Please join us as we stand up against the Chinese Communist Party together.

On December 10th, 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights — a bold and empowering Declaration, proclaiming the inalienable rights for each and every human being.

Yet, this year, in 2019, we continue to see the ongoing human rights violations that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) commits not only to their own people — but also to our friends in Tibet, East Turkistan, Hong Kong, Southern Mongolia and Kazakhstan. We continue to see the CCP’s increasing pressure on democratic Taiwan. We stand in solidarity with all those under the boot of CCP’s authoritarianism.

Join us on December 8th 12pm at the United Nations where together, we call on the international community to recognize equality, justice and human rights for all. We will take to the streets of NYC and march to Union Square Plaza, while we urge fellow New Yorkers to uphold and protect the rights proclaimed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

We welcome and encourage attendees to bring flags, posters and banners! #ResistTheCCP

Cohosts: Activists from Hong Kong, RTYC NYNJ, East Turkistan National Awakening Movement, Students for Free Tibet, Chushi Gangdruk, Keep Taiwan Free, Taiwanese American Association of New York, US Tibet Committee, Free Southern Mongolia, FreeKazakhs.
