Photo of the Week: Hong Kong MPs set Article 23 aflame
While the Hong Kong legislative body discussed installation of Article 23 (anti-subversive law) under Beijing's pressure, dozens of MPs walked out in protest and burned the symbolic document of Article 23, condemning Beijing's censorship and restrictions imposed upon the Hong Kong people. Protesters from religious, labor, legal, and media groups also showed up to oppose this new bill, calling it the "Evil Law."
