Hong Kong Police on Anniversary of Tiananmen Massacre

For many years, activists in Hong Kong have organized street parades and candlelight vigils at a park in the center of Hong Kong.

The events mark the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre. On June 4, 1989, the Chinese military opened fire on unarmed college students, who had gathered to ask for democracy and uncensored education.

But authorities started cracking down on the gatherings in 2020.
