    Phá đám (chiêu này thấy quen quen ở đâu đây):

    Photo exhibition featuring Hong Kong protest images shut down in Macau
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...-down-in-macau

    The World Press Photo exhibition opened on 25 September and was scheduled to run until 18 October but was closed early.

    Local media quoted the government-run
    Macau Foundation denying any political pressure, and an organiser told local radio it was due to “internal management problems”, but declined to elaborate.

    The exhibition featured images of the Hong Kong pro-democracy protests which wracked the city through much of last year, taken by AFP photographer Nicolas Asfoiuri.

    The content of the exhibition – chosen by a jury from thousands of global photojournalism submissions – remains the same in every country it is displayed.

    Academics warn of ‘chilling effect’ of Hong Kong security law
    https://www.theguardian.com/educatio...g-security-law

    The academics say article 38 raises the unsettling prospect that students travelling through Hong Kong and China face being handed lengthy prison sentences on the basis of academic work deemed to be subversive by Chinese authorities.

    The signatories, representing 71 academic institutions across 16 countries, cite claims that China-related modules are being dropped and writings self-censored by students for fear of reprisals.

    Dr Andreas Fulda, a senior fellow at the University of Nottingham Asia Research Institute and one of the initiators of the letter, said: “Several students – both from the United Kingdom and from mainland China – have told me in private that they are concerned that comments made in class or essays will be used as evidence against them.


    He added: “It is widely known that the Chinese party-state is weaponising students to monitor their university instructors in mainland China and Hong Kong. Such attempts to instrumentalise students do not stop at China’s border. Professor Vanessa Frangville has revealed that the Chinese embassy in Brussels tried to hire Brussels campus students to express their disapproval of a Uighur demonstration in 2018.”


    A lecturer in Sinology at the University of Leipzig recently told the Hong Kong activist Glacier Kwong that “his students from Hong Kong, Taiwan and China asked if they could drop his class, because they worried about being associated with the criticism others made of the Chinese Communist party in class”.
    Đó chắc là khẩu nghiệp.

    Hồng kông bị thất sủng:

    Hong Kong takes back seat as China's Xi promotes neighbor as future 'model city'
    https://news.yahoo.com/hong-kong-tak...113151629.html

    China's President Xi Jinping praised the tech-hub city of Shenzhenin a landmark speech on Wednesday, leaving some puzzling over the future of nearby Hong Kong, as China's traditional global foothold.

    Xi said Shenzhen, often dubbed China's Silicon Valley and home to tech giants Huawei and Tencent, was making "historic leaps" and "achieving miracles."

    He also announced that the area would be given more leeway to pursue opening-up reforms and become a "model city for a strong socialist country."

    Once a small fishing village adjacent to Hong Kong, Shenzhen is now home to about 13 million and was transformed in 1980 by veteran Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, after he designated it a "Special Economic Zone," carving out capitalist privileges in the staunchly communist country.


    Analysts see the focus on Shenzhen, which now has a GDP higher than Hong Kong's, as a signpost to how China intends to manage its dizzying economic growth — with strict political dominance, while nearby economic powerhouse Hong Kong becomes less relevant.
    Chắc Hồng kông chưa đủ hồng.

    Hong Kong protester 'Grandma Wong’: I was held in mainland China for 14 months
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...-for-14-months

    Called “Grandma Wong” by her fellow activists and often spotted waving a British flag, the 64-year-old attended virtually every rally during the early days of the movement for greater democracy and police accountability, which kicked off in June 2019.

    She disappeared in August last year and maintained only sporadic contact with local media in the former British colony.

    Wong said she was held by Shenzhen authorities for “administrative detention” and “criminal detention” for a total of 45 days, without knowing what charges she was facing. “I was afraid I would die in the detention centre,” she said.

    When her stay in custody was over, she was asked to face a camera and declare that she had not been tortured by mainland authorities, and promise not to take media interviews or protest again. She was asked to confess in writing that her activism had been wrong. “The worst thing I did in my life is to write that confession ... but I had nothing to bargain with,” she said.

    The confessions did not win her freedom immediately. She was later sent on a five-day “patriotic tour” of Shaanxi province, where she had her picture taken holding the Chinese flag, and sang the national anthem. After that, she was told she would be released on bail pending trial for “picking quarrels and provoking trouble” – a catch-all term used by the government to target dissenters. But she was given no written documents on the charges.

    For a year after her release on bail, she was allowed to go only to her home in Shenzhen, and could not return to Hong Kong. Those conditions lapsed in late September.

    “I have no courage to step in Shenzhen again, at least for now, unless there is a radical change in the political situation,” Wong told reporters.


    “I won’t give up fighting,” Wong said. “After all, there will be sacrifice, otherwise ... the authoritarian system wouldn’t be changed.”
