香港已正式成為一個警察政權 Police State。
On July 1 every year since 2003, there has always been massive protest march on the streets in Hong Kong, with tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of people. Last year, the July 1 march was banned for the first time, but thousands of citizens still took to the streets spontaneously. This year, as the political atmosphere took a turn for the worse, the Civil Human Rights Front (CHRF) convener Figo Chan has been imprisoned. For the first time in 18 years, the CHRF did not apply to host the July 1 march. The League of Social Democrats and other groups wished to take over hosting a parade, but the police issued a letter of objection. Since the implementation of the National Security Law, the freedom of assembly in Hong Kong has existed in name only.
Most of the CHRF marches started from Victoria Park. Today, the police sealed off football fields 1 to 6 and the central lawn of Victoria Park at noon, quoting public security regulations, to prevent banned public gatherings. The closed area is the same as that on June 4 to prevent the candlelight vigil. It is illegal for anyone to enter or stay in the Victoria Park without permission which may result in imprisonment for 12 months.
Today is also the 100th anniversary of the Communist Party of China. A large-scale celebration was held in Beijing in the morning, and Hong Kong is also celebrating on a high note.
On the 24th anniversary of Hong Kong’s transfer of sovereignty and the centenary of the Communist Party of China, everyone should be jubilant. Yet, as the former police John Lee has ascended as Chief Secretary of Hong Kong, 10,000 police are deployed, and the Victoria Park Sealed off to prevent peaceful assembly of citizens, exposing Beijing and the Hong Kong regime’s infinite fear of the people.
Hong Kong has officially become a police state.
