HONG KONG will be having their ONE BILLION RISING FOR JUSTICE earlier than most. It will be taking place this Sunday, February 9th. Erwiana is a domestic worker from Indonesia working in Hong Kong who was badly and severely tortured and beaten by her employer. She is now hospitalised and still in critical condition. Her case has enraged Asia. Hong Kong has one of the largest population of domestic workers from Southeast and South Asia. One Billion Rising Hong Kong is taking place this Sunday because Sunday is the only day off of the domestic workers. It is being led largely by migrant and domestic worker groups from the Philippines and Indonesia.
