【共抗政府DQ歷史試題 守護思想自由 捍衛教育自主】 眾籌司法覆核考試局取消歷史試題決定 早前,教育局指控今屆DSE歷史科中有關中日歷史的試題「損害國民情感」、「答案只有弊沒有利」,並施壓考評局要求取消有關試題。多位保皇黨議員配合政府論調,持續對考評局施壓,考評局最終在5月22號在宣佈取消該歷史科題目,所有考生於該題所獲分數將會作廢。 為反抗中共及政權對學生和教育界的打壓,中學生行動籌備平台 (下稱 “平台”) 在上星期二(2/6)正式向高等法院提交司法覆核申請,覆核考評局刪除試題的決定。布穎琪大律師及譚俊傑大律師將會於是次司法覆核代表我方。 若教育局今次能以「政治正確」的因素,成功逼令考評局取消議題,現行的教育自主將會受到嚴重衝擊。除了現屆考生的成績受影響,損害整個歷史科考試的公正性,並有可能影響的國際認受性。更重要的是,此舉會在教育界內施加了白色恐怖,令老師們授課時會避開教育局的「思想禁區」,長遠而言會令課程內容受限於政權的喜好,並淪為政府傳聲筒,削弱了學生們獨立思考以及求實求真的能力。 由於司法覆核所需費用甚多,而敗訴後更需負擔對方的訟費及律師費,因此在得知考評局委聘了霍金路偉律師行(Hogan Lovells)、杜淦堃資深大律師、唐思佩大律師等「鑽石陣容」迎戰,而教育局亦有可能參與訴訟。因此律師團隊估算法律費用會很龐大,對方的法律費用將會超過100萬。為了保障申請人的訟費風險,我們動我們必需籌募一定金額,令願意承擔法律風險的考生在失利後不至於面對龐大債務。 在與律師團隊商議後,我們期望是次眾籌能籌得120萬港元,並將所有款項用於是次司法覆核官司上,有餘額則會捐贈予612人道救援基金。法庭已正式排期在7月2-3日展開聆訊,因此我們希望在未來兩星期便籌得以上款項,讓申請人以及法律團隊免受過大壓力。 教育塑造年輕人靈魂和意志的,要避免城市沉淪,必先捍衛教育自主,以及培育出學生有獨立品格和思考。我們期望大眾能與一眾學子攜手,共同對抗中共對教育界的極權入侵。 Let’s overturn the decision to cancel. . . . .

「撐社工.守護公義」眾籌 “Support Our Social Workers And Uphold Justice” Crowdfunding 眾籌目標﹕330萬訴訟費 根據「社會工作者註冊條例:工作守則」的基本價值觀及信念,社工有責任維護人權及促進社會公義,並從個人、家庭、社會和制度去看警察、抗爭者和整個運動。「香港社會工作者總工會」於2019年6月16日成立「陣地社工」,至今已出隊共53次,合共1195人次。透過社工本身的訓練有助我們明白和掌握警民雙方的背景和心理狀況,故能於抗爭現場保持冷靜去判斷形勢,繼而向警察作出不同的提醒和警告。眼前的抗爭者是活生生的人,警察即使是執行公務,也不能忽視市民的生命安危,不應濫用武力傷害或暴力對待市民或已被制服的被捕人士。同時,往往有非抗爭者的途人需要尋找離開路線,陣地社工為了避免警方傷及無辜,於是為他們伸出援手。我們亦透過不同渠道為受社區創傷影響的市民或被檢控人士提供情緒或實際支援,避免市民因憤怒或絕望而令思想、情感和行為走向極端。陣地社工於過去一年多在抗爭現場進行人道支援工作,就是努力「守護生命」和「捍衛人權」。 可是,我們5位社總陣地社工和1位社工復興運動社工,於過去一年基於認為生命比執法更重要,在抗爭現場捍衛人權和守護生命,因而受到不同程度的打壓和身體傷害。社工劉家棟被判阻差辦公罪成而正進行上訴,社工陳虹秀Jackie被控暴動,社工許麗明Ming被控襲警,社工Key被兩名警察以警棍扑頭,社工何詩敏和劉彥德被票控「限聚令」。我們決定除了繼續在抗爭現場進行人道支援工作外,亦會透過法庭裁決取回公道,確立社工於街頭守護公義的必要性和需要性。 6名社工訴訟的相關資料 1) 社工劉家棟阻差辦公罪成判囚一年現正進行上訴〔申請法援進行上訴〕 2019年7月27日晚上,家棟社工於抗爭現場上前出示社工證與警方溝通,避免不必要的人命傷亡,繼而被捕,並多處挫傷及頸部受傷住院。於2020年6月17日被判「阻撓正當執行職務的警務人員」罪成,判囚一年即時監禁,不得保釋。被囚一星期後高等法院終批出保釋許可,等待上訴。現正申請法援進行上訴,即使批出法援仍可能需自行支付部分訟費。 當日家棟被捕及最新資料可參考下列連結 https://bit.ly/2YwUEOR //…早前受審後被裁定一項阻差辦公罪成,重囚一年。社福界聞判譁然及震怒。劉家棟今向高等法院申請保釋等候上訴,法官潘兆童聽罷陳詞後,批准劉家棟保釋外出... 以10萬元現金保釋外出,其間不准離港、須交出旅遊證件、每周向警署報到兩次。//. . . . .
