【禁聞】SARS後北京學會不隱瞞?

FacebookPrintFont Size簡體

【新唐人2012年7月26日訊】21號的暴雨災害過去了幾天,北京市在22號晚間公布的雨災遇難人數37人,一直沒有更新,面對民間強烈呼籲公布傷亡詳情、公布遇難者名單的聲音。北京市新聞辦在24號邀請境外媒體,表示經歷過非典考驗,政府不會隱瞞傷亡和災情。但媒體人指出,在現行體制下,要完全公布恐怕很難。

《福布斯》中文網25號凌晨在《騰訊》微博上發帖「北京雨災死亡人數恐將繼續上升」,其中引用網友王小川的微博消息「今晚得知了北京大雨死亡人數,震驚,10秒鐘說不出話來了,超出我任何理性、感性、認知、想像。政府過兩日會公布數據,我無膽說出來。」另外,《人民日報》在22號發的微博指稱,傷亡人數「數據將會很瀋痛」。 類似的種種跡象顯示,官方掌握的數字已經超過公布的37人,只是沒有更新。

大量網友呼籲官方公布37名遇難者名單,以便核對和公眾知情。微博上有網友直言「請不要忘記2003年的非典!瞞報數據~後果自負!」

《長城抗戰網》總編賈元良指出,公布遇難者名單是必須要做的事,理應成為一種深厚的人文傳統,理應成為北京精神的實踐典範。

賈元良:「從政府信息來看,37人,他已經知道25人的身份名稱了,他最起碼首先應該把這25個人的名單公布出來。反正這種越拖延越對政府越不利。而且公布名單也是對死者的一個尊重,是體現中華傳統文化的一個重要組成部分。」

在北京官方宣佈已經確認了身份的22名遇難者中,官方只公布了其中三名官員的姓名,包括一名公安派出所長、一名鎮長、一名副鎮長,並指稱他們是因公犧牲。

香港《蘋果日報》對此批評說,官方不能「選擇性」的公布遇難者名單。並指出,每逢發生重大的天災人禍,內地傳媒首先出現的名單仍然是官員的姓名,要嘛是發出指示的領導人名單,要嘛是陪同領導人到現場的官員的名單,其中顯示的是「官本位」觀念,顯示的是對遇難者的不尊重、對生命的輕蔑。

前《河北人民廣播電臺》編輯、自由撰稿人朱欣欣指出,這是官方的新聞導向。

朱欣欣:「它實際上也是在誘導新聞的導向,所謂的我們這些官員們也在努力,也在救災。它實際上是,變相的在美化這個政府。還是它的這種『官貴民輕』的這種『官本位』的傾向。」

面對民間質疑的聲浪,北京市政府新聞辦在24號召開新聞發佈會,新聞辦主任王惠稱,說北京市政府經過SARS的考驗,不會再隱瞞傷亡數字。

朱欣欣:「要是一一公布,完全公布出來我覺得很難。凡是一出了事之後,政府總是首先考慮到他們自己,對自己是不是有利,而不是首先是民眾的利益,因為這就是中國這種體制所決定的。一切的都是以官方的這種權利為核心,為最高的利益。」

事實上在雨災後,北京市長郭金龍就在22號晚上「高調」探視房山區,並下令要地方官員報告實際死亡人數、並且及時公開災情。但就在同一天,郭金龍又要求,當前要把工作重點轉到「救災善後維穩」,「確保社會穩定,以優異成績迎接黨的十八大勝利召開」。市長從「親民」立刻變臉要「維穩」,網友說「心都涼了」。

星期三,《新華網》更報導:郭金龍已經「辭去北京市市長職務」,網上針對他是否「引咎辭職」的帖子大多被刪除。《德國之聲》報導,「北京正副市長辭職是虛晃一槍」,並指出,郭金龍已於7月4號被任命為北京市委書記,他的辭職並不在意料之外,似乎是在政治生涯中又往前邁進一步。

《蘋果日報》的評論說,所謂以人為本,所謂政治改革,中共已空談了多年,真的稍有誠意,何不從公布遇難者名單這樣一個細節做起?何不從減少高官名單霸佔報章版位開始?

Has Beijing Learned Its Lesson from Concealing the SARS Death Toll?

After the storm on the 21st, Beijing reported,
on the 22nd, that 37 were killed, but there have been no updates since then.
The public is asking for a name list of the deceased.

Beijing News Office invited foreign media on the 24th,
saying after SARS, the government does not hide any death tolls.
However, some journalists said that under
the current system, it is difficult to accomplish that.

Forbeschina.com’s micro-blog post on the 25th
stated the death doll from the storm is rising.
Wang Xiaochuan’s micro-blog stated,"Shocked,
when learning the death toll, can’t speak for 10 seconds.
Beyond my perception, or imagination.
The authority will announce new number. I dare not to say it."
A micro-blog from People’s Daily on the 22nd
said the number is heartbreaking.

Evidence shows that the authority knows of
a much larger number, but has not released it.

Netizens asked for a official name list of the 37
deceased. Some netizens said, “Don’t forget SARS.
Hide the number, you will pay the consequence."

Chief Editor of cckz1933.cn, Jia Yuanliang said
that it is a necessary to release the name list.
It shall be a humanitarian tradition,
a practice of Beijing Spirit.

Jia Yuanliang:"According to official information,
37 died. They know the identities of 25.
They shall release them.
The delay is no good for them.
Announcing their names is showing respect to them.
It is part of Chinese traditional culture."

Beijing said they have confirmed the identity of 22.

Among them, only 3 officials’names were announced,
including head officer of a police station, a mayor of a town, and one deputy mayor.
The authority said they died during their public duty.

Apple Daily in HK said authorities shouldn’t
be selective regarding the name list.
Every time, when there is disaster, mainland media
will first release the name of deceased officials,
or those who give out the instructions,
or the officials who visited the site.
It reflects a notion of officials before the people.
There is no respect for the victims, which is ignorant of life.

Former journalist Zhu Xinxin from Hebei Radio
said the regime controlled the news.

Zhu Xinxin: “They are actually misleading the news,
by saying the officials are working hard and are helping.
They are propagating for the regime. The core is
their concept of officials before the people."

Pressured by public criticism, Beijing held news
conference on the 24th.
The news officer said that drawing on lessons
from the SARS incident, Beijing won’t hide any death toll.

Zhu Xinxin: “I think it is very difficult to announce
all names.
Once there is disaster, the authority’s first priority
is themselves, which benefits them first, not the people.
It is a result from the current system. The authority’s
power is the core interest, the highest interest."

After the storm, Beijing mayor Guo Jinlong
visited Fangshan on the 22nd,
asking local officials to report the real death toll
and release it timely.
However, the same day, he said the focus of
current work switched to “maintaining stability and
welcoming the 18th Party Congress with
excellent performances."
The mayor changed from caring about the people
to maintaining stability. Netizens said,"My heart felt cold."

Wednesday, Xinhuanet.com reported
that Guo has resigned his mayor’s position.
Most online posts about his resignation
due to being blamed were deleted.
German Voice said his resign is just a show,
because he was appointed as the Party Secretary of Beijing on July 4th. His resignation is a step forward in his political career.

An Editorial from Apple Daily stated the CCP has
chanted many years about putting the people first and about political reform.
If they are serious, why didn’t they start with a small
thing like releasing the name list or reducing their high officials news coverage?
