• China's parliament approved the implementation of the controversial national security law in Hong Kong. Hong Kong can now be stripped of its status as a semi-autonomous region. The draft of this law was passed in the Chinese Parliament last Thursday as well. However, it could not be passed due to opposition from the people.

• Hong Kong's parliament was ignored by the Chinese government in bringing this new law. In fact, it has been opposing ever since the Chinese government announced a new security law. Protests against the law were held in Hong Kong on Sunday, despite restrictions related to Corona. Thereafter 360 protesters were detained.

What is China's new security law?


• China's new security law will have provisions to prevent activities such as treason, terrorism, foreign interference and protest in Hong Kong. Under this, Chinese security agencies will be able to work in Hong Kong. At the moment, Chinese agencies cannot operate in Hong Kong. Many human rights organizations and international governments have also opposed this law.

America will withdraw special trade status from Hong Kong

• US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has said that Hong Kong will no longer get the special status of business as before. It will no longer be the main financial center. He said that the US hoped that Hong Kong would set an example for China by acting independently. However, it is now clear that China is adapting Hong Kong on its model.

China has always had the authority to make laws


• The people of Hong Kong believe that national security is the basis of the country's stability. Tampering in it would violate their fundamental rights. China always had the authority to implement the National Security Act in Hong Kong's original law, but has so far avoided doing so.
• Elections are scheduled in Hong Kong in September. Just like last year, the supporters of democracy got success, if the district elections were also successful, then the government may have trouble in bringing the bill.
