民運領袖 離散與繫獄 Imprisonment and Flight of Democracy Movement Leaders
After the June 4 massacre in 1989, the CCP immediately carried out mass reprisals and arrests. A large number of pro-democracy activists and dissidents were arrested and imprisoned or exiled overseas. Operation Yellowbird was initiated in Hong Kong. Those involved risked their lives to rescue hundreds of people from China. Campaigns were initiated to demand the release of pro-democracy activists in prison and to send Christmas cards to prisoners.
After the anti-extradition movement of 2019 and the Hong Kong National Security Law which took effect in 2020, thousands of Hong Kong people were arrested, prosecuted and imprisoned, and an increasing number of movement leaders and ordinary activists were forced into exile overseas. From sheltering refugees to becoming refugees themselves—is this the “new normal” for Hong Kong people?
On 24 June 1989, people took to the streets and assembled in Hong Kong “against reprisal” to protest the white terror after June 4.
