The Conference was attended by delegates from Hong Kong, India, Japan, Myanmar, Nepal, Philippines, Southern Mongolia, Taiwan, Thailand, Tibet and Vietnam. After two days of constructive discussions, delegates have come to a consensus that, people and nations of Asia must play an active role in promoting and supporting true voice of human rights and freedom across the region.

Issues and concerns presented are in conformity that the universal human rights and freedom are at stake across Asia. The delegates strongly condemn the destructive policies and oppressive regimes.

The delegates noted that this year is the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and 25th anniversary of Vienna Conference on Human Rights, emphasizing the link between freedom, human rights and democracy. The delegates also recognize the commitment to protect and safeguard environment and ensuring sustainable development for all. 

The delegates call upon the government of China to take immediate action to ensure freedom, human rights and self-determination for the people of Tibet, Southern Mongolia, Hong Kong and stop their aggressive policies that are expansionist and interfering in nature on neighboring countries like Taiwan, Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines, Japan, Myanmar, Nepal and India.

The delegates also recognize that inspirations drawn from the Sunflower Movement, Umbrella Revolution and other resistance movements around the world have motivated a new generation of activism.

The delegates call upon the governments around the world to proactively uphold universal principles of human rights, freedom, and democracy policies and highlight the need to strengthen ties within the regional groups.
