[This year might be the last year of annual #TiananmenVigil in #Hongkong]

1. 31 years ago, Beijing crushed dissents with tanks and guns. 31 years later, Beijing is ripping out our democratic aspiration with a tyrannical law.
2. At the time when #Beijing is unilaterally imposing the draconian #NationalSecurityLaw upon #Hongkong, this year might be the last year that Hongkongers can talk about #TiananmenSquareMassacre publicly.
3. Even before this evil law is implemented, #HKgov has already tightened its grip by banning this years’ candlelight vigil for the first time in 30 years. To block #Hongkongers from joining the vigil, the venue was locked down w/ barricades, with thousands of #hkpolice deployed.
4. The law is just the stepping stone for more interventions from #Beijing. With its ill-defined scope, the law will doubtlessly become the new weapon to crush dissents. With the new #secretpolice agency, Beijing can enforce #China's law in the territory of #HK.
5. Arbitrary arrests, censorship and Chinese-styled snitching culture will become ubiquitous in Hong Kong. Under its #wolfwarrior warrior diplomacy and the ambiguously defined "foreign forces", even foreign investors and ex-pats may fall victim to the new autocratic law.
6. To safeguard the city's democratic aspirations, civil liberties, and the last hope to remember the atrocity publicly in the future, I call upon the world leaders to take actions to urge #China to withdraw this evil law.
