We are a completely independent, grassroots, crowdfunded group of individuals who have come together to fight for what was promised to us as Hongkongers. We come from all walks of life and range widely in age and profession, united in our love for our home.
In the last 22 years, we have witnessed China's erosion of our fundamental freedoms, human rights and rule of law. China's conduct has been in breach of the 1984 Sino-British Joint Declaration — a legally binding treaty — which also forms the basis of the 1992 US Hong Kong Policy Act. Shocked and heartbroken at the recent events in Hong Kong and the local government’s intransigence, we organised public fundraisers to call on the international community to stand with Hongkongers in our fight for freedom.
About Our Logo
The logo consists of the Chinese character for “person/people (人)”, repeated five times and converging from around the globe on one place — Hong Kong.
The number five represents the five key demands made by protesters in June 2019. The form resembles the shape of an opened umbrella, a well-known symbol of the democracy movement. The logo also brings to mind the bauhinia, a flower native to Hong Kong and its official symbol.
We want to thank the Chinese propaganda machine and netizens for bringing our logo to sport venues and news outlets across the world.
