RESPONSE TO THE PRO-BEIJING LEGISLATORS JOINT STATEMENT

We are dismayed by the misrepresentations and the inaccurate claims made by 39 pro-Beijing legislators in a joint statement on 15 June. In condemning our recent visit to Taiwan, their allegations are inconsistent with the reality, especially the idea that the meeting endangered Hong Kong people's well-being by encouraging Hong Kong and Taiwan independence. 

The Taiwan Congressional Hong Kong Caucus (hereafter the Caucus) is formed by the Legislative Yuan of Taiwan, comprising the ruling Democratic Progressive Party and the New Power Party. The Caucus is a platform to facilitate legitimate parliamentary exchange -- a norm in international political landscape. Foreign politicians also often come to Hong Kong for the same purpose. Moreover, the platform does not look into sovereignty issues. 

The pro-Beijing lawmakers ought to step out from their delusion which is lacking in factual evidence, and perhaps review the fragility of patriotic rhetoric if they feel that such normal exchanges can threaten them. It is believed that these attempts are only made to distract the public from the business in the Legislative Council, including the UGL inquiry and the controversy of various public works.

香港眾志回應建制派議員聯合聲明
對於早前由39名建制議員聯署的聲明歪曲事實,並作出不實指控,香港眾志就此表示驚訝。聲明中指控我們與台灣相關人士會面會鼓吹港、台獨立並危害港人福祉,此等指控可謂完全偏離事實。

「台灣國會關注香港連線」(下稱「連線」)由台灣立法院成立,成員包括了執政民主進步黨及時代力量。成立「連線」用意為促進港台雙邊立法機關交流,屬於正常外交關係。以交流名義到訪香港的外國政客亦司空見慣。我們必須強調,主權問題並非「連線」的討論範圍。

建制派議員應停止憑空想像,對正常交流作出失實指控,並期望建制派諸位能重新檢視該等脆弱的愛國論調是否站得住腳。建制派在如此時機發表聲明,無疑令人懷疑他們試圖混淆視聽,將公眾注意力從UGL 事件及其他具爭議性的立法會事務分散,企圖蒙混過關。
