China Bans All Tiananmen Square Candlelight Commemoration Events, Annual Vigil

This year marks the 32nd anniversary of the “Tiananmen Square Massacre,” the blatant, brutal bloodbath CCP authorities cruelly orchestrated in 1989 to suppress the patriotic and democratic movement.

ChinaAid reports that as June 4 approached, with the new National Security Law now in effect, the CCP prohibited the Chinese from holding any events to commemorate “June 4.” Hong Kong also banned the June 4 candlelight vigil, held each year during the past 31 years in Victoria Park.

In an update to ministry supporters, written by a ChinaAid Special Commentator, ChinaAid said that in Hong Kong, and in Macau, Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials sentenced four people to prison, including Joshua Wong who participated in the June 4th candlelight vigil in Victoria Park in 2020.

ChinaAid said CCP authorities forbade citizens from organizing any public rally, evolving from political reason, on June 4th. The CCP’s crackdown on all commemoration events has been ongoing in mainland China for 32 years. Each year, officials routinely imprison those who participate in commemoration events.

This year, due to the escalating crisis of China’s totalitarian regime and the approaching 100th anniversary of the CCP, government authorities have escalated and severely cracked down on folk commemoration events. Disturbing signs indicate that the CCP totalitarian regime fails to reflect on its actions and that it intends to embrace the universal civilization. The CCP’s intensified crackdown on folk commemoration events of “June 4th,” essentially depicts a vow that officials will pursue the opposite direction of the historical trend of human beings’ universal civilization.

Reports confirm that during the past three decades, Chinese individuals have held an annual photography exhibition and small-scale rally on June 4, the Day of the Tiananmen Square Massacre, in Macau. Officials, however, have banned June 4 commemoration events in Macau since 2020. The document that police issued which Macau activists posted reveals that authorities perceive the images, slogans, and information released in the June 4th commemoration rally held in the past years:

** defame and blaspheme the central government,

** incite subversion of State power, and

** destroy social harmony.
