Happy Halloween? Hong Kong Police Say No.

Today is Halloween. It’s supposed to be a happy, fun, and perhaps a little bit silly day for people to celebrate with costumes, candy, and parties. But by now, we know that’s not possible in Hong Kong. Not with the brutal monsters in the Hong Kong police making sure that no one has fun.

Just keep scrolling and viewing the videos and pictures, if you have the stomach for it. The behavior of the Hong Kong police is sickening.

He committed the crime of honking his horn. Clearly a dangerous criminal.
Absolutely egregious abuse and brutality. Pepper spray directly into this man’s eyes, for no reason whatsoever. He is a Hong Kong citizen, though, so he’s automatically guilty of something or other.
Committing the crime of being on the sidewalk on Halloween night. Shoot them!
Watch out Hong Kong police. Next time they may throw spit wads!
We cannot be sarcastic about this one. The Hong Kong police abused an American woman. A MOAB directly onto HK police headquarters might be an appropriate response. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GBU-43/B_MOAB
Beautiful? Well, not sure about that, but the HK police seemed to like it.
He committed the crime of talking while wearing a suit. The problem, obviously, is that he wasn’t wearing a tie.
Don’t let anyone tell you that the police just attack and arrest young protesters. Everyone, no matter how young or old, is in danger from the police brutality.
They were committing the obvious crimes of walking and doing journalism. Pepper spray them!
No entertainment allowed! Tear gas all the things!

We really hate to and don’t want to turn this site into a daily commentary on Hong Kong police brutality. This writer feels actually heartbroken that so many posts have been written here about it. But there just is no other honest choice, if we are to follow our conscience. The brutalization and oppression of the Hong Kong people by the Hong Kong government and police must be exposed and brought to light as widely as possible. We know that this site doesn’t get many readers, but if we can help in even this small way, we will continue to do so.

We sincerely hope that in the very near future, the rights and freedom of Hong Kongers will be secured, and we will be able to focus our attention on more positive developments in Chinese communities around the world. #FreeHongKong

TAIPEI Act Passes Senate and House Committee

Today, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed the TAIPEI Act, a bill that is intended to encourage countries to maintain diplomatic relations with Taiwan and to punish with U.S. sanctions countries that break ties with Taiwan in favor of mainland China. The House version of the bill also passed unanimously in the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee.

As reported by Taiwan News, members of the House spoke in favor of formal recognition of Taiwan as an independent country.

Of course, if Taiwan should declare full independence and the U.S. recognizes Taiwan as independent, the CCP will blow a gasket.

Our attitude is that if the CCP vehemently opposes something, it is almost certainly the right thing to do. We encourage the House to quickly pass the TAIPEI act and for President Trump to sign the bill into law.

Beyond that, it’s a fact that the People’s Republic of China and the CCP have never controlled Taiwan, and the CCP’s claims on Taiwan are completely illegitimate. Taiwan is a de facto independent country, and should be recognized as such.

Nevertheless, the CCP’s military threats against Taiwan cannot be ignored. Xi Jinping has said that if Taiwan declares itself an independent country, the CCP will take military action, invading Taiwan to forcibly integrate it into the People’s Republic of China. (Ironically, to claim independence, Taiwan – the Republic of China -would have to give up its historical claims as the legitimate government of the Chinese mainland). So, before declaring independence, Taiwan would need formal defense treaties with the U.S. and neighboring countries. It is unlikely that will happen any time soon, so for now, supporting Taiwan through arms sales, consultation, diplomatic measures (like the TAIPEI Act) and so on is the most likely – and probably the correct – path forward for the time being.

Taiwan is an example of what mainland China could be – a free and open democratic nation where the rights and opinions of its citizens are protected and respected. Its peaceful transition from a dictatorial regime under the Kuomintang to a true democracy is an inspiration to the world.

Will the Hong Kong Police Ever Face Justice?

At this point, can anything more be said about the Hong Kong Police Force’s brutality? They are simply out-of-control thugs. Any resemblance to an actual police force is merely coincidental. They are targeting not just demonstrators, but passers-by, journalists – even elderly people and families – for beatings, pepper-spray, bean-bag rounds and rubber bullets. And the Hong Kong government has issued a broad injunction making it illegal to publish any information about the police that might in some way identify them. They wear masks and remove any identification from their uniforms. Who knows if they are even actual police officers?

