Protesters say death was not unfortunate accidentLocal | 8 Nov 2019 4:44 pm
In a “citizen’s press conference” held by protesters, demonstrators said the death of Hong Kong University of Science and Technology undergraduate Chow Tsz-lok was no an unfortunate accident.
Chow, 22, was a second year computer science undergrad.
“In this tragic moment, we plead to all to bear in heart and mind who the real culprits behind [Chow] Tsz-lok’s death were. His fall was not an unfortunate accident. It was an intentional manslaughter executed by tyranny and the police force.”
On the popluar forum LIHKG, demonstrators called for people to wear all black and cover their faces in masks tomorrow to honor Chow. Others called for flash mobs around the city to remember him.
Demonstrators also called for CCTV footage to be released showing Chow’s fall, while others blamed the police and demanded revenge. “The black police must pay. Blood for blood,” one user wrote on LIHKG.
