詹滿生籲撐港政治犯 Senator Jim Munson call for support HK political prisoners

參議員詹滿生(Jim Munson)在議會發表演說講述香港情況,7分12秒開始談及本土民主前線發言人梁天琦。他說:「很遺憾地其中一個我認識的人在監獄。梁天琦,我在2017年7月見過天琦,當時在本人於國會山莊的辦公室。他是個易話為的好人。很快,像我們一樣,他談及他有幾珍惜加拿大核心價值:人權、平等、多元。兩年前在一個香港保衞戰紀念儀式中,他表達了對退伍加拿大軍人的敬意。這推動了他,當他談及此事時也推動了我。二戰時我並無投身該處。他要求與我合照,並在推特上載。他承諾繼續在我們共同目標上奮鬥。」

Senator Jim Munson talked about Hong Kong affair, and started talking about Edward Leung Tin Kei, Spokesman of Hong Kong Indigenous.
“Sadly, I know one of the man who in jail. Edward Leung, I met Edward at June 2017, in my senator office at parliament hill, and he was a soft-spoken yet kind person. Soon on, look like most of us. He talked about how much he treasured the Canadian values of human rights, equality, democracy, and multiculturalism. He expressed his gratitude and honour of meeting our Canadian veterans two years ago, in a battle of Hong Kong commemoration ceremony. That moved him. And it moved me when he talked about it. I didn’t serve that at that part of the world in the Second World War. As an off of the case, he wanted to have a photo – we took together –  for Twitter, and promised to keep on working on our common goals. “

「之後天琦返港,並繼續為香港爭取人權與自由中擔當支持及領導的角色。梁天琦,正如我們所見,現在身陷囹圄。在2018年他被判六年監禁,僅僅因為他參與示威,以及他公開支持民主與獨立。諸位參議員,我感到異常震驚。他早前還好端端,很沉痛地,本月初我卻聽到他被送到甲級監獄,最高設防的監獄,專為最危險罪犯而設的監獄。實在無理由,這實在無理由去如此對待一個非暴力民主鬥士。」

“Edward returned to Hong Kong, and continued to his widely support and leadership, commitment to the human rights and freedoms. Edward Leung, as we have seen, is now in jail. He was sentenced to six years in prison, in 2018, for his participation in a demonstration, and for his public support in democracy and independence. Senators, I was shocked by his well-being yesterday, and I was extremely upset when learnt earlier in this month, he was moved to a Category A – maximum security – prison which was reserved for the most dangerous offenders. This is no place… this is no place for a non-violent pro-democratic activist. “

「旺角2016年示威裡梁天琦的真實故事,你們可以看紀錄片《地厚天高》。時代雜誌曾就近期示威第一身感受提到這電影,並將梁天琦列入百位拯救未來明日之星當中。當香港情況持續發展,我常常想起天琦,與及他的家庭,我見過他們。加強來自加拿大參議院的支援,我希望爾等一起參與,一起支持那些活在香港鐵窗下的人,這並非他們應該身處的地方。 」

“Edward’s live story of his active involvement in the Mong Kong protest in 2016. The details were in the documentary “Lost in the Fumes”. Time Magazine noted the film for the essential feel of the participants of the recent protests. And the recognized Edward, on the list of 100 next rising stars, is expected to save the future. As the situation in Hong Kong continues, I often think of Edward, and his family, and I’ve seen them – strengthened support from the senators of Canada, and I hope you do too – help to strengthen support to all of those, who are behind bars in Hong Kong. They don’t deserve to be there! “
