『七一』民主大遊行

15th Anniversary of Hong Kong's Return to China

Pro-democracy March

 


全靠中聯辦扶植低票當選,復因隱瞞僭建誠信破產的梁振英,昨日就任特首幾小時後的首項「政績」,就是引發了40萬市民上街;是自03年、04年後,最大規模的7.1遊行。盡失人心的梁振英甫上台即變跛腳鴨,面臨嚴峻的管治危機。昨日遊行,市民由下午驕陽似火走到晚上煙花爆發。照耀新政府總部上空的燦爛煙火中,地上群眾爆發的呼聲,卻是憤怒的「梁振英,下台!」...(蘋果日報, 2.7.2012) (網頁

As many as 400,000 people took part in the pro-democracy march, as the organisers claimed, on 1 July 2012 in Hong Kong, the 15th anniversary of the return of the sovereignty of Hong Kong to China. Organised by the Civil Human Rights Front, the march had two major themes. The first was about people's dissatisfaction with the new Chief Executive C. Y. Leung calling on him to step down because of his lack of credibility and integrity. Marchers also called on the Chinese Government to fully investigate the death of Li Wangyang, a June 4 dissident who, according to the authorities, committed suicide amid obviously suspicious circumstances. Shortly before his death, Li was interviewed by the Hong Kong Cable TV and said that the June 4 incident must be vindicated. There were also various groups airing their grievances, including mainland petitioners from various parts of China calling on the Central government to investigate their unjust cases...

 

(My many thanks go to two friends who sent me some photos I was unable to take during the march.)
