INTRODUCTION

Protesters gathered in various locations across Hong Kong on Sunday to mourn the death of a university student who fell from a car park floor in unexplained circumstances near a police dispersal operation.

Messages had been circulating online, calling for people to gather at shopping malls in places such as Central, Tuen Mun, Sha Tin, Tseung Kwan O, Tsuen Wan, Causeway Bay and Kowloon Tong at 2pm. A prayer meeting was also set to take place at Chater Garden in Central at 7pm, led by Reverend Chu Yiu-ming and Auxiliary Bishop Joseph Ha Chi-shing.

The actions came a day after thousands flooded Tamar Park on Saturday night for a peaceful vigil to mourn the death of Hong Kong University of Science and Technology student Chow Tsz-lok.

There were also calls on the internet for a general strike and class boycott on Monday, with protesters planning to disrupt MTR stations and block highways from 7am.
