7:33 am
most proud of. every time i travel there, whether it be still west africa, people stop me, can tell me how much they appreciate coverage. and our focus is not just on their suffering, but also on the more realistic and inspiring story people trust to tell them what's happening in their communities in a clear and bias. and as an african, i couldn't be more proud to be autumn, you know, the hello, i'm richard. disparate. and you're watching a special edition of the listening folks this week. we are focusing on hong kong, the city, and it's transformation. july 1st marked 24 years since the united kingdom handed. it's commonly back to china. with that hand over came a set of promises. they ging would stay out of hong kong. internal affairs keep its hands off its freedoms, including its free press. but for many hong kong hours,
7:34 am
the question was not if, but when china's communist party leaders would break that promise. and the answer appears to be. now, over the past 2 years, bay gene has intensified the stamping out of political descent in hong kong through new laws drawn up in the name of security, the jailing of critics and the reigning in of the news media. in the 2nd half of this program, we speak to 3 hong congress whose work and lives have been severely affected by the cities, loss of autonomy. but 1st, joanna, who's on how hong kong got here, from a city of liberty's to one that's under a song. i always enjoyed the most open, liberal press in the region. well, what we're seeing over the last year or 2 has been more like a death by
7:35 am
a 1000 cuts on young. why you got hydro targeting all organ. why? joy target, we're actually all know even the most optimistic of this father, difficult to have reason for optimism about journalists may have to pay a price for the effort to seek the truth. come a place on known for its openness and civil liberties. now the place of political persecution in a corrected free speech. a city that in the last few years alone seem more than 10000 protesters arrested, and dozens of dissidence jail. the result of the transformation that's been 24 years in the making since july, the 1st 997. today,
7:36 am
the united kingdom, which had ruled and come for more than 150 years, returned its colony to china. ending hong kong, back to china was weird. construct. you had this kind of free open capitalist city this enclave. and so you're handing it back to a country that's controlled by a authoritarian communist party. and the way that the 2 sides, the british in the chinese side were able to make it work as they came up with this amazing formula. i said we'll have one country, but it will be 2 systems. i got by the way, co op or something, but b k for hunger and we could have gone along. so i got hate when choices got him on a something g, l, d p and i hung all comes, all of them case. i gotta use much money. so you recall that guy we met from the china did not become like hong kong. if anything in the 24 year
7:37 am
seems to hand over. it's hong kong that's become more like mainland china under british rule. the city didn't have a democracy, but it did have robust civil liberties are well functioning, justice system. and one of the free is media environments in the region. the one country to systems agreement was supposed to safeguard this, at least until 2047. and in the initial years after the handover, beijing held up its end of the bargain. that was at least partly because china was unwilling to kill the goose that laid the golden eggs. as a british colony, i'm calling it grown into a global financial hub. and its thriving port, air links and axes to for an investment enabled china to generate about 20 percent of its g d, p to the city. it made economic sense for beijing to be relatively hands off. however, as china grew into an economic superpower in the early 2000 pages,
7:38 am
started to rethink its hong kong strategy. beginning perhaps from 20 all 3, when there's marked change of tactics. of a change was towards hong kong, more control, more innovations and more presence in the way we've gotten to media this a lot in meal to those strange of strategy. so beginning from that, we've seen the media on double the red in direct pressure. the hygiene we got that pilot. you don't see. we have to hang on stop. i will enjoy all the people in car we want they jody or topic on what you go home again. oh, my god, i certainly we my, my in the, the me, me being fond. china's tougher approach to hong kong was solidified in 2012.
