Reuters: In the last 2 weeks, Hong Kong publisher Raymond Yeung made changes to a draft copy of a book entitled "To Freedom," replacing the word "revolution" with "protests," tweaking a banned slogan and cutting passages that advocate independence.

Reuters: The changes were hard to make, he told Reuters, but impossible to avoid since China passed a national security law on June 30, making the broadly defined crimes of secession, subversion, terrorism and collusion with foreign forces punishable by up to life in prison.

Reuters: "This is history. This is the truth," he said, holding up the book with blue sticky flags on many pages to mark changes made because of the new law.

Reuters: HK authorities say freedom of speech remains intact, but in the past two weeks public libraries have taken some books off the shelves, shops have removed protest-related decorations and the slogan "Liberate Hong Kong! Revolution of our times" has been declared illegal.

Reuters: The Hong Kong Trade Development Council, which organizes the annual Hong Kong Book Fair, told exhibitors not to display what it called "unlawful books" at this week's planned fair, but did not explain further.

Reuters: The council postponed the fair at the last minute on Monday due to a recent spike in cases of the new coronavirus. It did not specify a new date for the event, which draws about 1 million visitors.
