Hong Kong mourns Tiananmen Victims

Les habitants de Hong-kong depuis la rétrocession en 1997 sont dans une position politique unique et fragile. Bénéficiant du principe "Deux pays deux systèmes" instauré par Deng Xiao Ping , ils ont conservé leurs institutions et théoriquement leur liberté de parole. Mais le chef de l'exécutif n'est toujours pas désigné au suffrage universel et les atteintes aux droits se font de plus ne plus nombreux.
Chaque année à l'occasion du 4 juin pour la célébration du massacre de Tiananmen des milliers de Hongkonguais se rassemblent pour une longue veillée dans le parc Victoria.




Hong Kong 06/04/2010 Victoria Park. Young hongkongers are handling candles during the vigil in memory of the crackdown of the democratic protest on Tiananmen square June 4th 1989. A new generation of protesters have emerged in Hong kong, as it was obvious during this evening. Organizers were expecting around 50,000 people but they were around 150 000 and for a large part under 30 years old, with among them chinese students from the mainland. Those young demonstrators were more determined after a week of conflict about the statues "Goddess of Democracy" that the Hk's government has tried to forbidd and the coming vote about universal suffrage that chinese authorities try to delay as long as possible.
