別忘了周日10日也要出來聲援圖博遊行!人權是我們的基本價值!




每年的三月十日助理也都會陪我一起參與這項遊行,只因為「人權」是普世價值(本周日下午二點在忠孝復興站前集合,朝東區走到101大樓前),如果在台北市有這樣一件關切人權的遊行,我們怎能不站出來全力相挺?尤其達賴喇嘛竟被台灣政府列為「黑名單」不准進到台灣,這真是國際級丟臉的事,再打開台灣的報章媒介,達賴與法輪功現在竟變成了台灣媒介不准播放的禁忌,成為媒介「不得罪中國為前提」而不報導的「潛規則」,這還是自由民主的台灣嗎?

54年前的西藏在與中華人民共和國簽訂了和平協議後,慘遭軍隊進駐對圖博人大屠殺,達賴喇嘛與圖博人被迫流亡印度,台灣有這麼多的佛教徒,我每天在一殯、二殯都遇到非常多佛教徒為往生者念經,那麼,我們怎麼不關切圖博這麼多佛教徒的基本人權,尤其中國是禁止宗教自由的,台灣人怎能對此冷漠呢?

台灣人民對民主自由的抉擇將決定我們的命運,台灣人對西藏的態度也將記錄在歷史上!我們怎能對這些血與淚的事實選擇集體無意識!?

高雄市政府四年前已把三月十日訂「圖博日」,紀念1959年3月10日圖博人在拉薩與解放軍武裝衝突所流的血。相對於於高雄市政府義無反顧,台北市議會2008年曾為這個議題舌戰兩小時仍無結論,可惜國民黨強調西藏為大中華固有疆域,反對在台北市升起雪山獅子旗。

這幾年來,西藏僧侶接力自焚,因為守護民主自由人權不分疆界與族群,更是小國島民必須捍衛之價值,全世界重要國家二、三千個大小城市例如美國、法國、德國、歐盟、捷克、匈牙利、奧地利、瑞士和克羅埃西亞等國家首都城市早已訂三月十日為圖博日,距離1959年已整整49年頭,我們落後太久了,不該再坐視圖博人繼續流血,如果台灣人連聲援的勇氣都沒有時,國際人士難道會看得起太平洋上我們這個島嶼?

台灣要站在強權那一方?或勇敢站出來聲援吶喊的西藏人?難道我們不能幫西藏人講一句話?民主自由人權等進步的價值呢?
_________________________________________
以下是2008年7月3日我在東京參加圖博人權會議時的會議內容,重新回首,我們可曾改變了什麼?台灣有進步嗎?

今天我非常榮幸在東京這個重要時刻與各位與談,不只是因為北海道正在開八國峰會,而是因為兩天之後,台灣即將面臨歷史上的轉變,台灣八個民航機場同時開放中國人民往返。不可否認,中華人民共和國經濟改善,伴隨中國民族主義、中國帝國主義,21世紀讓「雙T」:太平洋上的Taiwan,及亞洲的Tibet命運糾結,Taiwan面臨中國飛彈瞄準的人侵威脅,Tibet受中國入侵威脅,雙T有著同樣的困境及委屈。

就在我站在台上的同時,台灣的圖博之友會的朋友們帶著西藏自由之火及雪山獅子旗,爬上台灣最高峰玉山,希望西藏的人權與自由的呼籲能在台灣發光發熱。但是,七月四日也正逢台灣歷史關鍵時刻,全台八個機場將開放中國民航機直航抵台,解放軍還趁此軍演如何以民航機載解放軍侵台,布署的飛彈數更與日俱增。相較之下,西藏議題則因為奧運而受到台灣矚目,台灣人民約有近半數以上同情並理解西藏情況,大選時雙方候選人都舉辦為西藏祈福的活動,這也使得一般台灣人開始了解而接觸西藏議題。台北市議員簡余晏、李慶峰等民進黨議員並在台北市議會提案,希望3月10日也在台北市成為「圖博日」,紀念西藏起義。

這是我們能為圖博朋友所能做的一點微薄努力,我希望西藏朋友受到壓迫時,台灣能做為朋友的後盾!

