When Britain handed Hong Kong back to China in 1997, Chinese leaders agreed that Hong Kong would be able to keep its economic and political systems, including some of the civil freedoms denied to China’s citizens on the mainland, for the next 50 years.

Although Hong Kong still has nearly 30 years of semi-autonomy left, China has started tightening its grip, and many believe it is chipping away at Hong Kong’s freedoms. In this episode, I explore how Hong Kong is dealing with the looming deadline and China’s premature moves.

  1. We've released a video explaining the recent demonstrations rocking Hong Kong, as citizens there protest against the government's proposed bill that would allow extradition to China. To get the latest on the current situation, you can watch the video here:

  2. Is Hong Kong apart of China?

    Yes- but no… so we had to-

    modern problems require modern solutions

  3. All of this is because of interference from another country dividing every country evils every where

  4. Hong Kong is just a beginning of China's expansion soon they will claim Vietnam, Korea, and its adjacent countries saying that they were originally a part of China. The Philippines also is slowly suffering from this claiming that it was a province of China.

    Why did the Western Power surrendered their territories during sphere of influence in China? They should have just stayed there!

  5. HongKong needs to stay highly autonomous.. also for world-economy.
    As it looks now, we have to free Hongkong again ;D

  6. I am a Chinese living in Shanghai. To tell you the truth, China's democracy is not so bad, and the Chinese people have freedom of speech and other freedoms to a certain extent. China is not as bad as you think. If there is no freedom of speech in China, the situation of freedom of speech in any part of the world is not perfect. What's more, If the implementation of the new national security law in Hong Kong is a violation of Hong Kong's democracy and freedom, then chaos in Hong Kong some time ago is a blatant violation of the safety and human rights of the urban people.

  7. I don't think i like the Chinese government- as much as everyone slags off the british (for their colonialism which is terrible) the culture they seeded in Hong Kong is lovely.
