A concert supporting Hongkongers’ fight for freedom will be held in Taipei’s Liberty Square on Sunday by a new political coalition backing the re-election bid of President Tsai Ing-wen (蔡英文).

The purpose of the concert is to show Taiwanese solidarity with Hongkongers in their quest for democracy, according to the statement of event organizer the Defend Democracy Safeguard Taiwan Alliance (守民主護台灣大聯盟).

Hong Kong student activist Joshua Wong (黃之鋒) shared his support for the concert via video on Tuesday, saying that although freedom in Taiwan is normal, Hong Kong citizens currently face suppression by the police, with tear gas being deployed weekly.

He stressed that fighting for freedom has never been easy, and called for more artists to join the concert in support of Hong Kong.    [FULL  STORY]
