Global Rally Against Extradition to China 全球反送中遊行

Posted Posted in Event, Facebook, Info

Canada, UK, USA, EU, Germany, Australia and many countries have officially expressed their opposition to the bill proposed in Hong Kong on extradition arrangement with China. Some countries went so far as to request Hong Kong government to withdraw the bill. 67 international organizations, TADC as one of them, has issued a joint statement to Ms Carrie Lam, Chief Executive of Hong Kong, to express our deep concerns on the bill due to China’s poor records on human rights and on rule of law. The Global Rally Against Extradition to China on Sunday June 9th will be held in 27 cities of 10 countries in addition to Hong Kong (as of this upload), including Calgary, Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver in Canada. For information on the rally in each city, please refer to the listing in this document and Facebook page Global Solidarity with Hong Kong.

加拿大、英國、美國、歐盟、德國、澳洲及多個國家,已經向香港政府發出對逃犯條例草案的反對聲明,有些國家甚至要求港府徹回草案。67個包括本會在內的國際組織向香港特首林鄭月娥女仕發出聯合聲明,因應中國極其低劣的人權法治紀錄而對此草案的極度關注。六月九日星期日的全球反送中遊行將在香港以外十個國家的卄七個城市舉行(至本文上載時),包括加拿大的卡加里、渥太華、多倫多及温哥華。各城市遊行詳情均列在此檔案之中全球集氣反送中臉書專頁。

To Prime Minister Trudeau RE Uygurs in Xinjiang, China 致加拿大總理關於中國新彊維吾人公開信

Stand Up for human rights in Xinjiang and take actions to protect Canadians

Dear Prime Minister:

On behalf of Toronto Association for Democracy in China, we write to raise our deep concerns about the massive human rights abuse in Xinjiang (East Turkistan), China.

We are heartened when Canada became the first state to acknowledge China’s use of  ‘re-education’ camps to hold hundreds of thousands of Uyghurs. However, we are deeply disappointed that our government has not taken concrete actions to stand up for the Uyghurs in Xinjiang, and to protect Uyghur Canadians from the harassment in Canada by the Chinese government.

Dear Minister Freeland,

I write to you on behalf of the members of the Canadian Coalition on Human Rights in China listed below with an urgent request. As you know, China’s human rights record will be in the global spotlight tomorrow when the country is examined under the UN Human Rights Council’s Universal Periodic review process for the first time since 2013. As always, there are many pressing human rights concerns that merit attention as states present their questions and recommendations for reform to China. We have welcomed the opportunity to engage with your officials, as part of our annual consultation meeting and through written submissions, as to issues we hope Canada will highlight. (more…)

『八九六四』 一場從未結束的屠殺

「六四」29周年臨近,為之悼念,似乎是理所當然的事。然而,此時此刻,仍有人因悼念「六四」而身陷牢獄。
2016年,四川有四位朋友符海陸、張雋勇、羅富譽和陳兵製作了一款白酒,為其取名「銘記八酒六四」。他們於5月底透過互聯網銷售這枝自家製白酒,定價每兩瓶89.64元人民幣。就在他們發布了賣酒廣告兩天後,符海陸就在街頭被公案抓走。其後一個月間,為「銘記」做瓶身標貼和宣傳海報設計的羅富譽,有份出資和宣傳的張雋勇,以及一齊採購酒瓶等原材料的陳兵均先後被捕。他們的罪名,是「煽動顛覆國家」。 (more…)
