Chinas Embassy Decries Double Standard In Depiction Of Hong Kong, Ottawa Protests

TORONTO (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – twenty third February, 2022) China’s diplomatic mission in Canada slammed Ottawa for the “stark double standard” in the best way the the federal government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau portrayed the Freedom Convoy in Canada and the violent protests in Hong Kong.

Over the weekend, the Ottawa leg of the Freedom Convoy protests was routed by regulation enforcement after the Trudeau authorities granted itself new, sweeping emergency powers to quell what it termed an “occupation” and “blockade” of the nation’s capital that offered a “threat to democracy.” This characterization stood in stark distinction to Ottawa’s help for the unruly protests that swept Hong Kong in March of 2019 and ended a number of months later.

“In the eyes of some people in Canada, similar protests and demonstrations should be referred to differently in different places.

In Hong Kong, they are ‘human rights movement,’ but in Canada they are ‘a threat to democracy.’ Such stark double standard is unacceptable,” China’s Embassy in Canada stated in an announcement through Twitter on Tuesday.

China’s diplomatic mission famous that Canadian police used quite a lot of crowd management weapons, together with pepper spray, stun grenades and batons, to violently disperse the peaceable protesters that arrange base in Ottawa’s downtown core.

The wave of protests throughout Canada started in mid-January, with tens of hundreds of truckers and different Canadians converged peacefully on Ottawa to hunt the federal government to scrap the COVID-19 vaccine mandates. The protest ultimately united massive swaths of Canadian society and advanced into an illustration in opposition to Trudeau and his authorities.
