Ms. Cheung, the DAB volunteer in question, was handing out flyers about the Universal Community Testing Programme near 334 Shau Kei Wan Road at around 12:30 on August 29th when a man in his 40s suddenly stabbed his umbrella at her eyes and fled. Ms. Cheung had eye, head and arm injuries and was sent to hospital for overnight observation.
Hong Kong is a free and civilized society. People can hold different political viewpoints but there is zero tolerance for anyone who violently threatens the safety of others to deprive of their freedom of expressing an opinion. We strongly condemn this barbaric assault and demand the police to bring the perpetrator to justice.
