2019區議會選舉與後社運年代

2019區議會選舉與後社運年代

撰文:彰壹棯

日期:2022年12月23日


2019區議會選舉大勝,令黃營士氣大增。但有一點要留意,雖然取得超過八成半議席,但實際得票只有大概六四比(正確講係未夠六成,57.4%),泛黃嘅人從來無大家想像中咁多。要記住,2019已經係社會運動同街頭運動最高峰嘅時候,實際該時較多中立/搖擺票去左泛黃光譜候選人身上。

而2019區議會選舉大勝,因超高投票率(71.23%,以前只有不足六成)及單議席單票制之缺陷令建制出現配票失敗出現嘅結果,實際係社會上並唔係一片黃海,民主派大致只比建制派多出44萬張選票,依家多左人移民外流下,香港內仲堅持努力中嘅同路人只會更辛苦。

覺得係香港人善忘所以多左人幫襯藍店?事實並非如此,愚見有四 :

一. 大部分人非政治狂熱者,未必會立場行先,大部分時間以方便/價錢/相同價錢下品質較佳優先

二. 黃圈紛爭被媒體不斷放大,失去其支持者

三. 黃店以立場先行,並未做到與其價錢相應之質素

四. 喺區選結果已經見到,至少有四成半人比較親建制

咁點解身邊嘅朋友同社交媒體絕大部份人都係黃?

事實上,大家社交媒體或朋友圈裡面大部分都係同立場嘅人,所以好自然會誤以為社會上都係一片黃海,但並唔係咁嘅一回事。令大家有係絕對大多數嘅錯覺係社交媒體演算法帶來嘅同溫層效應,現況絕對不容樂觀。

咁你有咩高見?

後社運年代,就算做緊嘅嘢唔同,唔好一嚟就互相講對方不事。依然努力緊嘅各位更應互相嘗試理解大家嘅困難同處境,互相體諒。希望大家可以行多步,無論任何事都好,保持虛心。先要做好質素,中間市場非常重要,唔需要再塘水滾塘魚。進一步甚至做到賺藍養黃(現實上依家喺資本嚟講「黃圈」絕對係下風,個人認為唔需要跪著賺係必要)先係權宜之計。

謝謝

A Richmond resident and former editor of a Chinese-language newspaper has been placed on the Hong Kong Security Bureau’s (HKSB) wanted list earlier this month.

Victor Ho was one of three activists placed on the list with the HKSB announcing in a news release that it “severely condemns” them for forming a “Hong Kong Parliament” overseas and subversion under the National Security Law.

The National Security Law was imposed on Hong Kong by Beijing in response to pro-democracy protests in 2019.

According to the Chinese government, people found to have fallen foul of the law “shall be sentenced to life imprisonment or fixed-term imprisonment” for a determined number of years.

HKSB made the announcement shortly after Ho and other activists joined a news conference in Toronto on July 27 to reveal the establishment of a committee for a Hong Kong “parliament in exile” that would go against Beijing’s crackdown on political freedom.

“On the basis of Article 37 of the National Security Law, Police shall spare no efforts in pursuing the cases in accordance with the law in order to bring the offenders to justice,” reads the HKSB news release.

“The Security Bureau appeals to the public to disassociate themselves from individuals contravening the Hong Kong National Security Law, and the illegal activities those individuals organized, so as to avoid bearing any unnecessary legal risks.”

However, Ho told the Richmond News that it was a surprise to find out he was wanted by the HKSB, although he is not too worried and actually wants to “thank” the security bureau for it.

“I never received any notifications directly by the Hong Kong government, but for them to put my name on that list means people in Hong Kong and internationally will know what we are doing,” said Ho.

He added that, because the city’s government has tight control of the media, it is difficult for many local publications to write anything related to democracy without punishment.

“The government basically volunteered themselves to announce that we are fighting for political democracy.”

Meanwhile, a group of Canadians with Hong Kong ties have written an open letter to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Foreign Affairs Minister Melanie Joly to show their discontent regarding the Hong Kong government’s actions.

