    • ANROEV STATEMENT OF SOLIDARITY WITH AMRC & HONGKONG TRADE UNIONS

      ANROEV’S STATEMENT OF SOLIDARITY WITH AMRC & HONGKONG TRADE UNIONS

       

      The Asian Network for the Rights of Occupational and Environmental Victims (ANROEV), a coalition of victims’ groups, trade unions and other labour groups across Asia, all committed to the rights of Victims and for overall improvement of health and safety at the workplace is deeply anguished at the developments in Hongkong. The recent attack on the Trade Unions and organisations working towards the welfare of labour is strongly condemnable. The political changes in Hongkong in the recent past have had major implications to the labour. The workers who have been already at a receiving end with the growing marginalisation in the context of informalisation, union busting and restrictions and suffering a huge set back with the pandemic are now facing a threat of complete elimination of their rights. Unions and organisations working for their welfare and fighting for their entitlements are shutting down their operations because of the strong-arm techniques of the state machinery.

      While the entire world is witnessing shrinking civic spaces and many governments in Asia are restricting several democratic rights of their citizens and severely misusing the scare of the pandemic, the introduction of the National Security Law in Hong Kong in June 2020 has almost become a death-knell for the thriving democratic institutions in Hongkong. This has led to several Unions, including the popular Teachers Union, Free Trade Union and civil society organisations like the Asia Monitor Resources Centre (AMRC) to sadly close their operations and disband.

      With this joint statement, we stand with the Asia Monitor Resource Centre (AMRC) which has been in the forefront of enabling victims of occupational and environmental accidents and exposure to pollution and stress. Its efforts to enable their solidarity across Asia has been commendable. We also express solidarity with the Hong Kong labour movement in their struggle for more equal and democratic Hong Kong.
