Description

(28 Jun 2017) Hong Kong is planning a big party as it marks 20 years under Chinese rule. But many people in the former British colony are not in the mood to celebrate.Pro-democracy activists targeted a giant flower sculpture bequeathed by Beijing in 1997 that is popular with mainland tourists. On Wednesday evening, they staged a sit-in, with some climbing up inside the sculpture, and chanted "No Xi Jinping" before police moved in to arrest them. Two days earlier they had briefly draped the sculpture in black cloth.Police cleared the scene and arrested dozens protesters, who had aimed to stay overnight before the Chinese leader's arrival to the city to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the city's return to China. The Golden Bauhinia Statue is a gift from China given on the handover day, 1 July 1997, to celebrate China resuming the sovereignty of Hong Kong and it stands in Bauhinia Square, where the official flag raising ceremonies take place.The activists also chanted for the release of the Nobel Prize laureate Liu Xiaobo. The literary critic and essayist has been reportedly diagnosed with terminal liver cancer and is currently on medical parole.You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/you...
