FOR THIS WEEK’S installment of Radio New Bloom, editor Garrett Dee spoke with Vincent Wong. Vincent is a lawyer and research associate at the International Human Rights Program at the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Law, and a member of the Lausan Collective.
China’s National People’s Congress recently approved a proposal to pass national security legislation in a manner that would circumvent Hong Kong’s Legislative Council (LegCo). LegCo previously proposed passing national security legislation that would criminalize sedition against the Chinese government. We discussed the implications of this move and its effects on Hong Kong’s political autonomy with Vincent. Vincent recently wrote on national security legislation for Lausan in a co-written piece.
