After China implements the Hong Kong National Security Law, professors who teach China affairs at several US universities decided to take certain measures, such as coding students’ names or adding warning labels to protect students from the risks of being prosecuted by Chinese authorities this semester, according to the Wall Street Journal.

In this radio feature story, Pei-Yu Lin interviewed the faculty and a recent graduate at the University of Arizona Department of East Asian Studies to find out what they think about the situation.
