While public commemorations of the military crackdown on June 4, 1989 were strictly banned inside China, an estimated 150,000 people gathered for a candlelight vigil in Hong Kong, despite heavy rains. From Reuters:
In Hong Kong, members of the crowd wore black and held candles under umbrellas. Protesters demanded Beijing overturn its denunciation of the pro-democracy movement as a “counter-revolutionary event”.
