勞權人士遭圍捕 至少4人被刑拘


上星期,12月3日至5日,廣東省的勞工非政府組織受到一次來自政府的殘酷打壓。至今已有至少4家勞工組織的工作人員及志願者被公安拘留及問話,涉及25人,當中7位勞工維權人士被拘留或被失蹤。「番禺打工族」的負責人曾飛洋、工作人員朱小梅、「佛山南飛雁」的負責人何曉波,以及勞權人士鄧小明4人被確認刑事拘留,他們委託的律師要求行使探視權利被多次拒絕。彭家勇、孟晗、湯建3人被公安帶走至今仍然行蹤不明。


中國近年一邊在國內強調『法治』,一邊對外強調文明和平崛起,執法部門卻濫用權力,以暴力和拘禁的手段打壓工人維權活動和恐嚇勞工機構,遏止中國工人實現勞動三權。關注勞工權利的團體及個人呼籲中國政府︰


1. 立即無條件釋放所有被拘留的勞權人士
2. 停止打壓勞工機構、工人維權代表及公民社會人士
3. 尊重及保障憲法賦予公民社會的發展空間與自由

Joint Statement


Free Chinese labour activists now!
End suppression of labour organizations!


At least four labour activists remain in criminal detention following a recent crackdown on labour organizations.
From 3 - 5 December, labour NGOs based in Guangdong province were targeted in a harsh and unexpected wave of detentions. At least four labour NGOs have been targeted and 25 NGO staff and volunteers have been detained and questioned by police, seven of whom either remain in detention or cannot be contacted. These include Panyu Workers’ Centre director Zeng Feiyang and staff member Zhu Xiaomei; Foshan Nanfeiyan Social Work Services Organization director He Xiaobo; labour activists Peng Jiayong, Deng Xiaoming, Meng Han, and Tang Jian. Four individuals - Zeng Feiyang, He Xiaobo, Zhu Xiaomei and Deng Xiaoming - are confirmed as being in detention.


The Chinese government purports to advance the “rule of law” within its borders and promotes the idea of a civilized and peaceful rise internationally. However, local governments abuse their power, using violence and arrests to repress and intimidate labour organizations, preventing Chinese workers from pursuing fundamental labour rights, including freedom of association and the right to strike and collective bargaining.


As organizations and individuals working labour rights, we call on the Chinese government to:
1. Immediately release all the aforementioned detained labour activists
2. Stop suppressing labour activists, labour organizations and civil society organizations.
3. Respect and protect the development and freedom of civil society as prescribed by China’s Constitution.
