    Merkel ngọa triều giữa tiếng kêu tuyệt vọng từ Hồng Kông

    Hong Kong protesters ask Angela Merkel for support

    Activist Joshua Wong urged the German Chancellor to use her trip to China to speak on behalf of pro-democracy protesters. Meanwhile, reports suggest Lam is expected to withdraw the controversial extradition bill.



    In an open letter published in Germany's Bild daily, prominent Umbrella Movement leader Joshua Wong asked Chancellor Angela Merkel to back the pro-democracy protesters during her upcoming visit to China. It comes amid reports that the extradition bill is expected to be withdrawn on Wednesday.

    Sources told the South China Morning Post that the extradition bill is set to be formally withdrawn on Wednesday afternoon. It would mean the government will concede to one of the major demands from protesters.

    The letter comes as Hong Kong has been mired in political instability for months and in the wake of violent protests. Activists and demonstrators poured into the streets initially over a piece of legislation that would make it easier to extradite crime suspects to China.

    But the movement has evolved to demand the resignation of Hong Kong's Chief Executive Carrie Lam, the expansion of democratic reforms and an investigation over police brutality against demonstrators.

    "You have first-hand experience of the terrors of a dictatorial government," Wong wrote, in reference to Merkel's upbringing in the Soviet-backed regime of the German Democratic Republic (GDR).

    Personal appeal

    Merkel spent four decades living in communist East Germany, working as a research scientist until the end of the Cold War led to reunification in 1990.

    She has described the GDR's collapse as the most important turning-point in her life.

    "The Germans courageously stood at the forefront of the fight against authoritarianism during the 80s," the 22-year-old Wong said.

    "We hope that you will express your concern about our catastrophic situation and that you will convey our demands to the Chinese government during your stay in China."

    Merkel will land in China on Thursday for a three-day trip, accompanied by a large business delegation.

    Diplomatic tightrope

    Though the Hong Kong protesters' cause is popular in Germany, Merkel will face the same difficulties she has faced before when calling China out for human rights violations, while still seeking to maintain economic ties with Beijing.

    "Germany should be on its guard doing business with China, because China does not abide by international law and has repeatedly broken its promises," Wong wrote in the letter, signed also by Joephy Wong and Alice Yu, artists from Hong Kong now living in Germany.

    The protests in Hong Kong over the past few months have evolved into the biggest political crisis in the Asian financial hub since its 1997 handover from the British to China.

    Hong Kong braces for more protests as Merkel calls for dialogue

    Rallies to target airport, gov't buildings over weekend as German chancellor calls for peaceful solution on China visit.

    Hong Kong is bracing for more demonstrations over the weekend, with protesters threatening to disrupt transport links to the airport as they continue their campaign for more democracy in the Chinese-ruled city.

    On Wednesday, embattled leader Carrie Lam withdrew the controversial extradition bill that first triggered the mass rallies three months ago, conceding to one of the protesters' five demands.

    But the demonstrators, who are also calling for the right for Hong Kong to elect its own leader and an independent investigation into alleged police brutality, said it was not enough.

    Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel, on a visit to China, raised the impasse with Chinese premier Li Keqiang in Beijing on Friday, saying a peaceful solution is needed.

    "I stressed that the rights and freedoms for (Hong Kong) citizens have to be granted," Merkel said in Beijing.

    "In the current situation violence must be prevented. Only dialogue helps. There are signs that Hong Kong's chief executive will invite such a dialogue. I hope that materialises and that demonstrators have the chance to participate within the frame of citizens' rights."

    Li told a news conference with Merkel: "The Chinese government unswervingly safeguards 'one country, two systems' and 'Hong Kong people govern Hong Kong people," referring to the governing framework and freedoms agreed with the British when the territory reverted to China in 1997 and that residents fear is being eroded.

    He said Beijing supported the administration in Hong Kong "to end the violence and chaos in accordance with the law, to return to order, which is to safeguard Hong Kong's long-term prosperity and stability".

    Continuing protests

    On Friday, students stood hand-to-hand outside their schools to form human chains and press their case for the four remaining demands.

    Rallies are planned on Friday evening which will home in on metro stations and government buildings.

    On Saturday, protesters plan to block traffic to the city's international airport, one of the region’s busiest hubs.

    In an advertisement on Friday in the South China Morning Post newspaper, the Airport Authority of the Asian financial hub urged protesters "not to disrupt the journey of tens of thousands of travellers who use the airport every day".

    Many protesters remain angry over Lam's refusal to initiate an independent inquiry into perceived police brutality in their handling of the protests.

    Police have fired tear gas and bean-bag rounds at protesters, who, in turn, have thrown petrol bombs and bricks in running battles on city streets.

