[NTDTV, Beijing time, July 01, 2022]July 1 this year marks the 25th anniversary of the handover of Hong Kong sovereignty to the Chinese Communist Party. Xi Jinping and his wife have already arrived in Hong Kong, but (June) 30 also ushered in typhoon “Furong”. Under the tightened control of the CCP, the “July 1st” demonstrations are gone forever, and Hong Kong citizens are worried about the future.

On the eve of July 1st, Xi Jinping and his wife arrived in Hong Kong by high-speed rail. The outgoing Hong Kong Chief Executive Carrie Lam was greeted at the station.

This is Xi Jinping’s first visit to Hong Kong since the implementation of the national security law, and his first overseas visit since the outbreak of the CCP virus. Xi Jinping will attend the 25th anniversary of the handover of Hong Kong’s sovereignty and the inauguration of the sixth-term government of the SAR on July 1.

Authorities deployed tight security and conducted stop-and-searches.

Hong Kong citizens are worried about the future.

Karis Ho, a Hong Kong resident: “He (Xi Jinping) has actually come here this year to fight a lot. Basically, the guards are stronger (tighter) than in previous years, because on the contrary, he seems to be a very sensitive person.”

Some pro-democracy activists were also interviewed by the Hong Kong government’s National Security Police.

Chen Poying, chairman of the Hong Kong Social Democracy Association, announced that there will be no demonstrations on July 1 this year. In the past, every “July 1st”, the communal association would convene people to go to the anniversary ceremony of Hong Kong’s return to the motherland, demanding the protection of democracy and human rights.

Since the CCP introduced the National Security Law to crack down on Hong Kong, almost all large civil society organizations have been disbanded and many people have been imprisoned, including Chen Baoying’s husband Liang Guoxiong.

Chen Poying, chairman of the Hong Kong Social Democracy Link: “We uphold basic human rights – petitions, protests, assembly and association are basic rights.”

Chen Baoying said that everything the community members have done is legal and based on the legal rights granted by the government.

In addition, the Hong Kong Journalists Association pointed out that before July 1, the Information Office of the Hong Kong Government requested a number of originally invited media organizations to replace at least ten reporters who had signed up to cover official events on “security grounds”, which seriously damaged the freedom of the press in Hong Kong. Let this ceremony be stained.

Affected by the typhoon “Furong”, the Hong Kong Observatory has issued the No. 3 strong wind signal. In the next two to three days, there will be severe storms. It is unclear whether this will affect the event. The dinner originally scheduled to be held tonight was cancelled, and Xi Jinping and his wife returned to Shenzhen for the night and returned the next day.
