Tiananmen Massacre Memorial Museum on the Internet
Since its establishment in Hong Kong in 2012, the June 4th Museum has again and again suffered pressure and harassment. In Hong Kong, where freedom is deteriorating, the preservation of precious historical archives and relics faces many difficulties. The museum is having a crowdfunding campaign to build a permanent museum of human rights memory for the 1989 democratic movement to be available on the Internet. The goal is to raise HK$1.5 million by August 2. Let’s all get together to make this a reality to avoid history being rewritten some time later. For more information please visit the crowdfunding page.

Canada Supporting Hong Kong Apple Daily
We are a group of Canadian HongKongers closely monitoring the ongoing battle fought everyday on the streets of Hong Kong. We are deeply concerned about the future of the city from whence we came, a city whose freedom is gradually chipping away. We are responding in an emergency campaign to appeal to Hongkongers in Canada to subscribe to Apple Daily. At the same time we also hope to raise CAD$24,000 through crowdfunding to publish a frontpage advertisement with our heartfelt wishes, and to contribute to the newspaper’s finances. Through this advertising campaign, we wish to convey the message that freedom loving Canadians are standing alongside with the people of Hong Kong in defense of their freedom of press and free speech.

Liu Xiaobo Empty Chair Financial Report
The Liu Xiaobo Empty Chair Memorial is a joint effort by TADC, Amnesty International and PEN Canada. Since the announcement in May 2018, more than C$40,000 has been raised by crowd funding to finance the project. Liu was sentenced 13 years imprisonment in 2009 and died in prison in 2017. The Chinese governmnet refused him to travel to Oslo to receive the 2010 Nobel Peace Price. His absence was marked by an empty chair on stage during the award ceremony. The bronze replica of the empty chair becomes the Liu Xiaobo Memorial. The memorial is installed in the front yard of Amnesty International Canada’s headquarter in Ottawa. It is not only open to the public at all times, visitors are encouraged to sit in the Chair to reflect Liu’s courage and determination to fight for freedom, democracy and human rights with the ultimate price of his life.
Thank you everyone’s generous support to make the Liu Xiaobo Empty Chair statue possible. As seen in the attached financial report, we are still short by $9220. This includes budget amount of $6000 to maintain the statue in the next 10 years. We continue to pledge for financial support to allow us to pay off balances owing to friendly organizations sooner.
