Hong Kong’s June 4 Museum Now Online, Two Months After Forced Closure

August 04, 2021

Hong Kong’s June 4 Museum, a museum dedicated to preserving the memory of China’s 1989 Tiananmen crackdown, was forced to close its physical exhibits on June 2, just two days ahead of the anniversary of Beijing’s 1989 crackdown on pro-democracy protests. However, two months after its closure, the June 4Museum has reappeared in virtual form. 

The June 4th Museum of Memory and Human Rights opened online on Wednesday, after collecting 1.68 million Hong Kong dollars ($216,400) from 1,186 individual donors through crowdfunding in a rare step forward for the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China. Because the Alliance has been under intense pressure from the authorities in recent months, an independent group led by Chang Ping has handled the design and management of the online museum. Chang is a Chinese journalist who covered the 1989 events and now resides in Germany, though the servers used to host the site are kept secret for security reasons.
