It’s supposed to be a day of celebration, but many people in China and Hong Kong don’t feel that way at all. They’ve renamed China’s National Day, which falls on Oct. 1. They now call it China’s “Mourning Day,” because as they see it, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has only caused suffering. A number of different organizations held protests in Hong Kong against the CCP instead.

Among those speaking out were the Hong Kong Alliance, the League of Social Democrats (LSD) and Falun Gong. They staged public protests and marches in the city. The funeral of the executed Chinese street vendor was also held on Mourning Day.

Protestors highlighted the fact that within only six months after Xi Jinping took office, 140 political prisoners were detained. Throughout the day, the Falun Gong group had a strong presence. Their theme was “Disintegration of the CCP,” and “Saving China and Saving HK!” They protested against the CCP’s persecution of Falun Gong and the regime’s crimes of organ harvesting.