“It is appalling that a Canadian citizen exercising his freedom of expression and freedom of association in Canada, with his rights and freedom entrusted by our constitution, could be charged and wanted by a foreign government,” reads the letter.

Being on Hong Kong’s wanted list has “serious and unpredictable implications” for Ho and his family members, according to the aforementioned group’s spokespersons Bill Chu and Thekla Lit.

“While Victor is relatively safe in Canada, we are concerned for his safety were he to travel to countries that have extradition agreements with Hong Kong and China,” they said.

Canada suspended its extradition agreement with Hong Kong shortly after the National Security Law was put in place, which is a reassurance for the group.

However, members of the group find the incident alarming that Canadian citizens could land themselves on the Hong Kong government’s wanted list for exercising their freedom of expression.

Chu and Lit added that the “incident is a serious violation of democratic rights here in Canada, as others following Victor may similarly face persecution from the Hong Kong and Chinese government(s) for lawful expressions and actions in Canada.”

HKPEOC’s response to the declaration by the Hong Kong Security Bureau

HKPEOC’s response to the declaration by the Hong Kong Security Bureau

The Hong Kong Government has severely condemned the “Hong Kong Parliament” (HKP) today. The government claims Elmer Yuen (Yuan Gong Yi), Leung Mau Victor Ho, and Baggio Leung Chung Hang formed a committee to establish a “Hong Kong Parliament” with overseas activists and are suspected of contravening the offence of subversion under Article 22 of the National Security Law.

The Hong Kong Parliament Electoral Organizing Committee’s response is as follows:

***********************

We believe in popular sovereignty – the authority of a state and its government or law should be the expression of the general public’s will. All citizens have the right to contribute personally, or through their representatives, to its formation.

The Hong Kong Government’s declaration that three of the HKP’s electoral organizing committee members, who allegedly committed the offence as stated above, are now on a wanted list is unjustifiable. No Hongkongers will consent to this hilarious move of the Hong Kong Government. We organize the Hong Kong Parliament with genuine representativeness who can truly represent Hongkongers.

It is our honor that we are wanted by this unjust and illegitimate regime.

We shall never back down to dictatorship. To liberate Hong Kong, we will work in full gear to establish a Hong Kong Parliament that can truly reflect the will of the Hongkongers.

Ends/Wednesday, August 3, 2022

Issued at HKT 23:45 Kong Parliament Electoral Organizing Committee


Statement of Elmer Yuen (Yuan Gong Yi)

On the Arrest Warrants Issued by the Hong Kong Security Bureau

On August 3, 2022, the Hong Kong Security Bureau, on behalf of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, issued warrants for the arrest of Mr. Victor Ho, Mr. Baggio Leung, and me. The government accused us of violating the “National Security Law” by engaging in “actions subverting state power”.

Our so-called “crime” is to establish a committee to prepare for an election of a new Hong Kong Parliament. Unlike the current system in Hong Kong, this election, which is scheduled for 2023, will be based on the principle of universal suffrage. We hope that an elected parliament will legitimately represent the voices and the interests of the Hong Kong people. Everything we have done so far falls squarely within the framework of modern democracy.

In 1960, the United Nations granted all peoples of colonies to gain their independence by referendum. The Chinese government, however, denied such referendum and took away the sovereignty of Hong Kong in 1997. Since then, Beijing has repeatedly violated its promise of “One Country, two systems,” unlawfully and violently depriving the people of Hong Kong freedoms, such as the freedom of speech, assembly, and association. It has turned Hong Kong from a civil society with an English legal system into a typical communist tyranny. It has destroyed economic prosperity and further limited political openness in Hong Kong. On June 30, 2020, the Chinese People’s Congress passed the Hong Kong National Security Law. Since then, Beijing has governed Hong Kong with political terror. Many critics of the Chinese Communist Party have been arrested and given long sentences in prison. All independent media organizations have been forced to close. Hong Kong has descended into darkness. Peoples of the world have lost faith in what was once the “Pearl of the Orient”.

