Hong Kong: Beijing quisling court bans protest song Glory to Hong Kong

“An appeals court in Hong Kong has banned a popular song that was penned during the Chinese territory’s pro-democracy protests of 2019. The ban on Glory to Hong Kong, issued on Wednesday, came as the territory’s authorities sought to remove the song from internet search results and content-sharing platforms. The popular song incorporates defiant lyrics, including the key protest slogan ‘Liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our times.’ It was later mistakenly played as Hong Kong’s anthem at international sporting events, instead of China’s ‘March of the Volunteers,’ in mix-ups that upset city officials.” ()5/08/24)
