'Black Lives Matter' Protests Against Police Brutality & Injustice Spread Global

On 25 May, George Floyd, a black man, was killed in Minneapolis, United States while
handcuffed with his neck pinned under the knee of a white police officer, Derek Chauvin,
for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, as he gasped, 'Please, I can't breathe.'

Manslaughter charges have been brought against Derek Chauvin.

Anger over Floyd's death has bubbled over into protests across the US calling for
an end to police brutality and injustice.

According to a tweet with video by Wei Quanbo (@awei3742), 'On 1 Jun 2020,
the police in Santa Monica, Los Angeles, arrested 3 Chinese-speaking Chinese students
at the riot, who revealed that they were led by the China consulate officials and instructed
them to take part and instigate black people smashing and looting riots.'

Thousands across the UK, Germany, Italy, New Zealand, Canada, and more condemn
racism and demand justice at global Black Lives Matter protests.

A 'Black Lives Matter' peaceful protest is scheduled in Hong Kong at the US Consulate
General on Sunday, 7 June at 1 pm. Over 600 are going or interested as of today.

Hong Kong Police Ban Tiananmen Vigil for First Time in 30 Years

Hong Kong police on Monday banned the annual June 4 vigil marking the 1989 Tiananmen
Square massacre citing the coronavirus pandemic, the first time in 30 years.

Lee Cheuk-yan, chair of the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic
Movements of China - organiser of the annual vigil, said alliance members would
still enter Victoria Park in groups of 8 to comemorate that night.

At least 60 booths will be set up across the city in the afternoon to distribute candles and
they called on the public to light candles at 8:09 pm across the city, observe 1 minute of
silence and join an online rally to commemorate the June 4 massacre. The public are
encouraged to share photos and messages on social media with hashtag #6431truth.

Lee Cheuk-yan called the ban a political decision even before the National Security Laws
are enacted, pointing out that schools have reopened, large religious gatherings are
allowed and commercial activities have largely resumed.

180,000 attended the annual candlelight vigil to commemorate the 30th anniversary
of June 4 last year, shown in this photo.

The stunning sea of candles at June 4 vigil at Victoria Park is no longer?

"We are Back" - "Lunch with You" in Central Undaunted by National Security Laws

Angered by Beijing's full-blown attack on Hong Kong by introducing National Security Laws
directly by the National People's Congress on 28 May, threatening 'One Country, Two Systems',
the protests have been reactivated. Central Flashmob protest is now revived regularly.

Netizens launched the “With You Lunch” at the Landmark in Central, at 1 pm today, to
protest against the Hong Kong version of National Security Laws, decided by
the National People's Congress on 28 May, threatening One Country Two Systems.

At 1:15 pm, a few dozen protesters started gathering at all 3 levels of Landmark
atrium in Central. They raised the black flags 'Free Hong, Revolution of Our Time',
colonial Hong Kong flag, carried yellow and black umbrella and sang 'Glory to
Hong Kong', demonstrating they are resolute in '5 Demands, Not One Less' in their
protest, undaunted by at least 5 police vans deployed outside the mall.
