緊急行動 URGENT ACTION

#我撐 #集會自由
 
雨傘運動已3週年,回顧這3年間,多位曾參與雨傘運動的人士被捕,部份被當局以《公安條例》起訴、甚至被判處入獄。

雨傘運動基本上為和平的抗議活動,而和平集會乃人的基本權利。但於世界各地,不少政府都會以各種手法,起訴社運人士 ,企圖阻止他們行使這些權利;此舉亦造成寒蟬效應,阻嚇公眾參與和平集會。而香港的《公安條例》曾多次被聯合國人權事務委員會批評,未完全符合國際人權法及國際人權標準。

在雨傘運動踏入3週年之際,我們誠邀你一同撐起集會自由,透過文字向因行使和平集會權利而被判入獄的社運人士表達支持之餘,同時透過相片亦展現我們撐集會自由的決心。

#WithThem Support #FreedomofAssemby in Hong Kong

It has been three years since the Umbrella Movement. In these 3 years, some activists who participated in this largely peaceful protest were prosecuted, and even imprisoned based on public order laws.

Peaceful assembly is indispensable right. However, across the globe, many regimes attempt to silence activists by charging them with rigid laws. Regimes incite fear and create chilling effects, eventually threaten citizen participation in peaceful assembly. While in Hong Kong, the Public Order Ordinance was repeated criticised by the UN Human Rights Committee that it is not fully compatible with international human rights laws and standards

We would invite you to join our action, to Support the #FreedomofAssembly in Hong Kong with your photos, while support those who are imprisoned when exercising their rights wit you words.

煞停種族清洗,停止迫害羅興亞人!
 
自8月25日起,已經有超過41萬名羅興亞人受嚴重迫害而逃離緬甸,前往鄰近的孟加拉尋求庇護。這不只是全世界增長最急速的難民危機,還是針對羅興亞人的種族清洗。

羅興亞人聚居住的緬甸若開邦(Rakhine state)遭到緬甸軍方的攻擊、部落皆被燒毀。即使許多羅興亞人受重傷,緬甸政府仍限制人道救援進入若開邦,使羅興亞人無法取得食水、食物及醫療資源,與世隔絕。

緬甸軍方所造成的人權侵害已構成危害人類罪。昂山素姬身為緬甸的國務資政及實際上的領導人,卻否認那些報告所指的軍隊駭人暴行,亦未出手緩解緊張的情勢。

 立刻行動!  http://amst.hk/stopmyanmarcrisis 

呼籲緬甸國防軍總司令 Min Aung Hlaing

  • 立即終止緬甸軍方的暴力行動及人權侵害。
  • 確保人道救援團體、聯合國、獨立記者及相關人員,能夠自由且暢通地進入若開邦。


STOP THE ETHNIC CLEANSING IN MYANMAR, STOP KILLING 

Since the 25th August, around 412,000 people have fled Myanmar to nearby Bangladesh due to brutal violence and killings. It is the world's fastest-growing refugee crisis. It is ethnic cleansing.

Sites inhabited by the Rohingya people in Rakhine State have been set alight by Myanmar’s security forces and vigilante mobs and villages have been burnt to the ground. Even as many of the Rohingya people have been seriously injured, the Myanmar government has still restricted humanitarian aid to enter into Rakhine State, isolating the Rohingya people from water, food and medical resources.

This is ethnic cleansing which amounts to a crime against humanity. Aung San Suu Kyi, Myanmar's State Counsellor and de facto leader, has not only taken no action to ease the situation but also denied the horrors unfolding in Rakhine State.

 ACT NOW!  http://amst.hk/stopmyanmarcrisis-en 

Sign the petition and demand that the Commander in Chief Senior General Min Aung Hlaing:

  • Immediately end the military's campaign of violence and human rights abuses.
  • Ensure free and unimpeded access to Rakhine state by humanitarian actors, the UN, independent journalists and human

Human Rights Friday: From wrongful conviction to freedom – Conversation with an ex-death row inmate

The judiciary is often said to be the last resort for justice.  In a society where the rule of law prevails, everyone is equally entitled to a fair and impartial hearing by the independent courts.  However, what can we do when the courts fail to deliver justice?

We cordially invite you to this event which coincides with the 15th World Day Against The Death Penalty. Participants will have the opportunity to have a conversation with Mr. Hsu, a former death row inmate from Taiwan who was released only two years ago after 16 years in detention. 

Date:      20th October 2017
Time:      19:30-22:00
Venue:    4 Cats @ Quarry Bay (Flat 1101, 11/F, Eastern Centre, 1065 King's Rd)
Event details:     Film screening and a Q&A session with Mr. Hsu Tzu-chiang; snacks and refreshments will be provided
