Tiananmen Event: Hong Kong students hide tiny 'democracy goddesses' statue on campus

Hong Kong: Hong Kong University students have hid the tiny figurines of a "democracy goddess" around campus in the lead-up to the anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre, media reports said.

The anonymous acts defy the authorities' increasing crackdown on public recognition of the highly sensitive incident, BBC reported.

Hong Kong remained one of the regions in China where the June 4, 1989 event was marked even recently.

Public vigils were also held during those years.

However Beijing has now effectively banned the city's annual gathering and shut down Hong Kong's Tiananmen museum, reports BBC.

The figurines created by students at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) are a copy of the "Goddess of Democracy" statue which was pulled down by university officials last December, the British media reported.
