Police ban Hong Kong’s vigil for Tiananmen Square

Hong Kong police rejected an application Monday for an annual candlelight vigil marking the anniversary this week of the 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown. This is the first time the gathering has been halted in three decades. The candlelight vigil, planned for Jun 4, usually attracts huge crowds and is the only place on Chinese soil where such a major commemoration of the anniversary is allowed.

No surprise here. China doesn't want anyone talking about Tiananmen Square. I say do it anyway and force the Chinese to react, drawing more attention to the event.
