High turnout expected for June 4 vigil
(05-29 17:45)

Organizers of the annual June 4 candlelight vigil to commemorate those who died in the Beijing massacre in 1989, say they expect a high turnout at Victoria Park on Wednesday -- the 25th anniversary of the brutal military crackdown on the pro-democracy movement.
The Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China says it will set up a sound system outside of the park, so that people can listen to the speakers even if the park itself is packed full. --RTHK
