1967.6.7英国驻华代办处被住华外国人冲击

196765日第三次中东战争发生后,67日下午440,数十名在北京的所谓外国专家(包括阿拉伯人,非洲人,美国人,甚至还有英国人,如爱泼斯坦夫人邱茉莉)冲击了英国驻华代办处,抗议英国政府在战争中的角色。他们闯进代办处的院子,打破很多玻璃,毁坏花栏,还有人冲进代办处的前厅,毁坏女王画像并撕毁英国国旗。中国记者对此事进行了摄像,警察也完全没有干预此次冲击活动。代办处立刻打电话给中国外交部礼宾司告知此事,并要求中方采取有效措施制止类似行为再次发生,但外交部回复说“革命群众的行动完全是合法的”。

英国外交部Rogers当天就紧急召见中国驻英临时代办沈平表示抗议,并保留追索赔偿的权利。沈平显然没有接到中国官方对此事的指示,表示既然英国支持美国和以色列在中东发动侵略战争,那么革命群众就有权采取抗议行动反对侵略战争。Rogers驳斥说这根本是两回事,中国政府有责任保护外交使团,这和中国政府在国际问题上的立场毫无关系。英方对中国驻英外交人员和馆舍给予正当的保护,那么中方也应该对英国驻华外交使团给予相同的待遇。

FLASH PEKING TO FOREIGN OFFICE
Telno 654        7    June   1967
UNCLASSIFIED

Addressed to Foreign Office telegram No. 65of 7 June Repeated for information to Washington

After a day of mass demonstrations outside my house and office in connexion with the Middle East war, at 4.40 p.m. a motley crowd of so-called foreign experts entered the office courtyard and proceeded to break many of the windows on the ground floor as well as the flower pots outside. Some broke into the front hall and destroyed The Queen’s portrait. They also hauled down and tore up the flag. Mr. Whitney went outside to receive a protest and they then went away. No one was injured, though Mr. Whitney and Mr. Blishen who accompanied him were struck.

2.   The group included Arabs, Africans, Americans, and even British (I spotted Mrs. Epstein nee Fairfax-Cholmondeley). There were also some Chinese Press men with cameras. The police made no, (repeat no) attempt to interfere.

3.   We telephoned Protocol Department to report what had occurred and request effective police measures to prevent a repetition. Their reply was that "the action of the revolutionary masses was completely justified".

IMMEDIATE   FOREIGN OFFICE TO PEKING
TELNO.460       JUNE, 1967   (FED)
UNCLASSIFIED
ADDRESSED TO PEKING TELEGRAM NO 460 OF 7/6 REPEATED FOR INFORMATION PRIORITY TO HONG KONG AND ROUTINE TO WASHINGTON.

MR. RODGERS SUMMONED THE CHINESE ACTING CHARGE D'AFFAIRES ON 7 JUNE AND DELIVERED THE STRONGEST PROTEST ABOUT THE WAY IN WHICH A DISORDERLY MOB HAD BROKEN INTO THE PREMISES OF OUR MISSION IN PEKING IN A MOST SHAMEFUL WAY, SMASHED WINDOWS DESTROYED A PORTRAIT OF THE QUEEN AND TORN UP THE UNION FLAG. TWO MEMBERS OF THE MISSION WERE MANHANDLED. THE CHINESE POLICE ON DUTY HAD MADE NO ATTEMPT WHATSOEVER TO INTERVENE. WHEN THE PROTOCOL DEPARTMENT OF THE FOREIGN MINISTRY WAS INFORMED OF WHAT HAD OCCURRED, THEY FAILED TO GIVE GUARANTEES OF PROTECTION AND TRIED INSTEAD TO CLAIM THAT THESE ACTIVITIES WERE QUOTE COMPLETELY JUSTIFIED UNQUOTE. SUCH A FAILURE TO PROVIDE PROTECTION FOR A DIPLOMATIC MISSION WAS QUITE OUT OF KEEPING WITH THE NORMAL CONDUCT OF RELATIONS BETWEEN TWO COUNTRIES. WE RESERVED THE RIGHT TO DEMAND FULL COMPENSATION.
WE HERE WERE PREPARED TO GIVE DUE PROTECTION TO THE CHINESE OFFICE AND ITS PERSONNEL. WE EXPECTED THAT THE SAME SHOULD BE DONE IN PEKING.
4.   SHEN P'ING (WHO WAS CLEARLY WITHOUT INSTRUCTIONS)SAID THAT HE HAD NO INFORMATION ABOUT THESE INCIDENTS. THE QUOTE THE U.S. IMPERIALISTS AND THElR STOOGES ISRAEL UNQUOTE HAD LAUNCHED AN AGGRESSIVE WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST WITH BRITISH SUPPORT. THE CHINESE GOVT. HAD MADE ITS SUPPORT OF THE ARABS QUITE CLEAR IN A STATEMENT. THE ACTIONS OF THE REVOLUTIONARY PEOPLE IN OPPOSING AN AGGRESSIVE WAR WERE QUITE JUSTIFIED. HE REJECTED THE PROTEST.
5.   MR. RODGERS SAID THAT IT WAS QUITE IRRELEVANT TO TALK ABOUT CHINESE GOVT. POLICY TOWARDS THE MIDDLE EAST WAR. THE POINT AT ISSUE WAS THAT THE CHINESE GOVT. HAD COMPLETELY FAILED TO GIVE PROPER PROTECTION TO A DIPLOMATIC MISSION. THIS HAD NO CONNEXION WHATSOEVER WITH ANY QUESTION OF CHINESE GOVT.POLICY. WE EXPECTED THAT PROTECTION WOULD BE GIVEN REGARDLESS OF THE POLICY OF THE CHINESE GOVT.
4. THE PRESS ARE BEING GIVEN THE SUBSTANCE OF THE ABOVE.
