Press Invitation: Black Cloth March

Thirty years ago, the Chinese Central Government promised Hong Kong “one country, two systems” and “high degree of autonomy”. Those promises have never been fulfilled and democracy in Hong Kong is stifled. Students in those days have their hair turned grey already while students today are going on strike and united in their fight for democracy. The whole city is united in its fight for democracy. This Sunday, Occupy Central withLove and Peace, together with a number of civic organizations, will be holding a black-cloth demonstration to tell the world how Hong Kong people have been betrayed.

The OCLP initiators, pan-democratic partners, civic organizations, citizens and volunteers will be wearing black clothes and yellow ribbons, holding a piece of black cloth together in their march. Martin Lee, the three OCLP initiators and student representatives will be speaking at the starting and finishing points of the march.

Meeting point: East Point Road, Causeway Bay (at 3:00pm)
Time: 3:30pm – 6:30pm
