March in Hong Kong’s Torrential Rain to Commemorate June 4 Beijing Tiananmen Square Massacre

Posted by Author on May 30, 2010

DPA, via earthtimes.org, May 30, 2010-

Hong Kong – Hundreds of people took part in an annual march in Hong Kong Sunday to commemorate the 21st anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre in Beijing.

Police estimated that about 800 people took part in the march from Victoria Park to Hong Kong’s Central Government Offices although organisers claimed the turnout was much higher.

The marchers braved torrential rain as they shouted slogans and held up banners calling on China to reverse its verdict on the pro-democracy activists who died in the crackdown on June 4, 1989.

Hong Kong, a former British colony which reverted to Chinese rule in 1989 under a ‘one country two systems’ arrangement, is the only place on Chinese soil where the killings are publicly commemorated.

Tens of thousands of people are expected to join a candlelight vigil in Hong Kong’s Victoria Park on Friday evening, the city’s main annual event to mark the massacre’s anniversary.

On Saturday, police detained 13 activists and confiscated a replica statue of the Goddess of Democracy when the activists staged an unauthorised anniversary protest at a shopping mall.
