國際特赦組織2016/17年報 - 撐起你想要嘅世界

國際特赦組織發表2016/17年《世界人權狀況》年報

過去一年,全球的政治環境,令推動人權進程甚為艱難。多國政客以強化「我者與他者」的論述,試圖將少數群體「妖魔化」以製造仇恨和恐懼獲得選票,然而此舉將會令世界變得更分裂和危險。

國際特赦組織發表2016/2017年《世界人權狀況》年報,指出「妖魔化政治」令全球人權倒退。年報詳情,可瀏覽 http://amst.hk/201617air

國際特赦組織秘書長Salil Shetty說 :「我們不能再被動地依賴政府來捍衛人權;反之,我們,即人民,要站起來。當一眾政客愈來愈樂於將所有人權捍衛者妖魔化,人民就更應站起來捍衛人類尊嚴及平等等基本價值。我們應團結一致,向政府施壓,要求政府必需將所有違反人權的人加以懲處。」

在黑暗的時期,不論你身處何方,只要在捍衛人權上堅守立場,每個人都可以作出改變 - 這是我們每一個人都需迎接的挑戰。

Amnesty International released its 2016/17 Annual Report

2016 was the year when the cynical use of ‘us vs them’ narratives of blame, hate and fear. Politicians wielding a toxic, dehumanizing ‚us vs them‛ rhetoric are creating a more divided and dangerous world.

Amnesty International released its Annual Report for 2016 to 2017, warning the risk of domino effect as powerful states backtrack on human rights commitments. To read the full report, please visit: http://www.amnesty.org

“We cannot passively rely on governments to stand up for human rights, we the people have to take action. With politicians increasingly willing to demonize entire groups of people, the need for all of us to stand up for the basic values of human dignity and equality everywhere has seldom been clearer,” said Salil Shetty, Secretary General of Amnesty International.

In dark times, individuals can make a difference when they take a stand to defend human rights. We must all rise to that challenge now.

活動預告 UPCOMING EVENTS

就讓我們趁春天,走一趟中環法治之旅

「『你認為香港現在仍是個法治社會嗎?』導賞員在旅程結束後問。這是個值得深思的問題。從法治之旅中,我們認識了香港法治的歷史,亦知道香港在許久前並沒有公平公正的法治,香港是經過不少努力才成為法治社會。但更值得思考的是:香港將來會是個法治社會嗎?我們能維持香港的法治嗎?作為中學生,我們可以做甚麼?」
— Weiss Wong, 2017年1月, 探索香港法治之路後有感

時間:下午2時至4時

Join our Rule of Law Walking Tour@Central in Spring 2017
"'Do you think Hong Kong is still a society with the rule of law?' the guide asked us when the tour came to an end. This question is worth pondering. From the tour, we have learned the history of the rule of law in Hong Kong and we know that Hong Kong had fought for it for long to become a society ruled by law. But the more important question is : Will Hong Kong still be having the rule of law in the future? Can we maintain the rule of law in Hong Kong? As a secondary school student, what can we do?”

Enjoy spring with us by joining the walking tour in Central. We will look at the old buildings as well as sharing the stories of the rule of law in Hong Kong.
