Recent from CGTN:
CGTN published this video item, entitled “Patriotism is hardly a Chinese invention” – below is their description.
#Beijing says now only patriots can run for elected offices in #HongKong, which some people in the West say would “undermine” the city’s #democracy and “compromise” its freedom. CGTN’s Wang Guan says a “patriotism” rule for elected offices is not unique. Similar laws exist in the U.S. and Spain, for example, and were invoked to put down riots and secessionist acts.CGTN YouTube Channel
