Andy Chan makes speech to foreign journalists in defiance of Chinese government
A Hong Kong pro-independence activist has decried Beijing’s rule over the city as modern-day colonialism in a speech to a foreign journalists’ association that defied China’s demand that the event be cancelled.
Beijing swiftly criticised the talk, saying freedom of speech in Hong Kong did not extend to discussion of independence, which it said was a threat to national security. “We express our indignation and condemn it,” the Chinese foreign ministry office in Hong Kong said.
