On June 12, 2023, Asahi Shimbun introduced a comment by Professor Maiko Ichihara at the Graduate School of Law, Hitotsubashi University. She commented on the article “Four years after the pro-democracy demonstrations, “Hong Kong still fights”: 150 people making voices in Shibuya.” This article introduces the progress of a demonstration in Shibuya, Tokyo, calling for freedom in Hong Kong and democratization in China. Professor Ichihara also commented on the demonstration by Hong Kong pro-democracy activists that took place on the 11th, following the protest gathering for the Tiananmen Square incident held on the 4th. She noted the desperate efforts seen in continuing the movement abroad amid the suppression of democratization activities in China. Moreover, she argued that while the number of 150 participants may seem small at first glance, those raising their voices have a strong determination, considering the possibility of endangering the local families’ safety. Lastly, she emphasized the importance of continuing even small-scale activities to avoid the misconception that the people of Hong Kong have accepted or succumbed to the repression of freedom.
