Press Invitation: Shave for Democracy

7 Sept 2014 | OCLP Secretariat

The Mid-Autumn Festival has a tradition of civil disobedience in Chinese history. In defiance of the Central Government’s denial of Hong Kong people’s democratic rights, we pledged an era of peaceful resistance.

Tomorrow, the day after Mid-Autumn Festival, OCLP organizers and more than 30 supporters, including Legislative Councillor Alan Leong Kah-kit, SC, lawyer Herman Tang, cartoonist Zunzi Wong, performance artist Au Yeung Tung, student, teacher, pastor and social worker will be shaving their heads in public. With solemnity and unswerving determination, we want to reclaim justice.

Joining the call of Civil Human Rights Front’s Yellow Ribbon Campaign, OCLP volunteers will be making yellow ribbons at the event. OCLP organizers, with their heads shaved, will distribute the yellow ribbons in the city afterwards.

Date:     9 Sept  (Tuesday, the day after Mid-Autumn Festival)
Time:    3:00pm to 5:00pm
Venue:  St. Bonaventure Church, 89 Po Kong Village Road, Tze Wan Shan, Kowloon
