The journey to Freedom Park on Day 11

May 2nd

Lighter police presence as I lead a small procession of supporters to the put flowers on the barbed wires and electrified barricades that continue to seal off #freedompark.

A small crowd of determined supporters were present starting early morning.

My message ” I strongly condemn the heavy use of hired security guards to continuously and randomly attack peaceful protesters and journalists at Freedom Park. Any use of force must be avoided and peaceful demonstrations must be secured to safeguard freedom of expression and assembly. Furthermore, I condemn the failure of the local authorities in providing medical care to the wounded. The attack on our venerable monks is totally unacceptable.”
