Public Memorial in Hong Kong: Residents Mourn Despite Vandalism

In memory of Alex Chow and Chan Yin Lam, two students who have perished during the Anti-ELAB movement, Hong Kong Residents in Sheung Shui have set up a public memorial on December 28.

Although it is frequently vandalized, the site has been restored again today. Mourners put up post-it notes with messages to the deceased students; candles and flowers were also offered in their memory.

However, some individuals came and vandalized a painting of the deceased with paint. Residents seem accustomed to such acts and did not retaliate; the memorial site remains peaceful.
