June 4 was the 31st anniversary of the Tiananmen Square protests. Vigils were held in both Taipei and Kaohsiung. During the latter, groups pushing for the recall of Kaohsiung City Mayor Han Kuo-yu marched and released sky lanterns.
At 8:09 p.m. on June 4, a moment of silence lasting for 64 seconds was held in Taiwan and Hong Kong to commemorate the Tiananmen Square protests. Hong Kong nationals based in Taiwan organized a candlelight vigil at Taipei's Liberty Square. Causeway Bay Books founder Lam Wing-kee and Hong Kong lyricist Albert Leung were in attendance.
I think the Communist Party of China is being ridiculous. Not only are you not allowed to mention the words "June 4," but their websites have also deleted questions about June 4. Many voices are disappearing.
Leung said he as a Hong Konger is not afraid of China's threats.
This phrase is really dangerous in Hong Kong, but I was born as a Hong Konger and as a person and I'm not afraid. May the heavens exterminate the Chinese Communist Party and end the one-party dictatorship.
Several thousand people attended the vigil, and sang "Glory to Hong Kong," the anthem of the anti-extradition bill protests.
Let's go, Hong Kong people. Let's go, Kaohsiung people. Let's go.
Groups supporting the recall of Kaohsiung City Mayor Han Kuo-yu also organized a vigil in Kaohsiung. They marched through Gushan District and released sky lanterns to mourn victims and pray for Hong Kong.
