    On June 30, 2020, authorities on the Chinese mainland passed a national security law for Hong Kong banning secession, subversion of state power, terrorism and collusion with foreign forces. Beijing has also set up a dedicated office in the city to oversee implementation of the controversial legislation. Three months after the imposition of the law, prominent opposition politicians and activists have spoken to the Post about how the legislation has changed their lives, and what implications they fear it will have for their rights and freedoms.
