Participants highlighted the ongoing and worsening human rights violations in China, Tibet, Uighur and Hong Kong.
Artists in London recounted ten stories of peaceful protesters and unarmed civilians who were killed at streets, inside Tiananmen and at home.
With every year that passes, achieving justice becomes even more difficult for family members of the thousands who were killed, injured or imprisoned in Beijing and across China – but it is essential for us always to stand together and keep fighting for justice, for them and for us all.
