Fridays For Freedom: Free Hong Kong

<REGISTER TO RECEIVE THE SOCIAL MEDIA PACKAGE>

Hong Kong’s freedoms and civil rights have been under constant attack by China for years, but 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.

We are working, through the Wave of Freedom campaign, to push for major democracies to ally, counter China's crackdown on dissent, and Stand With Hong Kong! As part of this campaign, we are organizing “Fridays For Freedom”. People across the world organize and partake in protests to make sure that world leaders don't have a choice but to protect Hong Kong.

PARTICIPATE ON YOUR OWN

If you cannot make it to a protest because of restrictions in your country, take a picture with sign "Free Hong Kong!" in front of a Chinese Embassy (or in their living room if you can't make it to an Embassy or key landmark). Then, share it on social media, tagging 5 friends and us! 

Fill the form on this page to receive a social media package to participate in the action, regular updates, and you will let our team know that you are on our side!
