Don't Want to Remember Dare Not Forget 不想回憶未敢忘記號
Don't Want To Remember, Dare Not Forget 不想回憶 未敢忘記號
In 1989, Mainland Chinese students demonstrated to voice out objection against the corrupted government and demanded for political reform, they ended up massacred by the Chinese Communist Party. At the annual memorial service in Hong Kong, the repeating slogan is ‘Don’t want to remember, dare not forget’. I decided to commemorate the dead by joining the ‘Cycling to the Square’ co-organized by Woofa Ten. Dressing up like a Mainland Chinese students in the 80’s, riding on an antique bicycle, I portrayed the spirit from 1989. I visited several important sites relating to the June 4th incident. I continued this ritual for four years. Along with other riders, we gave out flowers to commemorate the dead and discussed the meaning of democracy. The night ends at the Victoria Park, a massive Tiananmen Vigil rally attended by 180,000 people.
