Global Greens Statements

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.

Global Greens call for meaningful climate action - press release

The most progressive countries working in this COP are those that have been formed with Greens in their governments. Ministers of climate, energy and environment from Sweden, New Zealand, and Luxembourg are playing prominent roles at this COP and are Green Party members. Greens note that those governments pushing back on climate action are the same ones who increasingly reject immigration, stoke fear of the “other,” and ignore the need for social justice and eradication of poverty. “In this, Greens are also united in demanding social justice, human rights and meeting the needs of the many,” said Dorothy Nalubega, of the Global and Uganda Greens.
