HK Police Arrest 300+ Protesters Marching Against the New Security Law | Epoch News
On July 1, the National Security Law was implemented in Hong Kong causing Hongkongers to protest on the streets. Hong Kong police fired pepper spray, tear gas, water cannons, and made over 370 arrests.
On late June 30, after ceremonial votes by China’s rubber-stamp legislature, the National People’s Congress (NPC), the national security law went into effect. The law criminalizes individuals for any acts of subversion, secession, terrorism, and collusion with foreign forces, with maximum penalties of life imprisonment.
Large crowds swarmed the area of Causeway Bay where the march was due to start. But for the first time since mass protests began in June last year, protesters were being targeted for chanting slogans such as “Hong Kong Independence, the Only Way Out.” At around 2:20 p.m., Hong Kong police warned in a Facebook post that such slogans could “incite or abet” others to commit “secession” and thus violate the national security law.
According to police, a man was arrested for possessing a banner with words “Hong Kong Independence.” Then, a woman was arrested at around 3 p.m. for holding up a placard written with “Hong Kong Independence”. Her placard was attached by a British national flag and a U.S. flag.
