「六四紀念館」於2019年4月26日（《人民日報》發表題為《必須旗幟鮮明地反對動亂》社論30周年）重新開館，當時主題為「記憶。公義。希望」，紀念在八九民運中犧牲的烈士和他們的奉獻精神。 🔗 四．二六社論
。「六四紀念館」於2012年和2013年分別在深水埗和香港城市大學設立臨時紀念館，反應熱烈，遂於2014年在尖沙咀富好中心購買單位，設立永久「六四紀念館」，但不斷遭受大廈業主立案法團的訴訟纏擾，以及管理處經常滋擾參觀者，加上紀念館受面積所限，未能作更大規模的展覽宣傳，也沒有足夠地方舉辦講座等活動，嚴重限制紀念館的發展和教育功能。2016年，經支聯會常委會討論及在會員大會上決議通過出售物業，另覓更大面積地方重建紀念館。🔗2012 | 2013 | 2014-16 360º 走入尖沙咀六四紀念館
。2017年及2018年，支聯會一方面在維園年宵攤位及友好團體提供的場地舉行「六四紀念館」專題展，一方面籌款擴館及尋找新館址。幾經努力，2019年初購得位於旺角一單位，重置「六四紀念館」。 🔗 2017-18

。2020 年是「六四」屠殺31 周年，5月20 日展開新主題展覽《走在抗極權最前線 ——從「八九六四」到「反送中」》。31 年前，香港人全情投入聲援北京民主運動，沒想到在2019年夏天開始，香港由反對修訂《逃犯條例》至今，要為自己展開一場對抗政治暴力、守護自由之戰。兩場運動面對同一專制極權，所遭遇的鎮壓和濫暴相近，不少人把「六四」和「反送中」比較，說「反送中」是「六四2.0」。

As the Museum was preparing for the opening, the iron gate on the front door was found opened on April 7 2019and the lock was gone. Ten wall sockets, the main fuse and the fuse box had also been vandalised with salt water. Recently, some people claiming to represent fellow property owners in the building where the Museum is housed protested outside, causing nuisance to building tenants and nearby residents. These are obviously malicious acts meant to prevent the Museum from reopening.
Hong Kong Alliance foresees more sabotage, whether overt or covert, in the future. We will strive to continue our work. No matter how repressive the authoritarian regime or how difficult the hurdles ahead, we will not back down and will fight to the end.
The June 4th Museum reopen on April 26 2019, the 30th Anniversary of the People's Daily editorial that irrevocably labelled the 1989 pro-democracy demonstrations “turmoil”. Its theme is 'Memory. Justice. Hope.' to commemorate the martyrs who gave their lives in 1989 and honor their dedication.
History of the June 4th Museum
1. Temporary June 4th Museums were set up in Sham Shui Po and City University of Hong Kong in 2012 and 2013 respectively. In 2014, a space at Foo Hoo Centre, Tsim Sha Tsui was purchased, and the permanent June 4th Museum opened. However, the building owners' corporation brought litigation against the Museum and the management office often harassed Museum visitors. The Museum also had limited space for larger exhibitions and other activities such as lectures, which seriously restricted the development and educational initiatives of the Museum. In 2016, the Standing Committee of Hong Kong Alliance discussed and approved selling the property and looking for a bigger space to reopen the Museum.
2. In 2017 and 2018, Hong Kong Alliance organised special exhibitions of the June 4th Museum at the Victoria Park Lunar New Year Fair and venues provided by like-minded groups. It also fundraised for museum expansion and searched for a new site. Finally a space was purchased in Mong Kok in early 2019 to reopen the June 4th Museum.
3. In keeping with the purpose of similar memorials around the world, only by telling the truth, protecting memory, learning from history, distinguishing between right and wrong, and upholding justice can such a criminal tragedy be prevented from happening again.
4. The goals of the June 4th Museum are to never forget June 4, to invoke our conscience, to pass on the torch, to explain to the public the history of the 1989 democracy movement, and to understand its causes and consequences. It is hoped that both the government and the public can learn from history and together discuss the significance of building a fair and just society.
