Hong Kong, rinvio della legge sull’estradizione

La governatrice Carrie Lam ha annunciato il rinvio (a tempo indeterminato) dell’approvazione della legge sull’estradizione dopo le violente manifestazioni dei giorni scorsi che hanno generato scontri fra la polizia e i giovani manifestanti. «Questa legge sull’estradizione è giusta e giustificata. Ma abbiamo ascoltato la gente e la società, abbiamo introdotto numerosi emendamenti durante il dibattito, abbiamo fatto un grande sforzo. Comunque, la legge ha creato grandi divisioni nella nostra società, per colpa di malintesi». Il popolo però teme un pericoloso riavvicinamento al governo cinese, politicizzato e brutale, da parte di Kong Kong, dove invece vigono tutele legali. (foto Ap)

Hong Kong police fired tear gas and rubber bullets at protesters who had massed outside government headquarters Wednesday in opposition to a proposed extradition bill that has become a lightning rod for concerns over greater Chinese control and erosion of civil liberties in the territory.
