悼念劉曉波燭光遊行 (Candlelight March for Mr. Liu Xiaobo)

法政匯思於2017年7月16日出席了支聯會發起的悼念劉曉波燭光遊行。遊行期間一度落起大雨,市民仍冒雨抵達中聯辦,將燭光和鮮花放於中聯辦門外,並向劉曉波的相片鞠躬。 Progressive Lawyers Group attended the candlelight march on 16 July 2017 in commemoration of the late Mr. Liu Xiaobo.  The march ended at the China Liaison Office where marchers paid their respect to Mr. Liu by lighting candles and presenting flowers outside the China Liaison Office.

【法政巴絲】山雨已來風滿樓