A group of Hongkongers dedicated to freedom and democracy in Hong Kong determined to establish an institution, through universal suffrage, to give the people of Hong Kong a voice. I am part of the effort. In this new parliament, different voices can speak out. Such an institution is the foundation of any modern democratic society. The fact that the current Beijing-appointed government demands our arrest shows its lack of confidence in its own legitimacy. It relies completely on violence to suppress political challenge.

I will not back down. Our quest for freedom will continue. Tyranny will be defeated eventually.

God bless Hong Kong.


Statement of Leung Mau Victor Ho

On the Arrest Warrants Issued by the Hong Kong Security Bureau

Our goal is simple: through organizing a Hong Kong parliamentary election, we will restore the unalienable right of suffrage to the Hong Kong people.

The Hong Kong Legislative Council is totally controlled by the Chinese Communist Party at this point. The regime denied the right of the people to directly elect all members of the Council in a fair, just, and fear-free election. Such an election, based on the principle of one-person-one-vote, is the election standard of the international community.

On August 3, the Hong Kong government issued arrest warrants for three members of the Electoral Organizing Committee. I am one of the three. This shows how afraid the current Hong Kong government is of a true democratic election, and thus tries to use violence to suppress the right of suffrage of the Hong Kong people.

The road to the restoration of a prosperous and free Hong Kong must go through universal suffrage. Free election is the only means to reflect the true will of the people.

Article 68 of the Basic Law of Hong Kong set the goal of direct popular election of all members of the Legislative Council. Why is pursuing such a goal now a crime?

The arrest warrants will wake up more Hongkongers. They will realize that without true democracy, Hong Kong has no future.


Statement of Baggio Leung Chung Hang

On the Arrest Warrants Issued by the Hong Kong Security Bureau

On August 3, the Hong Kong Security Bureau issued an arrest warrant against Mr. Elmer Yuen, Mr. Victor Ho, and me, accusing us of “subversion of state power”.

The Beijing-appointed Hong Kong government charges us for preparing a free election of a Hong Kong Parliament. Such an election will provide the Hong Kong people at home and abroad an opportunity to elect an institution that truly represents the people of Hong Kong.

It is more accurate to say that we, the accused, are all Hongkongers. We love Hong Kong. In the eyes of the current regime, it is a crime. Here are the true crimes which deprived the political rights of the Hong Kong people:

  • In 2014, the Chinese government announced the so-called “831 Decision,” officially rescinding its commitment to universal suffrage in Hong Kong.
  • In 2016, the Hong Kong government began the practice of arbitrarily disqualifying candidates and democratically elected members.
  • In 2020, the Beijing government enacted the Hong Kong National Security Law, taking away the remaining freedom of assembly and expression for Hongkongers.

I ran for election to the Legislative Council in 2016 and became a member of the Legislative Council. Subsequently, I was disqualified by the regime for swearing allegiance to Hongkongers, instead of Beijing. As a democratically elected representative, it is my first and foremost responsibility to serve the well-being of the Hong Kong people.

That is why I decided to join the Preparatory Committee of the Hong Kong Parliament, in the hopes of building a democratic platform for Hong Kong people to speak freely against the threat of white terror.

How ironic and nonsensical it is that we want to form a Hong Kong parliament that truly represents the people of Hong Kong but are now wanted and threatened by a “government” without the authorization of the people.

I will not bow to dictatorship. I will make every effort to participate in the preparation of a freely- elected Hong Kong Parliament that will give the people their voices.

