Global Commemoration of the 33rd Anniversary of  “June Fourth”

We adhere to the June 4th spirit and promote constitutional democracy!
Hong Kong fell into darkness, we will light a candle!

Never forget June 4th! What happened in 1989 at the Tiananmen Square will always remain in our minds and hearts.

Hong Kong used to be a sea of lights at the June Fourth vigil. 180,000 turned out for a mass candlelight vigil in 2019 on the 30th anniversary. Now the authorities have been banning the vigil since two years ago. Over 150 activists are in jail, one of the accusations is that they organised this vigil. Prof. Perry Link together with 14 scholars have submitted the nomination of Hong Kong prisoners of conscience Chow Hang-tung, Gwyneth Ho, Jimmy Lai, Lee Cheuk-yan, and Joshua Wong for the 2022 Nobel Peace Prize. We will not let down the people in Hong Kong, let’s light a candle not only for the dead souls from Tiananmen but also for the courageous people in Hong Kong.

People in China suffer under the zero Covid policy of Xi Jinping, we would encourage them with our commemoration action.

The Ukraine Russian war continues and there is still no light at end of the war tunnel. We stand with Ukraine and condemn the aggressor. We mourn for the innocent people killed in war and light a candle for them. Solidarity with Ukraine!

Solidarity with people in Taiwan, who suffered under the military threat of China.

Solidarity with people in Tibet and Southern Mongolian, who faced the destroy of their culture, language and religion.

Solidarity with Uyghur people in Xinjiang, more than one million people are detained in the notorious “re-education camps”.
