Tribute to Edward Leung

4 years ago, Edward Leung Tin-kei, forerunner of “revolution of our times” and founder of Hong Kong Indigenous, was arrested in the police-civilian clash during the Lunar New Year.

When released on bail, he ran for the New Territories by-election. In one of his campaigns at Shatin’s Hundred Steps Plaza, he shouted, “If one day I am not acting myself, just push me down!”

However, his dream of entering the legislative council was not fulfilled. He was disqualified from the election, and later was jailed for committing “riot crime”. Another founder of Hong Kong Indigenous, Roy Wong Toi-yeung and member Alan Li Tung-sing had to seek asylum in Germany.

The seeds of “Liberate Hong Kong” were, nonetheless, sown, and flourished during the Anti-Extradition Movement in 2019.

On the 4th year anniversary of the “Fishball Revolution”, Roy Wong told Apple Daily that the yellow economic circle is proof of Hongkongers’ persistence and resistance.
