A bipartisan group of US senators introduced the “Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act” in June, which would require an annual check to insure that Hong Kong is autonomous enough to justify trade advantages with the US, including lower tariffs on imported goods. [There is no question that most of the marchers are motivated by a desire to be free of China’s control, but the convenient presence of thousands of American flags in Hong Kong, and hundreds of professionally printed posters in English, and the presence of US senators, suggest that the US government may be attempting to influence the movement.] -GEG[/su_note]
