【釋放 Hong 與所有受關押的越南環境人權鬥士 】  Free Hong: A call to free all Vietnamese climate defenders

GNA Monthly Event feat. 350.org 張良伊 | Free Hong: A call to free all Vietnamese climate defenders

亞洲鬧世代座談 feat. 350.org 張良伊|釋放 Hong 與所有受關押的越南環境人權鬥士

Hoang Thi Minh Hong, a prominent environmental activist, was arrested on 31 May and denied access to a lawyer, healthcare and other basic needs. She faces up to seven years imprisonment on spurious charges of tax evasion, a tactic commonly used against climate activists in the country.

Join us for a talk on how Vietnam’s ruling communist party is targeting activists in the climate movement, not respecting their human rights and suppressing civil society’s participation in the country's energy transition.

For this talk we will be joined by Liangyi Chang who will be sharing about 350.org’s campaign Free Hong.

Liangyi Chang is 350.org Asia Managing Director. His concerns about climate change are for future generations and believes that youth can change the world. Starting in 2009, he joined various international NGOs, including participating in UNFCCC's 15th Conference of the Parties. He has visited various countries to learn different perspectives - in 2010 he joined the Across The Ocean project in South pacific islands as a sea level raising witness and in 2013 he joined the 2041 project to Antarctica for an ice melting investigation tour.

2023年5月31日,越南知名氣候行動鬥士Hoang Thi Minh Hong 被當地政府以莫須有之逃漏稅為由拘留,起初她無法與律師取得任何會面的機會,並無法取得必要之醫療藥物或其他生活基本需求。

她現在正面臨著越南政府模糊的逃漏稅指控,除了罰鍰 67 億越南盾(近900萬台幣),甚至還可能最高判處七年有期徒刑。而在過去兩三年間,越南政府已經不是第一次,用這樣的方式對付氣候、公民意見領袖,越南的公民社會正蔓延著人人自危的氛圍。

這場座談會,我們邀請 350.org 的亞洲管理總監 張良伊分享#FreeHong 的倡議行動是如何串聯全球發起,並針對「越南政府是如何透過違反基本人權的方式,針對氣候運動行動者、公民意見領袖,壓制國內能源轉型中的公民聲音?」為主題,進一步討論與現場問答。
