Protestors participating in unauthorised assembly in Victoria Park
Attention duty announcers, radio and TV stations:
Please broadcast the following message as soon as possible and repeat it at suitable intervals:
     An application for a public event to be held in Victoria Park, Causeway Bay in the afternoon today (November 2) was objected by Police earlier on. The Appeal Board on Public Meetings and Processions also voted down the appeal. Disregarding the rulings, some protestors have been gathering in Victoria Park since 2pm today. 
     Police have repeatedly warned the crowd at the scene that they are committing the offence of “Participating in an unauthorised assembly”. Some protestors are masked and are violating the Prohibition on Face Covering Regulation. 
     Police warn all protestors to leave immediately and stop occupying the road. Police also appeal to the public not to participate in the public meeting. Dispersal and arrest action will be taken as appropriate.
