中國近年一邊在國內強調『法治』，一邊對外強調文明和平崛起，執法部門卻濫用權力，以暴力和拘禁的手段打壓工人維權活動和恐嚇勞工機構，遏止中國工人實現勞動三權。關注勞工權利的團體及個人呼籲中國政府︰1. 立即無條件釋放所有被拘留的勞權人士2. 停止打壓勞工機構、工人維權代表及公民社會人士3. 尊重及保障憲法賦予公民社會的發展空間與自由
From 3 - 5 December, labour NGOs based in Guangdong province were targeted in a harsh and unexpected wave of detentions. At least four labour NGOs have been targeted and 25 NGO staff and volunteers have been detained and questioned by police, seven of whom either remain in detention or cannot be contacted. These include Panyu Workers’ Centre director Zeng Feiyang and staff member Zhu Xiaomei; Foshan Nanfeiyan Social Work Services Organization director He Xiaobo; labour activists Peng Jiayong, Deng Xiaoming, Meng Han, and Tang Jian. Four individuals - Zeng Feiyang, He Xiaobo, Zhu Xiaomei and Deng Xiaoming - are confirmed as being in detention.
The Chinese government purports to advance the “rule of law” within its borders and promotes the idea of a civilized and peaceful rise internationally. However, local governments abuse their power, using violence and arrests to repress and intimidate labour organizations, preventing Chinese workers from pursuing fundamental labour rights, including freedom of association and the right to strike and collective bargaining. As organisations and individuals working labour rights, we call on the Chinese government to:1. Immediately release all the aforementioned detained labour activists2. Stop suppressing labour activists, labour organisations and civil society organisations.3. Respect and protect the development and freedom of civil society as prescribed by China’s Constitution.
