(Above the 2019 Tiananmen Square Vigil in Hong Kong)
Three individuals in Hong Kong have been convicted for their efforts to remember and commemorate those who died in the Tiananmen Square massacre.
The famous Tank-man who stopped the troops from crushing the innocents protesting the CCP in Beijing is one of the most iconic symbols of a man standing for justice and stopping an army. This was taken before the troops entered Tiananmen Square in 1989 under the darkness of night and killed an unknown number of innocent protesters. The whole world was watching as the Square was emptied by force after much hope that the CCP would change its ways.
The Tiananmen Square massacre was remembered annually in Hong Kong up until 2019. In 2019, the South China Morning Post reported on the vigil as follows:
Hongkongers gathered in record numbers, organisers said on Tuesday night, to mourn those who lost their lives in a bloody crackdown on democracy protesters in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square in 1989.
The Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China said well over 180,000 had attended the annual candlelight vigil, contrasting with last year’s 115,000. Police put the figure at 37,000 on Tuesday night and 17,000 in 2018.
Public opposition to the government’s controversial extradition bill was expected to boost the turnout on the 30th anniversary of the tragedy which left hundreds, possibly more than 1,000, dead.
China used COVID to destroy individual rights in Hong Kong and implemented new laws to prevent the vigil from occurring. Now the City-Country is using corrupt courts to punish those behind the vigils.
Three Hong Kong activists from a now-defunct group that organized annual vigils commemorating China’s 1989 crackdown on pro-democracy protesters were convicted on Saturday for failing to provide authorities with information on the group in accordance with a national security law.
Chow Hang-tung, Tang Ngok-kwan and Tsui Hon-kwong were arrested in 2021 during a crackdown on the city’s pro-democracy movement following massive protests more than three years ago. They were leaders of the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China before it disbanded under the shadow of the Beijing-imposed law.
The alliance was best known for organizing candlelight vigils in Hong Kong on the anniversary of the Chinese military’s crushing of the 1989 Tiananmen Square pro-democracy protests. Critics say its shutdown has shown freedoms that were promised when Hong Kong returned to China in 1997 are eroding.
This is how a country is taken over by communists and the US is not far behind under the corrupt Biden regime.
