【蘇格蘭六四：延續香港燭光】 June 4th in Scotland: continuation of the candlelight from Hong Kong
Commemoration of the Tiananmen Massacre, is a war on the memory of the truth. 34 years ago, the students, workers and citizens in Peking called for democracy, anti-arbitrage and anti-corruption in Tiananmen Square but were bloodily suppressed by the Communist regime. Nevertheless, the pursuit for the ideal of democracy has never halted.
Lives Perished But the Ideal Persists
Hongkongers were enlightened from the Tiananmen Massacre to continue the pursuit for freedom, democracy and human rights. Through various forms of struggles, some fellow citizens even sacrificed their youth and freedom for resisting the forceful expropriation of land for the high-speed railway construction, standing up against the brainwashing national education, opposing the undemocratic constitutional reforms…
In 2019, again millions of Hongkongers took to the street against the Extradition Bill to defend freedom and human rights. Some of them because of that have been sacrificed, imprisoned, persecuted…
Numerous nations, also being repressed by CCP and different tyrannies, are pursuing the ideal of democracy and freedom by various means.
Lest We Forget
Today, we have left our homeland and therefore cannot light the candles in Victoria Park. Fortunately, however, we have known more fellows for the same goal on the same path. On June 4th, you are invited to gather with us in Princes Street Gardens next to Scott Monument, to let the world know that even not in Victoria Park we never forget the faith in democracy, freedom and justice.
Location: East Princes Street Gardens (Next to Scott monument ), Edinburgh
