HK security law leaves Lennon Walls blank

Blank notes are seen on a Lennon Wall inside a pro-democracy bubble-tea shop in Hong Kong on Friday in response to a new national security law introduced in the city which makes political views, slogans and signs advocating Hong Kong’s independence or liberation illegal. Several pro-democracy restaurants and shops have taken down their Lennon Wall displays expressing support for protests or criticism of China's leadership for fear of arrest.
