Press Release 2 June 2021
‘June 4th Museum’ Closing Notice
Yesterday (1 June), Food and Environmental Hygiene Department officers inspected the ‘June 4th Museum’ and alleged that the Alliance did not have a valid Places of Public Entertainment Licence and was suspected to have violated the ‘Places of Public Entertainment Ordinance’.
The management committee of the ‘June 4th Museum’ decided after deliberation that further legal advice is needed on the incident, and in order to protect the safety of staff and visitors, the Museum is temporarily closed until further notice.
The ‘June 4th Museum’ just reopened at 2 pm on 30 May. During the three days it had opened, more than 550 people visited. The Alliance thanks the people of Hong Kong for their support and not forgetting ‘June 4th’.
In the face of the current difficult political situation, the Alliance still believes that Hong Kong people’s feelings of not forgetting ‘June 4th’ will not disappear. We also ask Hong Kong people to mourn ‘June 4th’ with wisdom, flexibility and perseverance, under legal, safe, peaceful and rational circumstances, in their own way, at the right time and place. Let the truth prevail!