【國安時代】海外港人籌組議會 港保安局指違《國安法》下通緝令

【國安時代】海外港人籌組議會 港保安局指違《國安法》下通緝令

香港保安局周三(3日)發聲明嚴厲譴責,指袁弓夷、何良懋、梁頌恆涉嫌違反《港區國安法》第22條「顛覆國家政權」罪。

一批海外港人上周三(27日)在加拿大多倫多宣布成立「香港議會選舉籌備委員會」,事隔一星期,香港保安局周三(3日)指他們涉嫌違反《港區國安法》而被通緝。「香港議會」的發起人袁弓夷向本台表示,早就收過來自北京國安的警告,反映建立「香港議會」正中北京的要害,而「香港議會」回應指,被非法不義的政權通緝是榮幸,強調不會向獨裁者低頭,會繼續籌備「香港議會」。

香港保安局周三(3日)發新聞稿表示,「嚴厲譴責袁弓夷、何良懋及梁頌恆等人在海外籌組所謂『香港議會』,涉嫌違反《香港國安法》第22條『顛覆國家政權』罪」,保安局又指,警方會根據《香港國安法》第37條依法追究,將上述人士緝捕歸案,又呼籲市民要與任何違反《香港國安法》的人士及他們組織的非法活動劃清界線,以免承擔不必要的法律風險。

袁弓夷向本台表示,今次被通緝反而有助澄清一些被指「中共白手套」的謠言,又透露自己早就收過來自北京國安的警告,所以一早有心理準備。

袁弓夷說:現在他們最大的問題,整個中國,不單只是香港,都是沒有人代表,沒有人民代表,所以整個政府的合法性、代表性是不存在的,每次提起要公投、要投票, 就會捉到他痛處。他事先都有警告過我, 但我沒有理會,不是香港,是北京那邊的國安,國家安全(單位)有幾個途徑曾經警告過我,指我還有家人在香港。(那麼香港的家人擔心嗎?現在有可能連累你家人)擔心都沒有用,我都出走那麼久,說了那麼多話,嚴重過香港議會的事講得更多。

袁弓夷媳婦、新民黨議員容海恩馬上與家翁劃清界線,同日在Facebook發文批評,「梁頌恆、袁弓夷及何良懋等人在海外籌組所謂的『香港議會』,毫無疑問是一個有計劃、不顧一切後果、全心惡意顛覆特區政府職能以及破壞特區政府的組織」,她又表明全力支持警方打擊所有違法活動,以儆效尤。

「香港議會」在社媒上回應表示,被這個非法不義的政權通緝是其榮幸,又認為法治或法律的合法性是建立在人民同意的基礎上,所以「不論是所謂的《國安法》,或是引用《國安法》通緝香港議會籌備委員會委員的所謂『香港政府』,卻是完全沒有香港人的授權,遑論同意。我們籌組一個能真正代表香港人的香港議會,卻被一個沒有人民授權的「政府」通緝,只會令世界覺得無稽和可笑」,籌委會又表明不會向獨裁者低頭,並會繼續籌備香港議會。

香港人袁弓夷、何良懋、梁頌恆等人上周三(27日)在加拿大多倫多,宣布成立「香港議會」選舉籌備委員會,正式啟動籌組「香港議會」的選舉工作,並希望明年稍後舉行一場全球港人均可參與的普選,選出一群在國際上代表香港人發聲的香港議會成員。

袁弓夷為時事評論員袁彌昌及人民力量前主席袁彌明之父,同時為新民黨議員容海恩的家翁,袁弓夷於「反送中運動」開始活躍評論時政,其後離港;何良懋則曾任海外版《星島日報》,不時與袁弓夷一同主持網上論政節目。梁頌恆則曾為青年新政前召集人,2016年於立法會宣誓後被取消議員資格,「反送中運動」後流亡美國。

Overseas activists launch exiled Hong Kong ‘parliament’ plan, as gov’t says security law has ‘extraterritorial effect’

Overseas activists launch exiled Hong Kong ‘parliament’ plan, as gov’t says security law has ‘extraterritorial effect’

The Beijing-imposed national security law has “extraterritorial effect,” Hong Kong’s Security Bureau has said, as a group of overseas Hong Kong citizens launch a committee to establish a “Hong Kong Parliament” in exile.

The Hong Kong Parliament Electoral Organizing Committee was founded this month in Canada. It aims to hold the first election of the parliament in late 2023, the group said in a statement on Wednesday. One of the organising members is ex-lawmaker-elect Baggio Leung.

