Mourning of Leung Ling-kit’s Death in Central 11 Months On
On 15 June last year, Leung Ling-kit, a protester wearing a yellow raincoat with “Carrie Lam Killing Hong Kong, Evil Police Cold-blooded” written on his back, stood high above Pacific Place in Admiralty, demanding the Hong Kong government to withdraw the amendment to the extradition laws. Unfortunately, he fell and died. He was the first protester who passed away in the anti-extradition movement and awakened more Hong Kong people to join the struggle.
Today is 11 months after Leung’s death, netizens called on a “11th month mourning for Leung”. At 1pm, over 100 citizens gathered on all 3 floora at the atrium of the Landmark in Central. Banners reading “Follow your last wish to guard our city” and “Police brutality unchecked, Citizens will not rest.” A black flag of “Free Hong Kong, Revolution of Our Time” and a colonial era Hong Kong flag was raised.
Citizens sang “Glory to Hong Kong”, and chanted “5 Demands, Not One Less.”
The citizens on the scene all wore masks. Everyone stood scattered with no more than 8 people in a group. The Silver-haired Group founder Tam Kwok-sun distributed packs of 5 surgical masks with “Bravo Hong-Konger”. There are multiple police vehicles outside the Landmark, uniformed police patrolling and intercepting passers-by. Police did not entered the Landmark.
