12th January 2020 – (Hong Kong) Police issued a letter of no objection to the organiser, HKCATea of ‘2020 Karma to Commies Universal Siege on Communists’ scheduled to be held today at Edinburgh Place in Central from 3pm to 5pm. The organiser wants the Hong Kong government to allow universal suffrage, failing which, ‘karma’ will fall upon Communist China.
Pro-democracy supporters have been organising rallies and assemblies of different themes from the daily ‘Lunch with You’ movement to district-specific events such as ‘Anti-parallel traders’ rally in Sheung Shui with the common purpose to irk the government to give in to their five demands. However, the rallies held in recent weeks have not been so effective as police have upped their ante in their enforcement by making swift arrests as soon as rioters made the first move to cause destruction.
Since Spark Alliance’s bank account was frozen by police, mass vandalism by rioters has significantly reduced.
Date: 12/1/2020 (Sun)
Time: 3PM – 5PM
Venue: Edinburgh Place
