A work by Danish sculptor Jens Galschiot to commemorate the 1989 pro-democracy movement went on display yesterday in the home of Hong Kong's own limited brand of democracy - but not for long. Fragments of a Democracy Story was put on show in the Legislative Council's ante-chamber for about 20 minutes, two days before the 20th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square crackdown. But it was moved to the secretary general's office after opposition by Beijing loyalists. 'Justice could only be manifested for 20 minutes, but at least it was displayed,' said independent democrat Cyd Ho Sau-lan, who took the sculpture to Legco after receiving it from Galschiot's sons, Lasse and Kasper, at a ceremony in Times Square. In a statement read by his sons, Galschiot, who was turned back at the airport on Saturday, said he hoped the gift would remind people of the Tiananmen crackdown. 'My reason for donating my sculpture to the parliamentary institution of Hong Kong is that I believe it is important this specific institution has a memorial of the massacre of the students of the Tiananmen Square on June 4, 1989,' the statement said. The Legislative Council Secretariat said president Tsang Yok-sing 'cannot accept' the sculpture before the Legco Commission meets to decide what to do with it. The commission will meet on June 11. Ip Kwok-him, of the Democratic Alliance for the Betterment and Progress of Hong Kong, who is a member of the Legco Commission, said the sculpture should either be sent back or 'put away in a storeroom'. 'That thing is very political and we should not display it just because someone wanted to make a political point. Should we display, say, a bomb, just because someone gave it to Legco?' Mr Ip asked. But unionist lawmaker Lee Cheuk-yan said it should be displayed next to the Olympic torch donated by former Legco president Rita Fan Hsu Lai-tai, which is displayed in the Legco corridors. Liberal Party chairwoman Miriam Lau Kin-yee said she was open to the idea of displaying the sculpture, although a decision should be made by the commission. Galschiot's sons donated another similar sculpture to members of the Hong Kong Federation of Students, who are on a 64-hour hunger strike in commemoration of June 4. 'The sculpture is fragmented, and only part of a whole to symbolise that the students of Tiananmen have not yet been rehabilitated ... it is you who have to carry on the torch of freedom which has been passed on by the students of Tiananmen in 1989,' the sculptor said. The two new sculptures were inspired by Galschiot's original creation, The Pillar of Shame, which arrived in 1997 and is on display at the University of Hong Kong. Former Tiananmen student leader Xiong Yan , who arrived in the city on Saturday, was among those supporting the dozen hunger strikers in Times Square yesterday. 'Looking at you today made me remember the sad but courageous picture of Tiananmen. Take care of your health in your sacrifice,' he said as one hunger-striker, Crystal Chow Ching, fainted after going without food for 20 hours. 'The future of China relies on you.' A coalition of student groups from seven tertiary institutions published a magazine yesterday commemorating the 20th anniversary of June 4.