7:39 am
when cj in ping was appointed general secretary of the communist party. in 2014 c radically changed the election process for the cities. my senior, political representative, the chief executive jungle. you figured out what i thought you're going to show. sure, sure you shut down the shoot, enable. sure, sure. don't go. and they don't change. infuriated hong kong and for $79.00 days, mass protests called the umbrella movement, paralyzed to city. beijing responded by wretched thing up. it's correct down on the sense more than a 1000 people were arrested for their ruined demonstrations and at least $127.00 were convicted. china also intensified its assault on hong kong media since 2014, at least 5 major mainstream media outlets called new probation owners,
7:40 am
including hong kong, dominant broadcaster t v b. and it's leading english newspaper, the south china morning post for those outlet minutes to hold out against the pressure vanishing, wielded in considerable commercial muscle boycotting advertisements and pro democracy tabloids like apple daily. regardless, holden cho, the vice chairman of the largest probation party in hong kong government, denies any crack down on the cities, media freedoms. i think it's time for me to build these. i'm recruit and unwarranted accusation. the media enjoy all the freedom of brass. nothing less than before is all vibrant and very diverse people with me or hong kong by saying, wow, all the past few years is seems that there are some sort of crack down on the sand
7:41 am
and stuff like that. of course they smearing. i think those confluence of events here that made this crack down kind of inevitable here in hong kong. she didn't think came into power. it was a very hard line attitude. and then you have people here start pushing for more democracy that really got to ship them up in beijing. and they realized that hong kong suddenly was a problem. and then along comes the 2019 protests and that's where i think china lost its patients. those 2019 protests were the biggest in hong kong history. more than 2000000 people about a quarter of the population took to the streets risking arrest for 10 consecutive months. the hong kong police tried hard to quote the protests at times, withdrew to force the bay. jing seized on the year long unrest to introduce legislation. a strict new national security law designed to curb dissent
7:42 am
in hong kong once and for all implemented in june 2020 the law outlaws, session subversion, and collusion with foreign forces. vaguely to find offences that carried maximum sentences of life imprisonment. a new law has proven effective at silence and critics. so for $54.00 people have been charged including jimmy lie, the owner of the apple daily newspaper. the paper has been repeatedly targeted by the authorities. the final straw came on june 17th when its officers were raided. the editor in chief was arrested and the company's assets are frozen. within a week of that rate, apple daily published its last and final edition. all right, so they told me moby all got you boy call to me
7:43 am
a lot for money and god thing, how can i call you when we want a thing? i'll go and then come via for me that you thomas, i'm going to have more seattle game. we'll give you both, both eager that go ahead and double click on the account number casey channel. like why? i think as long as you are bader law, you don't coco against national security. i see nothing that they need to feel very let me take an example. apple daily is not only a pap roy, but it's also a prop again the done against central government. so if you are running a media with an agenda to sort of thing during our countries national security, there's something wrong, isn't it? the social alterations or the to top odl on your walk? we'll see how old or her to be in your conference. you can leave it on her phone,
7:44 am
you want to go home, see him, how you want you to see, or they can hold all on paper and you're saying, i'm such all you thought and got caught on the word. something with john charles, chilly, speak from experience as a freelance producer for hong kong public broadcaster radio television, hong kong or r t h k. she's become a target for her reporting. cd online footage. last year she was arrested for her investigation into why police didn't intervene in a violent move attack on pro democracy protest. her new 2019. she was attacked by a group of white men. we live back in 6. she looked through publicly available vehicle registration databases to track down the attackers, a practice that the prosecution seized on,
7:45 am
alleging that by failing to declare that her search was her during the listing purposes. joy knowingly made a false statement. she was to find nearly $800.00 us dollars and co of august autopay. she like the top top. we don't get yelled in either got into a problem or not my shot and the hotel. we saw the hiking and they all called a hard edge on both of them and they just started her height to make a call go someone's yelled. it's no longer just beige in the coming for hong kong media, the city chief executive, kerry lamb, and will many of called her pro china rubber stem government are cracking down to take bow choice employer, rti hage. k. the public broadcaster that used to have a reputation for its critical journalism. following it coverage of the 2019 protest
