Unite for Democracy: Joint Rally of Ukrainian & Hongkongers

To mark the 33rd anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre, major rallies will be held on 4th June this year in London and across Britain. Chinese democrats and their supporters will also observe this poignant anniversary in countries around the world. A day to remind the CCP regime that democracy should prevail for all the humanity.

It is safe to state that protest related to the Tiananmen Massacre anniversary will not be taking in China or Hong Kong or in other occupied territories this year after the Chinese regime in Beijing enforced the Hong Kong National Security Law on 30th June 2021. Scores of human rights activists from Hong Kong and other parts of China are still locked up in prisons due to their democracy activism.

Protest 1: In London, the “Unite for Democracy” Rally will be held in Whitehall, opposite 10 Downing Street, the official residence of British Prime Minister on Saturday, 4th June from 4pm to 5.30pm. Organisers of this rally include Democracy for Hong Kong, Hong Kong Aid, Hong Kong Liberty, Fight for Freedom Stand with Hong Kong, Hong Kong Assistance and Resettlement Community and Hongkongers in Britain.

Supported by Global Alliance for Tibet & Persecuted Minorities, Stop Uyghur Genocide, Free Tibet and World Uyghur Congress, this rally is co-organised with Support Ukraine and London Euromaidan PLAST.

Leading activists including author Nathan Law, Finn Lau, Simon Cheng, Benedict Rogers and Luke de Pulford will address the rally.

Please come to show your support for democracy and against the threat posed by China and Russia to human rights, the rule of law, freedom and democracy.
