Said Sir Malcolm Rifkind: "Hong Kong's Chief Executive has the responsibility to do everything possible to prevent a massacre." I sign on to this statement.
Jimmy Lai should be released at once and any charges dropped. #StandWithHongKong twitter.com/BBCWorld/statu…..
China's UN mission slams UN rights chief Michelle #Bachelet who called for probe into Hong Kong police. Beijing hardliners have still not learned their lesson. They must think again.
Thread! PRC has detained 12 Hong Kongers at sea and taken them to the mainland. They must be brought back to Hong Kong. twitter.com/joshuawongcf/s…..
This is a very bad joke! Hong Kong government hires international police experts, but doesn't want to hear what they have to say! "#IPCC rejected experts’ request to comment on Hong Kong protest report"
The international friends of Hong Kong will have to step up their engagement. Beijing's effective abandonment of 'One country, two systems', its breach of a binding agreement, its exclusively repressive approach to the conflict must come with a price.
Why are we still talking about a "national security law"? That's not what it is. It is a "CCP takes complete control" law. amnesty.org/en/latest/news…..
