NEWSLETTER: British Parliament Calls Attention to Jimmy Lai and Hong Kong’s Declining Freedoms
THE COMMITTEE FOR
FREEDOM IN HONG KONG
The Committee for Freedom in Hong Kong Foundation was set up to fight for Hong Kong and its people as China continues its massive crackdown on the city. Despite legal obligations and treaties and repeated promises that Hong Kong would continue to enjoy its existing freedoms, China has since the 1997 handover from the United Kingdom destroyed Hong Kong’s free media, freedom of speech, free assembly, education, and many other aspects of the democratic way of life that had become the norm in Hong Kong.
Defend political prisoners held in Hong Kong and seek to have them released
Press for political and economic consequences for China’s failure to keep its promises regarding Hong Kong’s freedoms
Support the rule of law, free media and freedom of expression
Urge the business community to stand against China’s assault on freedom, which also imperils Hong Kong’s status as an international centre
