger political trend that is tied to the China Dream, a resurgent nation that can be free of Western influence,”
    “This is also very much connected to what is happening in Hong Kong. They see too much Western free thought in Hong Kong schools as the root cause, and so correct political indoctrination is becoming the top education priority.”

    Waiting for the UK version of HK Human Right Act. They said they will do a similar one after the Brexit is over but now Brexit has been extended and seems no end in sight. I am afraid HK can no longer wait.

    I think UK one will be quite helpful as many hk/china officials seem to have ties with UK.
