Free Tibet activists informed Hikvision employees at their headquarters about the firm's involvement in human rights abuses, vowing to "keep going back" until Hikvision responds.
This tactic, along with continued strong UK scrutiny, may wear down morale at Hikvision's UK branch, posing a longer-term threat. At Hikvision and other surveillance manufacturers, internal discussion of human rights is typically avoided.
Hikvision faces continued strong criticism in the UK, with several Parliament Members calling for a ban the day after Free Tibet's action. In April, other activists protested a Hikvision roadshow.
