After Canada started accepting Hong Kong protesters as refugees, China responds by threatening the “health and safety” of 300,000 Canadians living in HK.

And you wonder why China is now viewed more negatively by countries around the world than ever…
Here is the earlier article about a front liner who escaped:

“Near the end of his time in HK, fearful for his safety, he ended up hiding in a cave under a building…He is very thankful for Canada’s decision, a country he said shares common values with HK.”
The threat from China's ambassador to Canada only strengthens our willpower to support those of us seeking asylum abroad.

Throughout Hong Kong's history, Canada and Canadians have always held a special place in the hearts and minds of Hong Kongers.


@JustinTrudeau hits back at China after threat to Canadians in Hong Kong

🇨🇦 Prime minister says Canada will ‘stand up loudly’ for human rights after China’s ambassador against welcoming Hong Kong pro-democracy activists.…
@JustinTrudeau Canada's official opposition party @CPC_HQ leader @erinotoole called on the Chinese diplomat “to fully retract his remarks and issue a public apology. Should the Ambassador fail to do so expeditiously, we expect the government to withdraw his credentials.”

Fight for Freedom. Stand with Hong Kong.(SWHK) has taken note of @finnlau_cd announcement yesterday.

Since July 2019, SWHK has been a grassroots activist organisation advocating for our city’s freedom and democracy amid unprecedented CCP encroachment.

We are the volunteers who've operated SWHK in the past 18 months. For branding purposes, we use SWHK for our anglophone constituency. We took on the name of Team Laam Chau (攬炒團隊) in Hong Kong with Finn’s blessing.

In operations to date, we are one and the same. You don't know us but you know our work.

Every little win for Hong Kong belongs to its people for their support has made it possible. We want to thank you for not letting us walk alone.

Letters from Chinese dissidents to Hong Kong protesters

“Living under totalitarianism requires you to live among lies, to hate those who bring danger, to praise your leaders, to feel happy, to hate democratic countries and love your autocratic motherland.”…
“You must see that totalitarianism turns you into the kind of person you hate. Many people around you will be like that. Most likely, you will have to live that life in part but do not give up hope.

Do not believe that this is the life Hong Kong people should be forced to live.”
“I continue to be inspired by the spirit of resistance in Hong Kong… The resistance has not ended…

HK today is an island like West Berlin besieged by the Soviet Union, calling and waiting for help.

Hong Kong’s struggle was never just about HK people. It affects everyone.”

Seek, and ye shall find

The determination, bravery, blood and tears of every Hongkongers who #FightForFreedom are the strongest motivation for our 1 year long advocacy work.
Yesterday, one of our main call for actions has been met.

This is just the beginning of our story. 1/7
In June 2019, an exasperated LIHKG forum user called for help to revoke foreign citizenship of senior HK officials for trampling on #Hongkongers’ freedom. In less than a month, like-minded volunteers established this advocacy group *Fight for Freedom. Stand with Hong Kong.* 2/7
Hongkongers have endearingly adopted both our names, "Laam Chau" in Cantonese, as protest slogans. In our unity and resolve, we along with our fellow compatriots have come this far - Yesterday, the @USTreasury announced sanction regime on 11 top #HKSAR and Chinese officials. 3/7

Dear fellow teammates,

As one of the few only surviving international organizations that have their roots firmly in Hong Kong, we will not back down.

We will double down on our fight for Hong Kong in the US, UK, Europe, Japan, and via @ipacglobal.
2/ We know that going forward will be difficult and would require sacrifices that we cannot fathom before, but we are sure that when we look back in the future, we will be proud to say that these are the finest hours of the #HongKongers.
"Fight For Freedom. Stand With Hong Kong." team thanks you for your trust and support. We hereby announced that we have just passed our 1.6M goal on our gofundme.

We will keep fighting for Hong Kong till the day Hong Kong is liberated.

Exactly 31 years ago at this moment, Chinese troops entered #Tiananmen Sq. after opening fire on peaceful protesters.

In memory of the 1989 victims, this is what Raymond Yeung, who lost an eye in a peaceful protest, has to say about the Chinese Communist Party (CCP):
In June 1989, hundreds of souls in Tiananmen Square were lost in the fight for democracy from the CCP.

When bullets started flying and tanks moved through the streets of Beijing, Hong Kong became the last beacon of hope for freedom in China.
For 30 years, tens of thousands of #Hongkongers have kept candles lit in 4th June vigils to remember the fallen.

This year, the vigil is banned in Hong Kong for the first time ever, after a year of our #FightForFreedom and China forcing the #NationalSecurityLaw on Hong Kong.
