Hong Kong, June 4 (CNA) Thousands of people attended a vigil in Hong Kong and hundreds attended one in Taipei on Saturday to mark the 27th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre, calling for an end to one-party dictatorship in China.
Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements in China, which organized the Hong Kong event, urged Beijing to redress the wrongs of the massacre, stop its arrest of dissidents and transform China from a single-party Communist state to a democracy.
A wreath was laid and videos about the massacre were shown at the event at Hong Kong’s Victoria Park.
On the other side of the Taiwan Strait, a smaller vigil was organized at Taipei’s Liberty Square, drawing around 200 participants. [FULL STORY]
