This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 82%. (I’m a bot)


The organiser of the Hong Kong Tiananmen massacre vigil has called upon citizens to light candles across the city to mourn victims of the bloody 1989 crackdown in Beijing, as the annual Victoria Park event may not go ahead as planned under the extended coronavirus social gathering ban.

At the reopening of the June 4th Museum on Wednesday, Lee Cheuk-yan of the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China accused the government of using the epidemic as a pretext to interfere with the vigil.

The exhibition at the June 4th Museum this year is a comparison between the student movement in Beijing 31 years ago and the months-long protests in Hong Kong.
