10:02 am
streets now. well there have been a few small protests sami during the past few hours and a clash inside hong kong's legislative assembly between pro-government lawmakers and their opponents but we are expecting to be honest in the coming weeks the protests to return one small at the moment we still have social distancing regulations and rules here in hong kong which means that it's impossible for people of more than in groups of more than 8 to gather on the streets now those social distancing rules have been extended until june 4th saw i think once that is over and if those social distancing rules aren't extended then i think you know expect the protesters to return to the streets but it's not in the same numbers as last year but certainly i think they will take to the streets there is a real anger here at the moment and
10:03 am
a sense also months some of the protest groups that they have nothing to lose by returning to the streets now in the last few minutes the hong kong government has issued a statement saying that it will fully implement the decision of china's national people's congress to introduce a new security law and also stressing that the people of hong kong will continue to enjoy their freedoms well those words have rung very hollow to the pro-democracy camp here in hong kong one of their spokesman took part in a in a media conference on friday morning and he said it was clear that president xi jinping no longer cared about what the rest of the world thinks and that hong kong and china were now on the road to confrontation once more let's be clear that you know while you know it is a it has been reported that it's china's parliament that is proposing this legislation this is come from president xi jinping i think last year when he saw the central liaison office here in hong kong having it's it's it's sort of symbol
10:04 am
on the door destroyer. when he saw the chinese flag being desecrated on in t.v. news report that for him i think was the final straw and this new law is is designed not so much to restrict protests but also to deal with these acts of secession and separatism when people take part in marches here in hong kong sami often often they do so holding posters calling for an independent hong kong an independent tibet if that happens in the future people doing that could find themselves facing a long jail sentence or a dream brown there from hong kong thanks for that now also coming from the national people's congress for the 1st time in decades china won't set a growth target the premier league told $3000.00 delegates promoting development would be set aside as beijing works to repair an economy badly hit by the