7:46 am
including police violence. the hong kong government conducted a far reaching review of r t h. case management, and editorial direction. it has since replaced its director with a prob, aging bureaucrat and ext various of its program or they say the goal that i love to be if he comes on he said type thing, full option, high things like homes. i see her home. i think we got a high, high, full moving full height height on the, on the have a sample to be on ball. so i can go home and go to the top. it seems to riot, back in 2019 d h k. have told you some program reporting for suits being very much bias. the government, if they see something wrong done by all th k they, they're simply crossing the red line going against the charge of they must have been is their responsibility to regulate and make sure that our
7:47 am
t h k will be back on the right track. ah, going by, it's new political show of program hosted by the chief executive herself. so they gave and there is little doubt as to which direction r t h k headed in. but even with so much of home comes media and a stranglehold and the political position silenced beijing was done in march this year, the communist party rewrote the rules of hong kong electoral system. ensuring only patriot can now run for government. i could well prove the final nail in the coffin of the one country to systems agreement. sure. what diamond i'm going take on passing up to see how you got hung on comes a hey leo on to compensate. go on. i'm sure. you know, we gotta see how to go by her,
7:48 am
so she'll come to honda. how are you? hi, uncle se whole megan call. awesome. and see our day phone height would be half done . some should work. i don't see some ongoing joke. sexy but whites. you over the phone, have to have a mix all on capital with joe, you're report documents. the way china is cracked down on hong kong, effects journalism there. but the impact these changes have on freedom of expression. they go way beyond news organizations will absolutely take, for example, hong kong publishing industry at the chinese government owns nearly as 30 publishing houses in the city. and it also controls the majority of the booksellers . there. they only print and sell books that so the official line, they've also made changes to school books, which now teach that at hong kong legislature and this year ery,
7:49 am
ultimately answer to beijing. then there's of course, the new national security law, which could be used to target anyone that expresses undesirable views. for example, filmmakers in june this year, the hong kong government announced that it was going to block the distribution of any movie that is deemed to undermine national security. they're also going to vet art exhibitions and galleries and to really cement their control over hong kong narrative. china is reportedly setting up what they call propaganda departments in the city tasked with controlling media organizations, but also public opinion. so we'll keep an eye on these attempts to control what people read, right? say what they teach, how are citizens, people who have opinions dealing that are they going silent? finance, 3 hong kong or is that exact question? and none of them journalist in the traditional sense, but old people who fallen victim to these new restrictions on freedom of speech.
7:50 am
the 1st is leach young. he is the founder of the june 4th museum, which is an exhibition in hong kong, which is dedicated entirely to telling the truth about the 1989 chinaman squire massacre a topic that is completely off limits in china. lee has become a target for his work. just weeks after we interviewed him, he was arrested and sentenced to 20 months in prison for what the authorities call organizing an authorized protest. then there is a one cake, one, better known under his 10 name, lindsey he is a long time political cartoonist who has been forced to navigate these new edits, royal red lines in his drawings, and then austria. i also spoke to nathan law, a former protest leader and democracy activist who was forced to flee hong kong, going to excel in london because the authorities back home were going out of their way to silence in all. i thought to the idea of
7:51 am
this joyful museum during the 20th anniversary of the 10 square mascot. because in china, everyone is being told a lie. about $989.00 is a complete black out of $89.00 history. so we want the truth to come out. the april 15th 1989, the previous general secretary of the communist party. we all die and he was a very popular reformers. and so i problem a lot of students to go and mourn them. and then the morning begins to turn into a demand for anti corruption reform. the proceed. and the student began to come
7:52 am
out on last to occupy the attendance way. but the com, the audio regime, calling them demonstrate the student as and to revolutionary i . and then they decide, standing on me and frank donald do today. they are no official rec calling of how many people are di, 9089. it was way no one knows me and the congress money is of course trying to press or information about what happened. so the idea was since there, so many chinese people coming to hong kong, it would be very, very important to have a physical museum. the future full,
