溫哥華支聯會                                             2021年 4月18日

 

4月16日香港法庭把九位民主運動前輩以參加去年8月未經批准集會判入獄8~18個月,其中四位緩刑。九位中有香港民主黨創辦人李柱銘,楊森。吳藹儀是公民黨創辦人,何俊仁為深資人權律師,李卓人是香港支聯會主席,香港僅剩為民主發聲的極少數傳媒一傳媒主席黎智英等。

 

這九位民運前輩已屆垂暮之年,他們幾十年不懈地爭取自由選舉和言論,他們已是香港民主運動的標誌。繼兩月前把47位民運人士以國家安全法起訴,現又把九位民運前輩判刑,中國共產黨清楚表明要把香港民主運動握殺。透過大規模搜捕,監禁,中共要把自由,民主,人權和法治的殘餘清除。

 

溫支聯強烈譴責中共把香港民運前輩判刑的舉措。中共的行動以表明中共不會遵守中英聯合聲明,也不會聽取國際反對聲音。加拿大政府應採取實際行動,包括制裁執行國安法的中國,香港官員;要求國際奧委會把2022年冬季奧運會移離北京,及杯葛北京冬奧。

Hong Kong 416 Sentencing of Veteran Democracy Activists

Press Release

 

On April 16, 2021, the court of Hong Kong sentenced a group of veteran democracy activists to jail for participating in two protests not approved by police in August 2019.  They include Martin Lee and Yeung Sum, the founders of the Democratic Party; Margaret Ng, one of the founder of the Civic Party; Albert Ho, long time human right lawyer, Lee Cheuk-yan, the Chairman of the Hong Kong Alliance;  and Jimmy Lai, the Chairman of Next Media, one of the last two media to speak put for freedom and democracy for the Hong Kong people.

 

These veteran activists, through their life-long effort to advocate a free election and free speech, have become symbols of the Hong Kong Democracy Movement.  Their sentencing in less than two months after 47 democrats and activists were charged under the National Security Law, leaves little doubt that the Chinese Communist Party is determined to annihilate the Hong Kong Democracy Movement.  Through massive arrest and imprisonment, it plans to eradicate all elements of freedom, democracy, human rights and the rule of law.

 

VSSDM unequivocally condemn the sentencing of these democracy veterans by the CCP.  It is also unequivocally clear that the CCP will never honor the Joint Sino-British Declaration, nor will it heed the calls of the western world.  It is time for the Canadian Government to take concrete actions, such as imposing the Magnitsky sanctions on Chinese and Hong Kong officials in implementing the National Security Law.  Canada should urge the International Olympic Committee to move the 2022 Winter Olympics from Beijing, or boycott the Games altogether.
