Article 23 Protest Map Press Release Banner

Fast-tracked through Hong Kong’s Legislative Council (LegCo) in just 11 days, Article 23 passed by an unanimous 89-0 vote on Tuesday, March 19th. Enacted the next day, Article 23 is a draconic and oppressive security law that further allows authoritative abuses of power.

To facilitate and encourage cross-movement participation in protests against Article 23, the Coalition of Students Resisting the CCP created and shared a map of global anti-Article 23 rallies.

The (non-exhaustive) map included the following rallies:

The resource was made public and available for anyone to download, print, and disseminate in local communities.
