Special Newsletter 2022-11 特別通訊

As a human rights organization founded in May 1989 in support of the student protests in Tiananmen Square, we have been a strong advocate for human rights and democracy in Hong Kong and China for the past thirty-three years. We have never wavered from taking principled stance against injustices and at the same time, as Canadians, we fully embrace and safeguard the universal core values of freedom, democracy, dignity and justice for all.  Whether the suppression and human rights violations from Chinese Communist Part is in Tibet, the Uyghur region, or Hong Kong, the above quote of Dr. Martin Luther King rings true.  It is in the same vein that we express our solidarity to the protest actions erupted spontaneously throughout China in the last few days.  We strongly encourage you as our friends and  supporters to attend the upcoming events against the CCP regime in solidarity.

本會為支持天安門學生運動而於 1989 年 5 月成立的人權組織。過去 33 年,我們一直大力倡導香港及中國的人權和民主,對抗不公義的原則和立場從未動搖。與此同時,作為加拿大人,我們完全擁護並捍衛世人享有自由、民主、尊嚴和正義的普世價值。中共的極權鎮壓和侵犯人權無論是在西藏、維吾爾地區還是在香港,馬丁路德金博士的警世格言都同樣響起。對最近幾天在中國各地爆發的自發抗議行動,我們當然表示聲援。本會鼓勵各界友好及支持者一同參與即將舉行的各項活動,團結一致,無分你我地對準中共政權。

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

「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

《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…)
