China slaps first sanctions on US over Hong Kong bill

Hong Kong pro-democracy rally cut short by police tear gas Rare mass protest breaks out in Chinese province near Hong Kong

Trump's decision to sign the legislation, which was approved unanimously by the Senate and by all but one lawmaker in the House last week, drew swift condemnation from Beijing China condemned the U.S. Thursday for its "stark hegemonic acts" and for interfering in the region's affairs.

Video footage circulated on Twitter, purported to be of the protests, showed police firing tear gas and chasing people in the town of Wenlou, Guangdong province.

What is the situation in Hong Kong?

According to the agreement, Sunday's protest started from the famous Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower at 3 p.m. and march to Hong Kong Coliseum via Salisbury Road.

While China has in the past suspended visits by US military ships and aircraft, sanctioning NGOs, especially those with connections to the USA government, would bring conditions for civil society in Hong Kong significantly closer to those in mainland China.

They chanted "five demands, not one less" and "disband the police force" as they marched, in reference to the protest movement's five formal demands of the Government.

Along with suspending visits by official USA military ships and aircraft, Hua said China would sanction organizations including the National Endowment for Democracy, the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs, Human Rights Watch, the International Republican Institute, Freedom House, and others that she said had "performed badly" in the Hong Kong unrest.

A man clearing barricades in Hong Kong was hit in the head with a street drain cover over the weekend, marking a violent return to anti-Government demonstrations across the Asian financial hub. "No matter how many weapons they use and how much force they deploy, officials turn a blind to our demands", said Chan, a clerk in her 40s who declined to give her last name.

A protester wears an American flag scarf during one of the rallies, appealing to U.S. President Donald Trump for his government's continued support. "Just stay with Hong Kong, free Hong Kong and please boycott China".

Pro-democracy protesters take part in a "March of Gratitude" rally on Sunday to say thank you to the USA for signing legislation that authorizes sanctions on Chinese and Hong Kong officials involved in human rights abuses.

In an opinion piece published Saturday in Hong Kong's South China Morning Post newspaper, Ms Bachelet called for an "independent and impartial judge-led investigation into reports of excessive use of force by the police".

She also said that Lam's government must prioritize "meaningful, inclusive" dialogue to resolve the crisis.

"China urges the United States to correct its mistakes and stop any words and deeds that interfere in Hong Kong and China's internal affairs", Hua said, adding that China could take "further necessary actions" depending on how matters develop.

"They shoulder some responsibility for the chaos in Hong Kong and they should be sanctioned and pay the price", said Hua.
