The United Kingdom: China Breaches the Sino-British Joint Declaration. Resume British Sovereignty over Hong Kong 致英國：中國違反《中英聯合聲明》香港回歸英國

As a colony of the United Kingdom since 1842, Hong Kong was listed as a non-self-governing territory under Chapter XI of the Charter of the United Nations that recognizes “the interests of the inhabitants of these territories are paramount”. However, Hong Kong was removed from the List in 1972 and later in 1997, the sovereignty of Hong Kong was hanged over from the United Kingdom to China through the 1984 Sino-British Joint Declaration without Hongkongers' consent, and yet we did not actively reject this move. Our language, cultural, political, economic, social, and educational advancements are all under threat from China. China outrageously breaches the Sino-British Joint Declaration. We urge the United Kingdom to declare the 1984 Sino-British Declaration void and resume British sovereignty over Hong Kong.
China has no intention to uphold its end of the bargain. Many aspects of lives are undergoing rapidly deteriorating. Particularly finance, education, judiciary, immigration, policing, healthcare, human rights, freedom of speech and press are all in full retreat. We lost our border and immigration control soon after the unjust transfer of sovereignty of Hong Kong from the United Kingdom to China. The local and official languages in Hong Kong are English and Cantonese. However, children are misinformed in schools that Mandarin is the standard language but not Cantonese. Our languages and unique culture are under threat. Brainwashing Chinese-patriotic elements are penetrated across different subjects in education. China released a white paper on Hong Kong in 2014 stating that it has ‘complete jurisdiction’ over Hong Kong and is the source of Hong Kong’s autonomy. This seriously undermines the spirit of the Joint Declaration. A bookseller was involuntary removed from Hong Kong to China without any due process under Hong Kong SAR law in 2015. This constitutes an egregious breach of the Joint Declaration and undermines the principle which assures Hong Kong residents of the protection of the legal system in Hong Kong. These were just the tip of the iceberg. Chinese government's will and influence are the very obvious causes of these negative changes. China outrageously breaches the 1984 Sino-British Joint Declaration. In order to uphold British honour and integrity, we urge the United Kingdom to declare the 1984 Sino-British Joint Declaration void and resume British sovereignty over Hong Kong. Only with the UK can the Pearl of the Orient shine again.
Hongkongers have the right to determine Hong Kong’s political system and future. Until our collective voice expressed in a fairly conducted referendum on Hong Kong becoming a British overseas territory, the United Kingdom has the duty to govern. We need support from the World especially the United Kingdom!
Sign it. Share it. Support Hongkongers' genuine choice to reunite Hong Kong with the United Kingdom. Save Hong Kong. Fight for freedom, democracy and human rights!
