Hong Kong is once again braced for a long protest. Thousands took to the streets to protest against China`s planned national security law for the city. Police in Hong Kong have fired tear gas and used a water cannon and pepper spray to disperse thousands of people protesting against Beijing’s plan to impose national security law. This is the biggest protest since COVID-19 lockdowns began.

Demonstrators have set up makeshift barricades and chanted slogans such as “Five demands, not one less”. This is in reference to their demands from the government. They are also demanding an investigation of alleged police brutality against anti-government protesters last year.

The United States, Australia, Britain, Canada, and others have reportedly expressed concerns about the legislation. Taiwan too has promised ‘Necessary Assistance’ to Hong Kong‘s people. President Tsai Ing-wen said the proposed legislation was a serious threat to Hong Kong’s freedoms and judicial independence.

China has accused supporters of Taiwan independence of colluding with the protesters.
