Szeto Wah, chairman of the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movement in China, launches a kite in protest at Hong Kong's proposed national security laws yesterday. The alliance flew kites at the former Kai Tak airport to protest against the proposed laws and the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre. Despite thunderstorms in the morning, about 200 members of the group took part in the annual Kite Day. Dozens of kites emblazoned with slogans such as 'Don't forget June 4' and 'Against Article 23' took to the skies. Alliance vice-chairman Mak Hoi-wah said: 'This is an event which has been held since 1989. 'No matter what happens, we won't postpone it ... It is a commemoration of the sacrifices in the massacre.'
