Campaign aims and objectives

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

  1. Take action against the inhumane and violent crackdown of the 2019 protests in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region
  2. 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.)
  3. Engage in peaceful, productive and informed dialogue on the issue of Hong Kong across political differences
  4.  Lend international solidarity to Hong Kong in the city’s greater movement to safeguard freedoms of speech, press, assembly, education, and democratic reform
