Rally urges abrogating Sino-UK pactLocal | 12 Dec 2019 10:15 am
More than a hundred people gathered outside the British Consulate General in Admiralty last night, urging the UK government to support the pro-democracy protest movement, RTHK reports.
They called on the UK to terminate the Sino-British Joint Declaration, saying this would mean Beijing no longer had sovereignty over the city.
They said Britain has a responsibility to do something for the SAR under the treaty - especially with people's demands falling on deaf ears.
They also want Hong Kong to rejoin the Commonwealth.
The rally organizer said they handed a petition to a representative of the consulate - just hours ahead of the general election in UK.
