In the summer of 2019, the Lady Liberty Hong Kong project was created and crowdfunded online. Since 31st August, Lady Liberty HK has appeared at a succession of democratic rallies and has since become one of the landmark symbols of the movement. The statue serves as a beacon of hope to the freedom fighters with an indomitable spirit. In contrast to the conventional impression of a Goddess figure, Lady Liberty HK presents herself as a formidable, courageous warrior. As a gesture to reiterate the resilience and determination of Hong Kong citizens in demanding freedom and democracy in the city, with the assistance of a group of volunteers, the creative team behind the statue has successfully installed the Lady Liberty of Hong Kong at the top of the Lion Rock in a 4-hour mission on Saturday at midnight.
As the democractic movement stretches into the daily lives of every Hongkonger, Lady Liberty HK will be transformed into a ubiquitous symbol that reminds people of our determination to for a democractic society.
On 20th November, 2019, the Lady Liberty HK team launched the charity sales campaign “Dawn is Coming, Keep Fighting ”. All income from the sales will be used to stimulate the growth of a sustainable economical eco-system for all democractic supporters. The ecosystem being conceived will provide employment opportunities for under-worked protestors, offer mindful rehabilitation activities to relieve emotional stress and subsidize promotional activities spendings. Your support is vital to the livelihood of Hong Kong freedom fighters.
