2017/9/22 — 19:04

因公民廣場案被判囚7個月的周永康,繼早前獲其就讀碩士的英國倫敦政治經濟學院發聲明支持後,已取錄他為博士候選人的加州大學柏克萊分校,該校校報亦以頭版關注其情況。報道指,周永康原於今年秋季入讀加州大學柏克萊分校,但於赴美就學前數周入獄。該報道提到,加州大學柏克萊分校有關學系會等待周永康出獄,以繼續其博士學位。

該報道以〈「不公義」在香港('Injustice' in Hong Kong )〉為題,指該校博士候選人周永康因領導香港民主抗爭入獄,並詳述周永康領導雨傘運動、公民廣場案刑期覆核等詳情。報道指周永康原於本年秋季學期,到該校修讀地理博士,專攻「非暴力社會運動」。

報道引述該校地理學系系主任Nathan Sayre指,周永康可於獲釋後繼續修選博士學位,該學系願意等待周永康入讀。

Many people in the UC Berkeley community also expressed their support. Hector Chan, president of the Hong Kong Student Association, said in an email that Chow occupied Civic Square not for his own personal interests but to fight for referendum and democracy in Hong Kong — a “fundamental right in the American community.”

Campus head graduate advisor for geography John Chiang said he was “disheartened” by Chow’s sentencing, but he affirmed the geography department’s faith and support for Chow as an incoming doctoral student. Sayre added that Chow can continue to pursue his doctorate after he is released and that the department is willing to wait.
