澳洲港人社交群组遭举报违反港区国安法 澳洲香港各业联盟批评制造“白色恐怖”

港区国安法通过后,不但大大限制了香港本土的民主运动,就连在海外生活和居住的港人都倍感压力。近日,澳洲多家媒体报导,有居住在澳洲的人在香港警察的脸书页面上举报澳洲香港人的社交群组涉嫌违反港区国安法。SBS援引其中一个群组管理人形容,有人利用港区国安法制造“白色恐怖”,令所有人都恐惧。

周五(10日),澳洲香港各业联盟发布新闻稿,谴责上述举报行为,并称该做法“严重威胁及破坏澳洲的言论自由,制造白色恐怖”。澳洲香港各业联盟呼吁澳洲政府,调查这类破坏澳洲民主社会的行为,处分涉及外国势力的违法行为并且剥夺其澳洲居留权。

澳洲港人网上群组被举报 澳洲言论自由面临威胁

澳洲互联网上逾万人的两个香港人社交群组,最近被人向香港警方举报,指涉嫌违反香港新近实施的“港区国安法”,要求香港警方对这些人士入境香港时进行处分。这项举报已经立即在澳洲香港人社交群组造成恶劣影响,“澳洲香港各业联盟”发言人批评这样的举报行为,严重威胁及破坏澳洲的言论自由,制造白色恐怖。

澳洲的香港人网上社交群组,7月8日疯传图片,图片中显示有人向香港警方网页举报澳洲的两大社交群组,指控群组中“很多人散播憎恨言论,不断漠视新近实施的国安法”,“很多香港学生只是短暂停留在澳洲,最终会返回香港,因为违法应该受到惩处。”

这项举报被发现之后,在网上已经立即有人批评此举违反言论自由,如果不能接受言论自由,举报者应该离开澳洲。 

但举报者看到这反驳,立即向香港警方再举报提出这批评的人士,以及举报澳洲网上另一港人社交群组,并自称向香港警方作出举报,是其本身的“言论自由”。

被向香港警方举报的两个澳洲香港人网上社交群组,一个已经成立近八年,成员高达一万四千多人。另一个群组则成员一万人,后者因为被举报,已经把社群从“公开”,转为“私人”以保障成员安全。

“澳洲香港各业联盟”批评这样的举报,严重威胁及破坏澳洲的言论自由,甚至影响澳洲国民及持澳洲居留签证者,踏足香港的人身安全。发言人呼吁澳洲政府,调查这类破坏澳洲民主社会的行为,处分涉及外国势力的违法行为并且剥夺其澳洲居留权。

“澳洲香港各业联盟”上月在全澳收集了七百七十多个签名,包括来自商业、地产、工程、运输、教育、医护、传媒、资讯科技等各行各业居澳港人及支持者, 向澳洲总理、外交部长、移民部长等递交公开信,指出北京推出“港区国安法”违反了中英联合声明,促请澳洲政府重新检讨涉及澳洲与香港、澳洲与中国大陆之间的有关协议,并且制订应变措施,增加香港移民配额等。

“澳洲香港各业联盟”欢迎澳洲总理7月9日宣布帮助香港人的有关签证措施,欢迎澳洲政府宣布搁置澳洲与香港之间的引渡协议。

 Australian Hong Kong online social groups were snitched!

Australia’s free speech under attack!

In Australia, two online social groups with over 24 thousand Hong Kong background members have been tipped-off to the Hong Kong police. The whisperers alleged members in the social groups have violated Hong Kong’s newly implemented National Security Law and requested the Hong Kong Police to arrest those members if they ever set foot in Hong Kong. The Australian Hong Kong Professionals Alliance (AHKPA) spokesperson criticized the snitching behaviour as it is threatening and destroying the freedom of speech in Australia and creating “CCP Terror” among the communities.

On July 8, the Australian Hong Kong online social groups posted images of the tip-off from the HK police website. In the pictures, the whisperer suggested that the social groups are “spreading hate speech and are in fact continuing to ignore the new National Security Law”, the whisperer also went on about prosecutions most HK students are on temporary visas, they should be punished on their return to HK.

These comments have drawn a lot of attention in the online communities and some criticized the violation of free speech in Australia and some suggested the whisperer should leave Australia if they could not the concept of free speech and liberty.

The criticisms have led to another report by the whisperer to the HK police of another online social group. The whisperer then immediately mocked the responders, describing the reports as “free speech” rather than censorship.

Both compromised social groups are intended to provide a platform for Hong Kong Australians or visa holders to socialise, exchange ideas and share life experience in Australia. One of the social groups was founded 8 years ago with over 14 thousand members. The other has 10 thousand members and has recently changed its privacy setting from “public” to “private” in order to protect members’ personal details and safety.

AHKPA censures the behaviours of the whisperer. Their actions are undermining, threatening and destroying Australia’s freedom of speech as well as the safety of Australian citizens and visa holders. The AHKPA appeals to the Australian government for an investigation into such malignant behaviour, the foreign interference in our democratic society and the fact that the whisperers have rejected the values, rules and norms of Australia, and therefore shouldn’t benefit from membership of its citizenry.

Last month, AHKPA sent an open letter with over 700 signatures to the Australian Prime Minister, Minister of Foreign Affairs and MPs. It pointed out that Beijing Central Government has breached the Sino-British Joint Declaration when it introduced the National Security Law. Due to the new legislations, we urged the Australian government for more actions concerning the possible threats from foreign interference and formulate contingency measures through revision and assessment on the validity of official documents made between Australia and Hong Kong, as well as between Australia and PR China.

AHKPA welcomes the announcements by the Prime Minister Scott Morrison on the 9th July that Australia would suspend its extradition agreement with HK in response to the NSL and extend temporary visas for Hong Kong people in the country.
