【新唐人2014年02月24日讯】乌克兰着手清除共产党痕迹

乌克兰的反政府示威已经取得胜利,议会罢免了总统亚努科维奇后,乌克兰各地开始清除与苏联统治和共产党有关的痕迹。

据《美国之音》报导,在乌克兰工业重镇“第聂伯罗彼得罗夫斯克”市,当地市议会议员决定把市中心的“弗拉基米尔-列宁”广场改名为“反政府示威英雄”广场。而在一天前,当地市民推倒了这个广场上的列宁塑像。

在东部城市苏梅市,当地议会也决定把位于市中心警察局对面的“五一”大街,改名为“反政府示威英雄”大街。市议员说,因为“五一节”与过去苏联时代的共产党统治联系在一起。

在中部的切尔卡瑟州首府切尔卡瑟市,当地议会也在讨论要把市中心的“苏联广场”改名为“反政府示威英雄”广场。在过去两天,切尔卡瑟州总共有9座列宁塑像被推倒。切尔卡瑟州议会还计划立法,禁止共产党和总统亚努科维奇所领导的地区党在当地活动。

镇压民众示威 乌克兰官员将受严惩

据报导,乌克兰议会已经下令,禁止那些镇压示威民众,手上沾满示威者鲜血的嫌疑人和官员出境。已经出逃的将面临国际通缉。

乌克兰议会还将批准一项专门法律,为未来海牙国际法庭审判那些参与镇压示威民众的官员和军警,清除障碍。

2月18号,乌克兰当局在首都基辅开枪镇压示威民众,造成100多人死伤。目前被罢免的总统亚努科维奇和其他政府高级官员去向不明。

香港6000人参加“反灭声”游行

“香港记者协会”等多个团体2月23号发起“反灭声”游行,捍卫新闻自由,“香港记协”表示,有超过6000人参加。

游行人士佩戴像征新闻自由的蓝丝带,并打出“反河蟹、反灭声”的标语,游行队伍最后在香港政府总部前进行示威集会,各发起团体及支持组织的代表逐一上台发言。

香港《明报》员工关注组、和新成立的香港“独立评论人协会”也参与发起游行,游行还获得香港泛民主派政党包括民主党、公民党和工党等党派的支持,都有派人参加;香港资深传媒人程翔、和最近被解职的前《香港商业电台》主持人李慧玲等,也都参加了游行。

香港最近连续发生打压新闻自由事件,包括《明报》无故撤换总编辑、李慧玲被解雇、大陆企业停止在香港免费报纸“am730”上登广告等,外界质疑,这是北京担心香港舆论持续反对中共控制香港双普选,而打压香港新闻自由的行动。

Ukraine Starts Clearing Marks of Communist Party

The Ukrainian Parliament has dismissed
President Viktor Yanukovych.
This move comes after large scale
anti-government demonstrations.
Ukrainian people are clearing away the marks
of the Communist Party and the Soviet Union.

Voice of America reports that the local council are renaming
“Lenin Square” as the “Square of Maidan Heroes”.
The square is in the important industrial
city of Dnepr Dnepropetrovsk.
Prior to this move, local citizens pulled
down the Lenin statue in the square.

In the eastern city of Sumy, the local council
has decided to rename a city center street,
to remove association with the soviet era.

In Cherkasy City, the local council also
discussed renaming “Soviet Union Square.”
Within the past two days, nine Lenin statues
have been torn down in Cherkasy State.

Ukrainian Parliament also plans to establish legislation,
forbidding activity from the regional party led by the
Communist Party, or President Viktor Yanukovych’s Party.

Officials will also face heavy punishment
for repression of public demonstrations.

It is said that the Ukrainian Parliament has
ordered an extradition for those officials who
suppressed protesters, and are stained with blood.

Officials who have already fled will face international arrest.

The parliament also approved a special law to facilitate
future International Criminal Court trials for those officials,
and police, involved in the repression of protesters.

On February 18, Ukrainian authorities fired on
protesters, resulting in more than 100 deaths.
Current whereabouts of deposed Viktor Yanukovych,
and other senior government officials, is unknown.

Hong Kong: 6,000 People Participate In Free Speech Parade

More than 6,000 people were reported in
attendance of a free speech parade in Hong Kong.
The event was partly organized by the Hong Kong
Journalists Association, to protect freedom of press.

Demonstrators rallied in the front of
the Hong Kong government buildings.
They wore blue ribbons, a sign of press freedom, and
carried banners saying, “Free Speech, Free Hong Kong.”

The representatives of different organizations spoke in turn.

Hong Kong’s Ming Pao Staff Group, and
the Independent Review Association, were
also involved in launching the parade.

Participants included the Hong Kong Democratic
Party, Civic Party and the Labour Party.
Senior Hong Kong journalist Ching Cheong, and the
recently dismissed the radio host Li Huiling attended.

There has been continuing suppression
of press freedom in Hong Kong.
Ming Pao made an editor replacement, and
Li Huiling was dismissed from being a radio host.

The Beijing authorities are concerned over
continual criticism of the Communist regime
in Hong Kong media and public opinion.
