Hong Kong Police bans protest against new National Security Law

The Hong Police prohibited a protest that was organized to oppose China’s new legislation.

The rally was meant to take place on July 1st, the anniversary of the handing over of the Former British Colony to China.

The proposed date would have also been one day before the voting of the legislation.

The Civil Human Rights Front (CHRF) applied for the event and stated that they were denied permission.

The police force responded by saying that such gather would threaten public health due to the pandemic.

The organization still plans to appeal the decision but citizens of the nation are losing hope as the date for the approval of the legislation approaches.
