Eu China Comprehensive Agreement

Eu-China deal. Citizens must know, MEPs must act

The Eu China Comprehensive Agreement was not the right context to talk about human rights and democracy - we were told by supporters of the deal. Though, just a couple of days after the deal was reached, more than 50 activists, journalists, scholars, scientists, lawyers fighting for preserving Hong Kong from China dictatorship - among them the young democratic leader Joshua Wong - were jailed. The suspect is that if Europe agreed with China not to talk about Human Rights during trading talks, China might have understood it could keep going on with the “final solution” to freedom aspirations in the former British colony.
