While thousands of Chinese lawmakers gather for their annual session, Beijing is preparing a new law against subversive activities in Hong Kong. Opposition democrats in the city warn it would be "the end of Hong Kong."
The "1992 Consensus" has been flung around by Taiwanese politicians as a way to discuss cross-strait relations, but there was never even a consensus.
Hong Kong's economy has been slipping even before the protests, and with the failing "one country, two systems," the city's future as an international hub is looking even grimmer.
Hong Kong and China would both benefit from more clarity on what the city's status will be after 2047.