從上海、北京等城市的繁榮,我們都可以看到中華人民共和國的富裕進步,但不可否認的是,中國在達弗為了石油而支持獨裁蘇丹,在圖博不惜屠殺漠視30萬圖博人的抵制,更以1400顆飛彈瞄準台灣。此外,中國在人權記錄、限制言論自由紀錄下、封鎖網路民主上斑斑血跡,所以,站在人權與民主的立場上,唯有圖博、台灣及全世界的民主愛好人士共同努力,正視我們命運的連結,才可能共同扭轉雙T的命運,避免台灣或圖博被犧牲在中華帝國主義之下。

此刻,我們都希望中國2008年奧運為轉變契機,但從聖火傳遞一事來看,中國政權的本質並沒有改變,其政治運作是「指定接班人」的政體,在民主及資訊公開、全球化浪潮下,中國也必須做某些程度的改變,台、中關從過去八年的「冷和」到現在的「熱絡」,台灣面臨著過去西藏人被漢人大量移入的危機,在文化、語言、媒體上面遭受新一波中國錢潮攻勢,中華人民共和一方面用武器對準威脅台灣,另一方面重金買下台灣的媒體電視報紙,向台灣人大量輸入中國式思考,台灣政論節目且一再強調解放軍多愛人民,胡錦濤多優秀,這在一般民主國家幾乎難以想像。換句話說,台灣目前正遭受中華人民共和國的思想戰威 脅。而台灣所面臨的壓迫,與之前西藏、香港等幾乎都雷同。也因此,我們非常擔心未來的台灣可能「西藏化」。

圖博人愛好和平且有宗教信仰,台灣人則生性善良,我們雙T同樣面臨中國的壓力,做為民主社會的一份子,我期許台灣與圖博人士聯手,共同正視在資本主義掩飾之下的「中國帝國主義」,堅持民主、自由、人權的普世價值,也希望國際重視台灣與圖博人雙T的人權,作為我們的後盾。今天與會聽了來自西藏、蒙古、東土耳其斯坦、澳洲、日本朝野等各界的聲音,我非常感動,我相信所謂中道的力量就是人民的力量,在座的每一位,讓我們一同努力吧,台灣加油、日本加油、西藏加油!
The “two Ts”: Taiwan and Tibets’ fate under China’s threat.

1. The “ two Ts” fate connected to each other.
Since the 21st. century, the rising of PRC and Asia is becoming current center issue. It’s undeniable that China has changed from communism toward captalism society, and become a main concern of the world in the globalization trend. But along with the China’s economy growing on the base of nationalism and Chinese imperialism, the fate of the so-called” two Ts”, Taiwan in Pacific and Tibet at the center of Asia continent, has some kind of connection. Taiwan is facing invasion and missiles threat of China, and so is Tibet, Taiwan and Tibet have the same difficulties and injustice from China.

2. The political changes of 2008.
During the past 8 years, Taiwan, on the tiny island of Pacific, under the DPP rule had been insisted that Taiwan is not a part of China, and depends on the US-Japan Security Alliance. Taiwan has been expand Taiwan-Japan’s relationship actively, and the relationship across the Strait was once in “cold peace”, which means under the Taiwan Sovereignty Discourses “one country on each side”, non-equal country to country status is not acceptable.

But as a part of the Pacific safty island chain, Taiwan is seeing crucial changes in 2008, the National Party which favours Taiwan being part of China regains the rule power, since the new president Ma Ying Jeou took office, his government has eagerly reopened the cross strait talk, and it’s took place under the situation of setting aside the sovereignty dispute. Not long before, the Taiwan’s fish boat and Japan’s marintime patrol boat collide in the Diaoyutai area prompted Taiwan’s government recall the amabassador to Japan, and resulted to the changing in quality of Taiwan-Japan’s relationship.

