Hong Kong commemorates Tiananmen Square anniversary despite COVID ban
Hundreds of people gathered in a candlelight vigil in Hong Kong to commemorate the 32nd anniversary of the Tiananmen Square crackdown. The candlelight vigil was banned for the second year – citing coronavirus social distancing measures. Despite heavy police presence around Victoria park, commemorations occurred around the perimeter. Commotion broke out as tensions flared, with police dispersing crowds who gathered and arresting more than 20 activists.
