Abstract

China’s Party-State has given priority to stability and security and increasingly sees Hong Kong’s democratic aspiration as a threat to China’s national security. In response, Hong Kong has engaged in a mega constitutional dialogue with its authoritarian sovereign. The court has disqualified members of LegCo for their secessionist speeches, and severely punished those who have resorted to violence. The court has treated non-violent civil disobedience with leniency and tolerance, holding the line against the authoritarian intrusion from Beijing as long as the protest is conducted in a peaceful manner.

Keywords: National Security, Rights, Subversion, Basic Law, Cicil Disobedience, DQ, Occupy Central Movement
