A LER: THE MACAU PRECEDENT
"Macau doesn't boast as robust a democratic movement as Hong Kong enjoys. That's partly the fault of Macau's former Portuguese masters, who tried to hand the territory back to Beijing as early as 1974. It's also due to a limp press and the overwhelming influence China exerts over the territory's tiny economy. The Macau Article 23 precedent shows how fragile the protection of civil liberties is in today's China. Hong Kongers should beware" - no Asian Wall Street Journal, via O Protesto, do Nuno Lima Bastos.