Taiwan is changing from the “depends on US, Japan, and apart from China” course under the past two president Chen Shiu Bian and Lee Tan Huei to the “depends on China, apart from US, Japan.”

On 4th. July Taiwan will experience a historical crucial moment, the 8 airports of Taiwan will be open to direct flight from China, and the Chinese People’s Liberation Military also exercise in the meantime about how to invasion Taiwan with civil aircrafts, and the number of missiles China deploys toward Taiwan is increasing too.
On comparison, the Tibet issue is being noticed by Taiwan because of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, about half of Taiwanese sympathe and understand the situation in Tibet. During the Taiwan president election, 2 candidates both hosted praying events for Tibetians which helps gerneral Taiwan people to start understand the problems that Tibet is facing.

Taipei City councilors簡余晏、李慶峰 have proposed a bill to declare 10th. March “Tibet Day” in Taipei City in memory of the Tibet uprising, but this bill was boycutt by the National Party member. Though, proposed by Kaohsiung City councilor 連立堅, the Kaohsiung City Mayor 陳菊 has agreed to set the “Tibet Day” in Kauhsiung.

3. Chinese imperialism blockade democracy and human rights.

The prosperity of Shanghai and Beijing show us the richness and progress of PRC, and there’s no need to demonize this rapidly developing country. But the undeniable point is that on the Darfur genocide issue, China choose supporting the dictatorship Sudan for the oil interest, and kill the tibetian ignore of 300 thousands tibetians’ protest, even more, China is threating Taiwan with 1400 missiles. Besides, China has poor records on human rights, restriction of speech and freedom, block democracy, that’s why for the human rights and democracy, only when Tibet, Taiwan and the democracy supporters all over the world make efforts to serious consider the connections between Taiwan and Tibet, there’s possible we can twist the “two Ts” fate to avoid from being sacrificed of Chinese Imperialism.

4. Taiwan is under the money, public opion and thought war waved by China.

The 2008 Beijing Olympic is viewed as a chance of change for China, but judge from the Olympic torch relay dispute, the nature of the China regim is not changed. Even though it’s political process is not traditional imperial hereditary system, it’s still a “desination successor” dictatorship. In the wave of democracy, transparent of information and globalize, China has to make some changes too. The Cross-strait relationship changing from the “cold peace” in the past 8 years to the current “warm”, Taiwan is facing the Han people massively immigrant rish the same way Tibet has been through, and is under new wave of china capital attack on culture, language and media. PRC is threating Taiwan with weapons aimed at Taiwan, and heavily investment in the Taiwan media, tranfer Chinese thought to Taiwanese. The political talk shows of Taiwan repeatedly emphasize how friendly the Chinese military is to civil people, how good the Chinese leader Hu is, these are unimaginable in democratic countries. In other words, Taiwan is under the threat of thought war by PRC, and the risk Taiwan is facing is almost the same way Tibet and HongKong have faced.

5. China improves international relationship shall not endanger the peace of Taiwan.
To tell from the international situation, under globalization and economic trends, China interacts with international society, and the relationship with Japan might be improve gradually. But concerning contemporary democracy, human rights, free speech and universe value, if we let the dictorship keep expending, it might further endanger the democracy value of the Taiwan elected president, thus putting democratic Taiwan in backwards. If Taiwan which on the strategic location of the Pacific bow to dictorship China, it actually means the Chinese Imperialism has further expand it’s territory through the “ Chinese nationalism” brain wash, and this might further threat the peace of asia-pacific as well.

6. Work together to insist the universe values of democracy, freedom and human rights.
Tibetians are peace-loving and faithful people, and people in the Formosa is kind in nature, and even more peaceful after being through the occupied by many powers in history. But as a democracy country of 21st. century, I hope the Taiwanese and Tibetian will work together, take serious of the “ Chinese Imperialism” cover by the capitalism, continuing insist on democracy, freedom, human rights, and I hope the international society value Taiwan and Tibet, the so-call “two Ts” human rights, and support us. Let us work together to achieve these universe values.
