#UnitedNations @UNHumanRights #Freedom #StandWithHongKong #InternationalLaw #HongKong #HongKongSecurityLaw @UN must take action. All past activities before the official date of the new law should not be the basis for these arrests because of the agreement with Britain.
Replying to @krislc
The ninth arrested today is Andy Li (left most). He appeared at a press conference with a delegation of international lawmakers last year who came to Hong Kong to observe the District Council election. (corrected: not LegCo election) hongkongfp.com/2019/12/04/in…

#DefendingHongKong #StandWithHongKong #HumanRights #Freedom #UnitedNations It is said not to talk about the 3 Ts while inside the main land - #Taiwan #Tibet #TiananmenSquareMassacre. Now the 4th: #HongKongSecurityLaw. There is fear that some will be tortured or "disappear."
And just now. 周庭⋯🕯 Chow Ting, Agnes, aged 23. Arrested in Hong Kong under the draconian “National Security Law”

The #UnitedNations was established to prevent an occurrence of Hitler, World Wars and the #Holocaust. Yet, it is passively watching #humanrights violations, increase in military presence in #Asia, and a new emerging form of global threat.

#HumanRights #Freedom The new law in effect is chilling. The world becomes a bystandard witnessing #HongKong freedom fighters get arrested knowing that some will "disappear" and "mysteriously" die. Is the #UnitedNations effective?
NOW: @JimmyLai, outspoken pro-democracy activist and owner of opposition newspapers @AppleDaily, has been arrested for "colluding with foreign powers" under the #NationalSecurityLaw in Hong Kong.

#StandWithHongKong Arrests of Jimmy Lai and others is history repeating itself of what has been instituted against Uyghurs, Tibetans and others. #UnitedNations needs to revamp how it qualifies member nations in light of #HumanRights and #freedom. nitter.fdn.fr/i/events/1292619…

Deeply concerned at China's proposals for legislation related to national security in Hong Kong. If imposed, @DominicRaab & I will explore options for a path to citizenship for BNO passport holders. UK will continue to defend the rights & freedoms of the people of Hong Kong.

Yes, NYC! More cities and states should follow their lead. 👏👏👏👏 #WordsMatter
THIS JUST IN: New York City just became the first major U.S. city to prohibit the use of the dehumanizing term "alien" in local laws, rules, and documents. From now on, the term will be "noncitizen."

..and let us not forget the unheard voices and spoken voices of #Koreans impacted by the #KoreanWar's devastation. US and #Russia #China split #SouthKorea before the war; not the choice of Koreans. Families were split.

...and let us not forget the unheard voices and spoken voices of #Koreans during the #KoreanWar that the world did not hear. Examples: - #NoGunRiMassacre: refugees died from US air attacks - Student soldiers, mostly teens: see film "71: Into the Fire" invidious.fdn.fr/watch?v=cooemxvh…

Stating that Hong Kong has a "high degree of autonomy" is still pending by @StateDept @SecPompeo; it is long overdue since 1997. US was swift in participating in WWI, Korean War Vietnam War and Middle East in the name of "freedom" #StandWithHongKong

What happens to people or in places around the world eventually effects all of us. Hong Kong matters. #StayWithHongKong #democracy #freedom
A new security law being imposed on Hong Kong by China could spell an end for the city’s unique freedoms. What makes the law so controversial and what do people fear the most?

A child's early years are the most important for cognitive development. But the education gap between rich and poor children is widening econ.st/2WKICUN

A doctor created a deportation plan for his family in case he gets sick, can't work and loses his H-1B visa. @agnesconstante writes about the added pandemic plight immigrant doctors face largely due to the country's massive visa backlog nbcnews.com/news/asian-ameri…
