Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to all of you who braved the sunshine and the rain to march on 1 July.
We are deeply grateful especially to those of you who came by our march team or our stall to find out more about our work, to make a donation or simply to wish us well. Your encouragement means the world to us and we march ahead stronger than ever before. We handed out all 1,300 copies of our annual report pamphlet and sold all 500 towels that we had on offer. Through your generosity, we were able to raise some HK$97,340. Deducting for expenditures, we will be donating HK$6,500 to the Civil Human Rights Front, who organised this march.
We are now accepting orders on our beautiful towel. If you are interested, please send us a message and we will provide you details with how to place your order.
We will be pressing ahead full steam with all sorts of activities to defend and advance the rule of law, democracy, human rights and freedom in Hong Kong and in particular, in relation to the issue of press freedom, which is our focus this year. We invite you to both to keep us in your attention and to join us in these meaningful endeavours.
Finally, whilst there will be dark days ahead for our beloved home, the determination and the love for Hong Kong each of you who took part in the annual 1 July march give us confidence that, ultimately, we will prevail.
