A day after China approved a radical overhaul of Hong Kong's political system, Secretary of State Antony Blinken in a required report to Congress found that the financial hub"does not warrant different treatment under US law" from the mainland.

If we burn, you burn with us! NaziChina's is evil. AntiChina Tim_Formosa Beijing is no longer concerned about what the west think or criticise it. It knows that insofar it has politicians, businessmen, religious leaders, academics and media in its pocket, it can exert influence in the west. To stop it, we must stay united and decouple with China.
This pix tells you why we need electoral reform. The bridge has been 'caged' coz terrorists, supported by HK councillors, threw petrol bombs from there onto the road heading to the busiest tunnel. The billboard, at the entrance of that tunnel, says 'Uphold NS, Safeguard our home' Thank you US. CCP_is_terrorist HumanRightsViolations CCPLiedPeopleDied BoycottBeijing2022
US caused it. Paying people to foment chaos. Then leaves them behind declaring “not my business”. 傻逼 Our HK prosperity is not relying on USA.
Chiyuwong Hong Kong is not safe for investment. Totally controlled by terrorist XJP Isn't it wonderful HK has lost its original status? Blame the mop heads and traitors who destroyed the city during the CIA led riots. Mighty China crushed them all Thank you U.S. for standing with Hongkongers. Sadly everything in Hong Kong is completely under CCP’s control now.
CCP: 'I take all over control in Hong Kong now. You all shit up my internal affairs including the method election.' All expats: 'Goodbye Hong Kong under CCP distortion, I want my money and investment back to some safety place as it's no longer a freedom IFC.' Game over! The free world should follow. No Carrie Lam’s speaking slot at Davos next year please. She doesn’t deserve one for spreading more lies and propaganda. StandwithHongKong
Freedom of Tibet, Uighur, Mongolia, HK are totally suppressed by CCP. No freedom of speech, press. Manipulate Jurisdiction, education. Steal intelligence & privacy. Genocide in Xingjiang & later in HK. But remember, if world countries not stop CCP now. Then, Today HK, World Tmw.
