恭賀劉曉波榮獲諾貝爾和平獎
要求中國釋放劉曉波及所有良心犯

挪威諾貝爾委員會今天(10月8日)公佈,和平獎得獎者為著名北京異見作家劉曉波博士,我們衷心祝賀劉曉波博士,我們相信他獲得這個獎項實至名歸。自八九民運以來,劉曉波從不間斷地以文字和平爭取改善中國人權狀況及表達對民主的渴求。

二零零八年十二月,劉曉波與另外三十二位公共知識份子原定於十二月十日聯合國人權宣言發表六十週年那天,發佈參考捷克《七七憲章》、中國憲法和兩個主要國際人權公約而擬定的《零八憲章》,表達希望中國進行政治改革、推進法治及保障基本人權等訴求,其提倡的內容符合諾貝爾和平獎精神,至今已有超過一萬人聯署。

然而,中國政府侵犯公民的言論自由,以言入罪,在二零零九年十二月二十五日以所謂「煽動顛覆國家政權罪」,將劉曉波重判十一年,剝奪政治權利兩年。另外一些著名的維權人士與作家如胡佳、高智晟、陳光誠、師濤、郭飛雄等等仍然身繫獄中或受嚴密監視;另一名《零八憲章》首批聯署人、四川民運人士及作家劉賢斌於今年六月二十八日被公安帶走,其後同樣以所謂「煽動顛覆國家政權罪」被正式逮捕。我們促請中國政府尊重人民和平表達意見的自由,立即釋放劉曉波和其他異見人士。

最後,中國外交部副部長傅瑩在諾貝爾和平獎公佈前,向諾貝爾和平獎委員會施壓不要把獎項頒予劉曉波,我們對此表達強烈抗議!外交部的做法是對諾貝爾和平獎的侮辱,公然企圖透過政治壓力影響這個舉世公認的重要獎項,我們希望國際社會認清中國政府打壓人權的種種惡行,促請中國政府積極改善人權狀況!

Congratulate Liu Xiaobo for Winning the Nobel Peace Prize,

Demand Immediate Release of Liu Xiaobo and all Prisoners of Conscience

8 October 2010

The Norwegian Nobel Committee today (8 October 2010) announced to give this year’s Nobel Peace Prize to prominent Beijing writer Dr. Liu Xiaobo. We whole-heartedly congratulate Liu Xiaobo. We believe that he is very much qualified to receive this award. Since the pro-democracy movement in 1989, Liu Xiaobo has never stopped using his pen to peacefully call for improvement of human rights and democracy in China.

In December 2008, Liu Xiaobo and 32 other public intellectuals originally planned to release the “Charter 08”, which was drafted with reference to Czechoslovak’s “Charter 77”, China’s Constitution and the two major international human rights covenants, on 10 December to mark the 60th anniversary of the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights. “Charter 08” was about the intellectuals’ demand for political reforms, the rule of law and protection of basic human rights, which was in line with the spirit of the Nobel Peace Prize. Until now, more than 10,000 people have co-signed the “Charter 08”.

However, the Chinese government clamps down on its citizens’ freedom of speech and imprison those who speak against the regime. On 25 December 2009, Liu Xiaobo was sentenced to 11 years’ imprisonment and deprived of political rights for two years on the charge of so-called “inciting subversion of state power”. Other famous human rights defenders and writers, such as Hu Jia, Gao Zhisheng, Chen Guangcheng, Shi Tao and Guo Feixiong are still either being imprisoned or under severe surveillance. Liu Xianbin, one of the first batch of signatories of “Charter 08” and a pro-democracy activist and writer in Sichuan province, was taken away by public security officers on 28 June 2010. He was later also formally arrested and charged with “inciting subversion of state power”. We urge the Chinese government to respect its citizens’ freedom to peacefully express their opinions. We also demand that the Chinese government should immediately release Liu Xiaobo and other dissidents.

Finally, we strongly protest against Chinese vice foreign minister Fu Ying’s attempt to impose pressure on the Nobel Committee not to give the award to Liu Xiaobo. Such act was a vast insult to the Nobel Peace Prize and it showed that the Chinese government tried to influence this most important and world-recognized award by political pressure. We hope that the international community can have a better understanding of the various human rights violations done by the Chinese government and urge the Chinese government to sincerely improve its appalling human rights records.

  1. 中國政府還有甚麼理由監禁一位諾貝爾和平獎得主?!寫一篇要求政治改革和改善人權的綱領性文件就是甚麼「煽動顛覆國家政權」?完全沒有法理!立即釋放劉曉波及所有良心犯!

  2. 没有真相的中国大陆,这里bbc和香港明报网站都已经打不开了
    真的要离开这个鬼地方
