Hong Kong – On 5 Jan, the “Walk With You: Against Parallel Trading Rally” took place in Sheung Shui with the letter of no objection granted by the police one day before the event. According to the organizer, over 10,000 citizens joined the march.
The lawful protest, however, had been obstructed by the police. Not only that the police forbade the public from staying in the park area, they also asked citizens in the park to leave. Before the letter of no objection expired, police even surrounded, searched and arrested a large number of civilian for “unlawful assembly”.
