Wikimedia User Group Hong Kong is a proposed Wikimedian user group covering the Special Administrative Region of Hong Kong. It will replace Wikimedia Hong Kong - the former chapter in Hong Kong de-recognized in 2017. We are discussing on our plans and strategy; should we have this finalized we will notify the community, both domestic and foreign one, as soon as possible.

In our discussions it is suggested that Residents of Hong Kong can join the user group. Though non-local residents can join our group in another way instead of being our member. Also considered is the inclusion of Macau Wikimedian community in light that Wikimedia Macau would be de-recognized.


The following are tasks need to be done for us to attain status as a Wikimedia User Group:

  • Draft the statute of the user group.
  • Confirm our mission and goals.
  • Designate three editors to contact with the AffCom (and three with the Hong Kong Police Force, per local legislations)
  • Request for recognition of the WMF.

The user group's name and logo is confirmed as of November 2017. Next we will start drafting of the user group's statute by February 2018.

Proposed Agenda[edit]

  • To promote the development of the Wikimedia movement.
  • To advocate free content and free culture and, based on this, the exchange of academic knowledge and cultural inheritance.
  • To strike a balance between local Wikimedian communities using different languages (English, Chinese, Cantonese.)
  • To co-operate with chapters, user groups, thematic organisations, Wikimedian communities and even civil society organisations with similar goals under principles of equality, amity and mutual assistance.
  • To stand neutral politically, but to advocate freedom of speech for Hong Kong people (if Wikimedia movement is an affected party on such an incident.)
