Michelle Go’s Vigil
A record number of Hongkongers gathered for a vigil dedicated to mourning activists who had lost their lives in the bloody 1989 crackdown on democracy protesters in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square.
The crowds were dressed mostly in black and white as they began gathering between 6 and 7 p.m. Many came prepared with umbrellas and raincoats due to the light rain as battery-powered candles were distributed to the arrivals.
