Global community should boost WHO's financial support after United States exit: China

China: US protests show 'chronic disease' of racism, American hypocrisy

China: US protests show 'chronic disease' of racism, American hypocrisy

Organiser Lee Cheuk-yan, chair of the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China, expressed disappointment and urged people to light candles individually and observe a moment of silence.

"Freedom loving people around the world must stand with the rule of law and hold to account the Chine Communist Party, which has flagrantly broken its promises to the people of Hong Kong", Ortagus had shared earlier.

Beijing has always been infuriated by criticism from Western capitals, especially Washington, over its handling of the pro-democracy protests that shook Hong Kong a year ago.

The US protest follows months of often violent protests in Hong Kong, particularly since Beijing's declaration it would impose national security laws on the semi-autonomous region.

Global markets sank Friday as investors waited for Trump's response to Beijing's security law on Hong Kong.

Without the autonomy necessary for special treatment, Trump instructed his administration to begin the process of eliminating policy exemptions for Hong Kong. According to a May 29 briefing by the U.S.

When asked about Trump severing ties with the United Nations agency, Zhao said the USA was "selfish, responsibility-shirking behavior" that undermines global efforts to fight COVID-19. The threat of so-called sanctions over national security legislation for Hong Kong has demonstrated that the United States sees Hong Kong as a pawn to contain China's development.

"Victims of communism will always find refuge in the United States", Sasse added.

Both Chinese research centers said the vaccine could potentially not be ready for distribution until early 2021. It's hoped mass production will begin if the trials are successful and the vaccine gets regulatory approval.

Ms Tai, 24, said the BNO passport is a Plan B for Hong Kongers who are anxious about losing their freedoms as China strengthens its control over the city.

The press release does not outline what kind of documentation will be needed by Hongkongers to claim asylum in the United States.

China's leaders recently moved to impose sweeping new national security legislation on the Asian financial hub following months of violent pro-democracy protests past year.

Beijing warned Washington Monday of retaliation after President Donald Trump announced restrictions on Chinese students in the USA in protest against a new national security law in Hong Kong.

Protestors are pictured clashing with police in Philadelphia. The official said such steps were necessary given that the Asian financial hub had witnessed rampant protests from "Hong Kong independence" organizations and violent radicals, as well as blatant interference from external forces. The body has no investigative powers and can not call on or protect its own witnesses. "The definition of subversion under the national security law is broad and this means room for (this kind of) activities would be narrowed".

"Nothing that has happened since the market closed on Friday has been market-positive", said Art Hogan, chief market strategist at National Securities.

Chinese diplomats and state media have seized on the violent unrest sparked by the death of George Floyd to accuse the USA of hypocrisy and compare American protesters with pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong. Activists fear it will be used by Beijing to quash dissent in the territory.

CHRF, in a May 31 statement, said that the award belonged to all those who have taken part in the ongoing protest for basic freedoms in the city.
