Article 23 of the Basic Law


The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region shall enact laws on

its own to prohibit any act of  treason, secession, sedition, subversion

against the Central People’s Government, or theft of  state secrets, to

prohibit foreign political organizations or bodies from conducting

political activities in the Region, and to prohibit political organizations or

bodies of  the Region from establishing ties with foreign political

organizations or bodies.


---------------------------------------


Whereas, public and media opposition to or denunciations of the sovereignty of China in Hong Kong have been committed repeatedly by certain individuals using the pretext of their own interpretations of the Basic Law to commit the crime of Lese Majeste against the sovereignty of the Chinese people, assembled, including with protests in the streets to demonstrate their opposition to such sovereignty,


--------------------------------------------------------------------------




BE IT RESOLVED:



That, any action or communication that ignores, insults, denies, rejects, opposes, contradicts, or questions the sovereignty of China, including demands and innuendoes that the sovereignty of China in Hong Kong is contingent on any of the articles of the Basic Law, shall be construed as criminal acts of Lese Majeste.


----------------------------------------

That, when crimes of Lese Majeste are accompanied by any form of armed opposition, with or without the use of weapons, against the enforcement of public law, these crimes shall be considered as Treason.

---------------------------------------


That, crimes of Lese Majeste shall be punishable by immediate revocation of Chinese citizenship, visa or residency permit of foreign nationals, without recourse to court proceedings, as an administrative right of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and HKSAR Chief Executive, who shall both concur on such action.


----------------------------------------

Crimes of Treason shall incur in addition other penalties as deemed appropriate by the responsible courts.

According to the Basic Law, Hong Kong is a part of China, and China has sovereignty over Hong Kong, without any preconditons, contingencies, or elections.  The promise of eventual universal suffrage in the selection of the Chief Executive is a privilege granted by the Chinese national government, when the effects and influence of foreign subversives as seen in this forum, have been eradicated permanently, and the Hong Kong people are freed from foreign inducements to vote for foreign-supported candidates.  In order to achieve this pre-condition for universal suffrage, Article 23 of the Basic Law must be fully and effectively implemented, not the other way around, where a foreign-supported stud is elected with foreign funding, before the implementation of Article 23, which is what our British or rather, "English-speaking" forumites in general want to see.  The matter of when universal suffrage in the selection of the Chief Executive of the HKSAR is granted, according to the Basic Law is the privilege and right of the Chinese national government.  

ACCORDING THE BASIC LAW, THERE IS NO TIMETABLE OR DEADLINE FOR THE GRANTING OF UNIVERSAL SUFFRAGE IN THE SELECTION OF THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE.  

AND IN FACT, IN ORDER TO ACHEIVE THE CONDITIONS WHERE FOREIGN INTERFERENCE IN SUCH AN ELECTION IS IMPOSSIBLE, ARTICLE 23'S IMPLEMENTATION MUST FIRST BE COMPLETED.
