    Yeah, those 90 year old cardinals, always advocating for the overthrow of the government and imposition of anarchy...

    Has anyone been convicted of collusion with foreign forces? What is classified as collusion?

    I thought Denise Ho was already arrested or they arrested her again?

    Hong Kong had run out of coffins before but has found one to drive another nail into

    I guess it's unclear now what they are being charged for exactly, but is this an application of the NSL retroactively for their actions in the past?! I know there was some vague wording about this to make this possible (as so much is with the NSL) but I thought there was some kind of "assurances" (ha ha) it wouldn't be used.

    Surely they haven't done anything today to break the law. This seems worrying.

    The arrogance -- not caring or blatantly flaunting the law -- to show they don't have to have decency by arresting a 90 year old working in the church.

    The quotes from this AP article match the weather today...