Leung was among the growing list of pro-democracy figures who left the city to go into self-exile. The 35-year-old said he sought asylum in the US in December two years ago, after the implementation of the security legislation.

“It is the Committee’s belief that only a genuine democratic election could literally [speak up] for the people Hong Kong,” a statement read.

In a response to HKFP, the Security Bureau said that while they would not “comment on individual cases, the national security law “clearly stipulated all elements of four categories of offences endangering national security.” 

“It should also be pointed out that the [security law] has extraterritorial effect. Any persons or entities who violate the [security law], regardless of their background, or where they are located, will be dealt with by the HKSAR Government in accordance with the law” the bureau said on Wednesday. The spokesperson did not elaborate on how the law would be enforced abroad.

Leung was one of the first lawmakers to be disqualified as an incoming lawmaker in Hong Kong after he was elected in 2016. He protested during the Legislative Council’s swearing-in ceremony by mispronouncing his oath, and draped himself in a “Hong Kong is not China” flag.

Belief in ‘Popular Sovereignty’

According to the organising committee, the parliament, which will be formed by universal suffrage “represents, solidifies and revives Hong Kong people’s rights of self-determination.”

The scheme was initiated by businessman and commentator Elmer Yuen, who is the father of ex-People Power chair Erica Yuen and scholar Derek Yuen, who is married to New People’s Party lawmaker Eunice Yung.

The committee is chaired by journalist Victor Ho, who is the former editor-in-chief of the Vancouver edition of Sing Tao Daily.

Their statement said: “The Committee believes in Popular Sovereignty. Hongkongers should as of right decide Hong Kong’s future. To exercise this principle, Hongkongers must elect their representatives by free, fair, and safe elections which meet the international standard.”

The sweeping security legislation, enacted in June 2020, criminalised subversion, secession, collusion with foreign forces and terrorist acts, which were broadly defined to include disruption to transport and other infrastructure.

海外港人在多倫多成立香港議會籌委會

海外港人在多倫多成立香港議會籌委會

2022年7月27日,香港議會選舉籌備委員會在多倫多萬錦希爾頓酒店正式宣布成立,旨在為中共極權打壓下的香港人搭建一個平台,爭取主權在民,實現人民自決選舉議會,港人全面自治。(伊鈴/大紀元)

(大紀元記者伊鈴多倫多報導)一群居住在海外的香港人表示,他們將於明年舉行議會選舉,旨在在中共持續打擊香港的情況下,建立一個代表全球香港人的民主機構。

2022年7月27日(週三)香港議會選舉籌備委員會(下稱籌委會)在多倫多萬錦希爾頓酒店正式宣布成立,該委員會將為計劃於明年年底舉行的議會選舉制定規則,並設計和建立一個投票系統,鼓勵世界各地的香港人參與,實踐人民自決(self-determination)權利,以延續香港人自主管治自由香港的追求。

籌委會主席何良懋(Victor Ho)和國際事務小組主席袁弓夷(Elmer Yuen)週三在多倫多新聞發布會上表示,香港主權屬於全體香港人民;按照人民自決原則,通過一個公正、公開、安全以及遵行國際標準的普選平台,以一人一票選出民意代表,這才是香港人行使香港主權最直接方法,有效地體現自主和自治精神。

籌委會最主要職責是籌備香港議會的選舉工作。香港議會的成員得到正式民意授權,將可以加強在國際上就香港人關心的議題發聲,也致力爭取屬於香港人的應有權益。團結全球香港人,全球各地的香港人可以參與香港議會選舉的投票,並藉此在國際間宣示香港人的身分認同。

第一屆香港議會產生後,將由民選議員決定未來的香港政體事宜。「只有真正的民主選舉,才可以表達香港人的民意。」何良懋說。

人民選出的精英才代表人民

何良懋是前《星島日報》加拿大卑詩版的總編輯,現為網上平台廣傳媒行政總裁。他表示,香港議會的成立,部分靈感來自2019年香港區議會選舉。當時,人們在完全自由的情況下投票,投票率創歷史新高。這是在北京實施規定所有候選人必須是「愛國者」之前,舉行的最後一次選舉。

