Protest against The Extradition Law on Sunday, 9 June

Whether locals or expatriates, we come from different backgrounds. We choose Hong Kong as our home because it is a safe international city. Here, the police interrogate suspects and courts hear trials according to law. This is what makes Hong Kong different from other cities in China.

However, the Hong Kong government’s proposed amendment to the fugitive law would allow the extradition to Mainland China, of anyone living in or passing through Hong Kong. The Mainland does not follow the same principles enshrined in the concept of the rule of law. The property of these suspects could also be confiscated by Mainland officials during an investigation.

Carrie Lam, our Chief Executive, is turning a deaf ear to vocal protests from foreign ministries, congressmen, and chambers of commerce against the proposal. She seems to be determined to sacrifice Hong Kong’s principled legal status for her own interests. When Hong Kong is no longer regarded as having a judicial system that is independent of China, our economy and society will also suffer.

Most residents of Discovery Bay would not want to see Hong Kong sink from being an international financial hub to being just another ordinary city in Mainland China. I urge you to spare a Sunday afternoon to join me in protesting against the extradition law. Let’s safeguard our home city together.
