OLD SESSION INFO
We would like to give you a quick overview of the current situation in Hongkong and about the work that the loose community of Hongkongers living in Germany have done so far. In the second part we will discuss on how to take part yourself.
Who are we?
Inspired by the strategy of the protest in Hongkong there is no single structure, no leader for the movement in Germany. We stand for ourselves and so can you!
To whom this may concern?
You know about the situation in HK and need someone to talk about it, you read the news but don't know how to show your support? Or maybe you have great ideas but you don't know how to get people together? You don't know how to be part of a leaderless movement? Join us - be like water.
This session might be repeated later this day if it resonates with people, we encourage you all to go out and start your own things as well, take this as an initial spark.
Introduction of Germany Stands With Hongkong
On June 9, 2019, over 1 million people in Hong Kong gathered to protest against an extradition bill proposed by our government, in favor of the authoritarian Communist Party of China. Fast forward to today, the city is now under constant threat of deteriorating freedom and violation of human rights. More than 6000 People have been arrested as of now.
As a community of Hongkongers living in Germany, we share the worries and sobs with those living in our home town. With the mission to support the democratic movement, HongKongers in Germany Concern Group was therefore founded and has grown organically since then.
Our goal is to raise awareness and to support the ongoing democratic movement in Hong Kong. The group has no leader nor political background. All of us have gathered for one shared belief—Hong Kong is a place we call home.
