Stand With Hong Kong’s EU branch seeks to keep Hong Kong as a priority on the EU-China strategy by highlighting the EU’s overall interests on and shared values with Hong Kong as well as building ties with the individual EU Member States to support Hong Kong’s fight for democracy and autonomy.

It's been 3 years since 1 million Hong Kongers went to the streets to protest against the extradition bill,  and we are still fighting…

Our main objectives are 

  1. To advocate for a Hong Kong that is free and democratic, with a well established parliamentary democracy to govern its own affairs.

  2. To defend the basic freedoms of Hong Kong’s civil society.

  3. To establish constructive and sustainable connections between diasporic Hongkongers and HongKongers in Hong Kong.

  4. To motivate and support Hong Kong-based Hongkongers to continue their fights for freedom and democracy.
