Following its inception in October 2000, ATKI
has worked to build up a mass movement of progressive Indonesian migrant workers based in Hong Kong. ATKI’s main objective is to assert and defend the rights and welfare of Indonesian migrant workers in Hong Kong. ATKI has organised a series of advocacy initiatives against the anti-migrant policies of the Indonesian and Hong Kong governments (e.g. press conferences, forums with the Indonesian Labour Ministry and the Immigration and Labour Department of Hong Kong SAR, campaign against a wage cut together with the Asian Migrants Coordinating Body (AMCB), held congress in Indonesia for returned migrants and their families). Workers also provide on-site welfare assistance, mobile counselling in Victoria Park (a main congregation point for Indonesian migrant workers on Sunday), education on workers’ legal entitlements, and socialisation activities (e.g. dance, art and music classes). ATKI is an active member of the Asian Migrants Coordinating Body (AMCB) and has collaborated with Solidaritas Prempuan in Jakarta to educate people on migrant issues in Hong Kong SAR.
