Alpais Lam Wai-sze (林慧思), an award-wining teacher from Pui Ling School of the Precious Blood, has became the target of pro-Beijing camp after shouting obscenity in an argument with police over the unfair treatment of Falun Gong. Two pro-Beijing organisations, Parent’s Association of Hong Kong (香港家長聯會) and Hong Kong actions (香港行動), held a rally condemning Lam at Mong Kok Sai Yeung Choi Street on August 4th.
Localism camp urged netizens to crash the rally while pan-democrats turned a blind eye to it. Right before the announcement of the rally on July 31st, banners urging Lam’s dismissal were hung on street railings near her school, and funeral wreaths in her names were placed nearby. The Cultural Revolution style harassment pushed more netizens to crash the rally.
