17 Regional General Council - DEMOCRATIC FUTURE OF HONG KONG

Jul 2019

In this resolution, the ITUC-AP takes an official stance regarding the democratic future of Hong Kong. ITUC-AP endorses the Hong Kong people’s demand that the Hong Kong Government withdraw the Fugitives Offenders Ordinance Amendment Bill and restore the people’s confidence in the “one country, two systems” arrangement.

The ITUC-AP further endorses the Hong Kong people’s call to scrap the bill unless the Chinese judicial system proves to be independent of the Chinese Government. It also calls upon the Chinese Government to honour its pledge under the Hong Kong Basic Law and restart Constitutional Reform in Hong Kong and also supports the demand of the Hong Kong Confederation of Trade Unions and their allies in the democracy movement for the implementation of universal suffrage.
