海外台灣人社團針對香港現況聲明全文:

【中文】

針對香港目前的情況,下列海外人台灣組織發表以下聯合聲明:

我們宣示我們與正在爭取維護自由的香港人民團結站在一起。這整個夏天,勇敢的香港人民在街頭向中國和世界宣告自由和民主是攸關生死的重要價值觀。儘管有可能得面對如六四天安門屠殺同樣的命運,抗爭的群眾仍不退縮。數百萬的香港人現身示威,明確宣示他們對民主和自由的熱愛。值得信奉民主自由的人民、國家的支持。

在此網際網路的世界,中國利用Youtube、推特和臉書帳號散佈假消息,將抗議者指為恐怖份子並將他們的抗爭指為暴亂。擁有致命武器的中國人民解放軍屯駐在邊境,威脅香港。而在香港境內的解放軍特務也準備好隨時待命行動。警方開始大肆逮捕群眾領袖。接二連三不斷地的抗爭活動已經對中國的「一國兩制」響起了喪鐘。

下列社團的成員是散居在世界各地的台灣人。台灣是個長期生活在中國威脅陰影下的民主國家。我們嚴厲拒絕中國試圖強加給台灣的「一國兩制」。我們懷著同情和理解,表達我們對香港人反對中國暴政的最強烈支持。

For Immediate Release

Date: September 3, 2019

RE: Statement on the Situation in Hong Kong

In light of the current situation in Hong Kong, the undersigned Overseas Taiwanese Organizations jointly issue the following statement:

We declare our solidarity with the people of Hong Kong who are rallying to protect their freedoms. Throughout the summer, these brave people have taken to the streets to proclaim to China and the world that freedom and democracy are critical, life-or-death values. Despite a possible Tiananmen Square-style fate, the protests persist unabated. Hongkongers, who have turned out in the millions to demonstrate their love for freedom and democracy, deserve the praise and support of all peace-loving people and nations.

In the cybersphere, China has been using YouTube, Twitter and Facebook accounts to spread false narratives, and to paint protesters as terrorists and their rallies as riots. China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA), with lethal weaponry, threatens at the border while soldiers of the PLA garrison in Hong Kong prepare to be deployed at a moment’s notice. Mass arrests of pro-democracy leaders have now begun. The protracted pro、tests in Hong Kong sound the death knell for China’s “one country two systems” construct.

The undersigned are members of the diaspora of Taiwan, a neighboring democratic nation that has long lived under the shadow of similar threats by China. We reject the “one country two systems” construct China is attempting to impose on Taiwan. With empathy and understanding, we voice our strongest support for the people of Hong Kong in their rise against Chinese tyranny.
