- A bill was proposed in HK that would give the central government a legal channel to prosecute serious criminals residing in HK.
- It was seen (rightly or wrongly) as an encroachment on HK's autonomy, protests ensued & the bill was killed within 2 weeks.
- 6 months later a bill is passed by a powerful foreign state that undermines HK's sovereignty & autonomy & could lead to sanctions that would decimate the HK economy & render it just another city in China.
- These kids are celebrating the "Hong Kong Freedom and Democracy Act" because it makes them feel warm & fuzzy.
Never go full Hong Kong.
