Beijing’s top legislative body on June 30, 2020, unanimously passed a law for Hong Kong prohibiting acts of secession, subversion, terrorism and collusion with foreign forces to endanger national security. Chinese officials said the law was necessary to stop anti-government protests that broke out in the city in June 2019.Hong Kong’s government says it will not affect the daily lives of most of the city’s residents.
