Citizens gathered in Mongkok and Prince Edward areas on 30 August 2020, urging fellow Hongkongers not to forget the 8.31 Prince Edward police attack.
Aug 31 2020 will be the one-year mark of the attack.
In the evening, a middle-aged couple laid down flowers outside Prince Edward MTR station, while others stopped to take photographs. Another woman picked up flowers on the ground and placed them on the railings, and added notes to the wrappers: “in memory of the injured and the dead on 8.31”, “never forget”. However, officers from the Mongkok Police Station warned her of violating the 599G gathering ban, and urged her to leave.
15 minutes later, a group of police officers came out from the police station to remove the two flower bouquets. More citizens brought flowers after they left, tying flowers to the railings.
No more than 5 minutes later, more officers tear down all the flowers.
