Firefighters were called yet again to a hilltop in Kowloon this morning after receiving a report that another gigantic yellow banner had been unfurled on a prominent rock face.
The 15-by-three-meter banner, which reads “Carrie Lam, Resign!,” was spotted on Devil’s Peak in Yau Tong at around 6am.
Firefighters arrived at the scene shortly afterwards, and removed the signage just before 10am, Apple Daily reported.
It’s not clear who was responsible for the banner, but pro-democracy party the League of Social Democrats, which has claimed responsibility for similar banners in the past, reshared an Apple Daily story about the banner.
The banner’s appearance comes days before Hongkongers are set to take to the streets again on Sunday to protest a controversial extradition bill that, if passed, would allow authorities to extradite criminal suspects to mainland China for the first time since the handover.
Tens of thousands of people took to the streets in April to protest the the almost-universally unpopular bill, with organizers estimating that some 130,000 people joined the demonstration.
Just yesterday, a similar banner urging people not to forget the Tiananmen Square Massacre was unfurled on Beacon Hill, also in Kowloon, as Hongkongers prepared to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the bloody crackdown.
