The Civil Hunan Rights Front (CHRF) initiated the International Human Rights Day March on Sunday on December 8. Massive crowd gathered at 2 pm, and started marching at 3 pm from Victoria Park to Chater Road.The Assembly has arranged 200 pickets. This is the first time that the CHRF march has been approved since 21 July.
The network station “Sing Jai” has previously recruited a group of volunteers, including designers and professional craftsmen, and produced 108 fiberglass Pepe and Piggie masks, to be used during the march. The sponsor, Lau Sai-leung, said: “I hope to tell the world with a humorous, confident, and relaxed manner that after half a year of tyranny in Hong Kong, Hong Kong people still have not given up. They are still united and confident to face the future. The Piggie and Pepe are two cartoon characters that often appear on the Lennon Walls. They are the most representative and recognizable resistance mascot. The 108 masks have different designs, they are painted in different colour, and they symbolize people with a story behind each one. I just want to attract the attention of foreign media during the parade and tell the world one by one what we have experienced in this campaign.”
When all lanes outside Victoria Park (the starting point of the protest march) are crowded with demonstrators, it is foreseen that this is another epic march for democracy. This time it may exceed 1 million again. Tens of thousands joined the march midway at Causeway Bay and Wan Chai.
