Joey Siu

Joey Siu is a Hongkongese-American activist, policy advisor at Hong Kong Watch, and advisor to the Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China (IPAC).

She played a key part in the Hong Kong protests of 2019, before being forced to flee her city amid fears she might be taken hostage as a diplomatic tool due to her American citizenship.

Siu has since become a fierce advocate for human rights in Hong Kong, East Turkestan, Tibet and other Chinese regions. She writes on U.S.-China relations as well as Hong Kong politics.

Siu has testified twice before the U.S. Congress, spoken in the U.K. Parliament and at the United Nations in Geneva, as well as briefing the European Union’s Delegation at the U.N.

She was arrested in Athens in October 2021 for protesting the Beijing 2022 Olympics.
