(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。
