Along with suspending visits by official US military ships and aircraft, Hua said China would sanction organizations including the National Endowment for Democracy, the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs, Human Rights Watch, the International Republican Institute, Freedom House, and others that she said had "performed badly" in the Hong Kong unrest.

In more normal times, several US naval ships visit Hong Kong annually, a rest-and-recreation tradition that dates back to the pre-1997 colonial era and one that Beijing allowed to continue after the handover from British to Chinese rule.

China will impose new diplomatic sanctions against the U.S.in response to Congress's show of support for Hong Kong protesters, the Chinese foreign ministry announced on Monday, but will steer clear of economic sanctions to avoid exacerbating an economic slowdown.

"China urged the USA side to stop interfering in Hong Kong affairs and China's internal affairs", Hua said, adding: "China will take necessary actions in accordance with the situation to safeguard the stability and prosperity of Hong Kong, as well as national sovereignty, security and development interests", Hua said".

Non-governmental organisations (NGOs) targeted by sanctions include Human Rights Watch, Freedom House, the National Endowment for Democracy, the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs and the International Republican Institute.

More tear gas was sacked at night after dozens of hardcore protesters set up roadblocks and vandalized some shops and restaurants linked to China.

"These organizations deserve to be sanctioned and must pay a price", Hua said.

Derek Mitchell, the president of the National Democratic Institute, said in Hong Kong last week that accusations it was colluding with protesters were "patently false".

When President Trump signed the Hong Kong legislation last week, he said he was doing so "out of respect for President Xi, China, and the people of Hong Kong".

The bill also says the USA should allow Hong Kong residents to obtain United States visas if they have been arrested for being part of non-violent protests.

"For many people, Hong Kong has become an unfamiliar place". The advertising industry wants "to take the first step to encourage other businesses to participate in the strike to give more pressure".

Marching near the waterfront on the Kowloon side of Victoria Harbour, they sought to keep the pressure on city leader Carrie Lam after pro-democracy candidates won district council elections a week earlier. She said sanctions will apply to nations that act "badly" over the recent and continuous unrest in Hong Kong.

The increasingly violent rallies have hammered the retail and tourism sectors, with mainland Chinese visitors abandoning the city in droves.
