It has been 35 years since the 1989 Tiananmen Crackdown in Beijing, but those in power have not taken any responsibility for the violent suppression of the protesters. “June Fourth” is still a forbidden phrase, and the human rights violations in Mainland China, Hong Kong, Xinjiang and Tibet have not ceased.
In Hong Kong, it used to be possible to mourn the atrocities committed on June Fourth in the public sphere. Today, that commemoration has been completely silenced by the National Security Law of 2020 and Article 23. Chinese authorities have even extended their suppression to overseas diaspora through intimidation, surveillance and harassment, inducing a chilling effect on any deviation from the party line.
“The struggle of people against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting.” We invite you to join us in solidarity with the imprisoned human rights defenders, to carry on the memory of the past, and to continue the fight against repression!
