STORY:
Computer networking giant Cisco may be helping the Chinese regime keep an eye on its citizens – including monitoring political dissidents.
電腦網路巨頭思科,可能會幫助中國政權監控公民 – 包括監視持不同政見者。

Over the next two to three years, the city of Chongqing will install a complex network of surveillance equipment, including half a million security cameras. The project is dubbed “Peaceful Chongqing." According to the Wall Street Journal, Cisco is likely to provide key pieces of equipment.
在未來兩到三年內,重慶市將安裝一個複雜的網路監控設備,包括50萬台保全攝影機。該項目被稱為"和平重慶"。據華爾街日報報導,思科可能提供其關鍵設備元件。

Human rights groups are concerned the camera network will be used to further stifle human rights and political expression. Amnesty International researcher Corinna-Barbara Francis told the Journal that there is evidence Chinese authorities use video surveillance to, “crack down and then criminalize activity which should not be criminalized."
人權組織擔心,攝影機網路將被用來進一步壓制人權,和人們的政治表達權利。大赦國際的研究員科琳娜 – 芭芭拉弗朗西斯告訴華爾街日報說,證據指出中國當局使用錄影監控,來"打擊那些本不應以犯罪論處的犯罪活動。"

Cisco general counsel Mark Chandler stated in a June blog post that they do not supply the CCP with equipment that has been “customized in any way" to suppress human rights.
思科總法律顧問馬克錢德勒在6月的部落格文章中說,他們不提供中共"任何方式客製化"的設備助其壓制人權。

After the 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre, a U.S. law barred companies from exporting crime control products, like fingerprinting equipment, to China. But the restrictions don’t cover equipment with multiple uses, like security cameras.
經過 1989年的天安門大屠殺事件後,美國法律禁止公司行號出口犯罪控制產品到中國,如指紋識別設備等。但這項限制不包括具有多種用途的設備,如保全攝影機。
