 Hong Kong Independence books still on sale


Haiwai.com, July 6 (Xinhua) Hong Kong Wen Wei Po reported on the 6th that Hong Kongs national security law has been implemented, and it is illegal for anyone to attempt to split the country and subvert the state power. Recently, the Hong Kong Public Library has taken Hong Kong Independence books off the shelves, but there are still bookstores upstairs for sale. Some people in the legal profession have pointed out that if the contents of the relevant books involve four types of crimes against Hong Kongs national security law, such as splitting the country, subverting the state power, terrorist activities, colluding with foreign or foreign forces to endanger national security, they should not be sold on the market, otherwise, bookstores may face severe legal penalties. He also said that this will not affect the freedom of speech and publication in Hong Kong, because freedom will also be subject to certain restrictions.

During a visit to Hong Kong on the 5th, Hong Kong media reporters found that after the implementation of the Hong Kong national security law, some bookstores upstairs that used to sell many sensitive political books have no longer placed sensitive books involving Hong Kong Independence. When asked whether they would take the initiative to take the books off the shelves, some Bookstore staff did not respond positively, saying that all the books sold had been put on the shelves, it is necessary to keep a low profile in the bookshop.

However, Hong Kong media reporters also found that there are still bookstores that ignore whether some books violate the national security law of Hong Kong and still sell them. The staff of the bookstore said that there was no plan to stop selling books involving politics for the time being. They said that there was no clear provision that any books could not be sold. They only claimed that they would pay more attention to the contents of the books sold and stressed that all kinds of books held by the bookstore were sold. In addition, the public library is reviewing whether the contents of some books will violate the Hong Kong national security law, and the relevant books will not be available for public borrowing and reference.

In addition, anyone who incites, assists or abets others to split the country or subvert the state power is also illegal. If the contents of the books sold on the market involve such acts, they have violated the Hong Kong national security law, and the books concerned should not be sold on the market. Asked if it would affect the freedom of speech and press, Wang Jixian pointed out that western countries, including the United States and the United States, would not allow the publication of books with contents of splitting the country or subverting state power. Moreover, freedom of speech and publication is not absolute and should be subject to certain restrictions. He cited the example of some people who published books to teach or advocate others to kill people, they could not be allowed, so he did not think this would affect them Freedom in Hong Kong. Hong Kongs national security law aims to prevent and stop activities that violate national security. Some citizens agree that the Hong Kong Independence books will be removed from the shelves, pointing out that the act of splitting the country is not allowed in all parts of the world. If books have such elements of advocacy, it is normal to take them off the shelves, so as not to poison the younger generation.
