Activists demand punishment for scornful posters on tragic deathLocal | 8 Sep 2017 3:54 pm
Activists from around 40 groups descended on the Education University today to protest over a poster that appeared to mock the death of a government official’s son.
The eldest son of Undersecretary for Education Christine Choi Yuk-lin, jumped to his death yesterday, RTHK reports.
The groups demonstrated outside a library at the university’s campus in Tai Po, denouncing whoever put up the poster which "congratulated” Choi on the 25-year-old’s death.
They said the perpetrators lacked morals for kicking Choi while she was down.
The protesters demanded that university officials punish those responsible for the poster if they are found to be students there.
Controversial university posters and banners have been in the news throughout this week after material promoting Hong Kong independence was put up at the Chinese University on Monday and then at several other institutions over the following days. Photo: RTHK
