「今天,有如他們在整個夏天的一連串示威活動,香港市民發表了一個激動人心的訊息給全世界:自由、正義和民主的夢是永遠不會被不公正和恐嚇熄滅的。

香港人民的非凡勇氣與一個懦弱的政府做成了鮮明的對比。這個政府拒絕尊重法治,還辜負了二十多年前所擔保的「一國兩制」架構。香港人應享有所承諾的真正自治,及香港基本法和國際協議所保障的全部權利。立法會最終必須採取早該採取的措施,從立即完全撤回廣泛否定的引渡法案開始,以達到香港人民合法的民主意願。

國會中的民主黨和共和黨議員與香港人團結一致,要求他們有實現充滿希望,自由和民主未來的權利。我們重申,Tom Lantos 人權委員會聯合主席國會議員 Jim McGovern 和國會議員 Chris Smith 呼籲特朗普政府暫停向香港警察部隊銷售彈藥和人群控制設備。

當我們回到華盛頓時,兩黨代表大會將開始推進香港人權和民主法案,並努力維護香港的民主自由和法治。」

 

原文:

“As they have all summer, today the people of Hong Kong are sending a stirring message to the world: the dreams of freedom, justice and democracy can never be extinguished by injustice and intimidation.

“The extraordinary outpouring of courage from the people of Hong Kong stands in stark contrast to a cowardly government that refuses to respect the rule of law or live up to the ‘one country, two systems’ framework which was guaranteed more than two decades ago.  The people of Hong Kong deserve the true autonomy that was promised, with the full rights guaranteed by the Hong Kong Basic Law and international agreements.  The Legislative Council must finally take long-overdue measures to meet the legitimate democratic aspirations of the Hong Kong people – starting with completely and immediately withdrawing the widely-repudiated extradition bill.

“Democrats and Republicans in Congress stand united with the people of Hong Kong in demanding the hopeful, free and democratic future that is their right.  We reiterate the call of the Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission Co-Chairs Congressman Jim McGovern and Congressman Chris Smith to the Trump Administration to suspend future sales of munitions and crowd control equipment to the Hong Kong police force.

“When we return to Washington, the bipartisan, bicameral Congress will begin our work to advance the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, and fight to preserve democratic freedoms and the rule of law in Hong Kong.”
