和平佔中澄清英國廣播公司(BBC)報道的內容之聲明

和平佔中澄清英國廣播公司報道的內容

 

就英國廣播公司(BBC)於本月21日報道於奥斯陸舉行的自由論壇,當中部分被訪者的言論失實,和平佔中特此澄清。

 

和平佔中三位發起人從未與報道中訪問的楊健利先生聯絡,遑論如楊先生在報道所言般頻密通話及接受其建議。

 

此外, 和平佔中亦不認識且從未接觸報道提及的Jamila Raqib 和 Serdja Popovic。

 

和平佔中成員未曾參加過奥斯陸自由論壇,也沒有接受過報道所述組織舉辦的專門訓練。和平佔中過去曾經在香港公開舉辦非暴力抗爭工作坊,但有關訓練全由和平佔中負責,沒有外國組織支援或介入,遑論如香港一個電台所指,訓練在奧斯陸舉行。

OCLP clarifies claims made in BBC story

 

Occupy Central with Love and Peace (OCLP) wishes to clarify inaccuracies in a story published about the Oslo Freedom Forum by the British Broadcasting Corporation on October 21st.

 

The three initiators of OCLP have never been in contact with Yang Jianli, let alone speak to him frequently or receive advice from him “on an almost hourlybasis”.

 

Neither has OCLP been in contact with or even know Jamila Raqib and Serdia Popovic, who are mentioned in the report.

 

OCLP’s members have not attended the Oslo Freedom Forum or received any specific training from the organisations mentioned in the article. OCLP has openly held “non-violent protest" workshops in Hong Kong but these were wholly organized by OCLP, without any support or intervention from foreign organisations. The claims made in a local radio news item, based on the BBC report, that the trainings took part in Oslo are simply untrue.
