和平香港行动对APEC峰会的呼吁


 
亚太经合会(APEC)将在北京召开,和平香港行动呼吁与会的各国领导人在APEC峰会的议程上增加香港议题,探讨、鼓励并协助中国政府寻找和平解决香港政争危机的双赢方案,使香港在民主化的进程上迈出实质的一步。

 
这些作为是符合APEC会议的基本精神的。APEC虽是以经济为主题的亚太经合组织会议,但并不回避重大的政治问题。上海APEC会议曾通过反恐决议,此次北京会议也安排了反腐议程。APEC也正在考虑筹建亚太自由贸易区,并绘制《APEC互通互联蓝图》,这对会员国的民主体制提出了要求。香港居民的和平抗争对香港居民的基本权利与经济自由至关重要,中央政府若不能充分尊重和保障人权,认同和接受普适价值,香港的发展前途与经济前景都难以乐观。

   
我们进一步敦请中国政府,在APEC会议召开期间重新考虑香港民主双普选的问题,展示其参与筹建亚太自贸区的诚意,此举将为中国政府在会议期间赢得分数。反之,中国政府将进一步失信于香港人民、进一步流失国际社会的信任和尊重,并最终为此付出沉重代价。

Peace Hong Kong Initiative’s Appeal to APEC on Hong Kong


 
November 5, 2014

   
With the upcoming APEC summit in Beijing, we urge all leaders attending the meeting to add the Hong Kong issue to their agendas. This will help forward the cause of democracy.

 
These thoughts are in line with the APEC's core values, though economic themes normally dominate the summits.  The APEC summit in Shanghai reached a consensus on anti-terrorism. This time the APEC summit, which is being held in Beijing, includes anti-corruption issues. While APEC pushing forward the free trade zone in Asia-Pacific region, with blueprint for intercommunication and democratic systems are part of the requirements for qualification of its member countries.

 
We also urge the Communist regime in Beijing to reconsider its decision on Hong Kong election, which will help the regional countries to see Beijing’s good intent for a free trade zone, and thus gain good support for its own legitimacy. Otherwise, the Chinese government will pay a huge price for its actions in Hong Kong, which have caused the local residents to have no confidence in the central government and damaged its reputation internationally.
