China threatens to 'counter-attack' United States over Hong Kong curbs

"As China continues to crack down on the democracy movement in Hong Kong, it may soon find ways to prohibit Hong Kong activists from leaving that city, period", Go said Monday at a joint video press conference hosted by Amnesty International.

In his article, Li pointed out that more than 20 years after Hong Kong's return, relevant laws are yet to materialize due to the sabotage and obstruction by those trying to sow trouble in Hong Kong, as well as external hostile forces.

The Global Times, a newspaper published by the Communist Party of China (CPC), is still condemning the double standard being applied by the U.S.to China in its confrontation with Hong Kong.

The police, in a letter to organizers, said the vigil would violate social-distancing rules that ban gatherings of more than eight people.

The rally has been held each year since 1990 to commemorate the crackdown on June 4, 1989 in Beijing's Tiananmen Square.

"U.S. politicians can't deny their responsibility for the current grim situation in Hong Kong", the spokesperson said, noting that the US politicians, who are hostile to China and afraid of China's development, emboldened and provided protection for rioters who committed violent crimes in Hong Kong during the disturbance related to the proposed ordinance amendments.

Anti-government protesters march in Hong Kong, May 24, 2020. Peaceful protests in a number of cities to demand larger police accountability have divulged into widespread rioting and looting, together with a generally heavy-handed response from regulation enforcement.

"COVID-19 must not be used as an excuse to stifle freedom of expression", Amnesty deputy director for East and Southeast Asia Joshua Rosenzweig said.

In the chamber's survey conducted from May 26 to May 29 on the impact of the national security legislation for Hong Kong, a majority of respondents, 61 percent, believe the law will either have a positive impact or no impact at all on their businesses over the long term.

"There is a mounting crisis in Hong Kong, with implications for Canada's relationship with China, an increasingly urgent situation for refugees and immigrants and a pressing need for strong multilateral action".

Protesters demonstrated against the security law during lunchtime Monday at a luxury shopping mall in the Central business district, shouting pro-democracy slogans.

Current Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab also previously promised that British national (overseas) passport holders - including up to 3 million in Hong Kong - would be offered a pathway to British citizenship by allowing them to come to the United Kingdom and study or work for an extendable 12-month period.

Hong Kong has managed to keep the virus mostly in check, with just over 1,000 infections and four deaths. Pro-democracy protests had raged for almost a year in the city before Beijing's May 21 announcement that it would introduce security law to target subversion and sedition - a measure Canada and allies have warned could be used as a tool for political persecution.

Hong Kong political commentator Lam Kei said the city is becoming the front line of a new Cold War between China and Western nations.

She said her clinic is getting calls from Canadians who are anxious for the safety of their loved ones who remain there.

"If I had a choice, I'd rather work and live in Hong Kong".
