(人權捍衛者 – 2019年8月22日)香港警方對反送中運動抗爭者的強勢作為,直接威脅到香港人的集會自由,表達自由與人身安全,香港政府必須立即停止警方濫用暴力,依法追究責任。香港政府強推“逃犯條例”(又稱送中條例)修法,引發香港民間一連串的反送中運動,從6月9日103萬人示威遊行,已於2月未見降溫趨勢。雖然香港特首林鄭月娥宣布擱置修訂“逃犯條例”,但對於反送中運動的五大訴求,特首林鄭只回應送中條例已「壽終正寢」,但堅持不用「撤回」法律用詞。許多香港民眾不滿港府拒絕妥協,持續走上街頭進行抗爭。警察以武力強勢鎮壓,驅離抗爭者,甚至有黑道人士以暴力介入,毆打傷害民眾。根據不完全的報導統計,至8月15日為止,這場抗爭事件總共造成748人被捕,年齡介於15至61歲間,2人失明,5人自殺,更有多人在街頭上到不明人士砍傷。

(人权捍卫者—2019年8月22日) 香港警方对反送中运动抗争者的强势作为,直接威胁到香港人的集會自由、表达自由与人身安全,香港政府必须立即停止警方滥用暴力、依法追究责任。 香港政府强推《逃犯条例》(又称送中条例)修法,引发香港民间一连串的反送中运动,从6月9日103万人示威游行,已逾2个月未见降温趋势。虽然香港特首林郑月娥宣布搁置修订《逃犯条例》,但对于反送中运动的五大诉求,特首林郑只回应送中条例已「寿终正寝」,但坚持不用「撤回」法律用词。许多香港民众不满港府拒绝妥协,持续走上街头进行抗争。警察以武力强势镇压、驱离抗争者、甚至有黑道人士以暴力介入、殴打伤害民众。根据不完全的报导统计,至8月15日为止,这场抗争事件总共造成748人被捕,年龄介于15至61岁间、2人失明、5人自杀、更有多人在街头上遭到不明人士砍伤。

(中国人权捍卫者――2019年7月25日)在深圳镇压佳士工人罢工一年后,中国政府继续迫害工人、劳工组织和劳工维权人士。 自2018年7月27日当局首度羁押佳士科技工厂的抗争工人及其支持者以来,政府便加紧了打压劳工运动,并对佳士罢工事件以外的人员,包含工厂工人、工运人士、研究人员、非政府组织工作者、社工,以及社群媒体编辑等人,进行羁押与骚扰。中国政府再次显示,对于劳工的社会经济权利,包括劳工争取平等工资、安全工作环境或独立工会的权利的保护缺失,当局没有诚意听取工人的诉求并改革现行政策和政府行为。 反之, 中国政府将劳工组织者和那些支持劳工的公民视为眼中钉,加以严厉惩罚或者禁止他们发声。
