新婦女協進會:关注大陆女权组织被强制关闭



感謝大家參與在三月及四月期間「要求中國政府釋放女權人士」的全球連線行動(包括簽名及到各國領使館的請願行動等)。事件引起國際震驚及關注,最終在各方的努力下,五位女權人士終於獲釋回家,我們其後亦繼續跟進他們的無罪確定。事件顯示今天無論在那一個地方推動女權運動,都必須建立強而有力的全球結盟作為後盾,作為互相支援的平台。
 
近日,有關由武嶸嶸創立的杭州蔚之鳴被迫無奈關閉一事,我們懇請大家關注。中國政府近來持續對國內爭取女性權益團體的打壓,使婦女權益工作進入寒冬。2014年成立的蔚之鳴一直推動婦女就業機會平等、防止性騷擾、反對對婦女的暴力倡導、媽媽社群面臨的社會家庭雙重壓力等問題。自中國政府拘押五位女權行動者之後,中心運作為此而被迫終止。她們自獲釋後,仍然受到公安的無理審訊及不人道對待。最終在巨大壓力下,被迫作出關閉蔚之鳴的決定。作為關注婦女、性小眾、性別平等及勞工權益的團體及個人,務必團結為事件發聲及表達我們的關注和憂慮。
 
我們墾請大家發信給聯合國、你們的政府以及相關機構網絡,表達大家的關注,和提出以下訴求:
  1. 促請中國政府立即無條件終止對五位女權行動者的調查及審訊
  2. 停止對婦女NGO及女權捍衛者的滋擾及打壓
  3. 與國內民間團體攜手合作推動性別平權
 
聯合國將會與中國政府合作於九月份主辦婦女大會,我們相信是一個機會,各國政府及民間團體可以表達關注現時中國政府在內地NGO及女權捍衛者的滋擾及打壓。
 
為了讓大家交流訊息,請把你們的行動告知我們,你可以在以下的面書活動專頁發放相關資訊︰
 
讓我們一起守護性別平權,守護女權行動者的參與權利與自由。
 
感謝大家的關注。
 
新婦女協進會
 Dear friends and organizations from all over the world,
Thanks for joining the “Free the Chinese Feminists” Campaign to demand the China Government for immediate release of the detained five feminists in March and April.  The urgent global action and your enthusiastic support had made a powerful international outcry that put pressure on the China government and finally the release, though incomplete one, of the five women activists.  A strong global network to safeguard women activists not only in mainland but all over the world is necessary and important for women’s activism to flourish in alliance.

Today, we call for your attention to the recent shutdown of the WeiZhiming Center, a women’s rights organization linked to two of the five ex-detained Chinese feminists, Wu Rongrong and Zheng Churan.  According to Wu Rongrong, police interrogations and unreasonable investigations had left her no choice but to shut down the center which has, since 2014, been actively engaging in advocating feminist issues such as employment equality, sexual harassment prevention and to end violence against women.

We, as individual and concern groups for women, sexual minorities, gender equality, and workers’ human rights, need to stay in solidarity to give coalitions from all over the world a stronger voice.
 
To warn the Chinese authorities against further harassing the women's rights defenders, please express your concern by sending letters to the UN as well as your network to urge them exert pressure on the Chinese government for the following:
  1. drop all criminal charges against the five feminists and free them immediately and unconditionally;
  2. stop harassing the women activists and the advocacy NGOs including the WeiZhiming;
  3. work collaboratively with all grassroots NGOs to achieve gender equality;

We also would like to urge you and your network to write and alert your own government on the situation of the 5 feminists. Please ask your government to raise their concern on the case with the Chinese government either before OR in the Global Women’s Summit to be co-hosted by UN and China in September this year.  
 
Please do keep us informed of any action and work you and/or your organization have conducted to support the Chinese feminists for them to continue their good work in mainland China.  Please share your actions on our facebook event page https://www.facebook.com/events/822818634419975/ 
 
Stay in solidarity.   
The Association for the Advancement of Feminism
