A group of 47 former lawmakers and activists face charges of “conspiring to subvert state power” under Hong Kong’s new national security law. The charges levelled on February 28, 2020, are over their roles in a primary election organised by opposition parties in July 2020, and represents one of the heaviest political setbacks yet for the bloc. The Chinese mainland government has also passed a resolution to overhaul Hong Kong’s electoral system to ensure only “patriots” can govern Hong Kong. Now the opposition Democratic Party and Civic Party are trying to figure out what the court cases and Beijing’s move mean for their future.
