Would “communist Hong Kong” crackdown on private Tiananmen square vigils?

Published

on

Activists are demanding justice for those who were killed in the 1989 massacre.

Vigils around the world will be held on Saturday 4th of June in response to the cancellation of Hong Kong’s vigil.

Annual vigils in Hong Kong have been running for more than 30 years.

They were banned in 2020 due to Hong Kong’s national security law and Covid-19.

Stijn Deklerck from Amnesty International says it has been impossible to commemorate what happened in Tiananmen square.

“We’ve really seen a very fast cracking down since the national security law came into effect”

Hong Kong in the past have held the biggest memorials, remembering those who were killed in the Tiananmen square massacre.

Instead, cities like San Francisco, Seoul, Taipei, Sydney, Paris, London and Amsterdam will hold their own vigils.

Amnesty International says “the simple act of lighting a candle for Tiananmen has become a crime in Hong Kong, just as it has been in mainland China for more than 30 years.”

“But history cannot be erased, and activism will never be silenced.”

The massacre left hundreds, even thousands of students and workers dead, for calling on the government to make economic and political changes.

Activists are urging Chinese authorities to come clean to bring justice to those who lost their lives.
