Students from four different Tuen Mun schools joined hands to create a human chain on Thursday morning.

Students and alumni from four secondary schools in Tuen Mun joined hands to create a human chain in Tuen Mun this morning.

According to local media HK01 and Ming Pao, about 400 to 500 people showed up to build the chain.

Students from Christian Alliance College, Tsung Tsin College, PLK Centenary Li Shiu Chung Memorial College, and Yan Oi Tong Chan Wong Suk Fong Memorial Secondary School stood hand in hand to criticise the government’s lack of response to all five demands, despite chief executive Carrie Lam Cheng Yuet-ngor’s announcement of the withdrawal of the controversial extradition bill on Wednesday.

The activity was also intended to show support to a student at PLK Centenary Li Shiu Chung Memorial College, who was arrested on a bus in Kowloon Bay on September 3.

Most participants arrived at 7am on a bridge near Shek Pai stop, a light rail station in Tuen Mun, holding cardboard signs that read slogans such as, “Five demands, not one less,” and “There are no rioters, only tyranny.”

The human chain then extended towards Christian Alliance College on Leung Choi Lane. Participants kept chanting, “Liberate Hong Kong, revolution of our times.”

The activity came to an end around 8am.
