  • China to impose visa restrictions on US individuals over Hong Kong

Hundreds of Hong Kongers marched silently through the city's streets on Sunday in protest against the looming national security legislation to be implemented by the mainland Chinese government.

China's state-run media Xinhua, in an article published late afternoon on Sunday, stated that the NPC standing committee, a body of 175 members who oversee the ceremonial congress, reviewed a number of bills, including a draft of the national security law.

Despite aggressively pushing the law, top Hong Kong leaders such as Chief Executive Carrie Lam have not seen a draft of the legislation and have been unable to answer questions from those concerned it will curtail Hong Kongers' civil liberties.

Now, protesters have been turning up to oppose the proposed security law.

Scuffles broke out in Mong Kok during the event, prompting police to use pepper spray to subdue parts of the crowd, according to a Reuters witness.

The protests slowed this year as the coronavirus pandemic outlawed large gatherings, but people returned to the streets in May after Beijing announced its plan to impose the security law.

"Hong Kong's high degree of autonomy and the full implementation of the Sino-British Joint Declaration, as well as respect for human rights, are of fundamental importance". He said Hong Kong elections due in September would show China's intentions. In particular they could impact the travel of the children of Chinese officials who attend Universities in the US.

Rosenzweig added that Hong Kong authorities were already "weaponizing the local law against too many of its citizens", and urged Beijing to establish legal provisions that would guarantee Hongkongers' rights.

China is moving forward on a security law that would enforce punishment for subversion and other offences in Hong Kong, which was rocked by massive and sometimes violent pro-democracy protests a year ago. This is consistent with the Chinese regime's propaganda about ongoing pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong, portraying them as unrest incited by foreign governments.

The Chinese Foreign Ministry said on Monday that the country will put visa restrictions on some us individuals with egregious conduct related to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) after Washington announced visa restrictions on some Chinese officials over the city.

Last week, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that Washington is imposing visa restrictions on officials of the Communist Party of China (CPC) "believed to be responsible for undermining freedoms in Hong Kong".

As the pace of deterioration in the U.S.

The U.S. along with several other nations, including the United Kingdom have repeatedly condemned China's attempt to exert security powers in Hong Kong, prompting the U.S.'s latest move to block visas for current and former CCP officials affiliated with undermining Hong Kong's autonomy.

"We urge the U.S. side to immediately correct its mistakes, withdraw the decisions and stop interfering in China's domestic affairs".
