政總集會合法 警方須撤回不確說法



警方向傳媒表示,現時正在政府總部外舉行的是非法集會,並阻止市民進入。「和平佔中」譴責警方公然撒謊及踐踏市民的集會自由,促請警方解釋及不要攔阻市民前往政總出席集會。

 

「和平佔中」持有的文件顯示,學聯、民陣及公民黨已於昨日(26日)獲得中區警區發出不反對通知書,可於27日凌時1分至同日午夜11時59分在添美道東、西兩面行人路、立法會西面行人路及夏慤道北面行人路舉行公眾集會,申請人至今未收到無效通知,即不反對通知書至今仍然生效,足證警方指集會屬非法,並非事實。

 

據現場糾察回報,警方大範圍地封鎖集會周圍,阻止市民進入,部分出入口因市民人數眾多而逼使警方後退,讓堅持到場的市民進入。據現場人士目測,現時已有一萬人前來參與,「和平佔中」呼籲更多市民前來出席集會。

 

和平佔中發起人戴耀廷在集會發言時呼籲集會人士堅守「安全、和平、信任及希望」的八字真言;另一發起人陳健民則堅信,「歷史會站在我們這一邊,民主必勝 」。

Assembling at Main Government Centres Lawful. Police Must Rescind Untrue Statement

 

Police has been indicating to the media that the ongoing assembly outside the MGC is illegal, and has barred entrance by members of the public. OCLP condemns such blatant lie which the police resorts to in order to trample on people's right of assembly. We call for an explanation and we demand that the police stop preventing the people from going and meeting there.

 

Documents in OCLP's possession show that as of yesterday, 26th, the Federation of Students, Human Rights Alliance and the Civic Party have been issued No Objection Notification from the Central Police District to assemble. The details: from 00.01 of 27th till 11.59 mid-night the same day, covering the pedestrian walkways east and west of Tim Mee Road, west of the Legislative Council, and north of Harcourt Road for the purpose of public assembly. As of this instance, the applicants have received no voidance notification, which means that the No Objection Notification remains valid. This shows that the police claim of unlawful assembly is untrue. Over 10,000 have gathered. OCLP invites more members of the public to come and assemble.

 

Benny Tai, convener of OCLP, called on the assembly to stand firm on the commitment to remain "safe, peaceful, trusting and hopeful". Chan Kin-man, another convener, reminded the assembled that "history is on our side. Democracy will prevail."
