South China Morning Post video & report

Beijing has announced a national security law for Hong Kong at its annual week-long political meeting which began on May 22, 2020. While nothing is set in stone yet, the law is expected to ban secession, violence and terrorist acts which take place in Hong Kong and are aimed at toppling the central government. The resolution will be voted on by members of the National People’s Congress (NPC) on Thursday, May 28. It is widely expected to be passed by the country’s highly choreographed parliament.
