VIDEO: Newsroom Raid Under New Communist National Security Law, People Push Back on British Backed Hong Kong Police

Tuesday, after a Hong Kong Media Icon Jimmy Lia of Apple Daily, was arrested,  nother trusted media organization in, the Hong Kong Free Press, (HKFP) posted a video of British backed Hong Kong police raiding newsroom including the desks of journalists and other employees, searching for material that is not in compliance with the Chinese Communist Party’s new National Security Laws.

“Teenagers in HK are just looking for freedom, but now we can’t even talk about the slogan ‘Fight for freedom, stand with Hong Kong’ on the street because the slogan violates National Security Law,” a student told HKFP.

A message is being sent that the CCP is taking the new law very seriously and to a new level of control.

“Officers are seen examining staffers’ desks inside Apple Daily’s HQ, contradicting assurances from the National Security Department’s Steve Li that journalistic materials would not be searched. Clip: Apple Daily via StandNews,” HKFP wrote.

Reaction to the arrests on Monday and the raids on Tuesday show the people are not giving up the freedom of Speech and Media rights easily.  A group raised money to prosecute the Hong Kong Police who are enforcing the  CCP law.

Hong Kong has been the location of populist uprisings against the Chinese Communist Party, attempting to assert and maintain their independence. This move is startling to people who cherish Hong Kong’s freedom of speech rights.

Some people saw the raid a message to other news organizations.

Another form of pushback was confirmed that the people were buying up stock in the Media company of Jimmy Lai, to show support.

HKFP reported that searching the desks was not included in the warrant that the Police got Tuesday.

In Hong Kong there are rising tension over treatment of pro-Democracy local activists by British backed Police because of beatings and other violent treatment of activists.

Some Democracy activists charge the British backed police force as enforcing the CCP’s new National Secuirty Laws.

Scuffles between police and student activists have raged in the streets of Hong Kong for close to a year.
