“A former food delivery worker has been jailed for five years and nine months under Hong Kong’s national security [sic] law for inciting secession by chanting pro-independence slogans at protests and advocating the stance in interviews. Adam Ma Chun-man returned before the District Court on Thursday, two weeks after he was convicted by a judge hand-picked by city leader Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor to oversee proceedings stemming from the Beijing-imposed legislation. The 31-year-old had called himself a ‘second-generation Captain America,’ in reference to a prominent protester dressed as the superhero during the 2014 Occupy movement and the Mong Kok riot in 2016.” (11/11/21)
