1. 大學是思想言論自由的堡壘,我們反對大學管理層審查以和平方式表達之任何政治觀點。
University is bastion of freedom, we oppose the university management's attempt to censor peaceful expression of any political standpoints. 

2. 《基本法》第三十四條保障「香港居民有進行學術研究、文學藝術創作和其他文化活動的自由」、第三十九條保障「《公民權利和政治權利國際公約》、《經濟、社會與文化權利的國際公約》和國際勞工公約適用於香港的有關規定繼續有效,通過香港特別行政區的法律予以實施」。我們要求,行政長官林鄭月娥女士以各間大學校監之身份,公開向全香港巿民交代,她將會如何嚴格執行《基本法》第三十四條和第三十九條。
Basic Law Article 34 protects ❝Hong Kong residents shall have freedom to engage in academic research, literary and artistic creation, and other cultural activities❞, while Article 39 provides that the ❝provisions of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, and international labour conventions as applied to Hong Kong shall remain in force and shall be implemented through the laws of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region❞. We urge Chief Executive Mrs. Carrie Lam, as chancellor of different universities, to publicly explain on how she would strictly enforce Articles 34 and 39 of the Basic Law.

3. 我們呼籲,各間大學教職員和學生團結起來,共同抵抗任何形式的政治審查。
We call on all university and students to join hands in resisting all forms of political censorship.
