A Wave of Freedom for Hong Kong

3,278 supporters

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.

    It’s possible that by signing this I, an avid learner of the Chinese language who wants to visit one day, might face punishment by the CCP censorship army if I ever decide to work there and they check my public internet history. China silencing those that dare to speak against it using the Great Firewall and other means of censorship and information control is a powerful deterrent for corporations, organizations, and individuals but it is far too important that democratic societies take a stance. I add my name to this movement out of ideological principal, even when it acts against practical interest. I hope others like me, as people and as groups take a similar stance.

    We must fight back. A teardown of democracy is an existential threat to our humanity.
