Hong Kong citizens reply to arguable safety regulation

Hong Kong residents have shared their feelings about a new national law, planned by China’s ruling Communist Party.

The law was submitted at the annual National People’s Congress, which largely rubber-stamps decisions already taken by the Communist leadership, but is still the most important political event of the year.

Hong Kong, a semi-autonomous region and an economic powerhouse, was required to introduce such a law after the handover from British control to Chinese rule in 1997.
