In Hong Kong, a number of pro-democracy activists have been arrested by the Communist Party and government authorities on various charges following the implementation of the Hong Kong Security Law in July. In the face of the worsening situation in Hong Kong, Lam Wing-kee, the owner of a Causeway Bay bookstore, urged Hong Kongers to leave as soon as possible because staying in Hong Kong is not the only way to fight. “There is no worst,” he said gloomly. “There is only worse to come.” He is more worried that future rulers will find excuses to restrict Hong Kong people from leaving the country.
Mr Lam told Apple Daily that there are different ways to fight, not just face to face, but the current situation in Hong Kong is very worrying. “It looks like 12 Hong Kong people are ‘sent’ to Hong Kong, and families cannot see the future of Hong Kong. If you protest, you are shown on his behalf to be charged with secession. If you speak two words, you may break the law. See your boss Lai Zhiying speak a few words and he will be charged with secession. Why stay in Hong Kong?” Lam believes that it is more practical and intelligent to fight for one’s life outside Hong Kong. “Hong Kong people have no guns and no guns, so they cannot resist”.
He was also quoted by Apple Daily as saying that future rulers may stop people leaving Hong Kong if they think they will threaten the regime. “People on the mainland were not allowed to travel to other countries as long as they could find excuses or crimes.” He thought this could happen at any time. “There is no worst case scenario, only the worst case scenario. The People of Hong Kong should try to be scared to protect their personal safety and fight for a long time.
For the Taiwan government has said many times that it will help Hong Kong people, But Lin rongji pointed to the gap between what Taiwan government said and what it actually did. He said the minimum investment requirement for immigration to Taiwan is NT $6 million (HK $1.68 million), but the authorities have made the requirement “hot”. In addition to opening a physical store, applicants are also required to hire two local people to run the business for at least three years. Lin said the policy puts more pressure on hong Kongers who want to immigrate to Taiwan: “Besides the minimum wage, we have to take care of the welfare of our employees, increase the cost of doing business… There were individual shops which the husband and wife could manage, and there was no need to hire any one else.”
Mr Lam pointed out that if Hong Kong people sell their property, they can meet the capital needs of investment immigrants, and even have some spare money to live on. However, the hot conditions will make business more difficult and shorten the time they could support their lives, so they have a good chance to finish their studies. He believes that adding spicy conditions does not help Hong Kong people to emigrate. “The Taiwan government, while helping Hong Kong people, has added spicy conditions to the immigration, causing a gap between its will and actual actions”, and believes that the Taiwan authorities should return to the old conditions.
As for living in Taiwan, Mr Lam said that the quality of life in Taiwan was better than that in Hong Kong: “Taiwan has a sound system, health insurance, and people with a cold or fever do not have to see a doctor in six minutes.” The fact that The Taiwanese have the right to vote and can vote to bring down an unhappy leader shows that the checks and balances on power that Hong Kongers do not have are reflecting the system’s problems.
Roy yuan-rong leu and July 1 last year after the occupation of Hong Kong’s legislative council action to Liang Jiping, indigenous people in Germany convener yellow set up front before and in the UK staff chairman, in front of the British consulate in Hong Kong in July this year to raise a shelter yi (Haven Assistance), said Hong Kong people may need to help provide a Shared information platform, to provide the United States, Britain, Germany, Taiwan and other countries asylum policy resources.
The typhoon shelter issued a statement last week saying that former Legislator Leung Chung-hang left Hong Kong on November 30 and arrived in Washington, the United States the following day. Mr Leung said on his social networking page that he had severed all ties with his family in Hong Kong and resigned from all posts in the youth policy, showing that from now on, personal words and deeds have nothing to do with them.
