China may pass bill to crack down on Hong Kong opposition

Journalists attend a news conference by Zhang Yesui, a spokesman for the National People's Congress, broadcast remotely to the media center on the eve of the annual legislature opening session in Beijing on Thursday, May 21, 2020. China's ceremonial parliament will consider legislation that could limit opposition activity in Hong Kong, a spokesperson said Thursday, appearing to confirm speculation that China will sidestep the territory's own legislative body in enacting legislation to crack down on activity Beijing considers subversive.