‘At the forefront of anti-totalitarianism: From June 4, 1989 to the anti-extradition movement’
Starting date: 20 May, 2020
(20 May 2020) The June 4 Museum was closed during the height of the COVID-19 epidemic to prepare for the new exhibition, ‘At the forefront of anti-totalitarianism: From June 4, 1989 to the anti-extradition movement’. The Museum officially opened on May 20 with a new design.
Thirty-one years ago on May 20, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) declared martial law, and the army entered the city to suppress the 1989 democracy movement. Typhoon No. 8 was hoisted in Hong Kong, yet more than 40,000 people bravely took to the streets to support Beijing students.
In 1989, Hong Kong people wholeheartedly supported the democracy movement in Beijing. After the 1997 handover, CCP totalitarianism extended to Hong Kong. Hong Kong people have repeatedly pushed back: in the march against Article 23 ‘national security’ legislation in 2003, the campaign against the introduction of a new ‘national education’ subject in schools in 2012, the Umbrella Movement in 2014, and... In the summer of 2019, the fight for freedom from tyranny began with opposition to plans to amend local laws to legalize extradition of people from Hong Kong to China. Against the same totalitarianism, the 1989 democracy movement and the 2019 anti-extradition movement faced very similar political repression, indiscriminate violence, a refusal to engage in dialogue, defamation, purges, and a refusal to conduct an independent investigation of the truth. The participants in the two movements also displayed similar ideals, made similar sacrifices, and showed similar courage.
The CCP has been trying to erase people’s memory of the truth about the June 4 Tiananmen Massacre and has extended such efforts to suppress democracy and human rights in Hong Kong through propaganda and repression by force. At this moment, the June 4 Museum has an even greater responsibility to protect the truth, to preserve the evidence of the CCP's massacre, to assist the society in learning from fact-based history, and to defend the universal values of democracy, freedom, and human rights. Therefore, we have put on this new exhibition on these two vast movements, June 4 and anti-extradition, and hope to learn from comparing and contrasting the two, to make contributions to the yet-to-be-vindicated June 4 in China and the on-going struggle of the anti-extradition movement in Hong Kong.
Features of the new exhibition at the June 4 Museum
1. The exhibition includes sections on the background, chronology, methods, campaign materials, and stories of participants in the two movements. Many people have compared June 4 and the anti-extradition movement. The heated battles of the anti-extradition movement have been called ‘June 4 2.0’ or the ‘Hong Kong version of June 4’. This is the first relatively comprehensive and detailed exhibition that compares the two.
2. An area for photo-taking: Designed by Zunzi, the famous Hong Kong political cartoonist, the area reproduces scenes, participants and slogans from June 4 and the anti-extradition movement, juxtaposing the statues of the Goddess of Democracy in Beijing and Lady Liberty in Hong Kong. Although the movements took place 30 years apart, the spirit of fighting for democracy and resisting authoritarianism is the same. Visitors can take photos and show solidarity with the movements for democracy and human rights.
3. Masks of Pepe and the LIHKG Pig: Fiberglass masks made by Singjai based on the resistance icons and events of the anti-extradition movement encourage visitors to learn about the resistance stories of Hong Kong people.
4. A reading corner: Visitors can read books, magazines, newspapers and leaflets related to June 4 and the anti-extradition movement, as well as declassified files from the United Kingdom, the United States, and Canada related to June 4.
5. A video area showing videos about June 4 and the anti-extradition movement
6. A gifts corner where books and souvenirs related to June 4 and the anti-extradition movement can be purchased
The exhibition is made possible due to assistance from different parties and volunteers of Hong Kong Alliance, for which we are deeply grateful.
Finally, we call on all sectors of society to donate and support the June 4 Museum. The museum has faced constant political pressure. Due to the difficulties posed in renting a venue, our ultimate goal is to purchase the space where the museum is housed. We rely on donations from the public to run the June 4 Museum, so that we can, in the long term, resist the lies of the CCP.
Please donate and support 'June 4th Museum'
