Hong Kong’s national security law imposes the question: to flee or to stay?

Pavement Pieces · Hong Kong’s national security law imposes the question: to flee or to stay?

The proposal for a national security law in Hong Kong was passed in Beijing less than a month ago creating uncertainty for what is to come in the autonomous region.

After being returned to China from the United Kingdom in 1997, Hong Kong was supposed to be ruled under the “One Country, Two Systems” principle.

The law comes after a series of pro-democracy protests which started in March last year. Although the law is still being drafted, it is almost certain that it will give Beijing greater control over its special administrative region.
