「六四」重演 鎮壓未完結 June 4 Repeats; The Oppression Is Not Over
In 1989, the June 4 massacre shocked the world. The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) opened fire on unarmed citizens and students, causing many deaths and casualties.
In 2019, “June 4 2.0” occurred in Hong Kong. Indiscriminate violence by the police, tear gas, rubber bullets and bean bag rounds left indelible scars on the bodies and souls of many people in Hong Kong.
In 2020, the June 4 candlelight vigil was banned for the first time in 30 years, marking the end of “one country, two systems”.
In 2021, people who insisted on holding the candlelight vigil in 2020 were convicted and received sentences of 4 to 10 months in prison, the first time ever anyone in Hong Kong was sent to prison for marking June 4. Hong Kong people have been deprived of their right to peacefully assemble and mourn the June 4 massacre.
What does the future hold? Will Hong Kong become like China where, as human rights activist Ran Yunfei says, “Daily disasters are a continuation of the disaster on 4 June 1989”?
On 5 June 1989 in Beijing, a couple hid from the tanks under a bridge.
Late at night on 3 June 1989, the tanks forcibly entered Tiananmen Square.
Beijing citizens showed the shell casings of the shots fired by the army on June 4 to journalists, and hoped the truth will not be buried.
The Police dispatched Water Cannon Vehicle during the HK Anti-Extradition Movement in 2019.
On 31 August 2019, police used indiscriminate violence against citizens in the “31 August” incident in the Prince Edward MTR station.
