Hi this is the Wiki. We try to update it regularly in order to update you on the current struggle for freedom and democracy and the ongoing protests in Hongkong. We want you to get as much involved in the cause as you would like, get connected, form your own political circles and stage events. Feel free to get in touch with us!

1. News / Updates

IMPORTANT - 19.01.2020
Am kommenden Sonntag findet in Berlin eine Demo zu Menschenrechten in China statt. Wie ihr vielleicht wisst werden religiöse Minderheiten wie beispielsweise die Uiguren in Xinjiang und auch Christen in ganz China verfolgt und teilweise in sog. "Umerziehungslagern" zu Hunderttausenden interniert. Wenn sich China nicht in die Karten gucken lässt, müssen wir umso genauer hingucken. Wir fragen was passiert in Tibet oder in Hongkong oder im südchinesische Meer? Uns darf nicht egal sein, wie mit Praktizieren Falun Gongs oder den Arbeiterinnen in den Minen des Kongos umgegangen wird. Und um auf diese Themen aufmerksam zu machen gehen wir diesen Sonntag auf die Straße. Wir freuen uns über jede zusätzliche Person. Los gehts um 13:30 Uhr. Mehr Infos findet ihr hier:
oder bei dem Welt-Uiguren-Zusammenschluss

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.

We organize and support a diverse range of events in Germany such as rallies, educational programs, art exhibitions, and discussion panels. We also collaborate and align closely with Hongkonger in Deutschland e.V, with the goal to support and optimize resource utilization for facilitating relevant activities held in Germany.
