元朗「悼念李鵬」不受《公安條例》規管?大律師:須限於宗教 沒有其他共同目的

警方昨日就7月27日的元朗遊行發出「禁止公眾集會及反對公眾遊行通知」。不反對通知書申請人鍾健平表明,屆時將會獨自一人在原定遊行時間、沿著遊行路線而行,僅作「個人活動」而非「遊行」,他目前亦不會邀請其他人加入。然而群情洶湧,網民紛紛提出「李鵬元朗悼念會」、「元朗讚美上帝」、「捉小精靈」等活動,圖以不同名目去元朗。 眾新聞訪問法政匯思成員、大律師何旳匡,以及大律師黃宇逸,由他們分析市民周六到元朗參與不同活動所涉及的法律風險。

Organiser vows to push ahead with Yuen Long march after Hong Kong police refuse permission, citing safety concerns

The organiser of a potentially chaotic protest march planned for Saturday in Hong Kong’s northern town of Yuen Long has vowed to push on even though it would be an illegal assembly after police banned the gathering, citing a serious risk of violence. In a rare move, police on Thursday issued a letter of objection to the march, saying it was to ensure public order and safety, and to protect the rights and freedoms of others who would be affected, even as the organiser and scores of defiant citizens promised to go ahead regardless of the legal consequences.
