The convenor of Hong Kong’s Civil Human Rights Front (CHRF) Mr Jimmy Sham Tsz-kit was violently attacked by five unidentified men, at 7:40 pm on 16th (Hong Kong Time), leading to his body seriously injured. Vancouver Society in Support of Democratic Movement (VSSDM) strongly condemns the assailants' violence. We urge Hong Kong Police immediately brings the assailants into justice.
As revealed, Mr Sham was attacked on Arran Lane in Mongkok by five assailants with hammers at the aforesaid time when he was on the way to a meeting in Mongkok . His head and arms were seriously injured. VSSDM believes the intent of the attack is to create a chilling effect to severely attack the freedom of assembly in Hong Kong.
CHRF is aimed at promoting democracy and human rights. They fight for full universal suffrage for the Chief Executive and the Legislative Councils.
VSSDM wishes Mr. Shum a full and speedy recovery.
Liberate Hong Kong; revolution of our times.
