國際特赦組織秘書長:2016,是堅持尋求公義的一年
 
國際特赦組織秘書長Salil Shetty在網誌中撰寫對來年人權運動的展望。

我們不能漠視世界正在發生的一切,就算面對無數的衝突、歧視、欺壓,只要我們願意去追求大家所期盼的世界,相信自己的影響力,定必帶來轉變。在新一年,我們仍要繼續與世界各地的人權運動人士同心協力,尋求公義,向政府剖明訴求;即使他們一次又一次令人感到沮喪和失望,大家仍要攜手堅持下去。
 
國際特赦組織秘書長Salil Shetty說:「你不能一邊宣傳言論自由,另一邊卻拘捕和平示威者及異見人士。你不能口口聲聲說和平,卻成為全球最大的武器製造商。你不能一面宣揚人權,一面否定難民尋求庇護的權利。」 

新年伊始,萬象更新,讓我們繼續一起為創造一個人權受到尊重的世界而努力。
 
Secretary General of Amnesty International:
2016 is the year for justice

 
Secretary General of Amnesty International Salil Shetty looks ahead at the future development of human rights.

We cannot hide the reality of the world we live in, but we can fight for the world we want. Although we can sometimes feel that our world is spinning off its axis along with a lot of conflict, discrimination and suppression, we can still use our influence to change the world if we want to. This year, we should join with people across the world who are rising in protest and tell our government that we want justice. Whenever and wherever governments fail us, we must hold them to account. We must stand together and make sure no one is left behind.
 
Secretary General of Amnesty International Salil Shetty wrote on his blog: “Let’s tell them that they cannot talk about free speech and at the same time arrest peaceful protesters and dissenters. They cannot lecture about peace while being the world’s largest manufacturers of arms. And they cannot preach about human rights while denying refugees safe and legal ways to seek sanctuary abroad.”

A new year is coming. We should continuing embrace our belief in which everyone enjoys human rights.

翁斐斐收到您的鼓勵

緬甸學生領袖翁斐斐,因上年初於當地舉辦遊行,抗議當地修改法例以限制學術自由,遭到當局檢控。她上月初到庭出席聆訊前,收到來自我們及世界各分會的會員及支持者送出的鼓勵信件。她透過我們於當地的研究員向各位致謝,並分享以下一段感想:
 
「你們的信,啟發我如何繼續走下去。我開始感覺到,全世界的人都在關注我們,為我們打氣,我們並不孤單。我感謝每一位支持我及這個社會運動的人。即使現在我們仍未看到政府官員改變初衷,但是我們可以影響他們的想法。你們給我的信,不只是單單的一張紙,而是對我的一份厚禮。你們的信,讓學生們感到有力量,並對改變緬甸的未來燃點希望。」
 

我們感謝各位支持者與及AI Club的同學,為翁斐斐送上鼓勵。

Phyoe Phyoe Aung received your solidarity messages 

Phyoe Phyoe Aung, one of our Write for Rights cases this year, was in court in December and she was able to receive just some of the thousands of letters and cards sent to her by activists around the world. She also passed on the following message:
 
"Receiving letters gives me real inspiration for what we are doing. I have begun to notice that the world is watching and cheering us – we are not alone. I thank everyone very much for their support for me and our movement. Although we cannot see the results from the government yet, it can influence their mindset...Your letters are not just letters, they are also big presents and great strength not only for the students but also for Burma’s future."
 
Thank you to our supporters and students of different AI Clubs who have sent your solidarity messages to Phyoe Phyoe Aung.

我很榮幸能為國際特赦組織籌款。在過去50多年,它一直擔當著保護及宣傳人權的獨立而又重要的角色。在香港,國際特赦組織正在努力改善人權教育,外籍家庭傭工及同志群體的權利,以及推動在亞洲地區的捍衛人權工作。以上的工作全靠公眾的捐款支持才能成功,希望大家可以贊助我們各位跑手!

I'm proud to be raising funds for Amnesty International as for over 50 years it has been a vital independent global advocate for the protection and promotion of everyone's human rights. In Hong Kong, Amnesty International is working hard to improve human rights education, the rights of foreign domestic workers and LGBT groups, as well as the better protection of human rights across Asia. It is only with the continued support of the public by donations that Amnesty can continue this vital work, so I hope you can sponsor our run!

我加入TEAM AMNESTY 是因為國際特赦組織在維護和辯護的人權方面的工作十分出色。在保護言論自由、推動政治參與公民權利、廢除死刑等,國際特赦組織都會隨時挺身而出,保衛人權及發聲。體育精神與捍衛人權同樣需要毅力及不怕苦,最重要是敢於挑戰及堅持,成功往往比我們想像中近。祝願其他 TEAM AMNESTY 成員及香港分會未來的工作有好表現! 

I join TEAM AMNESTY because Amnesty International (AI) has done a great job in making an impact to safeguard and vindicate human rights. From issues such as protecting freedom of speech, legitimizing civil rights for political participation, to abolition of death penalty, AI is there whenever there is a need ignored, a freedom restrained, a voice unheard, an act oppressed. Sportsmanship, much like upholding human rights, is never without hardship. The key is to take it as a challenge and hold on - the goal is always nearer than one assumes. Good luck to fellow AI runners and the future work of Amnesty.
