Four activists who sat in the middle of Connaught Road, Central, went on trial yesterday for obstruction. Yang Kuang, 43, producer of Citizen's Radio, and three others were accused of blocking traffic after the Legislative Council passed the political reform package on June 25. Chief Inspector Lam Hung-chuen, who ordered officers to carry them to the footpath, said he believed it was an act of protest. The trial continues today in Eastern Court.
