Taipei, Sept. 13 (CNA) Hong Kong singer-activist Denise Ho (何韻詩) and Hong Kong's pro-democracy movement dominated the 2019 Oslo Freedom Forum-Taiwan on Friday, turning the gathering of international human rights advocates into a support session for Hong Kong people's fight for democracy.
The Oslo Freedom Forum (OFF) is a flagship event organized by the New York-based Human Rights Foundation (HRF) that takes place each year in Norway to promote human rights and democracy globally and support struggles against authoritarianism.
The gathering in Taipei was a satellite event of the OFF under the theme "unite."
