The Chinese democracy movement

backs The Color Orange campaign


Other languages:   

 

The Chinese democracy movement (the Hong Kong Alliance) has decided to back The Color Orange Campaign. The decision implies that not have to do with just a well-intentioned project concocted by a Danish sculptor, but that the orange manifestations are now backed by one of the cornerstones of the Chinese democracy movement.

The Alliance will take active part in the campaign producing handkerchiefs, wristbands and T-shirts and other accessories to be used during the manifestations during the Olympics in Beijing 2008.

In April the Alliance and Jens Galschiot will carry out a joint major event in Hong Kong. They will paint the 8 metre high sculpture The Pillar of Shame orange. The sculpture was put up 1997 in Hong Kong as a memorial for the many students killed in the Tiananmen massacre 1989. As the sculpture is renowned in Hong Kong, in China and the rest of Asia, the event will presumably get a huge repercussion in the world’s media.

The Hong Kong Alliance is one of strongest fractions within the Chinese democracy movement. It was founded in the wake of the Tiananmen massacre on 4th June 1989 by a group of prominent personalities with the aim of bolstering up a democratic transformation of China.

The organization helps dissidents getting out of China and documents encroachments perpetrated in China. The Alliance also supports plenty of activities and demonstrations in Hong Kong to highlight the Chinese government’s infringements against its own people. The most poignant activity is the annual Candlelight Vigil where Hong Kong citizens, sometimes hundreds of thousands, gather on 4th June to commemorate the crackdown on the student protesters in 1989.

 

The official name of the Hong Kong Alliance is ’Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China’.
