Civil Human Rights Front


Civil Human Rights Front is a group of non-government organizations representing the interests of women, workers, underprivileged, community, people of different religions and ethnic minorities have come together to express the strongest opposition to the government's decision to enact laws under Article 23 of Basic Law which prohibits subversion, secession, treason and sedition against the Central Government. Instead of using Article 23 to suppress the rights and freedoms of Hong Kong people, the SAR government should strengthen the protection of Hong Kong people's human rights as set out in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Culture Rights.