7:53 am
the museum is pipe, uncertain, and reach because the, the congress body use in the nation sees the law. they are using it in the very opposite way. the red line can always ship and they can always strangle sol before . and the nation signal was enacted. we started the process of trying to plan for 9 use the 1st we have been july, everything that we have. and so that you know that i'll be in the way. if anything happened to this museum in a way, what happened in 89 photo after thing, after 42 years is the same regime and they won't tolerate descent and democracy. and so this is very much relevant today because the fight is due on
7:54 am
me has been trying for content for almost 40 years trying for such a long time. i could see what has been the life of hong kong before the hand over and afterward. so i think, to some extent, my, my cartoon has recorded the history of transition. ah, this one is drawn and nearly 40 years ago. but a transition about the hong kong moving back to china actually is just like from one case going back to the other case is a colony of china. and from colony, a few came back. cartoon has always been very powerful that been given the chinese government knows that to some extent, quite afraid of. it was quite a little bit of lucky for me. i'm currently working from daddy and danny. i think
7:55 am
this is the only 2 newspaper allowed me to throw a cartoon. but there are a lot of father young cotton where it's not a job and they were quite afraid of the new national security law. they don't want to draw the national flag or the hong kong flag and they won't play with the national anthem. they used to make fun of seeing things so right right now they are afraid of doing as trying to cotton their red lines everywhere. and we won't know where the red line moved on one side from rock direction. and it's actually the casing right now in hong kong. so it's important for us to, to keep on turing cartoon. and to one day, this is a lie if the thing that they're, they're not going to do something i'm asked. but to me as
7:56 am
a constant is because we have to use this opportunity to, to, to continue to express ourselves instead of laying down our pen and surrender in 20, 20 june to leave the hong kong. now secondly, worried about my personal safety. i had been left at one of the largest national enemy by the state media for very long time with when you go, i couldn't have imagined to doing interviewing the okay to be wanted under the national security law and to become an ex out activist. if you know that she's going to vancouver, you the funds all be we've our funds, if you're around, we have come to find that we $25.00 people. so
7:57 am
a p hope to vote country younger. the fun way. be good if you question keep and runs your way by you the junk bail bond that far. and in hong kong, you just can't talk genuinely about your thoughts towards the beijing government to what the status phone call fell off of human rights activist. not only themselves being intimidated a portrait child, their loved ones, including the wife, tutor, and not being misstated valence or even also child. so for me, when i realized that i would be leaving hong kong issue, a complex statement about differing my ties with my families. so i think i did a very difficult choice, but that choice was for the safety and well being of my family of all allow me to
7:58 am
say that mr. nathan lau in front of you is most appro democracy activist is a fugitive from the law of hong kong that beijing government has always been trying to miami troublemaker fall, in fact, her or anything that they could hundreds my reputation of course targeting your individual it but they are also trying to describe the movement, who's even in london. i still do read the cautious about my safety. we all understand how extensive china reach could be thought being living as chris live and tried to be protecting myself. but the future phone call is like the shop. my fisher is definitely, but a long term future for me as an effort. i'm not titled to lose hope. my duties too, and how people contains all of our fellows not to give up
7:59 am
after almost 25 years of shipping and then hacking away at hong kong freedoms and autonomy. beijing has left the hands off approach behind the pandemic proved a useful pretext to clear demonstrators from the streets. the new national security law has made it much harder for them to return. but the fight for hong kong is not over as lead truck yet from the june 4th museum, put it to the court before getting locked up to live in the truth. that's the path of democracy i choose. you've been watching a special edition of our program on hong kong, how it's changed and where it's go. with the next time, here at the listing, the frank assessments schools and tell to the been reduced to rubble. how do you think
8:00 am
the shapes, the generation and the politics that life has been shipped? why vitamin some conflict inside story on our jazeera ah ah, a partially collapse building in the us state of florida has been demolished before a tropical storm makes wonderful. ah, alarm down jordan, this now does hear a lie from also coming up doesn't survive the same crash in the philippines. the military has not grounded other c 130.
