Defiant Bookseller Lam Leads Thousands in Protest

Hong Kong bookseller Lam Wing-kee defies Beijing again as he led 6,000
outraged protesters to march against suppression of free speech two days
after he broke silence to give explosive details of his eight-month
illegal detention and staged confessions by Mainland China authority.

The other four booksellers – Lee Bo, Gui Minhai, Lui Bo and Cheung Ji-ping –
from the Causeway Bay Bookstore which specialised in books critical of
China’s Communist party leaders went missing since October 2015. All
except Gui had returned to Hong Kong in March while refusing to
discuss their disappearance in any detail. Enquiries from Hong
Kong to Mainland authorities have gone unanswered.

125,000 at June 4 Vigil

125,000 in Hong Kong participated at candlelight vigil at Victoria Park
in memory of the 27th anniversary of June 4 Tiananmen Square Massacre.

The massive turnout is impressive, despite the lowest in 7 years, as
there was heavy rain before and for the first time, the Hong Kong
Federation of Students did not join the biggest rally in the world
commemorating the crackdown in Victoria Park due to the growing
localist attitude.

The organiser collected HK$1.74 million, HK$400,000 more than last
year, in local currency and RMB (from China) showing increasing
support from both locals and visitors from Mainland China.

The future looks brighter amidst the sea of candles at Victoria Park.
