Hong Kong Democracy Activist Nathan Law to Join Sen. Rick Scott as Guest at State of the Union

February 3, 2020

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott announced Nathan Law as his guest to Tuesday’s State of the Union Address. Nathan Law is the founding Chair of Demosisto¯, a youth activist group in Hong Kong that promotes freedom and democracy. Nathan was forcefully unseated as a Hong Kong lawmaker under suppression from Communist China, and is currently a Yale graduate student.


Senator Rick Scott said, “I am honored to have Nathan as my guest at the State of the Union. Nathan is an inspiration in the fight for freedom and democracy, and he has sent a powerful message to Communist China that the people of Hong Kong will not back down or be silenced. The United States will always stand with fighters like Nathan to rise up against injustice and fight for freedom. We cannot let Communist China and General Secretary Xi continue to silence the people of Hong Kong, and the world must stand together to present a unified front against Communist China’s aggression.”
