Hong Kong’s legislature has passed a law making disrespect of the Chinese national anthem a crime. The law passed as police ramped up their crackdown on anti-government protests, and following a bitter debate that saw scuffles break out on the floor of Hong Kong’s Legislative Council. Its passage came on the 31st anniversary of the crackdown in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square, when Chinese forces crushed student protesters.