These tweets showing what has been happening are just from today.

Journalist committing the crime of journalism, according to HK police. Foreigner committed the crime of being foreign. Obviously they are spies.
These girls committed the crime of walking while drinking something. What were they thinking?
This man committed the crime of getting his face in the way of a tear gas round. After that he committed the crime of being injured, leaving his face bloody, burnt, and smoking.
HK police said she committed the crime of taking pictures they don’t like. She looks dangerous. Arrest her!
Brave HK police punish the crime of walking on the sidewalk by pepper-spraying regular citizens, children, and the elderly. They obviously deserved it.
A kid commits the crime of carrying his books and homework in a backpack. Despicable!
These people committed the crimes of buying and selling medicine in a pharmacy. Only terrorists need medicine!

These kinds of incidents have been happening for weeks, with no end in sight. The Hong Kong police are supposedly trained professionals, regarded as the best police force in Asia. What has happened to them? They’ve turned into a gang of undisciplined thugs, and despite clear evidence of their brutality, the Hong Kong government and police leadership continue to deny there’s any problem. It’s gaslighting.

It’s tiresome to keep on repeating this, but we must: the Hong Kong police must be held accountable for their brutality.

Shaq Dunks on the CCP; VP Pence Backs Pro-Democracy Movement

Without doubt, Shaquille O’Neal is one of the NBA’s greatest and most colorful players of all-time. Of course, he’s retired now, and is working as an analyst/commentator on TNT’s Inside the NBA show with host Ernie Johnson, and fellow former NBA stars Charles Barkley and Kenny Smith.

In a discussion on the show, Shaq has this to say about the controversy over Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey’s tweet support the Hong Kong pro-democracy movement:

As American people, we do a lot of business in China, and they know and understand our values and we understand their values. And one of our best values in America is free speech. We’re allowed to say what we want to say and we’re allowed to speak up on injustices, and that’s just how it goes.

Shaquille O’Neal

Shaq understands what it is to be an American. Cynics might say that he’s retired and very, very wealthy, so it doesn’t cost him anything to say what he said. True, but the NBA as a whole and many of the players and coaches that have backed down to pressure from China are also very, very wealthy. They could also easily afford to forego some money coming from China in order to stand up for American values and for the people of Hong Kong that are fighting to retain those same values: free speech, free assembly, self-representation and universal suffrage, and a fair and independent judiciary and legal system.

As we noted in an article from two weeks ago, “The Love of Money,” greed leads to short-term thinking and bad decisions that often are destructive, not just to those making the poor choices, but also to people around them, and even to entire countries and the whole world. The NBA and some of its coaches and players have been caught in that. To continue making money from basketball fans in China, they have been trying to appease the oppressive and evil CCP. It’s wrong and shortsighted, and we are very happy to see Shaquille O’Neal come down squarely on the side of human rights and Hong Kong’s pro-democracy movement.

Vice President Pence Speaks on Hong Kong and U.S. Relationship China

In recent weeks, we’ve seen numerous U.S. senators and representatives making appearances in Hong Kong, posting tweets and video supporting the Hong Kong pro-democracy movement. The U.S. House of Representatives has passed the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, and it is under consideration in the Senate (it needs to be passed by the Senate as soon as possible; we urge the Senate leadership to schedule it for a vote immediately).

However, the Trump administration has been relatively restrained in its comments on Hong Kong – until today, when Vice President Pence spoke on the subject.

The text of the Vice President’s speech is here: https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefings-statements/remarks-vice-president-pence-frederic-v-malek-memorial-lecture/

And to the millions in Hong Kong who have been peacefully demonstrating to protect your rights these past months, we stand with you. We are inspired by you, and we urge you to stay on the path of nonviolent protest. But know that you have the prayers and the admiration of millions of Americans.

Vice President Pence

The Vice President’s clear statement supporting the pro-democracy movement is heartening. He tied Beijing’s handling of Hong Kong to the outcome of trade negotiations, reiterating earlier statements that “it would be much harder for us to make a trade deal if the authorities resort to the use of violence against protestors in Hong Kong.”

