Hong Kong three years after the “National Security Law” came into force | DW News

Hong Kong used to be a liberal, permissive haven within Chinese territory. It was a place where people could demonstrate against the government. And where culture and art was relatively free. But since the 2020 National Security Laws were introduced, this freedom has been sharply reduced. And although public protests have dwindled in recent years, attention has turned to publications. Schools and libraries are being forced by authorities to remove books and films that feature political themes. Many people have fled – to among other places to the UK. Our correspondent Winnie Sung met Hong Kongers there who are safeguarding culture that’s banned at home.

And for more we talk to Tom Grundy. He is the editor-in-chief and founder of Hong Kong Free Press, a non-profit English-language news media outlet.
