Time: 12:00 - 15:30
Venue: Marble Arch
As part of the Global Campaign for Hong Kong, Hong Kong Liberty are co-hosting with different organisations to hold a London Rally at the Marble Arch on June 12.
The year 2021 marks the 2nd anniversary of the 2019 Hong Kong Revolution, the 180th anniversary of modern Hong Kong and the 80th anniversary of the Battle of Hong Kong. As such, a mini-exhibition (12:00-12:30) will be set up prior to the static rally, commemorating the three anniversaries of Hong Kong.
Most importantly, we are honoured to have cross-party parliamentarians attending the London Rally, including Sir Iain Duncan Smith MP, Stephen Kinnock MP and Alistair Carmichael MP.
After the static rally at the Marble Arch, we will march towards the Trafalgar Square and have the second round of speeches by different guests.
Besides the parliamentarians, the list of guest speakers includes Benedict Rogers, Colombe Cahen-Salvador, Finn Lau, Jaya Pathak, Luke de Pulford, Nathan Law, Simon Cheng and more.
【 “612” Second Anniversary | Rally in Central London 】
Date: Saturday 12th June, 2021
Time: 15:30 - 18:30
Venue: Leicester Square
Organiser: Justitia Hong Kong
On 12 June 2019, the Hong Kong Government introduced the Fugitive Offenders amendment bill to the Legislative Council for a second reading despite mass opposition. The move sparked the first intense confrontation between protesters and the police, who deployed hundreds rounds of tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse the crowds. It was the start of a wave of protests and clashes in Hong Kong…
Subsequently, China imposed the National Security Law in Hong Kong in serious violation of the Sino-British Joint Declaration and damaged the high degree of autonomy in Hong Kong. The UK government then introduced a new route to immigration to BN(O) passport holders and announced a funding of £43 million to support new arrivals in order to make true of its promises to protect and defend democracy and freedom in Hong Kong.
To commemorate the deeply saddening and unforgettable events of “612”, a day when Hongkongers woke up to their national identity, and to express our gratitude to the UK government, Justitia Hong Kong will organise a rally on the second anniversary of “612” on Saturday, 12 June 2021 at Leicester Square. You are welcome to come join us to give your support!
“612” Second anniversary | Rally in Central London – Theme
• The reason for HongKonger diaspora
• How HongKonger contribute to the UK?
• How people can help?
Guests will be invited to speak at the rally, and we will hand out English flyers to explain to the British people about the BN(O) visa scheme and related topics, with an emphasis on the historical connections between the UK and Hong Kong. We will also promote the Hong Kong national identity to the international community and to express our gratitude to the UK government for providing this new immigration route to BN(O) passport holders. We will urge the UK government to continue to sanction the CCP and demand that the CCP to take full responsibility for undermining the freedom of Hongkongers and for destroying autonomy in Hong Kong.
The rally will be jointly held with other Hongkongers in Manchester and Reading.
Our Myanmar friends in the UK, Hongkongers in Britain, Mr. Simon Cheng from Hongkongers in Britain, and Mr. Jabez Lam of the Hackney Chinese Community Service will also be joining us on the day of the rally to show their support.
On the same day, another 6.12 rally named “Dawns of Freedom | Relay the Light | Global Rallies for Hong Kong” will also be held in London at different times. Please feel free to support and together we will make our voices for the freedom of Hong Kong heard!
Under CCP’s suppression, Hongkongers have to fight until the end! See you on 6.12
