The usual democratic parties were out in force, "Long Hair" Leung Kwok-hung was there, as well as Albert Ho Chun-yan, the Falun Gong were trying to raise money as well as others selling T-shirts, including one with a graphic of Li Wangyang, who died of mysterious causes just before June 4 last year.
To keep the crowds interested, people on stage took turns singing songs that would be performed during the service and periodically notified people about how many football pitches were filled.
By around 7.25pm all the pitches were filled and people coming in had to go to the grassy area. Soon we were instructed to light our candles and in minutes the area was filled with glowing candles.
|This year we were quite close to the stage|
It started with a few drops, along with what looked like giant wisps of cotton, and then it started to rain. People pulled out their umbrellas and so did we.
|Many young people took part again in the vigil|

Vindicate June 4!
