Naise. And about time too.

My absolute fave part of the Chinese drill manual is the way they launch the flag during flag raising. I can watch that part on an endless loop. <3

Have to start full integration, about time to adopt to standard Chinese Practices as being part of China.

  • Group says the security law ‘has made it effectively impossible for human rights organisations in Hong Kong to work freely’
  • Amnesty maintains one office in the city focusing on Hong Kong affairs, and another that is part of its regional operations

Amnesty International will close its two offices in Hong Kong by the end of the year, blaming the “devastating” decision on the Beijing-imposed

, which the group says has hampered its work.

Amnesty, which established its presence in the city in 1990, said its office focusing on Hong Kong affairs would cease operations on October 31, while the one dealing with regional affairs would close by the end of the year. The regional operations will be taken over by the organisation’s other locations in Asia-Pacific, although Amnesty did not specify where.

“This decision, made with a heavy heart, has been driven by Hong Kong’s national security law, which has made it effectively impossible for human rights organisations in Hong Kong to work freely and without fear of serious reprisals from the government,” said Anjhula Mya Singh Bais, chair of Amnesty’s international board.

Bais added that while Hong Kong had long been an ideal regional base for international civil society organisations, “the recent targeting of local human rights and trade union groups signals an intensification of the authorities’ campaign to rid the city of all dissenting voices”.

Beijing imposed the national security law in June last year to outlaw acts of subversion, secession, terrorism and collusion with foreign forces. Dozens of activists, including former opposition lawmakers, have since been arrested, and at least 35 groups have broken up, including some of the city’s largest unions and activist organisations.


In her first interview with regional media as secretary general of the human rights group in April, Agnes Callamard told the Post that Amnesty was taking “far more” precautions in carrying out its work than it had before the security law’s passage.

Callamard at the time did not rule out the organisation leaving Hong Kong altogether, saying the possibility was “a source of anguish, a source of pain in fact”.

Following Monday’s announcement, she called the decision “devastating”.
“There are difficult days ahead for human rights in Hong Kong, but Amnesty International will continue to stand with the people of Hong Kong,” she said.

Human rights lawyer Mark Daly said Amnesty’s decision “speaks volumes about Hong Kong’s downward spiral with respect to the rule of law”.
But lawmaker Holden Chow Ho-ding, vice-chairman of the pro-establishment Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong, said he was “deeply disappointed” by Amnesty’s claim it was no longer able to work in the city without fear of official reprisal and called it “untrue”.

“It is outrageous for any organisation to smear the national security law by unnecessarily closing their branches here,” Chow said.

Human Rights Watch, which has its headquarters in New York, does not have an office in Hong Kong. Global head Kenneth Roth said in January last year he was denied entry to the Asian financial hub, where he was scheduled to launch the organisation’s latest world report. The group left Hong Kong after it was penalised by Beijing in retaliation for American legislation supporting Hong Kong protesters in 2019, according to The New York Times.

Amnesty’s announcement came as Chinese President Xi Jinping vowed that China would always uphold world peace and international rules in a speech delivered on Monday marking five decades since his country took a seat at the United Nations.

They can move to Afghanistan and investigate the war crime committed on this family.
Prosecute those responsible.

This b.. Ch and her cohorts should have just been arrested by China and actually sent their behinds to jail. This person is now claiming that Hong Kong is Not CHINA and has allied itself to the ETIM terrorists and separatists.

Excellent, so she has outted herself as a terrorist sympathiser and NED/CIA sock puppet in one video.

She should be glad China is better than her Anglo masters, because if China behaved like them, she would have already been renditioned to a black site in some hellhole; or been on the receiving end of a drone strike.

The black clad protestors took such lengths to hide their faces and identities, i wonder how did the HKPF track each of these perps down?
And if the HKPF could track them all down, one imagine show the MSS could have also tracked down all the CIA/NED plants.
I think this might have been the only benefit to having all the swarms of rioters posing as journalists. They would have recorded countless hours of raw footage, which probably helped the police in identifying people like this as they would not have been fully clad all the time and were probably caught by their own cameras with their masks off at some point.
