Beijing’s assault on Hong Kong freedoms worsened considerably in 2018, says NGO Human Rights Watch

Beijing’s assault on freedoms in Hong Kong worsened considerably last year, particularly in areas of free expression and political participation, NGO Human Rights Watch (HRW) said on Thursday in its World Report 2019. The 674-page annual review on human rights practices in over 100 countries said that China has increased its repression over the past year to its worst levels since the 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre, which saw a violent crackdown on student-led democracy activists.
