Library books should not have ‘unhealthy ideas’: Hong Kong leader

Hong Kong’s leader, John Lee, stated that the city should not recommend books with “unhealthy ideas” following the removal of library books on politically sensitive topics. The move is seen as part of the broader crackdown on dissent after the imposition of the national security law. Hong Kong’s autonomy has diminished, and expressions of political differences have been stifled, including the banning of the annual Tiananmen Square vigil. Lee did not clarify what constitutes “unhealthy ideas.”