The Vice President also talked about the NBA’s shameful handling of the CCP’s reaction to Daryl Morey’s tweet in support of the Hong Kong demonstrators, saying:

And some of the NBA’s biggest players and owners, who routinely exercise their freedom to criticize this country, lose their voices when it comes to the freedom and rights of the people of China.  In siding with the Chinese Communist Party and silencing free speech, the NBA is acting like a wholly owned subsidiary of the authoritarian regime.

A progressive corporate culture that willfully ignores the abuse of human rights is not progressive; it is repressive.

When American corporations, professional sports, pro athletes embrace censorship, it’s not just wrong; it’s un-American.  American corporations should stand up for American values here at home and around the world.

Vice President Pence

The Vice President’s and Shaquille O’Neal’s remarks on the NBA’s handling of Daryl Morey’s tweet reflect American values. As Shaq said – Daryl Morey was right.

Foreign Policy’s web site has a good article on the Vice President’s speech. Read it at this link:

Who Ya Gonna Believe? Me or Your Lyin’ Eyes?

The title is a pretty well-known phrase in the U.S. often attributed to comedian and film star Groucho Marx, but actually appears to have originally said by his lesser-known (but still famous) brother, Chico Marx, in the film “Duck Soup.” (So the phrase probably actually originated with the scriptwriter for the movie, or perhaps it is even older than the movie, and it’s true origins are unknown).

This little saying is a really succinct form of the gaslighting concept that we wrote about yesterday. It’s a tactic employed again and again by the Hong Kong police – deceiving the public and shamelessly lying to journalists, denying the obvious reality right in front of our eyes. They did it yesterday, denying the obvious targeting of the Hong Kong mosque by the water cannon.

Today, they did the same, but even more egregiously. Listen to Swalikh Mohammed, Superintendent of Cybersecurity for the Hong Kong police, say that the police used the water cannon on a small group of peaceful, non-violent people in front of the mosque to “protect the mosque.”

To protect the mosque? From what? No one was attacking the mosque; the people were just standing in front of the mosque, minding their own business. And if they were protecting the mosque, why did the police (there were several police vehicles accompanying the water cannon truck) immediately drive away after spraying the irritant blue dye all over the front steps and grounds of the mosque?

Do the Hong Kong police think everyone observing what happened and listening to what they say is stupid or blind? It’s obvious nonsense. They obviously don’t fear any repercussions for their brutality and lying. It cannot stand. The Hong Kong police must face sanctions and punishment for their crimes.

Recurring Themes: Brutality and Gaslighting

Frankly, it’s getting a little tiresome to write so many articles about the Hong Kong police force’s brutality against the people of Hong Kong. We could post about some incident of brutality or another literally every day – even multiple times a day. But we really feel like we are left with no choice but to continue. If the world stops paying attention, the situation in Hong Kong very likely would be even worse than it already is. Even though this site doesn’t get many readers, it’s our mission to highlight important news from Chinese communities around the world, and we will continue to do so. What is happening in Hong Kong is one of the most important things happening in the world right now, so we have to write about it.

The brutality and unprofessionalism of the Hong Kong police has been well documented by several respected observers and news organizations: Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, the New York Times, and many others, as well as in dozens, even hundreds, of videos taken by professional and amateur videographers. With cell phone cameras in the hands of just about everyone on the street these days, incidents of police brutality are almost certain to be recorded by someone. In press conferences, the Hong Kong police have been confronted by these videos showing their brutality many times. Not surprisingly, the police have been retaliating against journalists, targeting them for violence and harassment. Like this:

The police officer threw a tear gas grenade directly at reporters covering the Hong Kong demonstrations, hitting or nearly hitting one female reporter in the head, then the police just boarded their busses and left. What was the purpose of that, if not just to harass journalists?

The oppression of organized religion by the CCP is also well-known. Was the CCP behind today’s incident where the oldest mosque in Hong Kong was targeted by a police water cannon spraying blue dye and irritants? Or was it just more brutality, hostility, and unprofessionalism by the Hong Kong police? Whatever the case, a small group of people was standing in front of the mosque, not doing anything illegal, not violent, when a police water cannon truck stopped in front of the mosque, and twice sprayed the front steps and the small group of people.

