Rally: Global Day of Action
We and other organizations held rallies in Berlin and Frankfurt, respectively. We gratefully thank all the MPs and leaders of human rights organizations working for Hong Kong, and thank you for enduring the rain to attend the rally in Frankfurt!
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.
Photo Gallery: … Ex’d…
… Ex’d … is a media art exhibition that documents the most critical movements in Hong Kong history, from the umbrella movement in 2014 to the bill to amend the extradition law in 2019. It was organized by Waldern-Kunstausstellungen and our e.V..
At the closing ceremony, a representative of our e.V. delivered a speech and many Hong Kongers have come and supported us.
Rally: Solidarity with Hong Kong
On May 29th at 11 am the FDP made a motion in the Bundestag with the title “Condemn the Security Act for Hong Kong”.
At the same time, we and the Internationaler Gesellschaft für Menschenrechte (IGFM) organized a rally against the new National Security Act in Hong Kong. A board member of the IGFM Mr. Hubert Körper and a board member of the Asia Vision Foundation Mr. Man-Yan Ng also came by. The CDU MEP Mr. Michael Gahler was unfortunately unable to be present, but he wrote a letter that was read out by Mr. Körper to support us. Even though it was Friday, a lot of Hong Kong people stopped by too. Besides singing songs and chanting slogans, we read the open letter to the German government. We also took collage photos with participants to support democracy in Hong Kong.
