London remembers the 31st anniversary of the Tiananmen Massacre

Due to London's Covid-19 lockdown rules that restrict meetings in public spaces to groups of six, commemoration of the June 4 Massacre will be carried out in a spontaneous way this year. Individuals and small groups who want to go to the Chinese Embassy on the evening of June 4 on their own, please consider wearing masks and keeping two metres apart for our collective wellbeing. Those who will remember the Massacre at home or locally may consider lighting candles wherever you are at 8pm, holding one-minute silence at 8:09pm and sharing your experiences on social media using hashtag #6431truth.

June 4 this year marks not only the 31st anniversary of the Tiananmen Massacre but also the first time that Victoria Park vigil is banned, which will become a symbolic moment corresponding to the end of 'One Country Two Systems' in Hong Kong following the adoption of the 'national security' laws. As we witness the loss of Hong Kong's relatively autonomous status, we also remind ourselves of the fact that autonomy of Tibetan and Uyghur peoples have never existed under the dictatorship of the Chinese Communist Party.

We will keep fighting for our goals:

Truth for June 4th; massacre on trial; end autocracy; democracy now.

Liberate Hong Kong; revolution of our time.

Free Tibet.

Free East Turkestan.



根據倫敦控制新冠疫情的相關規定,戶外聚會六人為限,所以今年六四紀念將採取小規模自發紀念的方式。個人或六人以下小組若在六四晚自發前往倫敦中國使館,請考慮佩戴口罩,保持兩米距離,保護好自己和其他在場者。若在家中或社區紀念,可以考慮在晚8時點燃蠟燭,8時09分默哀一分鐘,並在社交媒體上用 #6431truth分享您的經歷。
今年64不僅是天安門大屠殺31年,也是所謂的《香港 國安法 》通過後維園燭光集會首次被禁止,象徵著 "一國兩制 "的結束。見證香港失去相對自治地位的同時,也令人想起在中共專政下藏人和維吾爾人從未享有自治。
