早上8:30，大批中大畢業生在大學站外民主女神像旁聚集，身穿黑衣及戴口罩。9時開始遊行，經大學道向百萬大道進發，大呼「光復香港 時代革命」、「五大訴求 缺一不可」等口號。
The Chinese University of Hong Kong（CUHK） have a graduation ceremony today in the midst of anti-extradition protests. Chief Executive Carrie Lam, who is also Chancellor of CUHK, will be absent. A protest march is organised today at the CUHK graduation ceremony, starting at the University MTR station at 9 am, marching to the Main Quad, and mourning for a minute of silence for those who sacrificed for the movement. During the graduation ceremony, students turned their back when the national anthem was played.
The organisers reminded that as much as possible not to hinder the process of the graduation ceremony, and respect the school, the different opinions of the students and parents. The protest is to provide support at least 57 students arrested during the protests, including three medical students.
A group of students went to the main quad at midnight, and went through “decoration” of the ceremony area. They posted a number of posters for general strike, police brutality and anti-authoritarianism, and sprayed “V for Vendetta” mask and slogans on the stairs and walls. The student agreed not to post or paint in the main stage of the ceremony.
The students who participated in the operation pointed out that the graduation ceremony was a ceremony attended by many high-ranking officials. Many of the posters on the main quad had been torn down. They wanted to use the graduation ceremony to restore the posters and take the opportunity to raise awareness of the current social situation.
At 8:30 in the morning, a large number of graduates from Chinese University gathered outside the University Station near the statue of Goddess of Democracy, dressed in black and wearing masks and hard hat. At 9 o’clock, the march began through the University Road to the main quad, chanting “Free Hong Kong, Revolution of the Time” and “5 Demands, Not One Less”.
Upon arrival at the main quad, they sang “Glory to Hong Kong” and chanted “HongKongers, Resist” and “Dissolving Police Force Immediately”. After that, they mourned for a minute in silence for the sacrificed.
Suddenly, a man speaking Mandarin, apparently a student from Mainland China, wielded a sharp knife towards the students and sang the Chinese national anthem. When the reporter went forward and asked him why he was holding a knife, he dropped the knife. The university security guard took him and the knife away. The graduates continued their protest rally and ignored the man.