    The protests present Chinese President Xi Jinping with his greatest political challenge since he came to power in 2012.

    Legislation addressing China's actions in Hong Kong will be among the top priorities pushed by Democrats in the United States Senate when Congress returns to work after a recess next week, their leader said on Thursday.

    Merkel says Hong Kong freedoms 'must be guaranteed'

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Friday the rights and freedoms of people in Hong Kong "must be guaranteed" after meeting with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang in Beijing, her spokesman said.

    Hong Kong has been plunged into months of pro-democracy protests, and ahead of her three-day visit to China this week protestors in the semi-autonomous city appealed to the German chancellor to support them in her meetings with China's leadership.

    In a tweet Friday, spokesman Steffen Seibert quoted Merkel as saying: "The rights and freedoms of the people of Hong Kong must be guaranteed. Solutions can only be found in dialogue; do everything possible to prevent violence".

    Merkel arrived in China on Thursday with a large business delegation in tow.

    Merkel said she had discussed tensions in the former British colony, and civil rights there, with her hosts and had "pointed out that these rights and freedoms must of course be guaranteed".

    "In the current situation everything must be done to avoid violence," Merkel said at a joint press conference with Li, as seen in video footage published by German media.

    "And the solutions can only be found in a political process -- meaning through dialogue."

    Merkel arrived in China on Thursday with a large business delegation in tow.

    The companies travelling with Merkel include Volkswagen, Allianz and Deutsche Bank according to the German daily Bild, which carried a headline Friday that read: "Do our companies not care about Hong Kong's freedom?"

    Press access to her visit was unusually tight, with a number of members of the Beijing foreign press corps, including AFP, unable to get accreditations for the event. Chinese officials cited a lack of space due to a large contingent of journalists accompanying Merkel.

    Prominent movement leader Joshua Wong and others recalled in an open letter published by top-selling Bild daily Wednesday that Merkel grew up in the communist police state of East Germany.

    "You have first-hand experience of the terrors of a dictatorial government," the letter read.

    They also warned that "Germany should be on its guard before doing business with China, as China does not comply with international law and has repeatedly broken its promises".

    Hong Kong has endured dozens of sometimes violent pro-democracy protests triggered by opposition to a now-withdrawn law that would have allowed extradition to mainland China.

    A number of Chinese dissidents have been given refuge in Germany, including dissident-artist Ai Weiwei.

    Hồng Kông: Công luận phẫn uất vì cảnh sát bắn vào người biểu tình
    Thanh Hà

    Hôm nay 03/10/2019 sinh viên Hồng Kông tuần hành trước khu ký túc xá, phản đối cảnh sát dùng đạn thật bắn vào người biểu tình, làm một thanh niên suýt tử vong.

    Tư pháp Hồng Kông mở phiên tòa đầu tiên khởi tố thanh niên nói trên về tội "gây bạo động" và "tấn công cảnh sát". Phẫn uất của công luận Hồng Kông ngày càng dồn về phía cảnh sát.

    Thông tín viên RFI từ Hồng Kông, Florence de Changy tường trình về một buổi tập hợp tối hôm 02/10/2019 :

    "Cuộc tập hợp đã được tổ chức tại một sân vận động, có hàng rào bao quanh. Chung quanh là các tòa nhà cao tầng, thương xá ngay tại trung tâm quận Thuyền Loan (Tsuen Wan), một trong những khu vực mới được xây dựng trên lãnh thổ Hồng Kông.

    Người biểu tình giương cao biểu ngữ ''Đừng bắn vào con em chúng tôi''. Nghệ sĩ sân khấu Monkey giải thích lý do có mặt tại đây, vì "chính tại nơi này, một thanh niên bị cảnh sát bắn vào ngực, chỉ cách tim có 3 cm, anh ta suýt chết. Vào lúc 4 giờ chiều, cảnh sát Hồng Kông họp báo và giải thích bắn vào thanh niên này là một việc làm "đúng". Do vậy tất cả chúng tôi có mặt tại đây và quyền lực là ở đây.

    Amanda, một giáo viên tiểu học cho biết là như tất cả mọi người dân Hồng Kông, cô cảm thấy cần tham gia cuộc biểu tình lần này. Amanda nói: "Những gì đang diễn ra hoàn toàn không thể chấp nhận được. Cảnh sát và chính quyền phải nhận lấy trách nhiệm. Bắn vào người biểu tình là vi phạm tất cả các luật lệ của Hồng Kông".

