On May 27, 2022, the Hong Kong Labour Rights Monitor joined the Hong Kongers’ Labour Fair and held an exhibition about the Hong Kong labour rights movement.
Mung Siu-Tat, executive director of the Hong Kong Labour Rights Monitor, delivered a presentation recounting the history of the Hong Kong labour rights movement from the 1920s to the present, as well as the role of workers and independent trade unions in Hong Kong’s democracy movement.
Over 60 trade unions have been liquidated in Hong Kong since the enactment of the National Security Law. However, grassroots labour organisations continue to take action and fight for their basic rights. Through our awareness-raising campaign, research, and advocacy activities, HKLRM will continue to spread their voices from Hong Kong to the rest of the world.
