The campaign was launched in response to Hong Kong’s 2019 pro-democracy protests.
It aims to raise awareness & mobilise LSE’s international student body to
- Take action against the inhumane and violent crackdown of the 2019 protests in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region
- Foster understanding of the Hong Kong pro-democracy movements and its underlying complexities (e.g. ‘One Country, Two Systems’, media representation, international relations, colonial history and identity, etc.)
- Engage in peaceful, productive and informed dialogue on the issue of Hong Kong across political differences
- Lend international solidarity to Hong Kong in the city’s greater movement to safeguard freedoms of speech, press, assembly, education, and democratic reform
