Is China pushing Hong Kong further away with its new security law? – video explainer

Beijing has imposed sweeping new national security legislation on Hong Kong, criminalising 'secession, subversion, terrorism and collusion with foreign forces'.

Critics fear the law will enable a crackdown on protest and dissent as China seeks to exert new levels of control over the semi-autonomous territory.

The Guardian's Beijing bureau chief, Lily Kuo, explains what this means for the city after a year of unrest.
