The Demise of Freedom of Speech in HK?

I found another piece that eerily resembles my earlier commentary about the abrupt disappearance of 5 Hong Kong booksellers: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/28/world/asia/china-hong-kong-magazine-editors.html?ref=world
Yet another relevant note that directly involves a magazine based in mainland China: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/07/28/world/asia/china-yanhuang-chunqiu.html?ref=world&_r=0


It turns out that some of the abducted HK booksellers are of non-Chinese nationalities, just like the one in the above-mentioned news article (the first one), which calls for an international outcry over the blatant breach of freedom of speech in an otherwise autonomous Hong Kong.

This is truly saddening.

I realize that I might have charged too much of a pessimistic note in my headline, but I hope I am just overreacting.

If only.
