Rally: Protest against EU-China Conference

 

On that day, there was a video conference between the leaders of the European countries and Xi Jinping, the President of the People’s Republic of China. We then met with some of the blackmailed Tibetans, Uighurs, Mongols and human rights organizations in front of the Chancellery and expressed our demand that the EU should prioritize its core values and not sacrifice human rights in order to trade with China. MPs like Margarete Bause and Gyde Jensen were with us and each gave a speech to support us.

Rally: Protest against the visit of Wang Yi

 

As the Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi visited Berlin on that day, our association already published a statement calling on Federal Foreign Minister Heiko Maas to address human rights issues with Wang Yi, including Hong Kong, the Uyghur and Tibetan minorities and the Christians. We were honored to be able to attend the gathering organized by the Society for Threatened Peoples in Berlin and were represented by Ms. Amy Siu, who read our statement.
Our statement emphasizes that Germany, as a country that values ​​freedom and democracy, should make its position clear, insist on respect for human rights and not be subject to an authoritarian state, because all countries should not let any regime stand above the law.

Karlsruhe

Forum: The situation in Hong Kong & the persecution of Chinese Christians

 

In Hong Kong, a large part of the population stands up against the attempts of the Chinese government to limit freedoms in the city.

We were invited to attend the forum, Die Lage in Hongkong & die Verfolgung Chinesischer Christ*innen, has provided an effective platform for us to deliver the messages of what is happening in Hong Kong to Germany.
The attendees, who are mainly Germans, have shown their high concerns for the situation in Hong Kong. In and after the forum, they have actively asked questions and discussed with us and the speakers. We have not only discussed about the human right issues, but also the lackage of face masks there. It was such an honour for us to be invited and get so many supports from them. We hereby also want to take the opportunity to show our appreciation again to Mr. Wong Yik Mo, one of the speakers, for speaking up for Hong Kong.

Stuttgart

Rally: Solidarity with persecuted groups in China

Since the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was published 71 years ago, human rights have become a universal value. But the human rights situation under the rule of the Chinese Communist Party has never improved, in fact it has steadily deteriorated.
We were invited to the event, Solidarität mit verfolgten Gruppen in China (Solidarity with persecuted groups in China), in Stuttgart for the very first time.
On this important festive day of China, Chinese New Year, we have talked with a lot of people, not only Germans and Hongkongers, but also some Chinese, Indians, etc. Most of them came by to express their concerns on the situation of Hong Kong. They have also shown their supports to Hongkongers.
