"United Daily News" said that the MAC does not know whether it is "stealing the title" or "stealing the concept". "Anyway, humanitarian assistance has become a service exchange. Even the topics have been changed. Will it really be helpful? "A comment published in the China Times Newspaper stated bluntly that when the Hong Kong National Security Law was passed, many groups that had originally advocated "Hong Kong independence" were disbanded one after another, and active "Hong Kong independence" elements stated that they would no longer participate in supporting "Hong Kong independence".
