    Can China quell dissent in Hong Kong?



    China is cracking down hard on the popular democratic movement in the former British colony.

    Chinexit:

    Number of Hong Kong residents moving to Taiwan nearly doubles in 2020
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...oubles-in-2020

    n 2020, the Taiwan government issued 10,813 residence permits and 1,576 settlement permits to people from Hong Kong, according to the immigration department. The figure is almost double that of 2019, when 5,858 residence permits and 1,474 settlement permits were issued. Figures dating back to 2016 hovered around 5,100 residence or settlement permits annually.

    The Taiwan government’s mainland affairs council told the Guardian at least 1,300 permits of either kind were issued in the month of December alone.

    Hong Kong census data released last week revealed a net loss in population for the city, with provisional estimates finding Hong Kong’s population to be 7,474,200 at the end of 2020, a decrease of 46,500, or 0.6% from the previous year.


    Numerous new pathways for Hongkongers to leave the city have been created in response to authorities’ efforts to crush dissent and erase opposition movements. Australian data from January showed 2,500 Hong Kong nationals in the country had their visas extended and more than 500 had applied for visas to resettle. In the UK, hundreds of thousands are expected to move via a program to resettle people with British National (Overseas) passports.


    Taiwan is a popular choice too. A poll in mid-2020, published in Foreign Policy, found half of all respondents considered leaving Hong Kong, and a third of that group identified Taiwan – which is geographically and culturally close – as a preferred destination.


    Taiwan’s government – which itself faces Beijing threats to take Taiwan, potentially by force – has repeatedly expressed its support for people in Hong Kong, including protesters who the foreign minister, Joseph Wu, has called “freedom fighters”.


    In mid-2020 it established the Taiwan-Hong Kong Services and Exchange Office, which proffered to help Hongkongers resettle in Taiwan, but only if they could make their own way there. Some have attempted drastic measures to get to Taiwan, like the group of activists caught and jailed in China after attempting to travel by boat.


    Opposition parties and non-government groups have called for the government to go further in their assistance, or at least to increase transparency around the office, which is governed by regulations only stipulating “necessary aid”.


    Taiwan has amended laws to decriminalise the act of arriving unlawfully to seek political asylum but has no dedicated refugee program, case review process or streamlined support for asylum seekers in Taiwan, as individuals are dealt with on a case-by-case basis.

    Ho Chih-yung, KMT party spokesman said the lack of formal asylum laws and the “unwillingness” of the ruling Democratic Progressive party to open borders to Hong Kong refugees meant it was “an exaggeration to say that Taiwan can substantially support the Hong Kong protesters”.

    Hong Kong defendants taken away by ambulance during marathon bail hearing
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...urity-hospital

    A bail hearing for 47 campaigners, election candidates and activists charged with national security offences in Hong Kong has resumed after at least four defendants were taken away by ambulance during Monday’s marathon session, which lasted until 3am.The group have been charged under Hong Kong’s national security law with conspiracy to commit subversion in relation to an unofficial pan-democratic primary poll held last year before legislative elections that were later postponed.

    Prosecutors sought to have bail denied and the case adjourned for three months to allow further time for investigation. The defence objected, questioning why charges had been laid if the case was so far off readiness. By 11pm on Monday, just six submissions had been processed.

    The democrat and district councillor Clarisse Yeung fainted in the courtroom at about 1.45am and was taken to hospital. The businessman Mike Lam, district councillor Roy Tam and former legislator Leung Kwok-hung “Long Hair” were also taken away by ambulance, according to local media. A co-defendant, Andy Chui Chi-kin, was reportedly admitted to hospital for unknown reasons before Monday’s hearing.


    A post on Yeung’s Facebook page said she had eaten lunch at midday and had not been given food again until midnight because of long court delays. She was on a saline drip and awaiting a CT scan on Tuesday, it said.


    The court had struggled to accommodate all members of the prosecution, defence team, and the 47 charged individuals. There were claims that some defendants could not speak to their legal teams, and further complications caused by the unexpected arrest of one defence lawyer, reportedly on suspicion of obstructing officers.


    More than 1,000 supporters gathered outside the court on Monday, protesting against the detention of what they call the “political prisoners”. The South China Morning Post reported 42 people had been fined for violating Covid-19 gathering rules, and the crowds did not return the next day.

    Khán chiến:

    Beijing anger as pro-democracy documentary wins Oscar-nomination

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/2021/apr/18/beijing-anger-as-pro-democracy-documentary-wins-oscar-nomination

    Anders Hammer moved to Hong Kong in 2019 to capture a David versus Goliath battle on camera, filming pro-democracy protesters in the city taking on autocrats in Beijing.

    Little over a year later he became an inadvertent protagonist in that fight, when his low budget documentary Do Not Split won an Oscar nomination.

    Hammer is bemused at the lengths to which China has gone to stop its citizens catching even a brief glimpse of his latest film. In the rest of the world, that move has earned him the type of press coverage he could never have dreamt of.

    “We are part of a category, short documentaries, which is not normally one that gets most attention [in Oscar coverage],” he said. “It’s ironic Beijing is actually at this point promoting our documentary.”


    Millions marched in peace through Hong Kong’s streets in the summer of 2019, originally spurred by anger at a law that would have allowed the city to extradite people to face trial in the mainland’s opaque and judicial system.

    As the protests expanded into broader demands for democracy, the police response became increasingly brutal. By the end of the year students were besieged in their university campus, stuffing molotov cocktails to take on police who were now liberal with their use of tear gas, rubber bullets and even live ammunition.


    Chinese authorities, apparently enraged or worried by the platform the star-studded evening might give the film, and by long-deleted comments from best director nominee Chloé Zhao, has reportedly told local media not to broadcast the ceremony live, and play down all coverage of the awards.

    The Norwegian director believes Beijing’s fear of a short documentary, even after this comprehensive crackdown, is a tribute to the protest movement’s enduring power.

    Hong Kong passes law that can stop people leaving
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...people-leaving

    Hong Kong has passed a new immigration law that includes powers to stop people entering or leaving the city, raising fears of Chinese mainland-style “exit bans” in the international business hub.

    Activists, lawyers and some business figures have sounded the alarm over provisions in the bill, including one allowing the city’s immigration chief to bar people from boarding planes to and from the city. No court order is required and there is no recourse to appeal. The city’s bar association (HKBA) said the bill’s wording gave “apparently unfettered power” to the immigration director.

    Chinese man seeking ‘freedom and equality’ says he travelled to Taiwan in dinghy
    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...iwan-in-dinghy

    Taichung Port police officers detained the man, surnamed Zhou, after they received reports of a man behaving suspiciously near the docks. A police spokesperson said Zhou told officers he had travelled from Quanzhou in Fujian province, in a 2.6m long rubber dinghy he’d bought online, powered by an outboard motor.

    The 180km journey took about 10 hours, they said, through the highly militarised Taiwan Strait, which is patrolled by both Taiwanese and Chinese authorities.

    In a video of the arrest posted online, police officers can be heard asking Zhou “did you come over for freedom?” Zhou replies: “Yes, I came by boat”.

    “Taiwan has more freedom and equality,” he said.
    Asked if life is bad in China, Zhou said he believed life in China “is all kinds of bad”.
