Lowest turnout since 2008 for Hong Kong march in memory of June 4 crackdown

May 29, 2017

Hong Kong organisers said only 1,000 people turned up at an annual march on Sunday to remember the 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown, the lowest official count since 2008, while the police said the turnout was 450 at its peak.

The demonstrators renewed their calls for the Chinese authorities to revise the official Communist Party's verdict that the democracy movement was anti-state. 

An annual vigil will take place in Hong Kong on June 4.

Dragon boats will win every time! So sad.
Marchers speaking English (broken and stutter ones at that) to appeal to western people. That says it all. Treason and idiocy written all over their faces.
