Media Roundtable: China's Security Law For Hong Kong & Protests Over The Death Of George Floyd

Protests against police violence in Minneapolis, Minnesota

On this edition of Your Call’s media roundtable, we're discussing China’s national security legislation for Hong Kong. China's National People's Congress has approved the draft of a national security bill that would criminalize dissent and includes, for the first time, the establishment of national security agencies in Hong Kong. 

Later in the show, we'll discuss the police killing of George Floyd, a 46-year-old African American man in Minneapolis. The four officers involved were fired on Tuesday. George Floyd’s family say they should be charged with murder.
