Alliance Initiator counters independencist charge

By Quinn Chan Ka Chun


Oct. 22 Organizer of Alliance for True Democracy denied he was teaming up with Taiwan independence activists, warning Beijing should permit universal suffrage as a sign of sincerity to negotiate issues with Taiwan.


Joseph Cheng-Yu Shek, spokesperson of Alliance for True Democracy, rebutted Beijing mouthpiece Global Times’ charge of colluding with Taiwan Independencists in inciting Hong Kong independence when seen meeting with Taiwanese Politician Shih Ming-teh. Cheng said that the trip was intended to exchange opinions on Hong Kong’s democracy issue, adding that Beijing also sought help from foreign powers.


“Chinese Communist Party had received funds and consultations from other countries before they reigned,” Cheng said at Shue Yan University yesterday. “They [the party] do not deserve the right to make such accusation.’


Cheng reinstated that the Taiwan trip also covered meetings with other local civic societies. He said that he frequently travel to Taiwan for Scholar meeting and discussion with different political parties, adding that Taiwanese’s concern about Hong Kong political development is normal. He said that Beijing’s cross-strait policy would receive no room for negotiation in Taiwan if it did not permit universal suffrage in Hong Kong.


Shih, an organizer of 2006’s Anti-Corruption March dubbed Red-Clothes, said in a public letter published on AppleDaily that supporting universal suffrage in Hong Kong did not violate China’s sovereignty on Hong Kong, denying blast on him promoting Hong Kong independence.


Shih also clarified that the meeting was based on his personal concern about Hong Kong’s democracy development, without any affiliations with Taiwan’s Democratic Progressive Party nor Taiwan independencists.


Regarding media quoted Shih as “encouraging Taiwanese’s participation for Occupy Central Movement”, Cheng believed that chance for foreigner’s participation in the Movement is slim.


“I doubt if they [paticipants from Taiwan] could enter Hong Kong borders,’ he said.


Cheng, along with Occupy Central Initiator Chu Yiu-ming and Labour Party lawmaker Lee Cheuk-yan, was reported to visit Taiwan last week. Cheng said that he had obtained the Alliance’s approval prior to the trip. He confirmed that several Alliance members, including him and Ho Chun-yan, will participate in the Occupy Central Movement, but said that the Alliance and Occupy Central are two separate bodies.


Cheng was disappointed about the lateness of Government launching the consultation on political reform. He hoped a reform solution could be achieved by April next year, so that Occupy Central Movement “needed not to occur”.
