The National Security Law jeopardises creative freedom

The National Security Law in Hong Kong will put arts and cultural workers at risk of violating prohibitions and create a climate of fear and self-censorship that harms artistic expression, free speech, cultural exchange and even personal security. Being a humble part in the creative industries and photography scene in Hong Kong we would like to take this opportunity to voice our concerns.⁣

Photography has a long history of being an important medium as a truthful record of our own world. A bookstore on the other hand is a platform where the readers can meet all views and opinions. Without the above mentioned freedoms secured The Salt Yard can hardly function in the way we set out to do.⁣

Even though the coronavirus pandemic has put us into hiatus and global mailing services is still limited, we have decided to reopen our store as a way to declare where we stand.⁣
