Panel discussions for the anniversary of the anti-extradition movement

反送中運動一週年紀念分享會

One year ago, the most participated protest movement erupted in Hong Kong to oppose the erosion of the core values enjoyed by the city: freedom from fear and an independent judiciary. Some protesters regarded this struggle being the last fight against authoritarianism while the Hong Kong government resorted to a heavy-handed law enforcement approach to a political problem.

To this day, only one of the five demands laid out by the protesters has been met. Recently the Chinese government doubled down on suppression by bypassing the Hong Kong legislature to make national security law for Hong Kong on its own.

The road ahead will be tough. Is the struggle in the last twelve months in vain? We invite several distinguished moderators and panelists to share the observations from their vantage points.

There will be two panel discussions. One in Cantonese and one in English. They will be live stream through Facebook and YouTube.


一年前,香港歷史上最大規模的抗議運動爆發了。為的是捍衛香港的核心的價值:免於恐懼的自由和獨立的司法系統。部份示威者視這次抗爭為對抗威權的最後一戰,而香港政府漠視民眾的訴求,以圖用高壓維穩手段來解決一個政治問題。

至今,示威者的五大訴求只有一項落實。最近,中國政府更繞過香港的立法機關,直接為香港制訂國家安全法,用更嚴厲的措施來壓制抗議運動。

前路艱辛。十二個月的抗爭是否就付之東流?我們邀請了幾位傑出的嘉賓分享他們的觀察。

紀念活動將有兩個分享會。一個粵語,一個英語。分享會將以臉書和油管現場直播。
