「我來自香港,不是中國」 美國留學港生 學生報寫中港之別 惹中國留學生反擊 
2019/4/25 — 21:08

一名在美國波士頓留學的香港女生,近日在其學生報上撰寫千字文,以英文向當地學生解釋香港與中國之間的分別,並強調自己來自香港而非中國。有關文章引發熱烈迴響,並開始引起香港網民的關注。

該位名為Frances Hui的香港女生,日前在美國愛默生學院的學生報《The Berkeley Beacon》上發表文章,標題為「我來自香港,而非中國(I am from Hong Kong, not China)」,向當地學生詳細解釋中國與香港之間的關係及分別。

該文章先解釋香港被割讓予英國,及後移交予中華人民共和國的過程,又指出香港的核心價值是《基本法》保障的言論、結社、新聞自由,「我和很多香港人都因為與中國某種程度上的政治分離而感到自豪,由中共統治的中國,以臭名昭著的方式審查互聯網,並囚禁異見人士」。

Frances Hui又提及,在去年參加學校迎新活動時,校方將她的家鄉稱為「中國香港(Hong Kong, China)」,她對此感到不悅,並認為校園內缺乏香港、台灣學生的聲音,認為校園不應避免政治敏感議題,反而要讓不同學生都有發聲平台。

一名自稱該文作者的網民,今日於連登討論區撰文。她稱自己其實是該學生報的編輯之一,而文章已打破該網站最高點閱率紀錄。她解釋寫作背後的理念,指自己一直希望用英文撰寫香港新聞,令香港獲更多國際社會關注。

她稱在寫完這篇文章後,獲不少台灣學生支持,但同時引起中國學生的討論,「有人post instagram tag我鬧我,有好多人喺篇新聞嘅留言部分到插我」。她又稱被校方聯絡召見,「雖然有其他編輯照住,我仍然覺得好不安」。

文章引起迴響後,多位中國學生亦向《The Berkeley Beacon》投稿,反駁Frances Hui的文章。投稿強調國際社會及法律上均同意,香港領土是中國一部分。而美國國務院及聯合國視香港為中國的一個特別行政區,因為校方將香港稱為「中國香港」做法合適。

Person of Color Column: I am from Hong Kong, not China

I am from a city owned by a country that I don’t belong to.

Britain colonized Hong Kong as a consequence of the Opium War in 1842. While China gave up part of Hong Kong permanently to Britain—the New Territories, which makes up 86 percent of Hong Kong, was also under British control in a 99-year lease. In 1997, when the lease ended, the British government decided to give all of Hong Kong back to the People’s Republic of China, known just as China today, as a “special administrative region” subordinated by China’s government.

To eliminate panic caused by the change, China promised to practice “one country, two systems,” which guaranteed that everything in Hong Kong would stay the same and operated on a separate political system from other cities in China for 50 years.

China appoints a chief executive every five years after a conditional election among the election committee. Hong Kong’s legal system is embedded within a supreme law called the Basic Law, while citizens elect their legislators in the Legislative Council every five years.

I grew up learning that my city’s core values were rooted in the freedoms granted by the Basic Law, including freedom of speech, freedom of assembly, and freedom of press and publication. Myself and many people from Hong Kong take pride in being somewhat politically separated from China, which is governed by the Chinese Communist Party that notoriously censors the internet and imprisons dissident people in China. Many citizens even call themselves “Hongkonger” which the Oxford Dictionary later adopted in 2014.

The outbreak of the Umbrella Revolution, a 79-day occupying movement in 2014 when people asked for universal suffrage in electing the chief executive, put a spotlight on people’s ethnic identification. According to a poll by the University of Hong Kong, as of December 2018, 40 percent of citizens identify themselves as Hongkongers, as opposed to 15 percent who define themselves as Chinese. Less than 4 percent of the young generation ages 18 through 29 identified as Chinese in 2017, according to HK01.

Hongkongers ally with Taiwan, officially known as the Republic of China, which lost control of mainland China to the communist party in the Chinese Civil War in 1949. Unlike Hong Kong, Taiwan has almost no governmental connection with China. Taiwanese citizens even possess the right to elect their president, governors, and legislators democratically. However, people from Taiwan face the same identity crisis as Hongkongers.

One of my Taiwanese friends at Emerson adopted the “Chinese” identity, even though she told me she loves Taiwan. She said she does not feel strong enough to fight over her identity with her Chinese friends. Last semester, after my friend and I presented a final project about China’s “re-education camps,” where they hold more than a million Muslims in China for genocide, a Chinese student discredited our presentation for being too political.

International students from Hong Kong, Taiwan, Tibet and other places in relation to China face backlash for not identifying as Chinese. Chemi Lhamo, the newly elected student union president of the University of Toronto Scarborough, received hateful comments on her social media because of her Tibetan identity. An online petition gathered more than 10,000 signatures calling for Lhamo to step down because of her pro-independence statements regarding Tibet and Taiwan.

“We strongly disagree with Lhamo’s political statements and her participation in political campaigns that were clearly against Chinese history, Chinese laws, and Chinese students’ rights,” wrote a student who started the petition online after Lhamo was elected in March.

Chinese international students have become a prominent group at most U.S. schools in recent years. They made up nearly 60 percent of Emerson’s undergraduate international student population in fall 2018, according to the college’s Impact Report on Internationalization.

While it is globally agreed that Hong Kong and Taiwan are different entities from China politically, socially, and financially, it is important for colleges to be politically correct by educating themselves on international politics.

During my orientation in last fall, the School of Communication’s presentation about international exchange programs listed my hometown as “Hong Kong, China.” This move might flatter most of the Chinese students at Emerson, yet it upsets me to see how unaware the college is to this topic.

If the college promotes their education abroad programs to broaden students’ global vision, they must be more cognizant and knowledgeable of the places they accept students from and send students to.

I have never felt so desperate to find other people from Hong Kong and advocate for my culture. I recognize the absence of that voice on campus for Taiwanese, Hongkongers and other Chinese minority groups.

At my previous college in Seattle, faculty members hosted a panel that I spoke on alongside other students from Hong Kong, China, and Taiwan. Throughout the event, we touched on similarities and differences between the three cultures and educated the audience on controversial advocacy in Hong Kong and Taiwan. At the end of the panel, everyone seemed to leave with lingering curiosity to continue the conversation and an understanding of differences between us.

Instead of avoiding sensitive political topics to stay away from conflict, there should be more discussions on these issues to provide different students with an inclusive platform to voice their opinions. Everyone, including students from China or Hong Kong, should keep their minds open for new information and perspectives so as to learn from others.

It’s easy to exclude dissidents, but that only reinforces the problem and enlarges the gap between different nationalities. People should acknowledge the differences and participate in those conversations, despite all of the political tension within these places. This is important to provide a comfortable environment for people to identify themselves as who they want to be.

Although it was difficult facing judgment and disdain as one of the few Hongkongers at Emerson, I will strongly hold onto that identity because I am proud and I want to tell people where my actual home is.

咁就啱喇,我黨是要將所有國家都消亡,中國當然會係其中之一。

但香港作為一個地方,"香港"這個地理名稱,應該會被我黨允許長期保留。
