Activists are holding a commemoration rally in Admiralty on Friday, September 28, on the four-year anniversary of the start of the Occupy Central movement. The event will be held at 16:00 (local time) until 21:00 at the Lennon Wall at the Central Government Complex. Transportation disruptions and a heightened security presence are likely.
The event is being held to commemorate the anniversary of a police crackdown in 2014 on protesters during the pro-democracy Umbrella Movement, which began 79 days of associated protests termed "Occupy Central." The anniversary protest is also being held shortly after the government banned the pro-independence political party Hong Kong National Party (HKNP) on Monday, September 24, claiming it was a threat to national security.
Individuals in Hong Kong are advised to anticipate a heightened security presence and possible transportation delays in Admiralty and avoid all public gatherings as a precaution.
