On Friday a hashtag boycott Mulan was trending on twitter worldwide Do you know the boycott Mulan has its connection with Hong Kong protest. If you don’t know I will tell complete information on Disney star and protest how they are linked.
Hong Kong Protest
A bill has been introduced that allows all criminal handover to mainland China authorities. The bill is introduced by Hong Kong chief executive Carrie Lam who is backed by the mainland government. It created a fear among citizens of hong kong that after this china will punish protestors more forcefully than ever. Also, when the bill came in effect china can easily intervene in hong kong law situations in favor of mainland only.
Recently the protestors tried to occupy Hong Kong airport and a big clash between police and protestors erupted. In the past few months, police used batons, tear gas, pepper spray, rubber bullets on protestors. Peacekeeping and human rights authorities from every corner of the world condemn the treatment given to protestors by police. There are also allegations of allowing an armed mob to attack protestors but police did nothing.
