曼城華埠街坊商會發文指合法遊行集會人士為「廢青亂港分子」

Hongkongers in Britain 英國港僑協會:

本會留意有部份在英華僑團體發佈言論, 指涉合法遊行集會人士為「廢青亂港分子」, 除了引發族群仇恨,亦踐踏英國政府捍衛香港自由的莊嚴承諾,更無視扎根於英國的民主價值。

所指之集會,主辦方除了事前向警方報備,現場更有警察及警車在場戒備, 並且在其監護及指引之下確保民眾符合防疫規則,現場秩序良好,警民雙方遵守分際,絕無違規乃至執法行動。

有關團體使用「廢青亂港分子」之藐稱, 並號召群眾採取「應對行動」,對集會人士的安全和自由構成潛在威脅。 本會呼籲,在英港人應注意安全,如遇到可疑及危險狀況,可向警方及本會報告。本會將適時與國會、 政府、警方、媒體及安全單位報備。

HKB is paying attention to the statements made by a Chinese ex-pat group in the UK, alleging that legal rally attendees are “anti Hong Kong disruptors”. In addition to inciting hatred, it also tramples on the British government’s historical commitment to defend Hong Kong’s freedom and even ignores the value of democracy in where they’re living.

In addition to reporting to the police about the rally in advance, the policemen and police cars were on the scene to guard, and under their supervision and guidance to ensure that the rally attendees comply with the rules to contain the pandemic. The rally was in good order, no violations or enforcement actions.

The relevant group used the slander of “anti Hong Kong disruptors” and called on the masses to take “response actions”, posing a potential threat to the safety and freedom of the people in the rally. We urge Hongkongers in Britain to be aware of safety, report suspicious and dangerous situations to the police and HKB. HKB will keep reporting to the Parliament, the government, the police, media and security agencies in due course.
