Imprisoned vigil organizer faces further charges I New target


Chow Hang-tung was charged for «inciting subversion» under the new National Security Law on 9 September 2021 and still faces potential 10 years’ imprisonment. At the time of being charged, she was the vice-chair of the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China (the Alliance), the organizer of the annual Hong Kong vigil commemorating the 1989 Tiananmen crackdown since 1990.

There is a new target in Chow's case. Although has been no change in her situation, through the combined efforts of the June 4 tactical campaign, and Chow's case being featured in the Global Protect the Protest campaign as well as Write for Rights, we are extending the appeal deadline of this UA in order to continue the momentum of the pressure on authorities to release Chow. A new target means a chance for renewed and increased action to have a positive change for Chow.

The strategic target for this UA is the new Secretary for Justice, Paul Lam, as he is now the top official of the Hong Kong government to decide whether to drop charges against any individuals. Please continue to send additional copies to Director of the Hong Kong and Macau Affairs Office of the State Council, Xia Baolong.
