Vicki Kwong Leung Kwok-hung, known as 'Long Hair', emerged from prison with a radical new hairstyle yesterday after serving a two-week sentence for disrupting a Legislative Council session. The 41-year-old political activist stepped out of Lai Chi Kok Reception Centre with a mop-top haircut that was forced on him by prison regulations. Mr Leung, who had previously vowed not to cut his hair until China apologised for the Tiananmen Square massacre, said outside jail: 'My determination to support democracy will not change, regardless of the length of my hair.' He then swapped his white shirt for a Che Guevara T-shirt and headed for the Central Government Offices to join a rally for workers' rights. Mr Leung was jailed for 14 days on May 26 for shouting anti-government slogans in the Legislative Council Chamber on October 7 last year during a meeting attended by Chief Executive Tung Chee-hwa. Mr Leung said that while he had expected the sentence, 'the decision by the Government to imprison someone who expresses his own views and speaks for the working classes is indeed shameful. History will prove me innocent.' But he said his experience in jail was nothing compared to that of dissidents on the mainland. Mr Leung said he would consider running for a seat in the Legislative Council in September as a means of furthering his fight for democracy, although he admitted his lack of money would pose a serious impediment. He missed the candlelight vigil in Victoria Park for the first time on Sunday. His request for candles and black armbands was turned down by the Correctional Services Department 'for administrative reasons'.
