2020-05-21

Lee Cheuk-yan En ce mois de mai 2020, alors que le confinement général a rendu quasiment impossible la célébration de la fête des travailleurs le 1er mai, le gouvernement de la Région administrative spéciale de Hong Kong, région de la République populaire de Chine, envoie comparaître au tribunal Lee Cheuk-yan, le secrétaire général de la confédération syndicale HKCTU : il est accusé d’avoir « participé à une manifestation publique le 31 août 2019 qui a enfreint l’Ordonnance sur l’ordre public de Hong Kong ».  L’ordonnance en question dont se sert le gouvernement de Carrie Lam est issue des réglementations d’urgence que le gouvernement colonial britannique avait adoptées contre la grève des marins en 1922 et les grèves ouvrières de 1967. C’est au nom de cet ordre public que plus de 7 000 manifestants ont été arrêtés depuis le mois de juin 2019 et 1 000 déjà condamnés !  Ainsi, Lee Cheuk-yan a comparu le 5 mai et est sommé de [...]

CHINA / Hong Kong Lee Cheuk-yan, Chinese trade union leader, summoned to court! Declaration of the China Inquiry Commission

2020-05-20

Lee Cheuk-Yan, General Secretary of the HKCTU trade union federation In this month of May 2020, when the general lock-down has made the celebration of May Day virtually impossible, the government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, a region of the People’s Republic of China, has summoned Lee Cheuk-Yan, General Secretary of the HKCTU trade union federation, to court under the charge of “participating in a public demonstration on August 31, 2019, which violated the Decree on public order of Hong Kong”. The decree that the Carrie Lam government is using is the upshot of the emergency rules which the British colonial government had issued against the seamen’s strikes back in 1922 and the 1967 workers’ strikes. It is in the name of this public order that over 7,000 demonstrators have been arrested since June 2019 and 1,000 have already been sentenced! Lee Cheuk-yan appeared in court on May 5 and is summoned again to appear on May 18. When tens of thousand workers have [...]
