Hong Kong June 4th Vigil Organizers voted to disband on Saturday

On September 25, the core members of the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China voted 41-4 to disband the organization. The organization has a 32-year history of organizing annual vigils to commemorate the victims of the 1989 Tiananmen Square pro-democracy protests that were suppressed by the Chinese Communist Party. After mass pro-democracy protests in 2019, the Chinese Communist Party’s crackdown on Hong Kong civil society has intensified with the full implementation of the so-called Hong Kong’s National Security Law. Last month, the Hong Kong police abused their power by accusing the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China implicated in cooperating with foreign powers. Amnesty International Asia-Pacific Director Yamini Mishra said in an emailed statement that the organization was “effectively forced to disband.” The Chinese authorities are censoring all references to the crackdown on the pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong and are using the “National Security Law” to criminalize the opposition. The CCP uses the same tyranny as on the mainland to control freedom of expression in Hong Kong and severely restrict people’s democratic rights.
