One of the nine arrested under the new law, adopted in the wake of last year’s widespread unrest , was holding a “Hong Kong Independence” flag .
China passed a ‘unlawful’ law to stop democratic voices of Hong Kong. The law is proving effective in tamping down the anti-government demonstrations that have wracked Hong Kong for more than a year.
On Wednesday, the anniversary of Hong Kong’s return to China’s control , thousands march against Chinese aggression .
However, Hong Kong sovereignty was handed back to China by Britain in 1997 and certain rights were supposed to be guaranteed for at least 50 years under the “One Country, two system” agreement.
