Activist Exchange : Notes from Black Liberation and Hong Kong

A Lausan x Borderless Movement event

this Saturday (June 13) at 7am PST / 10am EST / 10pm HKT

The murder of George Floyd in May at the hands of the Minneapolis police has sparked a global uprising and re-centered the movement for Black lives in the U.S. Meanwhile, the Chinese government has tightened its hold on the Hong Kong people with the imposition of national security laws, setting off a new wave of mass protests. These mobilizations against state violence, though varied in social and political contexts, are taking place amongst a surge of new movements across the world. How can we exchange notes for the continued struggle to build a global mass movement against state violence on the ground?

Join Lausan Collective and Borderless Movement for a webinar bringing together activists from Hong Kong, Seattle, and North Carolina for an organizers’ exchange this Saturday (6/13) at 7am PST / 10am EST / 10pm HKT. The event will be conducted in English. Cantonese live interpretation will be available on Zoom.

Participants will discuss unions, abolitionism, and other topics. Hongkongers will have a chance to learn about and support the current protests and struggle for Black liberation from activists, while Hong Kong organizers will share some updates on their own fight.

Speakers include:

Jerrell Davis, Black organizer and cultural worker of Decriminalize Seattle and No New Youth Jail
Maya, member of Take Action Chapel Hill in North Carolina
Tony Wong, member of Hong Kong left-wing publication The Owl
Leo Tang, organizing secretary of Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions (HKCTU)
