As reported by Local Press on June Fourth this year, at the candlelight vigilance held on the same evening by Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements in China (HK Alliance) in Victoria Park in commemoration of the Tiananmen Square Massacre, a participant was required to put away a national flag of the Republic of China, while HK Alliance always advocates “Construct a Democratic China”.

Subsequently, the participant concerned, identified as Mr. So Kin-ming, Vice Chairperson of Generalissimo Chiang Kai Shek Association Hong Kong, left a comment to the above-mentioned report, words to the effect that on that evening, he put away the flag of ROC upon the request of another participant, rather than HK Alliance itself.

However, in the same comment, Mr. So also mentioned Szeto Wah, the deceased Chairperson of HK Alliance, had for three consecutive years prevented him from waving the national flag of ROC, by announcing the prohibition with a loudspeaker on the stage, before the candlelight vigilance started.

As shown in the clip, a staff of HK Alliance advised So Kin-ming to put away the ROC flag, saying, “Just to avoid any unnecessary dispute with people and misunderstanding by people”.

At that time, Mr. So indicated that he had already told the organizer that he would put away the flag before the candlelight vigilance started. He said that he himself was neither shouting slogans nor messing with the gathering. While he was rolling up the ROC flag, a HK Alliance staff approached him and alleged that there were participants who were “disturbed by the sight” of the flag.
