Hong Kong June 4 candlelight vigil

更新日期:6月 19

As China tightens its control over Hong Kong with national security law, activists in the city defied a police ban and broke through barricades on Thursday evening to mark the 31st anniversary of the crackdown on pro-democracy movement in Beijing's Tiananmen Square.

Police cited the need for social distancing during the coronavirus outbreak and barricaded sprawling Victoria Park to prevent people from gathering there. Beijing is taking a tougher stance following months of anti-government protests last year, in what activists see as an accelerating erosion of the city's rights and liberties.
