About the Event
Britons In Hong Kong organised the Flags and Human Chains on 23rd October 2019 at 7:30 pm. Nearly 2,000 people gathered in front of the British Consulate-General Hong Kong to form a human chain, along with a wave of Union Jack Flags. The event's objectives were to voice out supports of the debate initiated by Lord Alton in House of Lords on the topic of "recent political unrest in Hong Kong and calls to offer residents of Hong Kong citizenship in another country", and call for British support to the current Hong Kong situation. Our speaker gave an opening speech to express the gratitude of the participants to Lord Alton, all concerned Lords, and Members of Parliament. Our speaker then led the crowd to chant slogans and sang the British National Anthem.
