Teachers rally about to start at Edinburgh Place to protest increasingly threatening statements by Education Bureau re punishing teachers for expressing support for protests, even if only on social media outside of work. Here, the placard w stats & info on the back.

The rally’s organized by Professional Teachers Union, the biggest pro-democracy union in but there’s also a strong presence of a new more progressive & activist teachers union.

Hundreds of teachers & their supporters gathered. Teachers have been for the most part immensely supportive of protesting secondary students who in turn in their tens of thousands have been a powerful force in the freedom struggle. That’s why the govt’s going after them.

The teachers rally is a mellow, middle-aged event but at its fringes riot police have been stop&searching young people. I asked these cops why they stopped this man. ‘Because he ran away from us.’ But I saw them approach him; he did no such thing. HK, where being young is a crime

87yo Cardinal Zen speaking at the Teachers Rally, a true human rights hero who’s stood up for justice in & China for decades. At Jan 1 march, he was soliciting donations for 612 Humanitarian Relief Fund for arrested protesters. Now the teachers. An inspiration.

Edinburgh Place now full. Several thousand gathered. Most of the latecomers appear not to be teachers. Just like at school.

The biggest applause of the evening is for this teacher, Raymond Yeung, who was almost entirely blinded in one eye when shot by police at the June 12 protest at govt HQ. He’s now planning to sue the Police Commissioner.

The Education Bureau of Hong Kong became the mouthpiece of the Communist Party of China and began to suppress the principal and teacher.
