Sevenoaks Lib Dems back Hong Kong Democracy
Sevenoaks Liberal Democrats supports LibDem Conference motion on Hong Kong (motion F4): -
- The Liberal Democrats to pursue in Parliament all routes to ensuring that the UK honours our legal and moral duty to the people of Hong Kong by reopening the British National (Overseas) Passport offer, extending the scheme to provide the right to abode to all holders,
- The UK government to use Britain's diplomatic and trading relationship with China to help ensure Beijing refrains from using excessive or military force to end the protests,
- The UK government to ensure that the UK and our international partners indefinitely suspend all export licenses for crowd control equipment to Hong Kong.
"The last year has seen protesters met with police violence. Students have been kettled on campuses, live ammunition has been used against a young protester, and tear gas has been used on Hong Kong citizens.
But Hong Kong is not giving up. The people of Hong Kong are not going to back down from this fight."
