A Wave of Freedom for Hong Kong

Hong Kong’s freedoms and civil rights have been under constant attack by China for years. The situation has been dramatically deteriorating lately with the introduction of draconian new laws. Yet, China winning its war on democracy and civil rights in Hong Kong would not only be terrible for Hongkongers; it also would have long term consequences on the world. If authoritarian states like China are left unchecked, democracy might soon become a dream of the past.

However, no country alone has the economic or diplomatic leverage to oppose this dictatorship and protect Hong Kong. That is why NOW!’s ‘Wave of Freedom’ campaign works for the creation of an international coalition of major democracies (the D-10) to coordinate responses and implement measures - such as economic sanctions - to safeguard Hong Kong’s freedoms and democracy.

It will not be easy, but it is necessary. Those that love freedom and democracy, and do not want to see the dark cloud of authoritarianism spreading around the world, must stand together. Yesterday it was Tibet, today is Hong Kong, and tomorrow it could be your country’s turn. Only by creating a Wave of Freedom that crosses borders and continents can we safeguard our future. 


Join our #FridaysForFreedom by taking a picture of yourself with a sign saying "Free Hong Kong!" in front of a Chinese Embassy (or in your living room)! Click here for the details.

    I had 30+ years in HK and has been visualizing our home town going to the worst era.

    Justice is being manipulated, and young lives are sacrificing.

    Probably it’s the worst part of humanity with a gun
