Hong Kong pro-democracy lawmakers resign en masse

Hong Kong pro-democracy lawmakers resign en masse 1

 

The entirety of Hong Kong's elected pro-democracy opposition announced its resignation in protest over the expulsion of four lawmakers. The dramatic move comes after Beijing passed a resolution giving local authorities broad new powers to quash dissent, likely signaling the end of political opposition in the city.

  1. It’s funny that 80% of this video can be use for US right now!

  2. This is about China and Hong Kong, everything isn’t about the USA. How narcissistic we are.

    When she pronounces it “Chine-er”

  4. “not being patriotic enough”

    We almost went china mode with America

  5. Xi makes the first bid to exploit the power vacuum in Washington’s security establishment and stalled transition. I expect more tests from other places while a sick narcissist stews in isolation.

    • @Heemie You think the US should invade Hong Kong? YOU MORON.

    • @dave fisher So your only comeback to a cogent argument is an insult, huh? That says a lot about you. No where in my response to you did I remotely suggest invading any county. DIPLOMACY and WORDS are still effective tools to a national leader who garners respect around the world and can use them both effectively. Someone such as yourself, and clearly your self-serving savior Trump, don’t understand such things and can only resort to childish name calling and insults which demonstrates your inability to play on the adults’ playing field. Have fun in your sandbox while the rest of us actually try to solve the grown folks problems of the world. Be blessed little one. 🙏🏽

    • @dave fisher More of the same, huh. 🙄🙄🙄 Your lame duck president will do absolutely nothing as a private citizen which is what he’ll become on January 20th 2021 at noon. The great grifting of America and his childish madness will finally be over and this country can get back on track to serving the needs of the American people and not lining Donald Trump and his thieving kid’s pockets. Again, be blessed little one 🙏🏽

    • @jdnb86 🤔 uhhh, none

    • Delaying the transition team gives Xi and other dictators even more power.

  6. Yet the US refused to take any one of these “pro- democracy “ people.

    Snowden…where are you.

  7. At the mean time, Secretary of the State is declaring smooth transition into the 2nd Trump administration.

      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=087a1VivFJ0 WWII Veterans worldwide WARNED of TRUMPlike FASCISTS. Our WW2 vets were still warm in their graves when fascist Trump reared his ugly head. They WARNED us of these evil men and they asked of us one thing…TO NEVER FORGET. To NEVER FORGET the sacrifice they made for DEMOCRACY and the world so that WE would never have to remove an evil man like Hitler again. And here we are. AGAIN!

      @Anthony leave China alone. China won fair and square trade that was set up by America. Don’t be cry babies. Trade is not supposed to be done at the barrel of a gun or we call it UNFAIR trade.

    • @vulcan stein How you ask? EVIDENCE. Where is it? Show one example… Real fact based voter fraud where did it happen? I’ll be here waiting for a reply which I already KNOW the answer. How would a ballot be ran through a machine multiple times? They are assigned, god some people have no critical thinking skills whatsoever. Trump told his base to vote twice… Irony, hypocrisy, idiocracy…

      Trump fired the Secretary of State. WTF are you on about?
      Hey Donald Trump, YOU’RE FIRED. You have until January 19th to get the FK out of our White House. Take all your sycophantic cult with you as well.

  10. Eventually “my” CNN is beginning to pick up on international news. Thank you!

  11. The world is moving into dangerous territory with the amount of power the autocrats in the world are doing

    • Western countries like to judge and interfere and even drive those pro-democrats. it reminds me my mum asks me to marry someone which I don’t like but she thinks I will be happy in my rest of my life but she doesn’t care if I may suffer.

    • And half the country voted for more of this 🤮

    • Yeah true
      Hey how is trump doing ?

    • @Fred Coffee how many more people suffer under a government that doesn’t put them in prison for speaking ill of that government? Sure if you grow up in a country controlled by a a dictator/ communist government you probably follow the rules and fall in line so you are not jailed or executed. But doesn’t the US have an obligation as one of the most powerful nations in history to liberate those people from an oppressive government? Even if they have no concept of freedom/ democracy?

    • @Derrick Benz yeah? Well thank your damn 2016 president Trump for that. We still currently live under his policies and military decisions. tramp literally played battleship all summer long. Can’t fight a war, let alone run a country!

    USA gave china permission to do to hong kong what agent orange is doing to elections here – except china is not incompetent like cult-45.

    • @Anden Ekadi I live in Europe. We do not experience the mental and physical anguish on a daily mass in quite the scale as you do in America because there are no weapons so there are no weapons to be afraid of so there are no killings so there is growth and respect for each other, or even indifference. But NEVER fear! Go to a shooting range or play with your sons plastic weapon. Or write.

    • @Anden Ekadi WE LEARN FROM HISTORY!

    • @BTone Major You keep safe too. See you there! 😀👍 (No weapons here. Shifting to solar power, as fast as I can afford panels)

    • @BTone Major That’s funny… Because I recall seeing some news about 3 recent Islamist terrorist attacks in Europe–2 in France where two people were beheaded and others stabbed and a *shooting* in Vienna.

      https://www.nytimes.com/2020/11/11/world/europe/austria-kurz-terrorism.html

      Not to mention ever since guns have been near universally banned in the UK, knife crimes have gone up.

      But yes, keep living in your LaLaLand where it doesn’t matter if Leftist ideology doesn’t work in _practice,_ because it works in _theory._ I don’t think “learning from history” means what you think it does 😂

    • @BTone Major Also, at least 11,000 witnesses have come forward with voter fraud allegations. “Conald ‘Cult-45’ Drumpf” aint going nowhere anytime soon.

    AMERICA CANNOT CONTINUE TO LET TRUMP DO WHAT HE WANTS.
    AMERICA MUST HAVE ANOTHER PLAN TO GET TRUMP OUT SINCE HE WILL NOT CONCEDE.
    WHY IS AMERICA WAITING FOR HIM TO CONCEDE?
    LOOK LIKE HE’S TRYING TO TAKE AMERICA DOWN.
    CAN HE BE PROSECUTED?

    • The world cannot let the USA do want it wants is the question you should be asking. Trump is no different from Obama , Clinton, Trump , Bush = war criminals who should be prosecuted in The Hague.

    • I agree with you. Trump need to be removed now.

    • The other president you mentioned understands democracy and left with dignity. Trump is not like them. So he should be removed

  15. So….when germany invaded france, they surrendered to protest?

  16. Best news in years. Good for Hong Kong people.

    I feel this is what people mean when they ask “do you think democracy is worth fighting for ?” And it’s sad to see … obviously not .

    • Congratulations to HK!!!!I guess it is extraordinary good news for all HK citizens because all these small group of troublemaker legco members have done nothing good and constructive to Hong Kong when they are in office . HK will become better and better when they are out of LEGCO office!!! Well done by the central Govt of HK and CHINA this year without too much fear about the political threat from some crooked politicians of usa or the west !!! CHEERS for all Chinese Citizens!!!
      Hope these trouble makers will never run election to harm HK again!! God bless HK

  18. “the freedoms the citizens here enjoyed 6 months ago have defacto disappeared” Meanwhile the president of America tramples all over American citizens freedoms and right by denying their votes

    There’s no confusion. Trump lost. Everyone knows he lost but he’s taking this opportunity to fleece his supporters for donations to “fight in court”.

  20. Great news. If these lawmakers don’t consider themselves Chinese, they should not stay in the government.
