On 100th Day of Hunger Strike (6 October), CIC Concern Group will lit mid-autumn festival candles at night – In solidarity with CIC strikers in ‘Black Jail’ for their reunion with families and friends
Several detainees at the Castle Peak Bay Immigration Centre (CIC) began a hunger strike to protest indefinite detention since 29 June 2020, with a peak of 28 participants. As of today, the strike reached the 98th day and 7 people were still determined to continue. On 30 September, then legislator Eddie Chu-Hoi Dick and legislator Fernando Cheung visited all 7 people. Someone saw a weight loss of over 25 kg, and 2 people still failed to obtain medicine prescribed by the hospital. CIC Concern Group and friends and families of detainees are extremely concerned about the situation inside CIC. We plan to lit up candles on 6 October to show our support and festive tidings for the detainees.
During the action, CIC Concern Group members will display a massive banner at the Cafeteria Old Bay Carpark, the only spot that CIC detainees can see outside the bars. We hope that CIC detainees can receive support for the calls for freedom. Fr. Franco Mella will also conduct a 12-hour sleep-in action in support.

CIC Concern Group reinstates that it is basic human rights for anyone, regardless of their identity, nationality and ethnicity, to have access to adequate medical care and personal liberties. The group will continue to pay close attention to the development of the situations, visit hunger striking CIC detainees, and let the public know about their unfair detention situations. We urge the public to pay close attention to the conditions of ‘black jail’-like detention in the CIC, demand the Immigration Department to release indefinitely detained persons, and end various inhumane treatments in the CIC. While we still have our liberties, let’s fight for the others’ freedom and care about the basic rights that everyone deserves.
