As Thousands Take To The Streets, Beijing Vows To Crack Down On Hong Kongers

The Chinese government is in a rush to assert more control of former British colony Hong Kong.

It's a continuation of China's efforts to increase control over Hong Kong following mass protests in 2019.

According to Business Insider, Beijing has pledged to impose new national security laws on the city without delay.

Critics worry that the new laws could hurt Hong Kong's independence and the city's position as a financial center.
