Free The Chinese Lawyers

Protesters marched from Western Police Station to Central Government Liasion
to demand the release of lawyers detained by Chinese authorities. Since the
disappearance of Chinese lawyer Wang Yu and her family on 9 July 2015, more
than 319 lawyers, legal workers, rights defenders and their families from
24 provinces have been affected by the 709 crackdown.

One year on, 24 individuals are still in detention with 9 being rights lawyers,
2 legal assistants and 13 human rights defenders. However, with the due process
and rights of the detainees grossly violated, the legal basis of such arrests
remained dubious.

Passionate Fans of Hong Kong Free Press

A couple of passionate supporters of Hong Kong Free Press express their true love
at the first anniversary party of the city's first crowd-funded non-profit English-
language online newspaper at Orange Peel in Lan Kwai Fong, Central.

Hong Kong Free Press (HKFP) was founded by independent journalist Tom Grundy
in response to concerns over declining press freedom in the territory, as an
alternative to the dominant South China Morning Post which have been
acquired by Jack Ma of Alibaba in Dec 2015.

Beginning in late 2015, access to the site from Mainland China was blocked by
the Chinese authorities.

110,000 Rally at July 1 Protest

Ching Cheong and Lau Shan-ching, both former political detainees of China, lead
110,000 in the annual July 1 protest march from Victoria Park in Causeway Bay
to Government headquarters in Admiralty on Friday afternoon. Bookseller Lam
Wing-kee, illegally detained for eight months by Mainland authorities, dropped out
from leading the march at the last minute owing to personal safety concerns.

Pro-independence groups brandishing former British colonial flags and signs
for independence tried to get in front of the march and were separated by
the police. A handful of pro-Beijing people tried to disrupt the rally
flying Chinese flags but were far out-numbered by protesters.
