Mainland China's Imposition of Security Laws In Hong Kong Will Spark Protests
The Chinese central government's decision to circumvent the Hong Kong legislature and impose long-delayed national security laws in Hong Kong will provide a major rallying point as protests rebound following COVID-19.

China's Anti-Graft Probe Aims High
China's Anti-Graft Probe Aims High
China's sweeping anti-corruption campaign is intensifying, and the second round of major investigations this year is expected to begin in the coming weeks.

He seems well poised to do this. Observers often call him the most powerful Chinese leader since Mao Zedong. On the outside, it appears to be true. But China's ruling authorities are behaving as if they are anything but secure -- since February, Chinese censors have responded harshly to seemingly innocent slips in the press. China's harsh response suggests that political struggle is more intense than it has been in decades.
