約三十名FCC成員和新聞從業員手持「堅決保衛新聞自由,不容暴力對待記者。」等譴責暴力的標語默站抗議,並聲援在近日衝突中,採訪期間受傷的記者。FCC表示,支持市民和平示威的權利,但記者同時亦有權在不受威嚇和暴力的情況下採訪,呼籲獨立調查所有記者採訪時遇襲或受威嚇之事件。記者會亦要求警方盡快將涉案的人緝拿歸案。

FCC聲明全文

​FCC statement condemning violence in Hong Kong including against journalists
 
The Foreign Correspondents’ Club of Hong Kong strongly condemns the latest violence that injured dozens of people, including journalists, and in particular the sickening scenes of mob violence at Yuen Long.
 
The club expresses solidarity with the journalists who were injured. It calls on the Hong Kong police and authorities to urgently find and bring to justice those who carried out the unprecedented mob attack.

Members will hold a silent protest outside the FCC on Tuesday, July 23, at 9:30 a.m. under the banner “Yes to press freedom, no to violence against journalists.”

Also, FCC board members will be meeting with the Hong Kong Journalists Association to discuss future steps to defend media freedom in Hong Kong.
 
The FCC expresses its unequivocal support for the right under Hong Kong law of the Hong Kong people to hold peaceful protests and for the right of journalists to cover such demonstrations free of intimidation or violence by authorities.
 
The FCC renews its call for an independent investigation of all forms of violence and intimidation directed at journalists by police since the start of the protests in June and urges that such investigations be thorough and transparent.
