Last week, Hong Kong police shot pro-democracy protester Tsang Chi-kin at point blank range with a live round, narrowly missing his heart. He is 18 years old — a student vice president at his secondary school.
This shocking shooting is the latest in a brutal police campaign to intimidate and repress an inspiring surge of ongoing protests peacefully calling for democratic reform — a police crackdown armed with ‘crowd control’ equipment supplied by U.S. companies.
U.S. companies should NOT be profiting off the back of this devastating anti-democratic clampdown. A new bi-partisan bill that would force them to stop could be voted on in the House of Representatives as soon as next week — and that’s where we can help:
Add your name to ask your representative to ban U.S. companies from supplying the tools for Hong Kong’s brutal police crackdown.
