SOUNDBITE 1 - Nathan Law, Hong Kong activist (male, English, 25 sec): "In Hong Kong we're in such a dire time, because the government has been depriving us of our basic rights. Freedom of expression, freedom of assembly... And seemingly the heavy-handed approach will not stop in a short-time future. So for me it's important that we appeal to the support of the international community and we also say very clearly that even in such a hard time, Hong Kong people will never give up." 2.

SOUNDBITE 2 - Nathan Law, Hong Kong activist (male, English, 23 sec): "I've written a letter to the foreign minister Maas, saying that Germany could take the lead to take the sanction mechanism in the European Union, to implement that on the Chinese officials who are responsible for the human rights violations and to consider the counter-measures towards the national security law." 7. Cutaway: Close-up a sign "Free Hong Kong" at the demonstration ///-----------------------------------------------------------AFP TEXT STORY: leadGermany presses China over Hong Kong security law, Uighurs By Femke COLBORNE =(Picture+Video)= ATTENTION - UPDATES throughout with press conference, ADDS Maas, Wang quotes ///Berlin, Sept 1, 2020 (AFP) - Germany called out China over its security law imposed on Hong Kong and the treatment of minority Uighurs on Tuesday during a visit by Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi that was marked by protests outside the foreign ministry.At a press conference after talks with Wang, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, whose country holds the rotating presidency of the EU, also warned China against making "threats" against the Czech Republic over Taiwan.The Hong Kong law imposed in June radically increased Beijing's control over the city and has led to a brutal crackdown on dissent and protests."You know that our concerns about the effects of the security law have not been allayed," Maas said."We want the 'One Country, Two Systems' principle to be applied as fully as possible."Hong Kong was guaranteed autonomy under the "One Country, Two Systems" deal agreed ahead of its 1997 handover from Britain.But critics say the security law, imposed following months of large and often violent protests calling for greater democratic freedoms and police accountability, spells the end of the agreement.The law prompted the US to impose sanctions on Chinese officials and countries including Canada, Australia, Britain and Germany have suspended extradition agreements with Hong Kong.The European Union agreed in July to limit exports of equipment to Hong Kong that could be used for surveillance and repression.Wang defended China's policies and said both the Hong Kong law and its approach to the Uighurs were internal affairs that did not merit foreign interference. - 'We need action' - Leading a protest by several hundred demonstrators outside the foreign ministry in Berlin on Tuesday, Hong Kong activist Nathan Law called for more support from Berlin over the security law."What we need is action... This should be accomplished by the EU together and Germany should take the lead," said Law, 27, who fled to Britain after the security law came in."Berlin is very quiet when the topic is China. Berlin is very quiet when the topic is Hong Kong."Law was joined by supporters waving the blue and white flag of the Uighurs, a minority that suffers from repression and persecution in China's northwestern region of Xinjiang, according to rights groups and experts.Activists say roughly one million Uighurs and other Turkic people have been incarcerated in brainwashing camps, a mass detention that US officials have said has parallels with the Holocaust. China describes the camps as vocational training centres and says it is seeking to provide education to reduce the allure of Islamic radicalism. - China 'threats' denounced - Maas said he and Wang had discussed the camps and "I reiterated that we would very much welcome it if China would... grant access to the camps to a UN observer mission." The German foreign minister also denounced China's "threats" against a senior Czech politician who led a delegation to Taiwan.Wang had said on Monday that China would make Czech Senate speaker Milos Vystrcil "pay a high price for his short-sighted behaviour and political speculation".But Maas warned that the EU treats its foreign partners with respect and expects the same in return."Threats do not fit in with this," he said.Wang's visit to Berlin is the final stop on a tour of five European countries as he seeks to shore up economic and diplomatic relations in light of tensions with the US.This trip, his first out of China since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, also took in the Netherlands, France, Norway and Italy, where he signed two trade agreements, including one on the supply of gas.bur-fec/hmn/jxb -------------------------------------------------------------
