Hong Kong protesters face personal blackballing.


Here's a perspective from Foreign Policy on the Hong Kong protests, link. The writer notes that Britain didn't allow completely free elections when Hong Kong was a colony either.

But the most disturbing story is that "average people" seen in the protests are being blacklisted when they try to visit mainland China, especially for business or employment, or to see family.  This sounds not so much like NSA spying in the US, but an earlier time when the FBI kept track of Vietnam era protessters.
