    Why the UK has no teeth when it comes to China and Hong Kong

    China’s move to impose national security law in Hong Kong has drawn international outcry, including from the UK, over worries that the territory’s treasured liberties are coming to an end. Activists have welcomed greater international attention on the issue. But the UK’s window to pressure Beijing to change course in a meaningful way has largely closed. Hong Kong has experienced shrinking rights and freedoms for years. Elected lawmakers have been disqualified from their positions and outspoken professors have been removed from their posts. Booksellers publishing on sensitive topics have disappeared, later appearing in mainland China on state television “confessing” to various crimes. A British journalist was even expelled from Hong Kong, seemingly for having chaired a talk by a pro-democracy figure. Such instances are among many reasons why mass protests have erupted periodically since the former British colony was returned to Chinese rule in 1997. Each round of unrest has been more chaotic than the last, as people rushed to denounce Beijing’s encroaching influence. China has long made clear it’s position. Officials conveyed for the first time in 2014 that Beijing no longer considered valid the Sino-British Joint Declaration, an international treaty meant to guarantee rights and freedoms for those in Hong Kong. The Chinese government has continued to reiterate outright the document no longer carried any significance. “The time to say something was at latest about six years ago,” said Alvin Cheung, a legal scholar at New York University’s US-Asia Law Institute. “It’s a pretty grim indictment of the international community that all the warning signs have been around for this long and they have been consistently swept under the carpet until the very end.”
