「六四」28周年-愛國民主大遊行宣言

香港市民支援愛國民主運動聯合會
2017年5月28日

各位朋友:

今日是5月28日,星期日。28年前的5月28日,同樣是星期日;就在那天,包括香港在內眾多華人聚居的城市,都不約而同響應當時北京學生的號召,在各個城市發起「全球華人民主大遊行」。香港遊行人數是全球之冠,有150萬人參加,是香港社會運動至今最多參與人數的歷史紀錄,是當時支援八九民運重要一役,亦是香港人創造出來的驕傲里程碑。

過去28年歷史長河發展過程中,無論面對順境逆境、迎戰多少打壓、面對怎樣的質疑與試探,我們都堅定不移、不間斷的每年「六四」前的星期日舉行大遊行,堅持踏出我們的民主路。這份堅持,植根於每一個人的心中,是公義和良知的具體表現,是任何打壓、質疑、試探均不能消滅的!

各位,過往28年我們堅持走的民主路,絕對不平坦,而是荊棘滿途、崎嶇曲折、難關重重的,亦是一頁又一頁「打壓與反打壓」的歷史。簡單回顧一下:

「八九」後的第7年,香港人面對「九七」將臨,當時中港政治形勢極為惡劣,北京不理《基本法》直通車規定而「另起爐灶」成立「臨時立法會」,令「九七過渡」時眾多民主派議員被「趕落車」,當時不少人亦擔心被指為「顛覆組織」的支聯會會否在「九七」後被取締;當時支聯會的應對,一方面堅持「跨越九七」,亦呼籲香港人做好準備,就算支聯會被取締,有良知的香港人也可以自行在「六四」當日到維園點起燭光,向極權宣戰。

「八九」第二個7年, 2003年,香港人面對更大的政治考驗,就是《基本法》23條立法殺到埋身;當年,正因為香港人不認命,「七一」大遊行出現意想不到超過50萬人參與,震驚中外,亦促使特區政府最終撤回《基本法》23條立法。

「八九」後的第三個7年,2010年,支聯會面對直接的政治打壓,包括年初6名支聯會常委與義工於中聯辦外聲援劉曉波被重判11年,被控「非法集結」,同年5月支聯會於時代廣場外展示剛運抵港的新民主女神像時,遭警方和食環署強力制止,「民女」被搶;因為我們的堅持,之後取回新「民女」於當年「六四」在維園展示,其後「民女」落戶香港中文大學。

今年,是「八九」後的第四個7年,香港人面對的,就是「回歸二十年」的日子。內地打壓維權人士力度之大前所未有,香港方面更因2014年人大「831」否決港人「真普選」訴求,觸發「佔領運動」。梁振英五年施政「天怒人怨」、銅鑼灣書店事件等,政治低氣壓愈來愈嚴峻。面對持續的打壓和政治倒退,我們這些「無權者」可以做的,就是勇敢地在這民主道路上繼續走下去!

最後,謹再次以華叔過往勸勉我們的一句話作結:「堅持到底,就是勝利!」

平反六四!結束專政!

釋放民運人士!平反八九民運!追究屠城責任!結束一黨專政!建設民主中國!

六四晚,維園見!

Declaration of March for the 28th Anniversary of ‘June 4th’

Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements of China, 28 May 2017

Ladies and Gentlemen,

Today is Sunday, May 28th. 28 years ago, May 28th was also a Sunday. On that day, various cities where many Chinese lived, including Hong Kong, invariably responded to the call of Beijing students at that time to launch the ‘global Chinese democracy march’ in their cities. 1.5 million Hong Kong people joined the march which was the highest number in the world. It is the historical record of the largest number of people participating in Hong Kong’s social movements so far. The support was important to the 1989 democracy movement, and a milestone achieved by Hong Kong people.

In the course of the development of the past 28 years, we unwaveringly and uninterruptedly marched on every Sunday before ‘June 4th’, regardless of good or bad times, how much pressure, challenge or test we faced. We insist on taking these steps for democracy. This insistence, rooted in the hearts of everyone, is the reflection of our righteousness and conscience. This cannot be eliminated by any pressure, question or test!

Ladies and gentlemen, the democratic path we insisted on in the past 28 years was absolutely not smooth but full of obstacles, twists, turns and difficulties. Let’s briefly review this history of ‘suppression and anti-suppression’.

The seventh year after 1989, Hong Kong people faced the coming of ‘1997’. At that time, the political situation between Hong Kong and China was extremely bad. Beijing ignored the ‘through train’ provisions of the Basic Law and set up the Provisional Legislative Council from scratch. Many democratic councillors were thus ‘driven off’ during the ‘1997 transition’. Also, many people were worried whether the Alliance would be banned for being a ‘subversive organization’ after 1997. The Alliance responded by insisting the work ‘beyond 1997’, calling on Hong Kong people to be prepared if the Alliance would be banned, and that every Hong Kong person with righteousness would lit a candle on one’s own in Victoria Park every June 4th to fight against totalitarianism.

In 2003, the 2nd seven-year after 1989, Hong Kong people faced a greater political challenge, Basic Law Article 23. In that year, as the people of Hong Kong did not accept their fate, surprisingly more than half a million people joined the ‘July 1st’ march and shocked the world. Thus the SAR Government finally withdrew the bill for Basic Law Article 23.

In the third seven-year after 1989, the Alliance faced direct political repression in 2010. In the beginning of the year, six executive committee members and volunteers of the Alliance were charged for ‘illegal assembly’ outside the Liaison Office as they showed solidarity to Liu Xiaobo for his 11-year sentence. At the end of May the same year, a new statue of the goddess of democracy just arrived Hong Kong and was shown outside Times Square by the Alliance. The police and the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department forcefully stopped us and confiscated the statue. Because of our insistence, the new statue was retrieved and shown in the Victoria Park during June 4th Candlelight Vigil that year, then settled in the Chinese University of Hong Kong till now.

This year is the fourth seven-year after 1989. Hong Kong people are facing the 20th year after the handover. The mainland unprecedentedly suppress rights activists. In Hong Kong, the National People’s Congress ‘831 decision’ in 2014 vetoed the demand of ‘universal suffrage’ of Hong Kong people and triggered the ‘occupation movement’. CY Leung’s five years of governance outraged everyone. Causeway Bay Books incident occurred etc. The political depression is getting worse. In the face of continued suppression and political retrogression, we the ‘powerless’ should continue taking the courageous steps of democracy!

Finally, as what Mr Szeto Wah exhorted us in the past, ‘Insist to the end. That is victory!’

Vindicate June 4th! End dictatorial rule!

Release the dissidents! Rehabilitate the 1989 pro-democracy movement! Demand accountability of the June 4th massacre! End one-party dictatorship! Build a democratic China!

In the evening of June 4th, see you in Victoria Park!
