Pro-democracy groups in Hong Kong have cited the vigil ban as evidence of “political suppression” and an attack on the “one country, two systems” principle, which protects Hong Kong’s autonomy.
Such statements also echo larger concerns about China, whose recent actions may alter the city’s status as an autonomous region with a relatively independent political and economic system.
