These days, Social Workers in Hong Kong is facing disempowerment and loss of professional autonomy, under the threat of National Security Law which the line is blurred.
We used to went on the streets to voice out. But now may be violate National Security Law.
If social workers are not heard and is not supported, then the most vulnerable people are less likely to receive unnecessary support.
I had the opportunity to share the difficulties in the summit on 1st July 2200 UTC. However, it is difficult for us to suggest ways as this might commit colluding with foreign countries that damage National Security. I am in this dilemma as well.
Maybe it’s time to show your concern to HK social worker’s situation.
If you are a social worker, or a friend of social workers, I invite you to voice us for us!
