Hong Kong’s Authoritarian National Security Law Forces Amnesty International Out Of Its Hong Kong Office

In a story by Breitbart on October 25th, 2021, it talks about how Amnesty International has decided to leave its Hong Kong office saying that Communist China’s oppressive “national security” law, imposed on Hong Kong to crush the 2019 pro-democracy movement, made shutting down regrettably necessary. Anjhula Mya Singh Bais, who is the current chair of Amnesty International, said on Monday (Oct.25th): This decision has been driven by Hong Kong’s national security law, which has made it effectively impossible for human rights organisations in Hong Kong to work freely and without fear of serious reprisals from the government. Hong Kong has long been an ideal regional base for international civil society organisations, but the recent targeting of local human rights and trade union groups signals an intensification of the authorities’ campaign to rid the city of all dissenting voices. It is increasingly difficult for us to keep operating in such an unstable environment.

Angles Callamard, the Amnesty International General Secretary, promised that her organisation would “continue to stand with the people of Hong Kong” during the “difficult days ahead.” Angles Callamard went on to say that we now have to move our Hong Kong operations to other Asia-Pacific regional offices as our work has become increasingly difficult and dangerous. The Chinese government illegally imposed Hong Kong’s national security law in June 2020 by circumventing Hong Kong’s legislature and violating the guarantee of autonomy given by Beijing when it took control of Hong Kong from the United Kingdom in 1997. The authoritarian dictatorship of China has gone back on its word to allow Hong Kong to keep its democracy and to govern itself, but no-one is particularly surprised, but almost everyone stays silent as the Communist regime does not allow for any dissent by anyone. Hopefully, now more and more people and governments will start to see for themselves what a tyrannical and draconian dictatorship the CCP really is.
