Hong Kong Alliance makes strategic staffing adjustments in response to the dire political environment

Press release 10 July 2021

In the past year, Hong Kong’s political environment has sharply deteriorated. As part of Hong Kong’s civil society, the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China (Hong Kong Alliance) has been particularly affected by the increasingly severe and obvious political repression. Hong Kong Alliance has always adhered to the same core principles and beliefs while also responding to changes in the political situation from time to time. Recently, after many discussions, the Hong Kong Alliance Standing Committee decided to take the following two preventive measures:

First, strategically reducing the number of Standing Committee members. The current Alliance Standing Committee has been reduced from 20 to 14 members. Recently, seven current Standing Committee members resigned. These include Richard Tsoi Yiu-cheong, Mak Hoi-wah, Lo Wai-ming, Wong Chi-keung, Lun Chi-wai, Leung Kwok-wah and Chiu Yan-loy. Their resignations reduce the number of current Standing Committee members by half. The remaining seven Standing Committee members include chairman Lee Cheuk-yan, vice-chairmen Albert Ho and Chow Hang-tung, all three of whom have lost their liberty.

Second, dismissing all Alliance staff. In response to increasing political and legal risks, the Standing Committee believes that every effort should be made to ensure the safety of our staff. Therefore, Hong Kong Alliance will terminate the employment of all employees at the end of July and will offer better compensation than the standards stipulated in labour laws.

Hong Kong Alliance recognizes that the decrease in the number of Standing Committee members, the dismissal of all employees, and the withdrawal of some members of the organization in recent months will have an impact on future work and asks for the understanding of all parties. However, even in the face of such difficulties and challenges, Hong Kong Alliance will continue to persevere step by step.


The Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China (the “Alliance“) was established on May 21st 1989 with the purpose of supporting patriotic democratic movements in China. It is a large grassroots pro-democracy advocacy group in Hong Kong.

The Alliance has five operational goals
  • Release the dissidents
  • Rehabilitate the 1989 pro-democracy movement
  • Demand accountability of the June 4th massacre
  • End one-party dictatorship
  • Build a democratic China
Our Story

We are a child of the 89′ pro-democracy movement.

On 20th May, 1989, Premier Li Peng declared martial law. This sparked one of the largest protest ever happened in Hong Kong the next day, attended by over 1 million Hong Kong citizens. The formation of the “Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China" was announced during the march. A series of demonstration, meeting and even fund-raising concerts  [video] were held in the following weeks, in tandem with the student movement in Beijing.

Then June 4th struck, and China went silent.

Yet we have persevered and lent our voices to the voiceless. Since then, we have organised the annual June 4 candlelight vigil at Victoria Park, which is the largest Tiananmen vigil in the world and one of the only three allowed on Chinese soil (the others are in Macau and Taiwan). In 2009, the 20th vigil was attended by 200,000 people. We provide integral support to activists in China, Hong Kong and overseas, helping them raise humanitarian aid and campaign for the plight of many. We also organize protests, forums and workshops in order to educate and engage the public in China’s current affairs, and have published several books throughout the year. We run the “Data Centre on Chinese Democratic Movement", a depository of Tiananmen and democratic-movement related publications, photos, videos, momentos, news cuttings and more, intended to preserve pieces of history that so many people in power have worked ceaselessly to erase but continue to stand strong. The data centre is open to the public.

The child from 1989 has now grown into a self-assured adult. And we shall continue to bear the torch of civic power that was lit at Tiananmen Square all those years ago and keep the blazing flame of resistance alive until the day democracy emerges in China. Or perhaps even after that.

We hope that the martyrs of Tiananmen would be proud.
