Is there any reason every country isn't speaking out about this exit-ban risk?

Do business with the CCP at your peril.

Glad I visited HK before the CCP turned it into a large prison.

Good luck to the residents. Watch out for CCP boots and tanks.

People should be getting out - NOW.

The Hong Kong gov't is a rotten, corrupt Communist puppet, as are the courts, police and public servants. It is a horrible and dangerous police state.

It seems inevitable that Chinese (ie Hong Kongers) will be banned from leaving the island before long. Get out NOW to Canada, UK, Australia, the EU, USA, NZ, even Japan if they will accept any refugees.

They will never see Hong Kong ever again, but the option of freedom makes it the only choice.

Er, where do you want them to go? Are you going to open up your home and sponsor one of them?

Er, where do you want them to go?

UK offers 2.9 million visas to Hong Kongers over 23 years old :

Of course, not all wish to go to the UK, and housing is at a premium. But the UK has a moral obligation to take as many Hong Kongers who wish to emigrate. These people are not entitled to public money or housing for 10 years, but can pay their own way. They are not poor, welfare seekers.

Are you going to open up your home and sponsor one of them?

Yes, the alternative means death at the hands of Communists, of course I'd open up a room for them.

Get out NOW to Canada, UK, Australia, the EU, USA, NZ, even Japan if they will accept any refugees.

There's enough of them overseas already.

Yes, if not affiliated with the communist system in mainland China, the most people there have not a real and reliable future there. They should have or be given a choice to quickly as possible leave HK to anywhere else, where they see or wish for a possible new start for themselves.

Pukey2: Yes, without hesitation.

Sure.

Probably because many other countries (ie Japan) already have identical laws allowing exit checks on departing passengers. That's ultimately all this is. If you're wanted by police, you can’t slip past anymore. Whether this will be used or abused for nefarious purposes is yet to be seen.

Inch by inch is how these guys work.

13 ( +16 / -3 )

All advanced countries have systems in place to prevent people from leaving or boarding airplanes. What's different here is that the government will do this in an arbitrary fashion to political opponents, journalists, and activist students.

Those who were at high risk has already left HK long ago, the only ones left are of a low risk and may be still undecided.

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

As they tighten the screws on the people of HK , the ruthless Beijing bullies and their craven lickspittle lackeys are fooling no-one. They might think their power is eternal, but these cruel Chinese faux communists have gambled away their future as a legitimate government. Their power-hungry hubris all but guarantees that they have already lost the "Mandate of Heaven".

3 ( +3 / -0 )

Many countries also have rules regarding exits, such as departure taxes or other fees. These rules sound benign, but are really not so different from what China is doing.

-5 ( +1 / -6 )

And Taiwan is next

I’ve met many many fantastic people in Hong Kong-it’s a shame what the Chinese government is doing to it, it almost makes me want to weep…
