Hong Kong Police Arrest 4 Teens For Mere Online Posts Under New Security Law

The ill effects of the Hong Kong national security law which took effect June 30 are continuing to be felt. Hong Kong pro-democracy, anti-Beijing activists have continued to be on edge and now largely ‘underground’ since last month’s formal passage of the sweeping national security law in response to the mass protests and unrest which gripped the city for much of last year. 

On Wednesday four activists were arrested for merely making online posts expressing pro-independence sentiment. The AP reports that all of the them are young, between 16- and 18-years, and were further said to have been ‘organizing’.
