  • South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Hong Kong schools mark first National Security Education Day under security law imposed by Beijing” – below is their description.

    Flag-raising ceremonies, talks and quiz competitions were among the activities hundreds of schools in Hong Kong held to mark National Security Education Day on April 15, 2021. Children as young as three years old learned about the national security law (NSL), which Beijing imposed on Hong Kong in June 2020. Under the legislation, schools and universities in Hong Kong have been urged to promote national security education. Beijing declared April 15 as National Security Education Day in 2015, and the Hong Kong government began promoting it with more fanfare after the NSL was enacted.

    Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (HKSAR), is a metropolitan area and special administrative region of the People’s Republic of China on the eastern Pearl River Delta of the South China Sea. With over 7.5 million residents of various nationalities in a 1,104-square-kilometre (426 sq mi) territory, Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.

    Hong Kong became a colony of the British Empire after the Qing Empire ceded Hong Kong Island at the end of the First Opium War in 1842. The colony expanded to the Kowloon Peninsula in 1860 after the Second Opium War and was further extended when Britain obtained a 99-year lease of the New Territories in 1898. The whole territory was transferred to China in 1997. As a special administrative region, Hong Kong maintains separate governing and economic systems from that of mainland China under the principle of “one country, two systems”.
