A Public Joint Statement from Hong Kong Citizens. 

Hundreds of thousands of people in Hong Kong took to the street in recent days to protest amid the controversial extradition bill. In the latest rounds of the protest, the Hong Kong Police Force (HKPF) has been rapidly using excessive level of violence and firearms against citizens who are participating in a peaceful assembly. Confirmed firearms in use including batons, pepper spray and rubber bullets. However, the level of extreme violence is believed to be violating the “UN Principles on the Use of Force and Firearms by Law Enforcement Officials.” Several unarmed participants have been reportedly beaten or shot.

Now, we urge the Police Commissioner to deliver an official apology for its inappropriate actions against citizens immediately. We also demand The Independent Police Complaints Council (IPCC) to form an independent committee to investigate into this tragic matter, especially on the excessive use of force. And we would also like to ask the United Nations to publicly condemn the HKPF for allegedly violating UN Principles, in the sake of basic lawful rights.
