As Hongkongers, we find ourselves at a pivotal moment in history where Hong Kong’s values and freedom of speech are under unprecedented pressure.
The Hong Kong government has applied for a court injunction to prohibit the dissemination of the song “Glory to Hong Kong.” This song holds special significance in the hearts of Hongkongers, symbolizing our desire for freedom, democracy, and unwavering resilience. To amplify our message to the world, we urge Hongkongers around the globe to request local radio stations in their respective regions to play “Glory to Hong Kong.”
Our aim is for the world to hear our voice and for more people to understand the challenges currently faced by Hong Kong and our pursuit of freedom. Moreover, this movement can unite the strength of all Hongkongers, demonstrating our solidarity and determination. By requesting local radio stations to broadcast “Glory to Hong Kong,” we can display the unity of Hongkongers worldwide, advocating for Hong Kong’s freedom and values.
We hope everyone will actively contact radio stations in their respective countries and request the hosts to play “Glory to Hong Kong” over the week starting from June 12th. Please refer to the list below for details on how to request songs on various radio programs. If you have contact methods for other programs, please feel free to suggest in the comments.
