EVENT – ‘Black Cloth March’ for Democracy this Sunday, 3pm

The conveners of Occupy Central, pan-democrats, local civic organisations and regular citizens and volunteers are set to march from Causeway Bay to Central this Sunday in protest of the restrictive model for universal suffrage Beijing has proposed for Hong Kong.

Students across the city have pledged to wear yellow ribbons in school.

Demonstrators have been invited to “to tell the world how Hong Kong people have been betrayed” by wearing black and wearing yellow ribbons for universal suffrage.

“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.” – Occupy Central statement.

Occupy Central organisers – Rev. Chu Yiu-ming, Dr Benny Tai and Chan Kin-man – will speak alongside democracy icon Martin Lee at the start of the rally.
