網絡版六四博物館
Online Tiananmen Massacre Memorial Museum

Posted Posted in Donation, Facebook, Info, Newsletter

「六四紀念館」自從2012年在香港建立,面臨重重打壓與騷擾,今天國安法已經壓在港人頭上,紀念館對珍貴歷史檔案與文物的保存實難為繼。香港支聯會現發起眾籌計劃,為八九民運、「六四」屠殺死難者於互聯網建立一座永久保存的人權博物館。

Since its establishment in Hong Kong in 2012, the June 4th Museum has again and again suffered pressure and harassment. Today when National Security Law has been imposed to the people of Hong Kong, the preservation of precious historical archives and relics faces many difficulties. The museum is having a crowdfunding campaign to build a permanent museum of human rights memory for the 1989 democratic movement to be available on the Internet. (more…)

促請加拿大為香港採取行動
Urging Canada to take action on Hong Kong

Posted Posted in Facebook, Info, Newsletter

《國家安全法》自2020年7月1日生效,已經對香港人產生了深遠的破壞性影響。香港人享有的反對聲,言論自由和高度自治,被侵蝕的速度和範圍是史無前例。加拿大政府隨即取消與香港的引渡協定,其迅速果斷及起帶頭作用我們極之讚揚。
Taking effect only on July 1, 2020, the National Security Law has already created a profoundly devastating impact on the people of Hong Kong. Dissent, freedom of expression and the relative high level of autonomy enjoyed by its people, are being eroded in an unprecedented pace and scope. We applaud the leadership and our government’s immediate action in canceling the extradition treaty agreement between Canada and Hong Kong.  (more…)

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.

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

Posted Posted in Facebook, News

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.

Coalition Letter to Foreign Minister Freeland RE Uyghurs 致加拿大外交部長關於維吾爾人的公開信

Posted Posted in Facebook, News

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…)
