2019 June 5th update: Ming Pao (with video), “【六四30年.短片】「天安門母親」成員張先玲講話全文

“今日(4日)是六四事件30年,也是一眾「天安門母親」在被監視下生活的30年,支聯會六四燭光悼念集會上播放「天安門母親」群體成員講話短片。以下是成員張先玲在北京所發表的講話。

尊敬的香港同胞們:
尊敬的歷年來從世界各地趕來參加維園燭光晚會的有良知的朋友們:

我們代表「天安門母親」群體向你們致以最崇高的敬意和衷心的感謝!

三十年來,維園的燭光陪伴著「天安門母親」們走過了坎坷的歷程,溫暖着我們的心!

天安門慘案已經過去了三十年。但那個血腥的夜晚,北京上空激烈的槍聲、坦克的橫衝直撞、穿梭的救護車、市民們為了保護學生對戒嚴部隊視死如歸的沿途攔截、鼎沸的人聲以及親人們最後的身影,至今,我們記憶猶新,永遠定格在我們的腦海裏,深深地刻在我們的心底。

我們痛苦過、悲傷過,如今巨大的悲痛已化為支撐我們抗爭的動力!

這樣血腥的慘案,和平時期動用軍隊在中國歷史上絕無僅有!劊子手們將永遠被釘在歷史的恥辱柱上,決不是一句輕鬆的「政治風波」就能夠抹去!更不是所謂「動亂」「暴亂」就可以作為軍隊鎮壓的理由,這樣的謊言是掩蓋不了血寫的事實!

三十年來,「天安門母親」群體不畏強權,櫛風沐雨、砥礪前行。追尋遇難者的蹤跡,為的就是要討還公道,就是要說出真相、拒絕遺忘、呼喚良知,尋求正義!

雖然這三十年來,我們找到的遇難者只是冰山一角,但僅此一角已能證明「六四」鎮壓的殘酷!這樣一次由執政黨主導、政府下令,調動大批野戰軍乘著裝甲車、軍車、坦克,真槍實彈,在首都街頭殺害手無寸鐵的、和平示威的學生和市民!這是甚麼行為?是不折不扣的草芥人命!殺人者竟是國家的正規軍!這是政府指使下的殺人!是國家的犯罪!

三十年來,「天安門母親」們本着和平、理性的原則,堅持:真相、賠償、問責三項訴求,多次就「六四」慘案通過法律解決向政府提出對話,但執政當局一直不敢面對,不敢回答。卻在公開場合用一句「黨和政府已有定論。」的囈語,作為遁詞。這樣一件在全世界眾目睽睽之下發生的慘案,豈是少數領導人一句話就能將事實抹殺掉的。歷史證明:真相終將戰勝謊言,正義必將戰勝邪惡!

雖然,「天安門母親」群體中已有五十六位難屬離去。但我們活著的人,將一如既往,承擔起逝者的責任,不管路有多崎嶇,我們將奮力向前!

感謝香港市民和朋友們對我們的支持!”

不設劃位 – 80元首入場爭位坐? – 蘋果日報

July 27, 2012

誤導的新聞是很難寫的,但“蘋果日報”誤導讀者的技術高超。一篇原本有內容有內涵的英國《衞報》(Guardian)文章一經“蘋果日報”的魔術手,輕變重,低轉高,左至右,東倒西,誤導到讀者看得高高興興,何樂而不為?當然,要得知全面,能分辨是非,能分輕重,能分高低,還是看英文原文才安心放心,安全可靠。

不設劃位 – 80元首入場爭位坐

今次倫奧開幕禮會有6萬人入場觀看,當中包括80名國家元首親身見證這場體壇盛事,但基於保安理由,這批領導人一律要坐官方提供的巴士到場館,而場館座位更是先到先得,隨時出現爭位坐的尷尬情況。
英國外交部日前表示,倫奧開幕禮會有破紀錄120名外國領袖出席,但截至前日(周四)落實赴會的只有約80人,人數跟上屆京奧開幕式相若,當中包括美國第一夫人米歇爾、俄羅斯總理梅德韋杰夫、土耳其總理埃爾多安( Recep Tayyip Erdogan)、法國總理艾羅( Jean-Marc Ayrault)、巴西總統羅塞夫( Dilma Rousseff)及瑞典皇室成員等。
開幕禮前各國領袖會各自乘車到白金漢宮,出席英女皇所設的宴會,但基於保安理由和奧運傳統,宴會後他們不能分開離去,要在白金漢宮外集合,一起坐官方提供的巴士前往開幕禮會場,有專人會記錄誰人在車上,「以確保沒人留在白金漢宮廁所」,而保鑣會乘坐其他巴士尾隨。
但主辦當局並沒在會場劃定座位,採取先到先得方式,這班貴賓入場時可能要鬥快爭靚位,甚至出現不咬弦的領袖坐在一起的尷尬場面。開幕禮結束後,各領袖會坐巴士到一個秘密地點,轉乘豪華房車回酒店。

Chris Patten (彭定康) to be named new chairman of the BBC Trust

February 20, 2011

For the record. See Feb 20, 2011 UK Guardian “Chris Patten for the BBC? Good work, Jeremy. Now for Rupert…”, and “Chris Patten: The Tory Everyman returns to the top“.

See also Variety, RTHKMirror and ITV.

***

Feb 25, 2011 Update: Looks like it is almost official now, as the MP committee has not formal power to block the appointment. UK Guardian, “Lord Patten confirmed as ‘preferred candidate’ for BBC Trust chairman – David Cameron approves appointment and Patten now faces a pre-appointment hearing on 10 March

22 Feb, 2011 Update: Here is an old video clip. Still interesting to watch. “Frost Over The World – Chris Patten – 29 Jun 07


Lord Patten 彭定康 – BBC Trust chairman ?

February 18, 2011

Here is an excerpt from UK Guardian, “Lord Patten expected to be named BBC Trust chairman” (emphasis added). [Kempton: To some people, Lord Patten is known as the last governor of Hong Kong.]

Lord Patten‘s pitch to win the job of BBC Trust chairman was simple – give me the job and I will stand up to both the government of the day and the organisation itself, if necessary.

It was exactly what the culture secretary, Jeremy Hunt, wanted to hear – evidence of strong-minded independence, which would allow him to say “this is not a political appointment” even though Patten is a former Conservative cabinet minister.

Now Patten’s name sits with David Cameron for approval – having been put forward by Hunt – and insiders said on Friday afternoon that the prime minister’s consent was expected to be a formality next week.

That would propel Patten into the £110,000-a-year, four-day a week role at a time when the public broadcaster has just asked for 20% cuts to meet the flat licence fee settlement imposed by the government last year.

Patten – aged 66 and currently chancellor of Oxford University – made it clear to both Hunt and an interview panel that he badly wanted the BBC job as the final act in a long career in politics and public life.

From Tory chairman to Hong Kong governor to academia – and now the expected chairmanship of the BBC Trust
