Police ban takes the parade out of Hong Kong’s pride celebrations, amid violent protests in the city

The pride parade drew 12,000 people last year and this annual event has now for the first time been reduced to a static rally, with no march allowed as the organisers claim the force gave them late notice, rather than the usual month in advance.

The pride parade was forced to become just a static rally after police on Thursday rejected LGBT groups’ application for a march, amid Hong Kong’s intensifying civil unrest.
Yeo Wai-wai, director of the Hong Kong Pride Parade’s organising committee, accused police of informing them at the last minute, rather than the usual month in advance, leaving organisers with little time to liaise with guests, many of them distinguished diplomats. “The police have been clamping down on freedom,” said Yeo, also a member of the Civil Human Rights Front, which organised peaceful protests a few months ago to oppose the now-withdrawn extradition bill in June, drawing crowds estimated at more than a million.

The British should have given Kong Kong a referendum before abandoning them to China - we fought far harder for Gibraltar, but both were no less British!

I believe England should be demanding China honor the agreement instead of staying silent. Politics!
