Editor’s note for Thursday, July 30, 2020

A note from today's editor of the SupChina Access newsletter.

My thoughts today: Another day, another assault on civil society on Hong Kong. Read on for more bad news.

Our word of the day is DQ, Hong Kong media slang for the disqualification of candidates running for the Legislative Council, or in more proper Chinese: 被取消立法會參選資格 bèi qǔxiāo lìfǎhuì cānxuǎn zīgé.
