(Hong Kong—September 09, 2021) Today, Hong Kong police raid a closed June 4th Museum dedicated to the victims of Tiananmen Square in 1989. Officials also arrest Hong Kong Alliance leaders Lee Cheuk-yan, Albert Ho, and Chow Hang-tung and charge them with "incitement to subversion".

The Chinese Communist Party has targeted Hong Kong Alliance for many months. In August, police sent a letter requesting detailed information about the organization. Five other committee members were arrested yesterday for "failing to comply with notice to provide information". Police have accused the Alliance of being "agent[s] of foreign forces." This prompted authorities to apprehend alliance leaders and to raid the June 4th Museum. 

Concerning the arrests, ChinaAid President Bob Fu states: 
"This is a full manifestation of fascism in Hong Kong by the CCP, the international community should hold those brutal leaders in Beijing fully accountable with strong specific measures of sanctions."
