Civic Groups Hold Pro-Hong Kong Demonstration|12港人"被送中"失聯 公民團體遊行聲援
According to reports, 12 anti-extradition protestors in Hong Kong were fleeing to Taiwan when they were captured by PRC authorities. They have not been able to contact their families for two months. On the afternoon of Oct. 25, a civic group staged a street protest in Taipei in support of Hong Kong and called on the PRC to release the demonstrators immediately.
Retrocession for Hong Kong, revolution.
The anti-extradition protestors in Hong Kong who call themselves the "Valiants" appeared in Taiwan on the afternoon of the 25th. Though dressed like Hong Kong's Valiants, these demonstrators were actually a local civic group and a group of immigrants from Hong Kong. They staged the protest to show support for Hong Kong, and demanded the immediate release of 12 protestors currently being detained in China.
China is holding these 12 Hong Kong citizens incommunicado and has taken away their right to defend themselves. We need more people to speak up.
According to reports, 12 anti-extradition protestors fled Hong Kong for Taiwan several months ago. They were reportedly captured by PRC authorities en route, and their families have not heard from them for two months.
Of course I am worried. If I weren't worried, I wouldn't have come here. They are arresting people every day. My whole family immigrated to Taiwan.
Immigrants from Hong Kong generally keep a low profile when taking part in protests in Taiwan. Last year, Hong Kong singer Denise Ho was attacked with paint while demonstrating in Taiwan. More recently, a Hong Kong citizen was allegedly tailed by private investigators. Democratic Progressive Party Deputy Secretary-General Lin Fei-fan says Hong Kong citizens are unable to speak freely even if they are by Taiwan.
The Chinese Communists are surveilling Taiwan, so (Hong Kong citizens) are not that free even though there are many demonstrations.
The private detectives were reportedly hired by a Hong Kong citizen named Lee Bin-hao. The National Immigration Agency says Lee violated the Laws and Regulations Regarding Hong Kong and Macao Affairs and other laws and has revoked Lee's residency permit. Lee was deported on the 25th. Civic groups continue to call on the government to turn Taiwan into an Asian battlefront to oppose the expansion of China's authoritarianism.