In this video from above, you can clearly see the small group of people in front on the mosque, then the water cannon truck stopping and firing the water cannon at the people, deliberately dousing the people there and splashing the steps and grounds of the mosque with blue dye and irritant chemicals – and then, like in the case where the police targeted the journalists with a tear gas grenade, they just drove away. It serves no legitimate purpose; it’s just harassment and terrorism.

Making the situation worse was the gaslighting by the Hong Kong police.

As anyone can see by watching these videos, there was nothing accidental about the water cannon being used on the small, peaceful group of people in front of the mosque. It was deliberate targeting of people doing nothing illegal, nothing violent.

In this case, even the tone-deaf, obtuse, stupid Hong Kong government realized that the police had gone too far, and they were forced to apologize:

Carrie Lam had to make an appearance at the mosque to try to smooth things over.

While the Hong Kong police brutalized Hong Kongers, the pro-democracy demonstrators and other ordinary Hong Kong people gathered to clean up the mess that the police made:

Hours later, continuing their gaslighting of the people of Hong Kong, some police showed up at the mosque to stage a photo op and PR stunt to show how concerned they were by “cleaning up” the blue dye that had already been cleaned up. According to reports, they were there for about five minutes:

This kind of gaslighting by the Hong Kong police, denying obvious reality and daring anyone to say anything about it, is a common tactic when confronted with their brutality and law-breaking. Here a Hong Kong police officer says he works for the U.S. FBI when asked for his identification:

A couple of weeks ago, Vasco Williams, a senior officer of the HK police said in a press conference in front of dozens of journalists that a video of the police kicking a member of the “Protect Our Children” group in a yellow vest just showed them kicking a “yellow object.”

What he said was so ridiculous and stupid that he had to walk it back later, but he continued to insist that the police had done nothing wrong, even in the face of video evidence of the officers kicking a prostrate, unresisting person – that is not even a protester!

Throughout the entire 20 weeks (at this writing) of pro-democracy demonstrations, these things come up over and over again. The Hong Kong police brutalize the people and then deny, obfuscate, and outright lie about it. They are gaslighting the people of Hong Kong and the world. This outrageous behavior cannot stand. They must be held accountable.

China Gets a Lesson on the Streisand Effect

One of the emergent behaviors that has come about as a result of the rise of the Internet and social media is the “Streisand effect.” If you haven’t heard of it, this is how Wikipedia defines it:

The Streisand effect is a phenomenon whereby an attempt to hide, remove, or censor a piece of information has the unintended consequence of publicizing the information more widely, usually facilitated by the Internet.[1] It is an example of psychological reactance, wherein once people are aware that some information is being kept from them, their motivation to access and spread it is increased.[2]

Wikipedia at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Streisand_effect

On October 4th, 2019, Houston Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey posted a tweet that said “Fight for Freedom. Stand with Hong Kong.” That’s all. A short, simple tweet in support of the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong. It didn’t disparage or insult China or the Chinese leadership in any way.

Despite the fact that the tweet itself is basically innocuous and was posted by someone that is pretty much unknown outside of Houston and hardcore basketball fans, China (the CCP) went crazy over it, cancelling appearances by NBA players in China, citing it as evidence of US meddling in China’s affairs, and severing ties with the Houston Rockets, among many other completely over the-top reactions to what should have been a very, very minor incident. If China had simply ignored the tweet, it would have amounted to nothing, and by now it would have been largely forgotten.

But instead, the CCP turned it into an international firestorm, forcing the NBA commissioner to issue a statement that was a half-apology that then had to be walked back after he got criticized in the U.S. media. NBA stars were asked for comment and subsequently made fools of themselves. Chinese Internet trolls (五毛党 – the wu mao dang – literally translated as the “50-cent party”) even issued death threats over this innocuous tweet, saying it threatened China’s sovereignty and disrespected the Chinese people. Joe Tsai, owner of the Brooklyn Nets, issued a widely-ridiculed statement “explaining” why the Chinese were so sensitive to the tweet.