何良懋在接受大紀元記者採訪時表示,「一國兩制,港人高度自治」是個大騙局,大謊言,完全剝奪了香港人應該擁有的選舉權。香港議會的創立,就是要把香港人應該有的普選權還給香港人,讓香港人真正當家作主,自己管理自己,而不是讓中共來管理香港人。

「北京去年修改了選舉立法,剝奪了大多數香港人的權利。」何良懋說,「所有香港人都應有權通過符合國際標準的自由、公平和安全的選舉來選舉他們的代表。」

何良懋說,2019年香港區議會選舉投票,投票率超過81%。去年中共改變選舉制度,結果投票率只有31%,相差太遠。相當於一人一票的選舉功能沒有了。中共把香港原來不完善的民主選舉制度,改成了完全沒有民主的選舉制度。

「我們海外要創立一個平台,讓香港本土港人和海外港人都有機會實現一人一票,選出真正代表民意的議會成員。」何良懋說,這是香港自英國殖民時代以來,第一次提出這個概念,很多香港人還沒有從過去這個瓶頸突破出來。

活動主持人、國際事務小組主席袁弓夷表示,全世界共有1,000萬香港人,16歲以上就有權投票。

「很多人贊成精英制度,我們認為權在於民,要人民選出的精英做事才好。」袁弓夷說。

面對巨大挑戰

2022年7月27日,國際事務小組主席袁弓夷表示,儘管中共惡勢力會對香港議會項目實施各種干擾和破壞,但無法阻止、改變港人追求自由的決心和意志。(伊鈴/大紀元)

這樣一個項目的挑戰是巨大的,袁弓夷表示,香港議會推進過程中,面臨的挑戰巨大而多樣,尤其是在確保對選舉的信心方面,由於香港僑民的分散性,選舉必須在網上進行,這引發了許多安全問題。組織者不僅要保護他們的系統免受中國政府支持的黑客,和其他潛在的惡意行為者的攻擊,還要讓選民,特別是香港本地的選民放心,他們的個人信息不會被洩露。

袁弓夷說,《國安法》如同懸在香港人頭上的一把大刀,任何參與議會項目的香港人,無疑會觸犯嚴厲的《國安法》,該法將分裂、顛覆和勾結外國勢力定為犯罪。

為此,籌委會將會開發一套安全投票系統,以保護投票人的信息不會被洩露,為選民創造一個公平、公正、安全的選舉制度。

袁弓袁強調,儘管中共惡勢力會對香港議會項目實施各種干擾和破壞,但無法阻止、改變港人追求自由的決心和意志。
籌委會初步籌備工作項目

1. 就香港議會的選舉辦法擬定規則和程序;2. 設計一套能夠保障選民安全的投票機制,包括設立合資格選民的身分認證系統;3. 向海內外香港人社群推廣香港議會訊息,呼籲港人積極投票;4. 尋求國際上支持香港主權在民理念,以及自由民主同路人對香港議會的支持與協助;5. 確定香港議會選舉的提名、宣傳、投票、點票程序,以及國際監選機制。

籌委會由散居各地、支持「光復香港、時代革命」的香港人組成。主要成員名單如下:

籌委會主席何良懋:新聞工作者、網媒主持,曾在香港多家大學擔任兼任講師,主要教授新聞編輯與採訪;

公共關係小組主席梁頌恆:前立法會議員,現身在華盛頓特區做香港的倡議工作;

國際事務小組主席袁弓夷:香港美國實業家,香港議會概念倡議人。

籌委會宣告成立的同時,香港議會各個社交媒體帳戶及官方網站(https://hkparliament.com)也將正式開通。籌委會將發放有關香港議會選舉的資訊和最新消息,讓公眾得以了解籌備選舉最新進展。籌委會非常歡迎各界人士透過不同渠道,就香港議會的議題發表意見。
