News video: Hundreds Rally Against Attempt to Ban Hong Kong Political Party

Hundreds of protesters gathered in Hong Kong&rsquo;s Wan Chai district on Saturday, July 21, to rally for free speech in response to a police movement to ban a pro-independence political party.

John Lee, Hong Kong&rsquo;s secretary for security, said he was considering a police request to ban the Hong Kong National Party (HKNP).

HKNP&rsquo;S dozen or so members were called a potential threat to national security and public safety, reported Hong Kong Free Press.

If banned, it would mark the first time since Hong Kong&rsquo;s 1997 handover to Chinese rule in 1997 that the government has outlawed a political organization. Credit: Aaron Mc Nicholas via Storyful.
