The massacre on June 4, 1989, was a watershed in mechanic Leung Wan-lung's life. Originally a member of a pro-China workers' union, Mr Leung took to the streets supporting the pro-democracy movement in China. Mr Leung, 43, is now a member of the Kui Shek Social Service Group and works as a mechanic for the Drainage Services Department. He lives in Wang Tau Hom, near Kowloon Tong, and is unmarried. What's on your mind? I'm thinking about the June 4 incident. It is a tragic event in the history of China and should be remembered. What are you going to do about it? I will be attending rallies and also the candlelight vigil on June 4. I think those who witnessed the incident on television seven years ago will not be able to forget it - the images just will not fade and vanish. If one day I have children I would definitely tell them about it. Are you disappointed that fewer and fewer people are coming to rallies commemorating June 4? I'm not disappointed at all. I believe the people still remember the incident and the spirit of the movement has taken root in their hearts. They've stayed silent but that doesn't mean they're not bitter about the incident. I think they're afraid to show their feelings out of consideration for their family and friends. Most of us are not celebrities but small fry. Does your family try to dissuade you from taking part? Yes, they do. They said by taking part I would get into trouble and that would affect them - this is just what everybody thinks and fears. But I am not afraid about potential retribution - I wouldn't let physical pain affect my determination. And I believe that there will be retribution, in the form of obstacles they will put into the paths of those who have offended them. Do you think these commemorative events will be held after 1997? It depends on the format. Obviously, rallies won't be tolerated, but I think these events will go on in the form of brief sit-ins in Victoria Park or in front of the headquarters of the New China News Agency. It will be just like resting out in the open to cool off from the heat. Will you keep taking part in these events after the handover? I'd have to see the number of people taking part. If there are a lot, I wouldn't mind joining them. But if there are only a handful, I don't think I'd like to run the risk.
