在6月4日全世界追悼天安門事件三十一週年這天,郭文貴先生發表聲明闡述對未來「新中華聯邦」的願景。
我們支持且敬佩郭文貴先生傾全力打倒中國共產黨的決心,中國共產黨不僅壓迫中國人民,也是世界和平的一大威脅。
但是郭文貴先生以「喜馬拉雅監督機構」名義,稱要讓中國人民與台灣人民一起投票決定台灣的前途,這點我們絕對無法接受。
歷史上台灣從來不是中國固有領土的一部分。中國直到遭外來統治的最後朝代,清朝,才佔據台灣,又在《馬關條約》將台灣割讓給日本。如果竟把台灣說成是中國固有領土,以這種荒謬的標準,那麼歐洲各國地圖都要重新劃分。
二次大戰後,台灣歷經近四十年戒嚴,經過無數前輩犧牲,才爭取到今日的自由民主. 台灣主權在民的觀念深植民心。台灣的主權並不屬於中國,是屬於台灣全體住民。正如同蘇格蘭獨立自決投票,英格蘭人無權參與;加泰隆尼亞獨立自決投票,西班牙人無權投票。更進一步說,當前中國政權,亦即中華人民共和國,從未統治過台灣,正因為如此,台灣成為一個舉世敬重的民主國家,台灣的前途,只有台灣住民有權決定。
現在台澎群島居民當中,有超過83%認同自己是台灣人,僅有不到5%認同自己是中國人。我們呼籲所有支持中國民主化的倡議者,能認清台灣有別於中國,民主台灣與專制中國應有不同對待方式。中國民主化後,台灣與中國之間可以發展如同英美之間的友好関係。台灣、中國,一邊一國,這是千真萬確的基本事實,也是所有追求自由民主人士對台灣人應有的基本尊重。
願所有追求民主自由普世價值的人士堅定團結!
最後敬祝
中國民主運動早日成功!

Open letter to Himalaya Global
At the 31st anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre on June 4 in 1989, as the whole world was mourning for it, Mr. Miles Kwok (Guo Wengui) announced his vision for the New Federal State of China in the future.
We support and admire Mr. Miles Kwok's resolution and endeavor to overthrow the Communist Party of China, which not only oppresses the Chinese people and is also a great threat to the world peace.
However, Mr. Miles Kwok formulated in the name of Himalaya Global to enable the Chinese people to vote along with the Taiwanese people to determine the future of Taiwan. This is absolutely what we cannot accept.
Taiwan has never been part of the territory of the China proper in history. China had occupied Taiwan as late as in the Qing dynasty as the last foreign conquest regime but then China ceded Taiwan to Japan in the Treaty of Shimonoseki in 1895. If Taiwan could have been classified as the territory of the China proper, in this absurd standard, all the maps of European countries have to be redrawn.
After World War II, Taiwan had been ruled nearly 40 years under martial law and has attained liberty and democracy through the sacrifice of numerous forerunners. The concept that sovereignty belongs to the people has deeply rooted in Taiwan. Taiwan's sovereignty belongs to all the residents of Taiwan and does not belong to China. Similarly, the people of England have no rights to participate in the independence and self-determination of Scotland. Spaniards have no rights to vote in the independence referendum of Catalonia. Furthermore, the People's Republic of China as the regime of China has never governed Taiwan. Consequently, Taiwan has become a well respected democratic country. Only the residents of Taiwan have the right to determine the future of Taiwan.
Among the residents in Taiwan (archipelagos of Formosa and Pescadores,) more than 83% identified themselves as Taiwanese and less than 5% identified themselves as Chinese. To all the proponents for the democratization of China, we call for a clear recognition of the separation of treatment between Taiwan and China. After the democratization of China, Taiwan and China can have a friendly international relationship just like that between the United States of America and Britain. Taiwan, China on both side of Taiwan straits are two different country. It is the basic knowledge and also an undeniable fact. This constitutes the fundamental respect for Taiwanese people by all the people who pursue liberty and democracy.
Let those who share the universal values of democracy and freedom work together with solidarity.
We look forward to the early success of the democratization movement of China!
