The Green Parties of Korea, Taiwan and Japan support the Hong Kong protests.

On the 9th of June, more than a million people came out to the streets in Hong Kong to oppose the Hong Kong government’s proposal to amend the extradition law. Many have expressed concerns that these amendments will be a direct threat to Hong Kong’s democracy and rule of law. The umbrellas in the crowd remind us of scenes from the Umbrella Movement 5 years ago. The protests have become bigger in scale. It is recorded as the largest demonstration ever held in Hong Kong since the handover in 1997. On the 12th of June, peaceful protesters fighting for freedom were met with a violent charge of batons by the government. 79 citizens were injured, 2 of whom are in serious condition. The Hong Kong government has already labelled the protest as a ‘riot’. China is accusing foreign powers of orchestrating the protests.

Green Party Korea 2020 Election results

South Korea held its general elections during the past month. It was the first election after the voting age was lowered to 18 and an improvement was made to the electoral system, increasing proportional representation - both of which were achievements we had fought hard for. It was also the first time our party carried out the She Will Run project, officially launched a year before election day. Hearing of exciting results from many of you around the world and with attention to the climate crisis on the rise (although we still stand far from where we should be), our hopes for this election was also growing.
