‘Hong Kong needs a safe port’: Activists urged action after Germany heard a petition about a security law | Instant News

Activists who petitioned Berlin to impose sanctions on China over Hong Kong’s political crackdown have called for “concrete action” after the German parliament heard their demands on Monday.

Human rights activists Glacier Kwong and David Missal led a petition last September asking Germany to sanction Hong Kong officials over a national security law passed by Beijing last June. The online petition reaches the 50,000 signatures required for a parliamentary hearing within one month.

At Monday’s hearing, Kwong urged Germany to “have a real and strong policy in China” and “implement targeted sanctions against individuals in Hong Kong and China … to hold China accountable and respect Germany’s commitment to democratic values.”
