Civic Groups Hold Pro-Hong Kong Demonstration|12港人"被送中"失聯 公民團體遊行聲援

According to reports, 12 anti-extradition protestors in Hong Kong were fleeing to Taiwan when they were captured by PRC authorities. They have not been able to contact their families for two months. On the afternoon of Oct. 25, a civic group staged a street protest in Taipei in support of Hong Kong and called on the PRC to release the demonstrators immediately.

Retrocession for Hong Kong, revolution.

The anti-extradition protestors in Hong Kong who call themselves the "Valiants" appeared in Taiwan on the afternoon of the 25th. Though dressed like Hong Kong's Valiants, these demonstrators were actually a local civic group and a group of immigrants from Hong Kong. They staged the protest to show support for Hong Kong, and demanded the immediate release of 12 protestors currently being detained in China.

China is holding these 12 Hong Kong citizens incommunicado and has taken away their right to defend themselves. We need more people to speak up.

According to reports, 12 anti-extradition protestors fled Hong Kong for Taiwan several months ago. They were reportedly captured by PRC authorities en route, and their families have not heard from them for two months.

Of course I am worried. If I weren't worried, I wouldn't have come here. They are arresting people every day. My whole family immigrated to Taiwan.

Immigrants from Hong Kong generally keep a low profile when taking part in protests in Taiwan. Last year, Hong Kong singer Denise Ho was attacked with paint while demonstrating in Taiwan. More recently, a Hong Kong citizen was allegedly tailed by private investigators. Democratic Progressive Party Deputy Secretary-General Lin Fei-fan says Hong Kong citizens are unable to speak freely even if they are by Taiwan.

The Chinese Communists are surveilling Taiwan, so (Hong Kong citizens) are not that free even though there are many demonstrations.

The private detectives were reportedly hired by a Hong Kong citizen named Lee Bin-hao. The National Immigration Agency says Lee violated the Laws and Regulations Regarding Hong Kong and Macao Affairs and other laws and has revoked Lee's residency permit. Lee was deported on the 25th. Civic groups continue to call on the government to turn Taiwan into an Asian battlefront to oppose the expansion of China's authoritarianism.

「光復香港,時代革命。」

去年香港反送中的抗議口號、旗幟,再度出現,青年一身「勇武派」示威裝扮,黑衣、面罩包緊緊,只是時空、背景已經不同。這是25號下午的台北東區街頭,關心香港局勢的公民團體和香港移民,下午發起撐港遊行,要求中國立即釋放12名反送中逃亡的抗爭者。

撐港遊行聲援律師 林俊宏表示:「中國把這12個港人,用這種不文明的手段,不給予任何辯護的機會,去剝奪他們為自己辯護的權利,我們需要更多人出來發聲。」

中國實施港版國安法之後,香港12名反送中人士,疑似想要搭船、偷渡來台,但遭到中國公安逮捕,至今兩個月,都還無法和家人聯繫。移民來台灣的香港人,也低調異地聲援。

在台香港移民表示:「當然很擔心,不擔心就不來了。他們每一天都在抓人,所以我確定(移民時),我一家人都移民過來台灣。」

儘管台灣是言論自由的社會,但移民人士參與集會遊行,仍保持低調。加上日前有香港青年來台參訪,遭到徵信社跟監、偷拍,以及去年香港歌手何韻詩來台參加撐港遊行,遭統派人士潑漆。民進黨副秘書長林飛帆坦言,受到中共勢力滲透,香港人就算身處台灣,還是無法在公開場合,暢所欲言。

民進黨副秘書長 林飛帆表示:「台灣,確實還是受到中共的很大程度監控。甚至很多遊行,他們並不是那麼自由。」

委託徵信社跟拍香港青年的,是一位名叫李彬豪的香港人,移民署發布新聞稿指出,其行為已違反港澳條例等規定,廢止他在台居留許可,並於25號強制驅逐出境。而公民團體持續透過上街等形式,主張台灣政府應該成為亞洲對抗中國威權擴張的戰線。
