Around 370 people were arrested in Hong Kong during protests over new national security laws on July 1.

In this video, a person wearing a fluorescent yellow vest – considered the ubiquitous uniform of media covering the protests in Hong Kong – is knocked to the ground while carrying a camera in the Wan Chai district. Studio Incendo, who filmed the footage, posted on Twitter that the person targeted was a journalist. The Hong Kong Journalists Association later condmened the use of crowd control measures, including water cannon, on journalists during the protests in Wan Chai.

Later footage from the Times Square shopping area shows police arresting multiple people following the protests.

The new national security law that signed by China’s President Xi Jinping on June 30 criminalizes acts of secession, subversion, terrorism and collusion with foreign and external forces to jeopardise national security, according to reports. Under the law, offenders may be given a life sentence as the maximum punishment. Credit: Studio Incendo via Storyful

    If China had a second amendment the people would have at least a fighting chance against oppression . In Hong Kong they lost before they ever started. They want freedom and the Democrats in America are for the same tactics. First disarm Americans so no one can resist and then crush any resistance to Socialism.. Which is why I am voting for Trump in November.

    China's President is highly delusional and has no idea as to what He is even talking about. He is a great danger to both the Chinese and Hong Kong People and most of the World in general.
