Erasing News by Artist Sophie Cheun

Erasing News, by artist Sophie Cheung Hing-yee, is made with ink from newspapers on 1,500
pieces of erasers. It satirises that news is being erased by authoritarian governments and is
most poignant as the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress passed the Hong
Kong version of the National Security Law, severely restricting freedom in Hong Kong.

Over 100 'Lunch with You' at IFC - White Card Protest National Security Law - Interrupted by Riot Police

Citizens are very angry at Beijing’s full-blown attack on Hong Kong by introducing National Security
Law at National People’s Congress – undermining 'One Country, Two Systems'. The protests have
been reactivated and Central Flashmob protest is now revived regularly and more frequently.

Netizens launched the “Lunch with You” at IFC Mall in Central, at 1 pm today, undaunted by the
passing of the Hong Kong version of National Security Law.

At 1 pm, over 100 started gathering at all 3 levels of IFC Mall atrium in Central. They raised white
placards to protest, as 'Free Hong Kong, Revolution of Our Time' is deemed pro-Hong Kong
Independence and banned by the government. They sang 'Glory to Hong Kong', demonstrating
they are resolute in '5 Demands, Not One Less' in their protest.

At 1:45 pm, several dozen riot police entered IFC on various levels and interrupted the gathering. They
raised a blockade line, then stop and search the citizens on site.

Historical Tai Fu Tai Mansion

Tai Fu Tai Mansion is located in Wing Ping Village in Yuen Long. It was built around
1865 as residence of the wealthy Man Chung-luen, who was bestowed the title
of Tai Fu, which means senior official. It was declared a monument in 1987.
It was opened to the public in 1988.

Tai Fu Tai is a fine example of a traditional dwelling of the scholar-gentry class in
southern China and one of the most beautifully embellished historic
buildings in Hong Kong.

Some decorative details have a Western style. The door of the house is engraved with
Rococo reliefs, the windows and doors are colored glass, and the geometric patterns
of different shapes are built. The railings of the corridor on the second floor have
cross-shaped decorative patterns.

Caroline Zeller Savours Li Chit Garden

Caroline Zeller, a graphics designer and digital marketing consultant from Paris, loves
the old heritage buildings in Hong Kong, like the reconstructed facade of a Chinese
tenement house (Tong Lau) at Li Chit Garden in Wanchai.

On February 7, 1991, the 17 pre-war buildings on Li Chit Street were classified as dangerous.
All residents moved out in April, and later they were converted into a small Nanyang-style
park. The Land Development Company reconstructed the facade with leftover materials.

The street is named after Li Chit, the brother of Li Sing, the richest Chinese in Hong Kong
at the end of the 19th century, and a decorated official of the late Qing Dynasty. Li Sing
owns the title of Li Sing Street, Ko Shing Street, Chung Sau Street East and Chung Sau
Street West in Hong Kong.

Thousands March on July 1 Undaunted by Threat of 6,000 Riot Police

The annual July 1 march organised by the Civil Human Right Front (CHRF) was opposed by
the police for the first time since 1997. Earlier, the appeal was filed with the Public Assembly
and Procession Appeals Committee, and the committee rejected the appeal for the
risk of spreading coronavirus.

Legislator Eddie Chu, Democratic Party Wu Chi-wai, Deputy Convener of CHRF Figo Chan,
District Councillors Chui Chi-kin, Bull Tsang and Chan Wing-tai took over the march in their
personal capacity. They called on citizens to take to the streets. The march will meet at 2 pm
and depart at 3 pm. The route will start at East Point Road outside Sogo department
store in Causeway Bay and march to Chater Road in Central.

The theme is the same as the July 1 march of the CHRF. It is 'Rebel Against the Nationa
l Security Law and insist on 5 Demands.' The National Security Law was passed during the
July 1st march, but they will not restrict what slogans are used and what placards are held.

A large number of citizens were dissatisfied that the Standing Committee of the National
People's Congress passed the Hong Kong version of the National Security Law and wish
to protest against the evil law. At 3 pm, the march started outside the Sogo Department
Store in Causeway Bay, heading towards Chater Road in Central. People chanted 'Free
Hong Kong, Revolution of our Time', '5 Demands, Not One Less' and and gestured with
their hands.

The police raised the purple (first time, new for National Security) at least 5 times and blue
(illegal assembly) flag at least 20 times as warnings, and repeatedly pulled up blockade
lines at Hennessy Road to stop the public from moving forward; Causeway bay looked like
under martial law. However, the citizens marched fluidly, turning into sidestreets, and
then continued after the blockades. They marched towards the direction of Central,
undaunted by the threat of 6,000 riot police deployed.
