Three elements helped sustain the 2019 movement: street protests, local electoral institutions and international advocacy efforts. By introducing a series of legal instruments in the name of national security, Beijing wields massive discretionary power to punish protesters and electoral candidates on the one hand, and to cut off Hong Kong from the international society and its crucial support on the other.

香港2019年的運動得以持續多時,有賴三條不同的戰線:街頭抗爭丶議會選舉以及國際遊說的工作。北京以「國家安全」為名,引入一系列的法律條文,一方面藉此取得不受制約的權力,任意打壓示威者以及選舉候選人,另一方面則可以隔絕香港與國際社會之間的連結,阻撓外界對香港的支持。

Beijing has stepped up its propaganda efforts in Hong Kong by framing the recent protests, peaceful or otherwise, as terrorism. In the future, under the national security law, protesters might easily be subject to much more draconian legal punishments. Worse still, the law explicitly takes aim at foreign interventions “meddling in Hong Kong affairs.” Not only can activists or legislators who have participated in international advocacy efforts be barred from running in elections or even imprisoned, international nongovernmental organizations and other organizations, including their personnel and assets, can also be subject to legal persecution.

與此同時,北京已經進一步加強在港的政治宣傳工作,不管示威和平與否,多次指是「本土恐怖主義」抬頭。這亦意味著,於接下來的日子,示威者極易就會墮入新《國安法》的規管當中,並且需要面對更嚴苛的法律制裁。令人更為擔憂的是,這條法案亦表明針對境外勢力「干預香港事務」。這意味著,不論是議員或抗爭者,單單因為曾經參與國際遊說工作,就可能會被剝奪參選的資格,甚或者是面臨監禁。而國際非政府組織(INGOs)以及其他組織丶團體,他們的員工以及資產均可能遭受法律清算。
