China’s Rebel City: The Hong Kong Protests

Hong Kong's biggest political crisis since its return to mainland China, starts with an ill-conceived plan by the government for an extradition law to allow the transfer of suspects for trial to Taiwan, Macau and mainland China. It sparks a massive public backlash, drawing millions of protesters onto the streets. By the time the government agrees to drop the extradition bill, events on the streets have overtaken them and Hong Kong spirals out of control. The police, using tear gas and firing rubber bullets to disperse the crowds, find themselves overwhelmed by public resentment and hatred.

Hong Kong protests – China’s Rebel City: Part 4 – Protests Muzzled

The coronavirus pandemic brings a halt to most anti-government protests, and Beijing is determined not to allow a repeat of the past year’s chaos. It imposes a far-reaching national security law on Hong Kong, banning acts of subversion, secession, terrorism and colluding with foreign forces. The new legal regime is instantly effective, almost entirely wiping out the protests. But society remains fractured, the old resentments run deep, and the future is uncertain.

Hong Kong protests – China’s Rebel City: Part 3 – Hong Kong on Fire

A teenage boy is shot by police on China's National Day, as clashes intensify between hardcore Hong Kong protesters and police. The government gives in to a key protest demand and withdraws its extradition bill, but the protesters now have a list of other demands that Hong Kong's leader finds impossible to meet. University campuses become war zones, as student protesters and radicals occupy them. Police surround protesters holed up at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University in a siege that lasts nearly two weeks before the last holdouts abandon the campus.

Hong Kong protests – China’s Rebel City: Part 2 – Battle Lines Drawn

In the second part of the South China Morning Post documentary on Hong Kong’s anti-government protests, the gulf between the two opposing sides widens. With neither the government nor protesters willing to compromise, Hong Kong's worst political crisis since its return from British to Chinese rule in 1997 spirals out of control. Angry demonstrators surround, storm and vandalise the city’s legislature, the seat of elected authority. The police, using tear gas and firing rubber bullets to disperse the crowds, find themselves overwhelmed by public resentment and hatred. And it keeps getting worse.

Hong Kong protests – China’s Rebel City: Part 1 – Marching into the Unknown

In the first part of the South China Morning Post documentary on Hong Kong’s anti-government protests, we explore the origins of the city's biggest political crisis and social upheaval since its return from British to Chinese rule in 1997. It all begins in March 2019 with a plan by the Hong Kong government for an extradition law to allow the transfer of suspects for trial to Taiwan, Macau and, more controversially, the Chinese mainland. It sparks a massive public backlash, drawing millions of protesters onto the streets and piling pressure on Hong Kong's leader, Carrie Lam, who refuses to back down. Thousands seeking to stop the passage of the law block roads leading to the legislature. It marks the beginning of violent clashes with police and a descent into unprecedented chaos.

Australia’s cap on weekly entries leaves citizens stranded abroad during Covid-19 pandemic

Many Australian citizens have found themselves unable to return home as  stringent caps on international arrivals went into effect to halt the spread of Covid-19. The Australian government now limits the number of incoming passengers to just 4,000 per week, with most flights restricted to no more than about 30 people. Before the pandemic, an estimated 1 million Australians lived overseas, 100,000 of them in Hong Kong alone. The restrictions have left many of them stranded abroad, unable to book flights or unable to afford a spike in prices that has resulted from the caps.

What you should know about China's new national security law for Hong Kong

China has imposed a sweeping national security law for Hong Kong that prohibits acts of secession, subversion, terrorism and collusion with a foreign power in the city. Details of the law were revealed as it went into effect late on June 30, 2020. The legislation has sparked widespread concern about its implications, despite assurances from officials who say it only targets a small minority in the city. The Post looks at how various parties could be affected under the law.

Hong Kong police arrest 10 under new national security law

Hong Kong police say 10 people were arrested on July 1, 2020, under the city’s new national security law. It was the first time the police force exercised their new powers under the contentious legislation enacted the previous day by Chinese mainland authorities. The 10 were among about 370 people detained mainly for taking part in illegal assemblies, disorderly conduct and possession of offensive weapons. Despite the new risk of prosecution, thousands of anti-government protesters took to the streets to protest against the new law, openly defying a Covid-19 ban on the annual July 1 march.

Thousands of people gathered in Hong Kong on July 1, 2020, expressing anger over Beijing's national security law for the city, as it marked 23 years since its handover from British to Chinese rule. Police had banned the annual protest march organised by pro-democracy activists, citing concerns over Covid-19 and violence in previous demonstrations.

Thousands of Hongkongers defy ban and gather to mark Tiananmen anniversary

Hong Kong marked the 31st anniversary of the Tiananmen Square crackdown amid a police ban against the annual Victoria Park vigil because of Covid-19 social distancing restrictions. Thousands defied the ban and gathered in the park anyway, knocking down steel barriers and entering the football pitches. Elsewhere in the city, people gathered to light candles and held a moment of silence to commemorate those who died in the crackdown on June 4, 1989. The vigils were largely peaceful, but scuffles broke out in Mong Kok district in Kowloon shortly after 9pm.

The ghost net hunter: a Hong Kong diver’s quest to rid the oceans of a deadly killer

Abandoned fishing nets, known as ghost nets, make up 10 per cent of all marine trash. Every year 640,00 tonnes (705,500 tons) of the nets enter the oceans, ensnaring wildlife and devastating marine ecosystems. Hong Kong diver Harry Chan has made it his life’s mission to fight ghost nets, and so far he and his team of volunteers have removed 60-70 tonnes of such debris from Hong Kong waters. “I have been tangled quite a few times,” Chan says, admitting that on a few occasions he almost got killed. “But some things, someone has to do it.”

Costumed Hongkonger hits the road in hopes of making coronavirus isolation as easy as riding a bike

Before you can see his bike, you hear strains of cha-cha-chá music, or old songs in Cantonese or Japanese. Moments later, Ah Tse rolls into view, perhaps dressed as Dyna from Ultraman, on board his red bicycle labelled “Ferrari”. Tse is something of an attraction for visitors to Mui Wo, a rural town on the eastern coast of Hong Kong’s Lantau Island. But if you ask him about his pastime, he’s just “doing his thing” like most people, especially when it comes to riding out the isolation of a global coronavirus pandemic.

Food security of world’s poorest communities threatened by Covid-19 pandemic, warns UN food body

The  World Food Programme (WFP) has warned that the Covid-19 pandemic could threaten food security for the world’s poorest communities. Lockdowns and economic downturns that will affect developing nations the most, will make it difficult for the poor to access or pay for food. The UN food agency says food supplies around the globe remain stable for now, and that those most in need of help are getting support. But WFP Acting Director of Supply Chain, John Crisci, says if more nations stockpile food supplies and ban exports of staples such as rice, wheat and grains, the “health crisis will become a food crisis.’
