Paris, the 12th august 2019
SUD AERIEN, representative union in the French air transportation, express his full solidarity and support to the airport and airline Hong Kong workers, fighting for their democratic rights.
These workers refuse a law modification that would have allowed extradition from Hong Kong to mainland China. And so could allow any person in Hong Kong to be judged by Continental China tribunals under government control.
Sud Aerien disagrees with China government requirement to prevent Cathay workers who participate in protests from flying to mainland China or passing through the country’s airspace. Cathay said that it would comply with that rule.
Sud Aerien expresses his full solidarity with Cathay Pacific workers threatened with being fired if they “support or participate in illegal protests”. From the news we get here in France, two ground workers have been sacked and one pilot has been removed.
We ask for cancellation of these repressive acts, respect for the strike right and demonstrate right.
We inform the airport and airline workers and wish a full success to the Hong Kong citizen struggle.
