One Year On

2020 - 2021

7 Jul 2021 marks one year since we have started a journey from Hong Kong to the UK, after dramatic changes in our hometown. From organising street protests, chanting slogans, to engaging in evidence sessions in parliament, publishing papers - we are walking the talk, involving ourselves fully and being part of the very the heart of the UK community.

We shall never forget democracy and freedom is common sense in society.

Here is a lookback and review on what we have achieved together in the past year.
