Hong Kong security law: What is it and is it worrying?
"24 hours after Beijing had passed its controversial security legislation. Authorities the Hong Kong had already charged 10 people with violating the sweeping new law. A new measure put severe restrictions on free expression. Beijing says the law is crucial to safeguarding Hong Kong's economic development and political stability and allows China to investigate and punish those accused of dissent. Penalties include life sentences. Los effect was immediate Twitter accounts were deleted. Pro democracy activists resigned their posts and several left the country. Li Chun Cheon is a former legislator and prominent opposition leader. He joins me now from Hong Kong, Mr Lee, Thanks for speaking with us. Hello. So, as I mentioned, several activists have disappeared from social media have ceased their pro democracy activities, and they certainly aren't talking to the press with Beijing threatening life sentences. For those that so called collude with foreign powers. I feel like I should begin this interview asking why you're taking the time to speak with us. I think it's very important to tell you well, what is happening to Hong Kong and the wording off the law is so vague that don't really know what it means. One employs collusion with a foreign power. And causing hatred to the central government. I'm not going to preach hate. I'm going to preach love only for the people of Hong Kong. How have you seen this law go into effect in terms of the way authorities are cracking down or in terms of the way that people just conduct themselves differently. They are trying to cleanse all free speech, putting fear among the people and and after you put fear, then the people began to start self censorship. So there's lots of people who tried to Cleanse or their faithful off any mentioning off the stroking that we have. During the past protest movement were now not under the Hong Kong government will have directly confronting The Chinese Communist Party because one off the provisional law is that the police has sweeping power. That is not what they used to have a new power to be operation like the secret Police. Britain has offered some Hong Kong residents safe haven. Many people have gone to Taiwan. You recently urged Congress here in the U. S to Ah pass. A bill making it easier for people in Hong Kong to seek asylum in the United States. How many people do you think we'll be looking for avenues like that over the next few months? And is that something you're thinking about? No, of course I would continue to stay in Hong Kong and continue speaking out for two people. But with the refugee proposal from any country, off course is useful that you know, people who worry about the future can go toe off other country to seek a safe harbour. But I have to remind the woe that actually They're already 9000 people arrested and 1600 already prosecuted and this is very difficult for those who are prosecuted to find a safe harbor. I think the important thing is for people to stay on in Hong Kong to continue demon and one country, two systems that are promised. We are only 23 year we still should have 27 years off, no change and also democracy. So you think there's still some hope then that the protests Khun B successful and that they can push back this this tide that has really picked up steam in recent months from China, seizing more control of Hong Kong, cracking down on on expression in Hong Kong. Of course, the situation is very difficult, you know, But when you look at is the European experience they have suffered for many years. But finally there's the Berlin Wall fell down. And so the hope is that also people in China one also democracy and freedom and joy hand together to seek for that, But off course, this regime ists now. Very powerful in terms of surveillance in terms ofthe, you know, suppression, and they're using law against people, but with the world's standing to get a Hong Kong I think we will continue our fight. We do not know when we can be. Ah, Victoria's but still I think the spirit had to be there. And we want Hong Kong to make it through the difficult time in the in the future.

Germany's Reopening Offers Hope for a Semblance of Normal
"Won all kind of plaudits for how they handled the pandemic. How is the reopening is going out smoothly. Yeah, it's not going too badly. You know, when Germany opened up more than a month ago, there were a lot of skeptics predicting second wave. That would spread through the country on that was supposed to happen by now. But so far that has not happened on a mass scale, though there have been small pockets of outbreaks that authorities have sort of managed to quell, But the summer vacation season has just started here, so we'll see what happens when more people are on the move, and we've caught you on a road trip are Germans planning?

Landslide at Myanmar jade mine kills at least 162 people
"A landslide at a jade mine in northern Myanmar has killed at least 170 people with more feared dead Search and rescue efforts continued for a second day today, authorities say a pile of mine waste slid into a lake after heavy rains that sent a wave of mud and water that buried dozens of people. In a video from the scene. A greenish wave of water floods down a hillside into a valley below workers who are not visible in the frame are further down the hillside fleeing for their lives. Hold on a witches with global witness and environmental and human rights advocacy group. It joins us from Washington. It's jaw dropping this video Paul, it's hard to tell. But this lake seems really big in the waves that resulted from This hillside of waste are enormous. It's scary to watch what happened. How common are these incidents? Unfortunately, also come in. We've seen these types of incidents happened over the last several years with scores of Miners dying As a result, My understanding is that the situation in this case is even worse. An artisanal mining. These were informal workers scavenging the mining ways left behind by a larger mining company. Can you explain how this all works? So mining companies are granted licenses to operate minds. And what happens is as they are digging out the stone where the jade is located there, Dumping the waste into these huge files with building building building two mountains of waste, and you have tens to hundreds of thousands of people in formal miners. They're known locally as M S a Now These informal miners are often mining very perilous conditions with no protection and these rock piles can become unstable and is this like today will then happen. The leader of Myanmar's government on Song said she pledged to clean up the industry when she assumed power back in 2016. What is Myanmar's government doing to regulate these mining operations? And what's changed since on Sun City made that pledge? Well when the end of the government took power. The first thing that they did to address these issues was to suspend the issuances of new license or the extension of existing licenses in an attempt to gain control over the sector and to begin a reform process. Unfortunately, the fundamental problem in the J money area is that there is no rule of law. The area is controlled by armed groups, both me and my military as well as powerful ethnic armed groups and government backed militias. Are all extorting miners illegally taxing you really have along the situation that despite the government's efforts to reform the regulatory framework have not addressed some of the fundamental issues. Yeah, On some suit, she commented on this disasters, she says joblessness is to blame but doesn't sound like this is a new development, as she's implying, is that we have seen an increase in dangerous mining practices since the licensing suspension. One of the prime reason is being that as licenses are set to expire. Companies are mining as fast as possible or when their licenses to expire, though then often partner up with companies that still have activations is And mine as fast as possible in those sites, so that creates a very dangerous condition. Ciccio is right that the informal miners, they say, are often from impoverished communities who come to the jade mines of Contin continue state to try to strike it Rich. Unfortunately, that's a very rare occurrence and more commonly, monies will get hooked on methamphetamine and other drugs and will not be able to survive the experience. Jade industry is a driver of conflict. There's no doubt about it and the revenues That it turns to conflict. Actors are key in their ability to sustain their activities. So there's no doubt that there is a real link to conflict in jail.

You always have the possibility that you might have another swine flu type outbreak, as we had in £2009 he says. There's no reason to worry about the G flew for Just yet.
