2 October is the UN International Day of Non Violence

"Non-violence is the greatest force at the disposal of mankind. It is mightier than the mightiest weapon of destruction devised by the ingenuity of man" : Mahatma Gandhi


The second of October is the birthday of Mahatma Gandhi who was born 152 years ago in 1869, and also the UN International Day of Non Violence. Gandhi is revered around the world as a champion of non-violence for his decades long non-violent struggle against the British Empire.



"Nonviolent action is a technique by which people who reject passivity and submission, and who see struggle as essential, can wage their conflict without violence. Nonviolent action is not an attempt to avoid or ignore conflict. It is one response to the problem of how to act effectively in politics, especially how to wield powers effectively" : Professor Gene Sharp



The people of Hong Kong (HK) for decades have been seeking universal and equal suffrage which is guaranteed inside international UN treaties 1) the Joint Declaration, 2) ICCPR and 3) the UN Declaration of Human Rights.


WTPOHK has always, and will always, support only peaceful non-violent protests.


International treaties and the rule OF law ensures in Hong Kong (HK) that we have democracy and human rights including our civil liberties of speech, assembly, Press, etc. Perhaps, as has happened in HK) in 2020, the government and their masters the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) decide otherwise - it is still our human right to continue to peacefully and non violently demand human rights for HK peoples. Gai yau (add oil)!


“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” : Dr Martin Luther King


“I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant” : Dr Martin Luther King


'Satyagraha' is perhaps the most enduring legacy of Mahatma Gandhi.
