Labour Rights Talk for Hongkongers and Exhibition

We took the workers rights discussion and exhibition to Manchester and Birmingham in September. We want to do similar events across southern England and Wales. If you would like to co-host an event in your area, please email us at [email protected] !

That’s a wrap for this month. We’d appreciate it if you could share this email with your network. It would help us reach a wider audience and increase awareness of #HKLabourRights. Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for more updates.
