WOMEN'S RIGHTS ARE HUMAN RIGHTS

with Saruul Tovuusuren

Saruul Tovuusuren is a Lawyer working on human rights and environmental protection and Head of the Mongolian Green Party Women's Group, and APGF Women's Network Co-Convenor.

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.

Green Party Korea Position Paper - COVID 19

Ecological destruction and factory farming: The development of the coronavirus can be attributed to climate change, indiscriminate exploitation of wild animals, and loss of habitats due to aggressive construction and development, which caused the habitats of humans to coincide with that of bats. The shift to a single species to increase production has formed a condition that is vulnerable to the spread of infectious diseases. Together, ecological destruction and close breeding in factory farms is building an environment that is exposed to the periodic outbreak of zoonotic diseases.
