26 April Hong Kong Airport,

We have just received this message from the Orange group in the airport of HK

 

Sry for the rough draft, but the labtop is running low on batteries and

they're trying to kick us out right now! (make us take the next plane)

.. vagn, can you forward this to ocean and the alliance

~Jens, Kasper and Lasse

 

Can China ban the color orange

or Can China make Hong Kong ban the color orange.

In this very moment (Saturday 26/4 10.15 pm) we are contained at the

Hong Kong

immigration office. We are refused entrance to Hong Kong for no

apparent reason. Our and the democracy movements lawyer Albert Ho is

on his way to the airport to help us.

 

Friday evening, 4 danish people left Copenhagen to Hong

Kong. Thursday, two journalists from Ming Pao had a suspicion that the

orange team would not be allowed to enter to country. Therefore they

had flown to "Guang Zhou" and back to Hong Kong, to be able to

document a possible decline from inside the airport. The trip went

painless and, except of Galschiøt's orange bag and shirt, we were

fairly anonymous. When we landed in HK, however, we were a bit

surprised when a steward at the plane exit, greeted "See you,

Jens". An instant later the two journalist informed us by phone, that

4 officers in the airport had been expecting us, and questioned the

journalists about their doing. We didn't see the officers, and

everything went after the plan when the journalists and our camera man

checked in through customs. However, after a longer look at Galschiøts

paper, and a lot of discussion between the officials and him,

Galschiøt and Lasse and Kasper Markus (press and photography

responsible) were asked

come along to the immigration office.

Here our luggage was examined and camera's and mobile phones were

confiscated. The explanation of why we were there, was that it was a

routine check, even though they couldn't explain why the rest of the

passengers could freely enter through customs. We were seperately

questioned about our purpose in HK. We told them about the plans of

painting the Pillar of Shame at the University of Hong Kong orange,

and about our further plans in Hong Kong. Furthermore we were

questioned about our occupation, who financed the trip, and who was

behind our visit, etc. We spend the next hours partly being

questioned, partly waiting, and we're finally told that we for

"immigration reasons" could not enter HK, and should take the next

plane back. Although repeatingly asking for the reason of being denied

access, they would/could not explain it in more details than "we do

not live up to the requirements of immigration". When asking what

these requirements were, they wouldn't tell us. Therefore we decided

to deny leaving or signing anything, untill we had contacted the

embassy, a lawyer and our contacts in Hong Kong.

And this is where we stand. We finally got a hold of the ambassadeur,

but when we asked the immigration officials to explain him the

reasons, everyone refused to take the phone as they would not (could

not)

explain the reason for their refusal to let us enter HK.

We cannot see the reason why we are refused entrance to Hong Kong. Our main

purpose is to paint a sculpture, in memory of the Chianan Mihn

Massacre along with the Hong Kong U students

and the democratic alliance. We understand that the Hong Kong

Government are affraud that the OL torch rally will end in chaos and

riot-like manners like it happened in Europe, however the color orange

is a peacefull and non-violent concept (as Galchiot and his crew

also showed when comming to

HongKong in 1997 and 2005

LINK) The orange crew has

no intention of preventing the OL torch on the rally in Hong Kong or

even boycutting the OL. Our plan is to join the alternative torch

rally of the "Human Rights torch" of the Hong Kong alliance. We ask

how and for what reasons we are denied entrance, is it for wearing an

orange bag or to legally paint a sculpture to question human rights

and freedom of speach IN CHINA. If this is illegal in Hong Kong, maybe

this IS a good place to start fighting for Human rights.

 

The responsible of the entrance denial. Comander of airport Division

is Mr. L.Y. Chang
