Event

Hong Kong authorities rejected the application of the Civil Human Rights Front (CHRF) to begin Hong Kong's annual pro-democracy march, scheduled July 1, at the football pitches at Victoria Park (Causeway Bay) for the second consecutive year. Usage of the space on July 1 has been granted to the pro-mainland Hong Kong Celebrations Association, reportedly for its status as a charitable organization. The march is nonetheless expected to take place as scheduled on July 1, and may begin at the lawn at Victoria Park, next to the football pitches. Localized traffic congestion and disruptions are expected near the march route.

Context

Concerns are growing that special liberties and freedoms traditionally enjoyed by Hong Kong and its residents are under threat. Some activists are calling for Hong Kong to split from the mainland, a move that appears to have growing support.

Advice

Individuals in Hong Kong are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all local laws.
