公民会 Assembly of Citizens
How we started
On 7th February, Dr. Li Wenliang, the “whistleblower” of COVID-19 that originated from Wuhan, China, passed away due to the virus infection. To protest the mismanagement of the pandemic and curtailing of freedom of speech by the Chinese government, a group of Chinese international students organized massive demonstrations in Toronto and Montreal. It was the beginning of Assembly of Citizens’s formation.
Over the next 2 years, Assembly of Citizens participated in and organized several public protests against the tyranny of the Chinese regime and support the democratic movement in Hong Kong and Taiwan.
On May 2022, Assembly of Citizens finally registered in Canada as an NGO. We also expanded our branch in the US, Europe, and other places across the world. In June 2022, participated the 33rd-anniversary event of the Tiananmen Square Protest as one of the organizers.
The number of our members are steadily growing since the formation of Assembly of Citizens. Meanwhile, we also have built cordial relations with multiple other political activists and media groups. Several members have received interviews from the media.
We, the Assembly of Citizens, as an oppositional organization of Chinese youths, firmly believe that the current Chinese regime is our enemy.
We, the Assembly of Citizens, believe that there is nobody can safely enjoy the freedom and safety that they ought to have until the Chinese regime and all its puppets are overthrown.
We, the Assembly of Citizens, hold the opinion that ethnic minorities, human rights, and personal freedom are being oppressed, deprived, and trampled in China while the unrestricted power of the state constantly invades everywhere in civil society. Life for many ordinary citizens in China has become a vicious cycle of mutual harming of ordinary citizens due to stricter oppression from the regime.
We, the Assembly of Citizens, also realize that there is no panacea for all the problems above. Instead, we believe that our revolution will not succeed without unremitting efforts. The revolution will persevere, and she will succeed.
