Learn and Fight Against Hong-Kong Criminal Extracition Law...

Don’t be fooled! “Suspension” is not “withdrawal”! All the human rights defenders in Hong Kong, including foreigners, are still at risk of being sent to China, despite Hong Kong government, which claimed the suspension of the Extradition Law last week; unjust trials await protesters...

As long as the bill is still within the legislative procedure, Carrie Lam, the Chief Executive of Hong Kong could re-launch it and make it pass through the parliament meeting at an unexpected speed by cutting the discussion time and skipping critical procedures. Several devil laws passed under her governance with the same “SUSPENSION” tactic! Thus, we demand international civil societies to join us and scrap the Extradition bill!

If the Extradition Bill is passed in Hong Kong, it will be turned from a shelter for prisoner of conscience into the entrance of hell. A hell where torture, detention, enforced disappearance, false accusation, and unfair trials are ordinary happenings in the name of RE-EDUCATION and NATIONAL SECURITY. Do you know what is going on in #Xinjiang?

WE are all potential fugitives. WE, who have been taking action for freedom of speech, freedom of religion, for the right to an independent juridical system and WE who provide support to human rights defenders in China.

YOU could be the next fugitive, as a FOREIGN VISITOR, if you join the Hong Kong memorial assembly for #Tiananmen massacre or any other events that may be seen as “sensitive issues” for China – that include #Me Too and #selling history books.
In the 21st Century, many human rights abuses are committed for financial gain and the European Union has no excuse to allow it to happen. Let’s call the European Parliament to apply the Global Magnitsky Act at EU-level and take the lead in allying with other G20 leaders, in order to build a coalition to address human right violations in China!

Take action now to save human right defenders in Hong Kong!

'To MPEs and G20 leaders,

We are a group of human rights advocates from different countries. We are deeply concerned the suspended Extradition Bill will potentially destroy the independent judicial system of Hong Kong and threaten the international human rights community. The legal system of Hong Kong makes human rights defenders and advocates possible to continue their contributions to address our shared values among global civil society. China's repression has reached new depths in recent years, with the worst abuses now against the 13 million Turkic Muslims, including Uyghurs, Kazakhs and other Turkic Muslims in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR.). Hong Kong also takes the unique role of providing shelter for human rights defenders in China, which is now losing its judicial independence.

We urge the EU and the G20 leaders to respond strongly and decisively, by imposing sanctions against those Chinese government, Communist Party officials and entities that are complicit in the ongoing human rights abuses in Xinjiang and Hong Kong.

We urge the EU to impose the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act sanctions against Chen Quanguo, XUAR Communist Party Secretary and Politburo Member; Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor, the 4th and current Chief Executive of Hong Kong; and other XUAR and HKSAR officials and entities complicit in gross violations of human rights.

Since the EU has played a critical role as a global human rights actor, we plead that you don’t overlook China’s severe human rights violations in favor of continued economic engagement. We ask that you work to expand the “Entity list” to business and other entities that have provided technology, training or equipment to XUAR in mass detention and surveillance, including Chinese companies like Hikvision, Dahua and Huawei.

Please act immediately so as to ensure the EU is not assisting through passivity, directly or indirectly, in the continuation of the vast civilian surveillance system in Xinjiang, XUAR or the human rights abuses in Hong Kong.

Best Regards,'