    Nhiều cuộc tập hợp khác diễn ra rải rác trên lãnh thổ Hồng Kông. Tương tự như ở Thuyền Loan, mỗi cuộc tập hợp này đều kết thúc bằng những vụ đụng độ với cảnh sát. Ngày càng có nhiều người dân Hồng Kông đòi giải tán toàn bộ lực lượng cảnh sát. Họ không còn tin tưởng chút nào vào lực lượng an ninh Hồng Kông."

    In one scene, Randy is seen standing in the rain while a guard gives him an electric shock."I am a proud member of the Communist Party," Randy then reads from a card. "The party is more important than the individual."

    He then sees a guard shoot a prisoner in the head, before being sent to an overcrowded cell where he starts a conversation with Winnie the Pooh and Piglet.

    "Some people said Pooh looked like the Chinese president, so we're illegal in China now," says Piglet.

    "What kind of madhouse is this?" replies Randy.

    'LeBron stands for money': Hong Kong protesters burn James jerseys



    Protestors in Hong Kong have burned LeBron James jerseys after the NBA star said that freedom of speech can lead to “a lot of negative”.

    James made his comments after the fallout between the NBA and China over the anti-government protests in Hong Kong. The lucrative relationship between the league and China has been damaged since the Houston Rockets general manager, Daryl Morey, tweeted in support of the protestors earlier this month. Morey subsequently deleted the tweet but China has threatened to cut ties with the NBA, and some Chinese companies have backed out of broadcasts and sponsorship deals.

    On Tuesday, a group of around 200 gathered on courts amid Hong Kong’s high-rise buildings, chanting support for Morey and obscene epithets about James. One person threw a ball at a photo of James while others burned and trampled on jerseys bearing his name.

    “People are angry,” said James Lo, a web designer who runs a Hong Kong basketball fan page on Facebook. He said he’s already received a video from a protester that showed him burning a No 23 jersey bearing James’ name.

    On Monday, James was asked about the strained relationship between the NBA and China. “I don’t want to get into a ... feud with Daryl but I believe he wasn’t educated about the situation at hand and he spoke,” James said. “Just be careful what we tweet ... even though, yes, we do have freedom of speech. But there can be a lot of negative that comes with that too.” James later said he meant Morey wasn’t educated on the repercussions of the tweet rather than the situation in Hong Kong. Law enforcement have used live ammunition on civilians after months of demonstrations in Hong Kong.

    Lo said James’s comments had infuriated many in Hong Kong. “Students, they come out like every weekend,” said Lo. “They’ve got tear gassed and then they got gun-shot, like every weekend. Police beating students and then innocent people, like every day. And then he just comes up with something [like] that. We just can’t accept that.”



    NBA players weren’t made available before or after recent pre-season games in China, which CCTV didn’t broadcast, and several companies and state-run offices reportedly severed their ties with the NBA over Morey’s tweet and the league’s response to it.

    Protesters said James was guilty of double standards, because he has used his influence as a star athlete to promote social causes in the United States. “Please remember, all NBA players, what you said before: ‘Black lives matter.’ Hong Kong lives also matter!” one of the protesters, 36-year-old office worker William Mok, said as he addressed the crowd.

    Yahoo Sports estimates that the dispute with China could depress the league’s salary cap – and therefore NBA wages – by up to 15% next season. Some protestors thought James’s comments had more to do with money than politics. “James was trying, you know, to take a side, on the China side, which is like ridiculous,” said Aaron Lee, a 36-year-old marketing director. “He was being honest, financially. Financial is money. Simple as that. LeBron James stands for money. Period.”

    One NBA player has appeared to voice support for the protestors in Hong Kong. The Boston Celtics’ Enes Kanter, who is exiled from his native Turkey due to his opposition to the country’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, tweeted a list of issues he has faced due to his political beliefs. They include seeing his father imprisoned and having his passport revoked. At the end of the tweet he wrote “FREEDOM IS NOT FREE”.

    Anh này có thể chỉ có ý khuyên người này người kia nên thận trọng khi bày tỏ ý kiến cá nhân trên i-tờ-nét, tuy nhiên chính mình lại phạm vào cái điều mình đương dạy đời.

    Nếu đã đồng ý ai cũng có quyền tự do ngôn luận thì càng cần phải phê phán những chính phủ độc tài cấm tự do ngôn luận. Vụ Tàu cộng trừng phạt kinh tế các đội bát kẹt bon Mỹ vì chính kiến của một thành viên rõ ràng là phản tự do ngôn luận.

    Ai cũng dám chống những điều xấu nhưng lại rất ngại nêu đích danh những kẻ làm điều xấu và sẳn sàng để cho những kẻ làm điều xấu nấp ở phía sau sự im lặng của mình.

    Im lặng là đồng chí.
