Local pro-democracy political party Demosisto announced it was disbanding on Tuesday.

In a Facebook statement, Demosisto said the party had learned of the resignations of secretary-general Joshua Wong as well as standing committee members Nathan Law, Jeffrey Ngo and Agnes Chow this morning. It said the party respected everyone’s personal choices and was grateful for their contributions to Hong Kong’s democracy movement throughout the years. Demosisto also revoked their memberships according to their wishes.

“It will be difficult for the party to continue to operate … Everyone should continue to fight in a more flexible manner. We now announce that we will dissolve and stop all meetings and actions from now on,” the statement read. 

The members of Demosisto will continue to look for possibilities to break away from totalitarian oppression, it added.
