各位今日去行街嘅朋友請留意: 從昨日各事件而判斷,今年港警下手相當狠,可能會有不正常情況出現。如果可以,請準備以下防身用品,以策安全。

– 保鮮紙或眼罩
– 額外嘅水 (越多越好,用唔晒喺終點放低做補給)
– 可以拍影片嘅智能手機
– 大量手機用電池、差電線

另外,有臥底混入嘅可能性不容忽視,遊行人士請時刻保持克制,切勿隨便被煽動,留意可疑人物,照顧同行的人。

今日街上見。

如果有睇過七六年的Network,都會記得下面的情節。

放諸今日,情節和現今世界,何其相似。彼得芬查的角色所帶出的信息,其實很簡單:睇唔過眼要出聲。聲都唔敢聲,乜都唔關心,安於現狀,死到臨頭時唔好怪人唔幫你。

If you want change to happen, you have gotta get mad. If you can’t get mad, you might as well be dead.

我相信人應該有安全、經濟上可負擔的、體面的居所。
我相信人應該有權表達她的意見,無論正面、負面,或是戲謔,而不會受無理的壓迫。
我相信人應該有權直接選擇為他們服務的政府,更有權把不稱職的政府趕下台。
我相信人應該有權以任何方式作出藝術創作,更有權在不干擾其他人的情況下,在公眾空間分享他們的創作。

如果有政府不能確保以上的種種權利,那麼,它合該倒台。

如果你相信這些,七月一日下午三點半,維園見。

自由社會的人所擁有的言論自由,在現在是前所未有的。

可是,在極權國家的人民,言論自由被剝奪的情況,在現在亦是前所未有的。在伊朗如是,在中國大陸亦如是。

雖然科技令伊朗人民在近日的綠色革命中的消息封鎖下維持聯繫,並對全世界實況廣播。又如內地的網民,千方百計找尋突破中共的『萬里防火牆』,從而維持正常網上活動和溝通。然而,各地極權政府的控制,既無日無之亦不斷升級,對言論自由的威脅前所未有。

不要以為我們可以獨善其身。伊朗政府可以在網絡上阻擋FacebookTwitter,任何政府都可以這樣做。內地政府以過濾不良資訊為名,強迫人民在電腦上安裝綠壩,一依隔水的香港的情況難免令人憂慮。

1946年,神學家馬田·尼莫拉這樣

=====

起初他們追殺猶太人

我不說話

因為我不是猶太人

接著他們追殺共產主義者

我不說話

因為我不是共產主義者

後來他們追殺工會成員

我還是不說話

因為我不是工會成員

最後他們要追殺我

但已經沒有人可以站起來為我說話了

=====

這些話語,到現在仍然適用。我們為什麼要保護網上的言論自由?因為我們的自由尚未被剝奪,在仍能發聲的時候,我們對被壓迫的人們有道義上的責任。因為你不單是聲援內地和伊朗的人民,亦是為反對我們的言論空間不斷收窄的現實。讓我們在七月一日上街,反對網上霸權,維護網上言論自由。如果你希望支持伊朗和內地為自由、公義而犧牲自由和生命的人,請你當日穿著綠衫,以資識別。

維護網上言論自由,推動民主與人權。改變由你我的電腦開始!身體力行,為實現你想見到的改變,七月一日下午三點,維園見!

HK71Green Manifesto

There has never been a time like now, when we free people had so much freedom of speech.

There has never been a time like now, when freedom of speech are supressed and crushed under totalitarian regimes, from Iran to China.

Luckily, technology helps, like Iran: Twitter had maintain a lifeline to protestors on their Green Revolution, while video streaming allow the world to witness the conflict. Good citizens in China had make use of technology and develop techniques to penetrate the so called “Great Fire Wall of China", allowing communication and information flow to continue. However, with the increasing pressure for control from totalitarian regimes everywhere, freedom of speech online is at greater peril than ever before.

And, don’t think this is far away from you. What is happening to Iranians and Mainland Chinese can happen to you and me. The cutoff of most internet services to and from Iran now, can happen here. The introduction of Green Dam on computers in China can happen here, if our lousy government decide to give in to conservative pressure and licence the software, all in the name of “protect our children from filthy online content". Even the filtering on the “Great Fire Wall of China" can happen here, if we are not vigiliant.

In 1946, Martin Niemöller said:

===

First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.

===

It rings true to this day. Why speak out for online freedom of speech? Because we still can, and we have moral obligation to speak out while we can. Because helping Iranians and Mainland Chinese are just like helping yourself. Walk with us on July 1st in protest against oppression of Freedom of Speech, wear green garment to show our support to Chinese and Iranians, who sacrifice their freedom and lives for the greater good.

Defend Information Freedom, Promote Democracy and Human Rights. The fight starts from your computer. Be the change you wish to see in the world! We will see you at the Victoria Park, on July 1st, 3 p.m.!
