Under the 1997 Basic Law of the HKSAR (Hong Kong Special Administrative Region), Hong Kong was granted relative political and economic freedom from China until 2047. However, China has encroached on these civil rights. In May 2019, protestors gathered in opposition to the Fugitive Offenders and Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters Legislation (Amendment) Bill 2019. They feared the bill would erode Hong Kong's democracy by permitting the pro-China government to extradite political dissenters to China without legislative oversight. Laws issued in 2020 and 2021 restrict protest activity and voting rights. China now has direct legal control over Hong Kong.
