As we had already written about Hong Kong, protests have gotten more tense and pressing, but the pro-democracy party still stands tall.
The Senate unanimously approved a pair of bills on Tuesday Nov. 19 meant to support the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong that have caused mass demonstrations across the region for months.
Lawmakers passed the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act by unanimous consent, which would mandate that the State Department report annually on Hong Kong’s status as an autonomous territory of China. The legislation would also impose sanctions on any officials who commit human rights violations in Hong Kong.
