Event

An annual pro-democracy march is scheduled to take place in Hong Kong on Wednesday, July 1, despite not being approved by police. The annual protest has been organized by the Civil Human Rights Front group (CHRF). Demonstrators are scheduled to gather at approximately 14:00 (local time) in Victoria Park where they will march to Tim Mei Ave at 15:00. The demonstration is expected to be well attended.

A heightened security presence is expected across Hong Kong on Wednesday, and clashes between protesters and police forces cannot be ruled out due to the demonstration not having been approved by the police.  

Advice

Members in Hong Kong are advised to avoid all demonstrations and political gatherings due to the potential exposure to crowd disturbances, opportunistic crime, and potential police crowd control measures. Travelers are also encouraged to monitor local news and media for further information relating to additional protests, including associated overland disruption.
