IMPORTANT


a.Unlike official narrative of local media, sudden removal of those ''Tiananmen Massacre'' statues and relief from HKU, CUHK and LN/LU on December 22-24, 2021 was a reciprocal action to CCP's bureaucratic appraisal on the official work report of Carrie Lam (December 22, 2021) by the vested interests who run those universities as executives (Carrie Lam herself is a chancellor of HKU).

c. Pillar of Shame had been exhibited in HKU from December 1998 to December 22, 2021. The 'pro-establishment'-occupied supervisory / main board of HKU could have removed it anytime. Why they didn't? At least during July 30, 2021 when the first scandal broke out (the first official report at Hong Kong Police Headquarters for violation of HKNSL) and December 22, 2021. The point is the timing of removal. It tells everything.


Simply CCP bureaucratically praised their management of the city on December 22, 2021 then they gave CCP the gift in return. It means that if Xi Jinping criticised their mismanagement of the city, those statues and relief could have still been there. In other words, they think they are doing some kind of diplomacy (political game) as ''dual-power.''

e. Goddess of Democracy had been in CUHK since June 5, 2010 to December 24, 2021. Like HKU, the main board of CUHK is also heavily dominated by powerful developers, statutory body members who enjoying multiple membership among governmental organisations of this city as 'pro-establishment' camp. The unique point is that this Goddess of Democracy was not reported this year by any media before the sudden removal after HKU.

g. ''Tiananmen Massacre'' relief of LU (The Lingnan Tiananmen Massacre relief) was eliminated on December 24, 2021. Like Goddess of Democracy, it had been there since 2010. The main board members of LU are also from the most powerful real-estate oligarchs and official 'pro-establishment' camp.


People must realise here that the radicalised university students of the Occupy Central and the Anti-Extradition Law Amendment Bill Movement were under their supervisory management at HKU, CUHK and LU. The vast majority of the board members were and still are official 'pro-establishment' camp. Unfortunately, students and citizens are still treating 'school management' and 'statutory bodies' abstractedly without actually knowing who they are in detail. If they really know them, then they can realise that dualism is fatally wrong about them.

FACTS


1.香港大學校園多年來有放置國殤之柱以紀念六四事件。今日(30日)有團體到灣仔警察總部作出舉報,指校內的國殤之柱及太古橋上的煽動文字,涉違《港區國安法》。又要求港大校方立刻移除有關的違法物品。團體「香港政研會」指港大校園內長期放置涉嫌煽動反華、宣揚分裂和仇恨的所謂國殤之柱及太古橋上的煽動⽂字,多年來荼毒學生心靈、散播仇恨種子。除涉嫌違反國安法外,同時佔據校園的公共空間,亦可能威脅途經市民的⼈⾝安全。團體要求在目前缺乏港大學生會作為責任持有人的情況下,立即清除物品。(1)

2.距香港特首換屆「選戰」僅餘約3個月,特首林鄭月娥周三(22日)展開任內最後一次訪京述職,獲中國國家主席習近平和國務院總理李克強接見。外界關注見面中會否透露林鄭連任的訊號。其中,被視為其政績之一、「完善」選制後首場立法會選舉,在歷來最低投票率下完成,但習近平形容選舉「取得成功」,強調實踐證明新選舉制度「是一套好制度」。有香港時事評論員認為,習近平這番講話意義在於肯定其團隊工作多於林鄭的施政,只為便利於林鄭在餘下任期繼續執行北京指示,難以從中判斷林鄭連任機會,又指出林鄭前兩日行程神秘,值得關注。香港特首林鄭月娥在新一屆立法會選舉結果出爐後,周一(20日)隨即上京,展開4日述職行程。周三(22日)下午約4時半,林鄭在中南海瀛台獲中國國家主席習近平接見。(2)

3. 2021 年,支聯會解散,六四晚會不再,在香港大學校園內屹立 24 年的「國殤之柱」逃不過被移走的命途。港大昨晚(22日)深夜採取行動,把國殤之柱「斬件」裝箱運走。港大校委會表示,由於「國殤之柱」已日久老化,繼續容許該雕像於校園展示或觸犯本港刑事罪行條例,在參考獨立法律意見和進行風險評估後,昨日會議決定移走「國殤之柱」雕像(另見報道)。

國殤之柱創作人、丹麥雕塑家高志活(Jens Galschiøt)發聲明,指對事件非常震驚,強調國殤之柱是他的財產,可能會就損毀採取法律行動。整個移除國殤之柱行動,在昨晚深夜 11 時許執行,有工人在場封上圍板及白布。凌晨 4 時許,工人將一個長約 2 米、包裹白色物料的物體抬出,用吊臂車吊起並準備搬入貨櫃,相信是國殤之柱的一部分。清晨五時許,工作人員將國殤之柱分成兩部分,運入貨櫃內。接近早上七時,工作人員將裝有國殤之柱的貨櫃,運上貨車駛走,被送往位於石崗的香港大學嘉道理中心暫時存放。(3)

4. Tong knew the removal of the relief by Lingnan University was coming. But the Year Five student was still surprised that it took place just a day after the University of Hong Kong (HKU) removed another monument, the Pillar of Shame, overnight on Thursday. The university based in Pok Fu Lam had warned in October that they were seeking to remove the structure, while a statement on Thursday’s operation pointed to safety issues and a colonial-era law against sedition. [...] Almost at the same time, elsewhere in Hong Kong, a similar operation was underway. The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) ordered a statue known as the Goddess of Democracy – sculpted by Chen in 2010 as an imitation of the original monument erected by student protesters in Beijing – to be torn down. It came as a surprise to students, who said they were not informed or consulted by the administration beforehand. (4)

5. 在中大,昨晚曾有學生以數十張「民女」像的相片拼湊,讓「民女」重現中大,又用雞皮紙做了一幅臨時民主牆,還亮起燭光。惟事隔一晚,如此光境便即消失。《立場新聞》記者今晨 (25 日) 再到現場,發現已有中大職員用高理水槍清場,昨日鋪在地面的「民女」相片、臨時民主牆、公眾留下的鮮花和悼念蠟燭全被清理。(5)


COMMENT


The removal or exhibition of ''Tiananmen Massacre'' relief and statues has no impact on Hong Kong's own grave social issues. Those pure symbols can only be 'diplomatic' cards of the vested interests who actually run the city. Thus citizens should stay away from blue/yellow colour politics which is also run by the same 'supervisory' main board of the 'establishment'. This incident indicates that the oligarchy will recycle 'villains' in the future in order to maintain their vested interests as long as possible. Politically casted 'antagonists' always make the vested interests of this city 'protagonists' even though they themselves are just scapegoating the paid 'antagonists' for the aftermath of their own greedy profit making. In short, Hong Kong social issues are the aftermath of greedy profit making by the 'supervisory' 'pro-establishment' vested interests. Therefore citizens must directly tackle actual problems instead of blindly engaging in abstracted dualist 'political drama' produced by the same vested interests. Solving actual social issues is the only correct politics.