And in the end, what was the result of all of the uproar? More people than ever in the United States and internationally are aware of what is happening in Hong Kong and support the people of Hong Kong in their fight for human rights and democracy. At a Brooklyn Nets basketball game at Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, New York, hundreds of people wore black Stand With Hong Kong tee shirts and face masks mocking Carrie Lam’s ridiculous ban on face masks in Hong Kong:

In addition, more and more people are aware of and speaking out against the CCP’s other abuses of human rights. At the same game, demonstrators protested China’s long-standing occupation and subjugation of Tibet:

The backlash against China’s completely over-the-top reaction to Daryl Morey’s tweet perhaps doesn’t exactly fit the Wikipedia definition of the Streisand effect, but the principle is the same: attempts to suppress information – in this case, the CCP’s attempt to suppress support of the Hong Kong pro-democracy movement by anyone associated with the NBA – just leads to more and more people wanting to know why it is happening and being interested in it. A minor incident that would have been nothing quickly turns into a major, widely known and discussed issue.

The CCP’s over-reaction to Daryl Morey’s tweet and the backlash to it is an example not just of the Streisand effect, but also of an “own-goal.” Here’s another similarly embarrassing one:

Japanese butt own goal

The CCP has an incredibly thin skin, constantly over-reacting to minor slights and insults, which shows their lack of maturity and self-confidence. Will they learn a lesson about the Streisand effect and own goals from this incident? Doubtful.

Men and Women in Black

Anyone that has been following the pro-democracy demonstrations in Hong Kong knows that the demonstrators often wear black clothes as part of their unofficial uniform. The Hong Kong police know it too, and often target people wearing black clothes for beatings, pepper spray, and arrest – whether those people are actually taking part in a demonstration or not. Undercover police also wear black to blend in with the demonstrators.

So, after Carrie Lam’s ridiculous ban on masks had no effect whatsoever on reducing the number of demonstrators nor on reducing violence during the demonstrations (not surprising at all, since at least some of the violence is instigated by those same undercover police), the CCP has taken another step to oppress the people of Hong Kong in a way that will no doubt severely impact the pro-democracy movement – they’ve banned export of black clothes from China to Hong Kong!

By taking this extreme measure, the CCP thinks they will no doubt shut down – or at least very nearly shut down – the pro-democracy movement. But here at China Daily News, we’ve heard from reliable sources (ok, really no sources at all) that the pro-democracy demonstrators will retaliate by switching their black gear for this:

Image result for tie-dyed shirt democracy

Hah! Take that, CCP! What color are you going to ban next? All of them?

[Yes, this post is intended to be sarcastic, in case it wasn’t clear.]

Another Step in the Right Direction: House Passes Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act and PROTECT Hong Kong Act

Today, the U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act and the PROTECT Hong Kong Act.

These two acts apply pressure to the Beijing and Hong Kong governments and support the pro-democracy demonstrators in their fight for their human rights, as promised to them in the treaty between the United Kingdom and China, which was registered with the United Nations. Those rights were then enshrined in the Hong Kong Basic Law.

The text of the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act is here: https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/3289/text. The Wikipedia article on the bill says this:

According to the Congressional Research office,[2][3] the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act would direct various departments to assess whether political developments in Hong Kong justify changing Hong Kong’s unique treatment under U.S. law. Specifically, it would:
• Require the Secretary of State to issue an annual certification of Hong Kong’s autonomy to justify special treatment afforded to Hong Kong by the U.S. Hong Kong Policy Act of 1992.[13]
• Require the President to identify persons responsible for the abductions of Hong Kong booksellers and journalists and those complicit in suppressing basic freedoms in Hong Kong, including those complicit in the rendition of individuals, in connection to their exercise of internationally recognized rights, to mainland China for detention or trial, and to freeze their U.S.-based assets and deny them entry into the United States.[13]
• Require the President to issue a strategy to protect U.S. citizens and businesses from the risks posed by a revised Fugitive Offenders Ordinance, including by determining whether to revise the U.S.–Hong Kong extradition agreement and the State Department’s travel advisory for Hong Kong.[13]
• Require the Secretary of Commerce to issue an annual report assessing whether the government of Hong Kong is adequately enforcing both U.S. export regulations regarding sensitive dual-use items and U.S. and U.N. sanctions, particularly regarding Iran and North Korea.[13]
• Make clear that visa applicants shall not be denied visas on the basis of the applicant’s arrest, detention or other adverse government action taken as a result of their participation in the nonviolent protest activities related to pro-democracy advocacy, human rights, or the rule of law in Hong Kong.[13]

Wikipedia article on Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act

For the pro-democracy movement, the first, second, and last items are likely the most significant.

