Why the world must wake up to China's threat to freedom in Hong Kong | Benedict Rogers

Twenty years ago, as a fresh graduate, I flew to Hong Kong just a few months after the handover to begin my first job. In the past three years I have become increasingly concerned about the erosion of Hong Kong’s freedoms and the rule of law, and the threats to the “one country, two systems” pledge. 12-10-17

Hong Kong's mixture of feng shui and financing, trams and temples however amaze the tourist therefore allow your self get and make it probable with Hotelbye . In Hong Kong you will consume some of the finest food you have ever tasted, you will be surprised by the beautiful harbor and you'll feel empowered by a combination of the urban, the rural and the maritime. If you are in Hong Kong you can't miss the Golden Bauhinia Square outside the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre on the Wan Chai waterfront marks the unification of Hong Kong with the motherland. Also, in Hong Kong you can see the Symphony of Lights, you will certainly get amaze by this great bit of art.
expats in hong kong were in similar limbo when thatcher was negotiating the basic law that handed hong kong back to the chinese. uk could not guarantee protection for brits living there afterwards and china was unwilling to commit to allowing even those who had previously obtained hk residency. of course, china did not issue chinese passports at that time to anyone without chinese lineage. uk advised submit residency forms for hk/china on day of handover. local english radio was swamped with calls every sunday. so what's new.
The most atheistic countries in the world are China, Japan, Czech Republic, France, Australia, Iceland, Sweden, Hong Kong, the UK and Holland. Not what I would call a list of countries on their way to being destroyed. You don't need religion to have morals and values, only if you are one of those people who need the threat of eternal damnation in order to do the right thing.
How are they behaving in Glasgow? Aren't most Scots in Glasgow for the yes? Anyways, could be worse, could be Chinese. Hong Kong and China also have these independent issues going on and the fact that Hong Kong are comparing themselves to Scotland said it all but its not comparable because 1) Scotland is a country and HK is not 2) they say they should be a country because of the difference between HK and China when every city in each country are different e.g. accent, cuisine, dialects, culture etc. You get the drill. Absolutely, I see what you mean. I feel for you. Nice to hear from you mate.
Tips & things to do when visiting Hong Kong? I'm travelling to Hong Kong in summer for around 2 weeks, was just wondering if anyone can recommend any good shops and places to eat (but nothing too out there!) also some more traditional things as we were going to go out of Hong Kong aswell, also any tips about how to spend time and things, just anything really!
heu... could be Hong Kong colony culture and the growing population of migrant workers through years...? It's has very difference scene compared to the mainland China... Yes most of the Female Hong Kongese are beautiful too...

China extends national anthem 'disrespect' law to Hong Kong China's largely rubber-stamp parliament formally extended a law banning disrespect of the national anthem on Saturday to cover Hong Kong, a move that critics have said undermined the Chinese-ruled city's autonomy and freedoms. In the past few years, some Hong Kong football fans have booed the national anthem during World Cup qualifiers and other matches, mirroring protests in the United States where football players knelt during the national anthem, a practice denounced by U.S. President Donald Trump.

'Three dead, dozens injured' as Typhoon Hato barrels through Hong Kong, Macao and China Dozens of people were injured and at least three dead after a powerful typhoon barrelled into Hong Kong and the nearby city of Macao before hitting China on Wednesday, reports said. Thousands were evacuated from their homes in southern China as Typhoon Hato - the worst storm in the region for five years - slammed into the mainland after flooding streets and uprooting trees in Hong Kong. The maximum category 10 storm had forced Hong Kong’s stock market to close and caused at least 400 flights at the city’s airport to be cancelled. A man wal

Hong Kong seeks law banning booing of China's national anthem Hong Kong will try to enact a law penalizing people who boo the Chinese national anthem "as soon as possible", an official said on Wednesday, in a move that critics say undermines the Chinese-ruled city's autonomy and freedoms. In the past few years, some Hong Kong football fans have booed the national anthem during World Cup qualifiers and other games, mirroring a more recent protest in the United States with football players kneeling during the national anthem, a practice denounced by U.S. President Donald Trump.
