Police recently arrested four members of the “Spark Alliance”, a non-profit group that provides support protesters for alleged money laundering, and frozen $70 million in fund, causing dissatisfaction among some citizens. The public initiated a “Sparking the Free World Afire” rally at Edinburgh Place, Central, at 7 pm in support.
The rally was initiated by Sunny Cheung, spokesman for the delegation of international affairs from the tertiary education community, and Fergus Leung, incoming Central and Western District Councillor, and the Civil Rally Team. The rally was originally scheduled to be held in Chater Garden, but was changed to Edinburgh Place at the request of the police.
Ventus Lau, spokesman for the Civil Rally Team, said that the rally has been issued with a letter of no objection from the police, calling on citizens to participate, condemning the Hong Kong administration for violating the normal operation of the capitalist market, and impacting the reputation of Hong Kong as an international financial centre, arresting Spark Alliance members and freezing their assets without grounds.
At 7 pm, a crowd filled Edinburgh Place in Central with flags of many countries flying. Someone erected a large “Free HK” light panel. Thousands gathered calling for international attention.
