China Briefing by Wang Xiangwei

In Hong Kong, can you be a patriot and criticise the Communist Party? Definitely

  • Beijing’s moves to tighten its grip on the city have raised concerns over the rights and freedoms of the city’s 7.5 million residents, as promised by Deng Xiaoping
  • But as long as Hongkongers don’t cross certain red lines, they should be allowed to express their diverse opinions without fear of being labelled as unpatriotic or even worse
