Hong Kong is pushing a controversial national anthem bill just as protests are kicking off again | CNN

After five months of dealing with the coronavirus and working to get back to normal, protests have started back up in China. It is expected for demonstrations and protests to increase as the Tiananmen Square massacre anniversary is coming up on June 4th. The government has stated that citizens should not be protesting everyone has already been hurt enough by the economic impacts of the coronavirus, and this is not the time for public disturbance. A main reason for the recent protests is the resume of the national anthem debate. The proposed law would allow people to receive up to three years in prison if they insult the national anthem.
