#Breaking #THREAD: An official document of the tailor-made national security bill is revealed. The bill is deemed to be a message that the Communist Party is trying to undermine the civil liberties the city has known since the 1997 British handover. #HongKongProtests #antiELAB
Called Draft decision on establishing and improving the legal system and enforcement mechanisms for the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) to safeguard national security, the law is introduced because of “the increasingly notable national security risks” in the city.
According to point 3, Hong Kong’s executive, legislative and judicial branches shall “prevent, stop and punish” any activities that threaten national sovereignty in accordance with established rules. It has not clearly indicated whether the rules refer to Basic Law Article 23.

Eleven months after the #antiELAB protests began in earnest, the Independent Police Complaints Council's study into the events has been completed and its report has been released.

A summary of highlights to follow in this thread…
The IPCC concludes that accusations of police-triad collusion on July 21, the incident which prompted the most complaints to the body, require "serious evidence but none
has been offered."

Chapter 10 of the report does acknowledge "missed opportunities for early intervention."
Among those missed opportunities was the decision made by the quick response team not to stop white-shirted individuals on sight in the immediate aftermath of the violence in Yuen Long MTR station. The IPCC concludes that the officers should have stopped and questioned them.

NOW TV has reported on some leaked findings of the Independent Police Complaints Council's study into the #antiELAB protests, saying that the report has been submitted to the Chief Executive and may be published as early as Friday

Summary below:…
As a reminder, the study covered key protest dates in 2019, including June 9, June 12, July 1, July 21, August 11 and August 31. Apart from those dates, the study also covered the police's use of the San Uk Ling Holding Centre to detain protesters.
On July 21, the report concludes that the police underestimated prior intelligence, including messages reminding Yuen Long residents not to go out, and did not pay enough attention when white-shirted people started to gather in order to make an appropriate deployment of officers.

Sunday's march is the first organised by the Civil Human Rights Front in months to receive #HongKong police approval. Police called on participants to stay peaceful.

Over the months, police often banned marches and cancelled rally approvals last-minute.

The police approval letter for Sunday's march lasts from 12-6pm for the gathering in Victoria Park's grass lawn, and from 3-10pm for the march to Central's Chater Road.

Police say they will only open three Hennessy Road carriage-lanes plus the tramways.

Note 18: I am just brokenhearted

"Hello, I am a 4th year university student in the mainland. I want to submit a piece about what I’ve experienced emotionally since I started to follow the news about Hong Kong.

"I started to follow the HK issue since summer began. Apart from sadness, I am also full of respect for Hong Kongers.

"It’s hard to imagine anyone in the mainland, from any age group, pursuing something non-materialistic with this kind of courage. I think the Chinese people would only call this ‘idiocy'.

It's 2 am here in #Taipei, yet I'm sitting in front of my laptop, trying to type out all my feelings after some rather upsetting conversation with my parents. Tonight is not the first time that we argued about my career choice, but it is the first time that I felt ...
... that maybe they will never come to appreciate what I do and why I choose to do it. Almost a year ago, I shared a long thread here, talking about my mom asking me to keep a low profile and stay away from writing about topics that might upset #Beijing.
That time, the conversation ended in an upbeat, as I somehow seemed to successfully convince her to put her support behind my decisions. But almost a year later, similar requests came up again during our weekly chat on the phone, and this time, she and my dad both seemed ...

Sebuah panduan taktik para demonstran di Hongkong ketika berunjuk rasa. Panduan yang mungkin akan berguna saat melakukan aksi turun ke jalan.

Cara meredam gas air mata: jangan lupa bawa tumbler, tak lupa sarung tangan anti panas.
Jangan lupa bawa sarung tangan anti-panas. Suhu proyektil gas air mata yang baru ditembakkan bisa capai 70 derajat. Cukup buat kulitmu terkelupas.

#AntiELAB protesters are filling up Central’s Chater Garden yet again today for a rally calling on US Congress to pass the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, a proposed bill to freeze the assets of local officials working against civic feeedoms and to bar them from the US.
The dress code for today is “smart casual.” Or in this case, black tie.
A new set of chants, all in English, is being airdropped by protesters today along with the lyrics to the US national anthem and other patriotic hymns.

BREAKING NEWS - carrie lam(b) HAS NOT FORMALLY WITHDRAWN THE EXTRADITION BILL. Her statement says she will propose withdrawing the bill at the next LegCo meeting after October 1st. She is as slippery as her boss. Remember, xi has a majority of votes bought in the LegCo if it 1/
Comes to a vote. Thanks to @BaldingsWorld for parsing through the disgraced leader’s remarks. @Reuters @bloomberg @EpochTimes She is simply trying to get past October 1st and the commie military parade praising xi. #HKexit #AntiELAB
lamb’s office says the proposal will be withdrawn with no vote when the LegCo resumes in mid-October. How convenient for carrie and xi that this date in the future is after Beijing’s key anniversary. Leung is “optimistic about its target of resuming operation in mid-October”