First, if Hong Kong’s autonomy is not guaranteed, it may lose its special status as a trading partner with the U.S. This will put enormous pressure on Hong Kong’s business people. They have significant influence on the Hong Kong government, and to some degree on the Beijing government. The CCP is trying to replace the Hong Kong financial markets with markets in Shenzhen and Shanghai, but even if that is ultimately successful, it will take time – probably some years. Much of the capital from the west that finances China’s business enters through Hong Kong, so losing special status would be a blow not just to Hong Kong, but also to mainland China. It is not something Beijing can just ignore; though the CCP will no doubt downplay its importance.

Next, the second bullet point contains a bombshell in the clause that says that the President must “identify persons…complicit in suppressing basic freedoms in Hong Kong…and to freeze their U.S.-based assets and deny them entry into the United States.” That is big. Members of the Hong Kong government and police, as well as members of the Beijing government identified by the U.S. administration as having oppressed the human rights of the people of Hong Kong risk losing investments and property in the U.S. and being denied entry. Given that many wealthy Chinese from the mainland and from Hong Kong have investments and property in the U.S., it is a powerful statement.

Finally, the last bullet point says that the pro-democracy demonstrators are welcome in the U.S. regardless of whether Hong Kong or mainland China says they have committed crimes, as they should be. Fighting for one’s natural human rights is not a crime.

The PROTECT Hong Kong Act is perhaps more symbolic, in that it will restrict the sale of tear gas and other non-lethal munitions to the Hong Kong government and police by U.S. companies. Those non-lethal munitions can undoubtedly be sourced from other countries, so the impact on brutality and violence by the Hong Kong police is probably limited. Nevertheless, it does send another message to the Hong Kong government that the U.S. will not be complicit in its violation of the rights of the demonstrators.

We continue to urge the U.S. government to take additional measures to pressure the Beijing and Hong Kong governments to honor the promises that they have made in formal treaties and in the Basic Law, to respect the rights of all citizens of Hong Kong to self-representation, free speech, free assembly, and a free and impartial legal system (among others). In addition, there must be a free, impartial, and effective investigation into the clearly documented acts of brutality committed by the Hong Kong police. The U.S. has additional legal and diplomatic tools at its disposal, including designating individuals and organizations under the Global Magnitsky Act and placement on the Department of Commerce Entity List. Despite the shameful actions of a few, the vast majority of Americans support the pro-democracy demonstrations. Continued support by prominent Americans, senators, and representatives encourages the demonstrators and adds pressure to the Beijing and Hong Kong governments to take necessary steps to guarantee Hong Kong’s rights and freedom. Americans in a position to speak up in support should do so, not hide behind moral equivalence and platitudes to protect their wallets. Have moral courage to do what is right.

Support the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act

The U.S. Congress is set to debate (and should pass) the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy act soon (tomorrow in the U.S. House of Representatives). Today, massive rallies were held in Hong Kong in support of the bill.

Tens of thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands, of Hong Kongers took part in the rallies, asking for U.S. support of the bill.

As we’ve said before, the U.S. Congress should pass the bill as soon as possible, and President Trump should sign it into law. In addition, we strongly urge President Trump’s administration to designate members of the Hong Kong legislative council, including Carrie Lam, and the entire Hong Kong police force under the Global Magnitsky Act. Further measures should also be taken to add some Hong Kong individuals and companies to the Entities List by the U.S. Commerce Department, preventing them from doing business in or with the U.S. Twenty-eight Chinese companies and organizations were added to the Entities List a few days ago for their part in oppression of the Uyghurs and other Chinese Muslim populations. The people of Hong Kong are also suffering human rights abuses by the Hong Kong government and police, so the Hong Kong government and police, and their supporters in the Hong Kong business community, should be similarly placed on the Entities List.
