Who would celebrate anniversary of a crime?

On Saturday, some who fled from the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region gathered in London to "celebrate" the second "anniversary" of their violent attempt to break into the Legislative Council.

That's as ridiculous as a thief "celebrating" the second "anniversary" of trying to break into a bank. In some sense, the middle of June 2019 marked the start of chaos in Hong Kong, because over two days some "protesters" began breaking the LegCo's door with umbrellas and rods; they even totally damaged one fire-proof door. At least 21 were arrested, of which some have since been found guilty in court.

In other words, what happened that night is a crime as confirmed by the court. However, the criminals and their fellow home-haters have never realized a bit of their own wrongs, but are "proud" of the damage they had done to Hong Kong.

Just imagine someone assembling to "celebrate" the first "anniversary" of the Capitol riot on Jan 6, 2022. What the home-haters did today is no less ridiculous.

In several Western cities, their applications to hold such gatherings were approved. Some Western cities' management agencies either lack knowledge about the vicious deeds done by these home-haters in Hong Kong, or chose to support their wrongdoing for selfish political interests.

For these political interests they put the lives and health of their residents in danger. For the past 24 hours, UK has seen 7,738 new infections. Have the local police in the cities involved realized how much danger they have brought to their people?

There is only one situation in which the wrongdoer justifies memorializing a wrong, and that is in regretting it. That's why in Germany there is memorial for the Holocaust and in some US states there are memorial days marking the massacre of Native Americans by whites.

It would be welcome if the home-haters in Hong Kong rethink the damage they have done to their motherland and home city. In an interview in December 2020, Law said that "No one knows when I can go back to Hong Kong"; He could come back at any time to surrender to the police.
