Beijing ruling bars Hong Kong lawmakers from taking office

Two pro-independence, newly elected lawmakers from Hong Kong have been "disqualified" from taking office after they refused to take oaths in Beijing. The two lawmakers have been calling for Hong Kong's complete independence from China, and have attempted to change the words of oaths, and degraded China. Although China is technically able to pursue this intervention with its legal rights, Hong Kong is claiming against it. Hong Kong was in chaos with a number of protests, scuffles, and 4 arrests on Sunday night.
