On June 4, the people of Hong Kong did what the people in China can’t — thousands gathered in Victoria Park to remember the Tiananmen Square massacre that shocked the world 27 years ago.
The organizer of this rally, alliance chairman Albert Ho Chun-yan, told Vision Times it was “very rare that there are still over 120,000 people in attendance at Victoria Park after 27 years.”
“In the history of mankind, there have never been so many people for so many years gathered at the same venue to protest… We are proud of Hong Kong,” he went on to say.
Ho noted that nowhere else in the world was there such a long-standing, large-scale protest, calling the vigil “a record in human history.”
“I believe Hongkongers will continue to be determined until we reach our goal,” he added.
In the featured video, Albert Ho Chun-yan says: “We want to vindicate the 1989 patriotic movement. We condemn the June 4 massacre, and call for those responsible to be brought to justice.
“The long-term goal of course is to seek and end the one-party dictatorship in China, and we want democracy to be put in place in China.”
