On 30 July, 2007, Hong Kong government has issued an eviction order on Queen's Pier activists who have camped at the pier for three months to leave the structure by 31 July, 2007 midnight . Lands Department officials put up notices around the pier telling the protesters that their occupation of the pier was unauthorised. They also warned the activists that they could be prosecuted if they didn't obey.
