I hope there will be support groups organised throughout East Devon, and I'm sure our members and supporters will be participating.

Eleanor is District Councillor for Broadclyst.

Nationally our MPs are doing what they can to support and ensure the prime concern of government is to keep citizens safe. That means constructive scrutiny of decisions and support for necessary actions. The best decisions are ones that have been looked at from all angles, communicated clearly, and implemented well in a timely fashion.

    Beijing's new national security law is a naked power-grab. It bypasses Hong Kong local law-making processes and demonstrates a complete lack of respect for the Joint Declaration.

    I'm sure that this Ramadan must have felt unusual and I know that observing a socially distanced Eid will not be easy either.

    It has been confirmed that Beijing is introducing a resolution that would bypass Hong Kong local law-making processes in order to impose a new 'national security law' on the territory.

    We cannot sit back and watch this violation of rights and freedoms.

    It is clear that China no longer cares for the 'one country, two systems' agreement made between the UK and China during the Handover.
