I flew to Hong Kong to release @hrw ’s new World Report. This year it describes how the Chinese government is undermining the international human rights system. But the authorities just blocked my entrance to Hong Kong, illustrating the worsening problem.

Every American has the right to voice their support for democracy and human rights for Hong Kong. Full stop.
