停止種族抹黑  理性討論難民事件

日期:2016 年 4 月 11 日

我們非常關注近日社會上針對香港難民的不盡不實、不負責任之言論。這些言論煽動香港市民對難民及少數族裔的恐懼和敵意,令原本多元的香港社會日漸撕裂。若任由這些負面標籤和仇視心態繼續放任,只會令香港市民的排外情緒及社會撕裂越趨嚴重。

我們實在不忍心香港的和諧繼續受到踐踏,不能讓難民及少數族裔議題繼續被誇大,亦不應把對任何一個群體的歧視合理化。我們懇請社會各方冷靜下來,不要訴諸恐懼, 應理性地面對難民及少數族裔議題,並就問題尋找適切的出路及解決方法。

我們明白社會關注尋求庇護申請的上升趨勢,審核機制明顯地遭到某些人士濫用,政府固然須正視這種情況,我們也促請各方實事求是,客觀理解事情脈絡。實情是,香港的難民人口並不多,並沒有所謂的難民危機,當局無須訴諸非常手段以「解決」問題。反之,我們需要正視香港政府「統一審核機制(Unified Screening Mechanism, 簡稱 USM)」的不足之處,實應加快審核程序,方能治本。這些問題複雜,我們需要的是理性討論,尋找建設性的解決方法,而非訴諸流言蜚語、互相指責。

社會上有些意見,例如退出聯合國《酷刑公約》或設置難民營等,不僅倉猝草率,更違背國際法律。香港若退出《酷刑公約》,非但無法解決難民目前所面對的困境,反而將每一位香港人免予不人道、武力或殘忍待遇的人權保障一併犧牲。因此,我們務必捍衛和尊重國際法律。香港作為現代國際社會的一員,享有尊重文明社會的價值和 責任的聲譽,退出《酷刑公約》等同逼使香港這國際都會尷尬後退。

同樣地,設置難民營,把難民拘留是個苛刻且無必要的做法,一來浪費公帑, 二來不過將問題抽離社會實況,亦只會對一群已經處於弱勢的群體造成嚴重的傷害。世界上不少例子反映設置難民營把難民拘留的種種問題,聯合國難民署亦一再對各國設置難民營表示高度關注。

我們不容訴諸恐懼和短視近利的政治,侵蝕香港的人權與法治。我們不能對難民和少數族裔和負面描繪坐視不理。因此,我們呼籲社會各界,包括香港政府,一起合作,停止種族歧視及抹黑。
