New legislature inaugurates Taiwan Parliament Group for Hong Kong

New legislature inaugurates Taiwan Parliament Group for Hong Kong

2024-03-29

DPP lawmaker Huang Jie inaugurated the Taiwan Parliament Group for Hong Kong on Friday. Amid China’s growing attempts to undermine Hong Kong’s freedoms, Huang called on the Mainland Affairs Council to prepare for any contingency and help Hong Kongers living in Taiwan integrate into Taiwanese society. Meanwhile a Hong Konger noted that China’s infiltration tactics in Taiwan were extremely similar to ones the Communist power had adopted in Hong Kong. He called on Taiwanese to cherish their democracy and offer support for Hong Kong.

The newly-elected Legislative Yuan has once again inaugurated another caucus, the Parliament Group for Hong Kong. DPP lawmaker Huang Jie has succeeded former lawmaker Freddy Lim as its head.

Huang Jie
DPP legislator
Article 23 of Hong Kong’s Basic Law has severely strengthened restrictions on the Hong Kong people’s freedom. In face of the future situation in Hong Kong, I hope that Taiwan’s Mainland Affairs Council will be prepared to help Hong Kongers integrate into life in Taiwan. We need to let people in Hong Kong know that Taiwan stands with Hong Kong.

Freddy Lim
Former legislator
The group was established in the last legislative term. When Joshua Wong came to me, we didn’t only discuss democracy and freedom, we also discussed esports and industries and how lawmakers from both sides could cooperate to promote various kinds of industrial exchanges.

Lim lamented that when the caucus was first established four years ago in the previous legislative term, the situation in Hong Kong was not as serious as it is now. Meanwhile Hong Kongers living in Taiwan are calling for Taiwan’s support, saying that even if the CPP controls the Hong Kong government and its Legislative Council, its people were working hard to resist China.

Sang Pu
Taiwan Hong Kong Association
The CCP’s ways of infiltrating Taiwan are actually very similar to the tactics it has used to infiltrate Hong Kong.

Lee Li-chen
Deputy MAC minister
We have revised the rules for Hong Kong and Macao residents to study in Taiwan. We’ve also revised laws on the recruitment and employment of foreign professionals, and established an office for exchange of Taiwan-Hong Kong services. Through inter-ministerial meetings, we hope to integrate the central government with local governments, public and private partners, and set up a network that can assist Hong Kongers living in Taiwan.

In the face of authoritarianism, Taiwan and Hong Kong are in similar situations. In addition to taking Hong Kong’s treatment as a warning, concerned Taiwanese are continuing to lend a helping hand to help Hong Kong go through its darkest moment.

"台灣國會香港友好連線"成立 黃捷籲:珍惜.保護民主

2024-03-29

民進黨立委黃捷成立第十一屆立法院的"台灣國會香港友好連線",她指出香港民主情勢越來越嚴峻,呼籲陸委會隨時做好準備,並協助已經在台灣的香港人融入台灣社會。在台香港人指出,中國對台滲透的手法,跟對香港非常相似,呼籲台灣人珍惜、保護民主,也給還在民間努力的香港人更多支援。

先新一屆立法院再度成立"台灣國會香港友好連線",民進黨立委黃捷從前立委林昶佐手中接棒,擔任會長。

[[立委(民) 黃捷]]
“香港基本法23條裡面,已經嚴重加強對香港人自由的箝制,面對香港未來的局勢,我也希望台灣的陸委會做好準備,在台灣的港人,可以幫助她們融入台灣的生活,讓香港知道,我們台灣會與香港同在”

[[前立委 林昶佐]]
“上一屆,剛成立,黃之鋒來找我的時候,我們不是只有討論民主自由,我們在討論雙方電競、產業,各種產業上面,未來兩邊委員可以怎樣藉由立法機構合作,推進各種產業交流”

林昶佐感嘆,4年前他辦成立大會時,香港的情勢不像今天這麼嚴峻。在台港人呼籲,即便中共掌控了港府跟立法局,民間仍在努力,需要台灣的支援。

[[台灣香港協會理事長 桑普]]
“中共對台灣的滲透方法,其實跟一直以來對香港的滲透方法非常類似”

[[陸委會副主委 李麗珍]]
“我們也修正,港澳居民來台就學辦法,也修正外國專業人士人員延攬跟雇用法,成立了台港服務交流辦公室,透過跨部會,希望結合中央地方,公私夥伴,聯繫網絡協助在台港人”

面對極權,台港有類似的地緣處境,除了以對方的遭遇當成警惕,有識之士持續伸出援手,希望幫助香港走過最黑暗的時刻。
