China arrests protest organizers in Hong Kong
The Hill is reporting that "Top US officials are condemning the arrests of more than a dozen leading organizers of the anti-governments protests that swept Hong Kong last year. Police made at least 14 arrests Saturday, including activist and ex-lawmaker Martin Lee, media owner Jimmy Lai and protest organizers Albert Ho, Lee Cheuk-yan and Au Nok-hin."
“Beijing and its representatives in Hong Kong continue to take actions inconsistent with commitments made under the Sino-British Joint Declaration that include transparency, the rule of law, and guarantees that Hong Kong will continue to ‘enjoy a high degree of autonomy,’” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement, referencing the 1997 agreement under which the British handed over the city to China, with the Chinese government agreeing to grant it more autonomy than mainland China."
As we previously reported, Hong Kong is defending its basic law. They are defending Hong Kong's Constitution which was created by the Sino-British Joint Declaration.
"The Sino–British Joint Declaration is an international treaty signed between the People's Republic of China and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland on 19 December 1984 in Beijing. The Declaration stipulates the sovereign and administrative arrangement of then-British Hong Kong after 1 July 1997, when the lease of the New Territories was set to expire according to the Convention for the Extension of Hong Kong Territory."
The BBC reported that "When Hong Kong was handed back to China on 1 July 1997, following more than 150 years of British control, the 'one country, two systems' principle was established as the foundation of the relationship. While Hong Kong is part of China, the policy has given the Special Administrative Region (SAR) a high degree of autonomy."
Supporting the extradition and execution of political prisoners for organ harvesting is evil.
There were no bats sold at the Huanan Seafood Market.
We knew this was coming. After China launched this pandemic thanks to Dr Fauci's grant, they arrest the organizers of the Hong Kong protests. Shame on you. Communism SUCKS!
