Dear Helen Jones, I am writing to you to inform that China is preventing people in Hong Kong having their own rights. People in Hong Kong are protesting on the roads. China is taking it too far and are shooting rubber bullets at protesters. Do you think Dear Helen Jones,
I am writing to you to inform that China is preventing people in Hong Kong having their own rights. People in Hong Kong are protesting on the roads. China is taking it too far and are shooting rubber bullets at protesters. Do you think this is right?
I want to let you know that we once owed Hong Kong so we are involved in this protest as well. As you know, we agreed with China that there would be a one country two system policy - that the same rules that Britain made should be kept until 2047 - China did agree to the promise. After 150 years, we gave Hong Kong back. Soon enough, China rudely broke the promise. This made a big impact on Hong Kong and its citizens. Do you think was the right decision to make? I certainly don’t. If China didn’t break that promise this kind of situation wouldn’t of came. Are we a country that is going to sit back and allow countries to break agreements? Are we safe in ever trusting China again? My thoughts are with the people of Hong Kong, who trusted us and our government to protect their rights and freedoms.
As you are our MP, I urge you to talk to the parliament and arrange a meeting with China and Hong Kong. If China refuses, we should take immediate action of stop trading with China because if this goes too far we can’t just leave it. Also, we were a part of this so we should take action. We can also get good reputation that this country can fight for other people’s rights. If we don’t do this, other countries can think that when they need help, they should never ask us. By ceasing trading with China, if they refuse to listen and act, we would be putting economic pressure on them. They would lose (according the 2017 trade figures) nearly 20 million pounds in imports/exports. More importantly, if we set the standard, other countries could follow our lead and put China under even more pressure to change.
The consequences that can come with it are that China does not want to agree. There is 50% chance that China could think we don’t need to do that, Hong Kong is ours now we can do whatever we want and whenever we want, so I am counting you to prepare a good reason why they should listen to us.
The only thing I am asking for is a peaceful meeting with Hong Kong and China. I hope you don’t let me down.
