醫管局6.12早上要求急症室記錄「立會外集會」傷者身份 醫護工會:做法極不尋常

法政匯思召集人、大律師李安然指出,《個人資料(私隱)條例》第58條有豁免條款訂明,如果有防止或偵測罪行,以及拘捕、檢控或拘留犯罪者等目的,便可獲豁免。換言之,醫管局有機會因應執法部門要求,轉交相關求醫者的資料。李安然表示,傷者身份與醫療無關,質疑醫管局是否有必要收集該些資料,尤其今次安排針對一個指定日子的活動,令人懷疑醫管集收集資料背後的目的。

Hong Kong’s identity as a city of rights and freedom is under threat – so we protest

Again, as in 2014, today’s protesters were primarily youths, clad in black t-shirts and chanting “Cit Wui!” (“Withdraw!”). Drawing on their experience from the Umbrella Movement, protesters quickly equipped themselves with protective gear – face masks, goggles, hard-hats – in anticipation of police batons, capsicum spray, or even tear gas and rubber bullets. Police formed three-deep defensive lines equipped with riot shields, truncheons and guns. By mid-morning, protester supply stations – well-stocked with water, foodstuffs, first-aid supplies and other necessities – were already springing up.
