永遠站在反抗者一方
港大學生會就二月八日旺角之役聲明

時值新正頭,小販路邊擺賣,銷售魚蛋雞髀,市民樂也融融,本無大礙。然而,食環署連日巡查,趕盡小販自力更新,殺絕黎民度歲雅興。警方又配備盾牌、伸縮棍、胡椒噴霧、紅黃旗幡等到場,刻意挑起民憤。連番衝突過後,警員 PC5619 不顧流彈誤中途人之險,於群眾中鳴槍兩發,終引燃熊熊抗爭烈火,蔓延旺角街頭。

若諸君設身處地,耳聽槍響劃破長空,眼見槍管直指頭顱,豈不膽裂心顫?數百市民見狀,克服怵惕恐懼,群起反抗還擊,實為大義之舉。如果 PC5619 因恐懼而開槍,敢問市民慘遭黑警棍揮腳踢,又當如何?且未論被捕之士,久困漆黑囚車,飽受亂拳無數,抵達警局又遭一番折磨。倘若泯滅良知,反謂其自找苦吃,豈非有欠惻隱同理之心?你我人身肉造,被癢會笑,被打會痛,而人民被壓迫,理所當然會反抗。

冰封三尺,絕非一日之寒:磚頭火舌僅其物象表徵,專制政權壓迫實為原兇。過往港府尚有些須節制,會因和平示威而讓步。近數年來,港共政權愈加無恥,面對逾百萬人爭取真普選的民意,依然不聞不理。港人忍無可忍,遂於雨傘革命奮起抗爭,設障開傘,持盾擋棍。今日旺角之役與雨傘革命一脈相承,分別在催淚白煙與懾人槍聲之下,不再畏懼,勇往直前,掀起新式抗爭之序幕。

一如臺灣候任總統蔡英文所說:「天色漸漸光,這裡有一群人,為了守護我們的夢,變成更加勇敢的人。」是役不少戰友均自發參與,甘冒性命之虞和刑責風險,赤身對抗警察血腥暴行,好些身受重傷,生死未卜。亦有三位港大同窗被捕、受傷,當中包括候任學苑總編輯,在採訪期間被無理拘捕。對此本會承諾向有關同學提供一切可行協助,絕不冷血割蓆,絕不令行動者孤立無援。

我們永遠站在反抗者一方。

Forever we stand with the rebels
Declaration of the Hong Kong University Students’ Union on the Battle of Mongkok on 8th February

At the break of the Lunar New Year, hawkers set up their stalls along the roadside and sold assortments of snacks. Citizens surely enjoyed their time, and it was certainly not a problem. However, the Food and Environmental Hygiene Department (FEHD) had been keeping a close watch on them, forcing them not to make their own living, forbidding citizens not to enjoy their new year holidays. The Police Force even arrived at the scene and armed themselves with shields, contractable batons, pepper sprays and various flags for warning, intentionally stirring up people’s fury. After various direct confrontations, PC 5619 disregarded the danger of a stray bullet and illegally shot two rounds of bullets amid the huge crowd. It only results in the blazing conflict
and resistance widespread in the Mongkok neighbourhood hitherto.

Standing in others’ shoes, one shall only shrivel in horror when the gunshot across the air was heard, the gun barrel pointing at skulls were witnessed. In view of such situation, hundreds of citizens overcame their terror and rose to revolt for justice. Had PC 5619 taken the shot out of fear, how should people have reacted in face of the strikes and kicks of the fiendish police? At the same time, held in custody in the deep black car, the detainees suffered countless blows and punches, let alone further tortures as they arrived the police station. Did you, devoid of conscience, deem them to ask for their own troubles, it would only show your total lack of empathy. We are all the same. We are just human. We laugh when tickled, hurt when beaten. And when people are suppressed, they rebel for sure.

It was never only a day for all these to happen. Bricks and flames are the surface, the authoritarian and its suppression are indeed the crux. The Hong Kong government had once behaved and given in in view of peaceful demonstrations. But in recent years, the Hong Kong communist regime only became more shameless and even remained indifferent towards the hundreds of millions of support to true universal suffrage. As Hongkongers could no longer tolerate, people rose to revolt in the Umbrella Revolution with barricades and shields. Battle of Mongkok today originated from and resembled the Umbrella Revolution. In the midst of teary smog and frightening gunshot, we no longer fear and we stride forward with courage, unveiling the start of a brand-new way in protest.

As Tsai Ing-wen, the incoming President of Taiwan said, ‘As the sky dims, here are a group of people turning braver in order to protect our dreams.’ Many compatriots today were volunteers willing to take the risk of criminal offence or even their lives. Unarmed, they struggled against the violence and bloodshed of the police. Many are severely injured, with their situations unknown yet. Three schoolmates were also arrested and hurt, including the incoming Editor-In-Chief of the Undergrad, HKUSU who had been unreasonably arrested when reporting. We promise that we shall offer any possible assitances to the concerned students. We shall never turn our back on or leave them alone and unassisted.

Forever we stand with the rebels.

The Hong Kong University Students’ Union
