1 October marks 71 years since the founding of the People’s Republic of China – and one year since Hong Kong police began using live ammunition on democracy protesters. Our call to action with our friends in Labour Movement Solidarity with Hong Kong (UK) has brought together internationalists both in the UK and abroad, including politicians, trade unionists, human rights campaigners, and many, many ordinary supporters. Now it’s time to take action!
Against Beijing & Washington,

Please sign, support and share, and protest with us on 1 October! 中文版
