Readers: HK national security law long overdue
Editor's note: A draft decision on national security legislation has been submitted to the ongoing NPC session for deliberation. The proposed law aims to curb activities of secession, subversion, terrorism and external intervention in Hong Kong, while upholding the "one country, two systems" principle and safeguarding the legitimate rights and interests of Hong Kong residents. Readers share their opinions.
After almost a year of senseless rioting and wanton destruction of public property and even a few deaths, China has finally come around to enacting a law that would put an end to all the turmoil. It is hoped that the new law would bring peace and prosperity to Hong Kong people, and make it safe for visitors to Hong Kong!
