Tiananmen Square Massacre Anniversary: Protest held outside Chinese embassy in Tokyo

India Blooms News Service | @indiablooms | 06 Jun 2022, 12:47 pm

Tokyo: A large number of people demonstrated outside  the Chinese embassy in Tokyo to mark  the 33rd anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre in Hong Kong.

Japanese citizens, Tibetans, Uyghurs, Mongolians and others joined their Hong Kong friends demonstrating during the protest.

Calling for everyone never to forget Tiananmen Square, the participants highlighted the various human rights and other violations of international law by China: genocide in Xinjiang, suppression of the mother tongue in Inner Mongolia, cultural genocide in Tibet, violation of basic rights of speech and expression in Hong Kong, among others, reports ANI.

Later in the day, the activists intend to hold a candlelight vigil to remember the thousands who died in Beijing during the early days of June 1989, and countless others who have been at the receiving end of some of the harshest measures by the Chinese authorities, the Indian news agency reported.
