China Watch 34, Beijing vs HK people on extradition bill

HK-Chinese have once again expressed their distrust against the China Communist Party (CCP) and Xi Jinping government. This time it's about a HK bill that would allow people to be extradited to mainland China. If HK has 4 M adult population (out of 7.5 M total), then one out of four HK people took to the streets.

The organiser's estimate of 1.03 million people marching the three kilometres from Victoria Park would make it the biggest protest since the former British colony was returned to China in 1997.

At handover, China and Britain had agreed Hong Kong would operate under "One Country, Two Systems", allowing Hong Kong's limited government control over immigration, borders and a separate legal system….

International television news channels reporting the mass protest in Hong Kong were blacked out in mainland China.

The CCP is a highly insecure and secretive government. All they do is to restrict, regulate, prohibit, ban, mainstream and social media that can expose their abuses and insecurities. Until now facebook, twitter, youtube, etc are still not allowed for ordinary Chinese.

Here in the PH, Duterte admin and supporters still trust Xi Jinping. And among Trump-hating free marketers, I won't be surprised that in the current US-CN trade war, they will be on the side of the protectionist-communists just to keep hating Trump.
