In Hong Kong, Hong Kong authorities have charged 47 activists with “conspiracy to commit subversion” under the national security law. They were among more than 50 people arrested in January for organizing a primary vote to choose candidates for a legislative election, in the hopes of forming a majority bloc of lawmakers opposed to one-party rule. If convicted, the activists face up to life in prison.
