這一天-我們為死者哀悼,為生者尋求公義
八月二十九日(星期日)上午十時至晚上七時,於中環遮打道行人專用區

當日會舉行多個活動,歡迎大家參與:

1) 不同信仰的菲律賓人攜手祝福(上午十時至十一時)
是次悲劇後的第一個星期天,不同信仰的菲律賓人及宗教領袖聚首,為死難者哀悼和尋求正義,並為倖存者祝福。

2)公開集會(上午十一時至下午六時)
FMWU-HK將會舉行公開集會,多位外傭團體和本地民間團體代表出席發言,探討是次悲劇對香港人和菲律賓人的影響。

3)「維護團結.尋求公義」燭光晚會*(晚上六時至七時):
一個由菲藉團體和本地團體合辦的活動!我們呼籲無論菲律賓人或香港人,都前來參與燭光晚會,表達對死難者的哀思和倖存者的支持。是次悲劇亦反映了菲律賓的人權問題!事實上,菲律賓雖然聲稱其政治制度是「民主和開放」,但作為國家機器的一部份,警察和軍隊不僅忽視人民的權利需要,而且往往以粗暴和殘酷的手法對待我們的訴求。

我們會在燭光晚會現場設立心意板,讓參加者表達對是次事悲劇的感受。

*燭光晚會是由FMWU HK和「香港促進菲律賓人權及和平運動」、新婦女協進會、亞洲學生協會、香港天主教正義和平委員會、香港天主教勞工事務委員會、香港基督徒協進會、United Filipinos in Hong Kong, BAYAN HK and Gabriela HK舉辦

其他活動:「八二三脅持人質事件」新聞圖片展-讓菲籍外傭和其他市民更了解是次事件。「香港促進菲律賓人權及和平運動」 (HKCAHRPP)會在上述新聞圖片展旁設立菲律賓人權展覽攤位。

我們呼籲你前來參與活動,但不要忘記:也請您邀請朋友一起來。請穿黑衣出席,我們當日並會派發白絲帶。在我們設立的心意板表達您的感受。

In relation to the recent August 23 hostage incident in Manila,
The Filipino Migrant Workers Union Hong Kong (FMWU-HK) offers their 12th anniversary as:

A Day of Sympathy and Reflection, A Day of Solidarity and Justice
Chater Road, Central, Hong Kong
August 29, 2010 (10:00AM-7:00PM)

Several events will happen on this day which we hope all of you can attend:

1) All-Filipino Inter-faith Gathering (10:00AM – 11:00AM)

On the first Sunday after the unfortunate incident, Filipinos of various faiths will lead an hour-long service for the victims and survivors of the August 23 Hostage Crisis. Leaders of different faiths will come together and express their unity with the rest of Hong Kong in mourning for the deaths of the nine victims and calling for justice.

2) Public Speak Out (11:00 AM – 6:00 PM)

The FMWU-HK will conduct a public speak-out that shall talk about the entire August 23 Hostage Crisis and how it has made an impact on the lives of both Hong Kong and Filipino people. As the whole event will be discussed, various migrant leaders will be invited to speak their minds and hearts on the issue.

We will also be inviting leaders of local Hong Kong organizations as well as local friends to speak.

3) People’s Vigil for Solidarity and Justice* (6:00 PM – 7:00 PM)

A candle-light vigil will gather both Filipinos and Hong Kong people to spend a time together
in expressing their sympathy and solidarity
as well as calling for justice for the victims and survivors of the August 23 incident.

The vigil will also relate the August 23 incident with the current human rights situation in the Philippines
whereby the Filipinos themselves are subjected to brutality, violence and negligence being instigated both by the police and military
as part of a political system that pronounces itself to be democratic.

A signature wall will be set up to encourage people to write messages and express themselves.

*The vigil is being organized by the FMWU HK together with HKCAHRPP, Association for the Advancement of Feminism, Asia Pacific Students and Youth Association, Justice and Peace Commission of the HK Catholic Diocese, HK Catholic Commission for Labour Affairs, Hong Kong Christian Council, United Filipinos in Hong Kong, BAYAN HK and Gabriela HK.

4) Other Highlights

a) A Photo-News Exhibit on the August 23 Hostage Crisis will be mounted to provide the Filipino migrant workers and other people a complete account of the August 23 hostage crisis.
b) Several pull-up panels on the Human Rights Situation in the Philippines will be set up side by side the exhibit. This will be hosted by the Hong Kong Campaign for the Advancement of Human Rights and Peace in the Philippines (HKCAHRPP).

We enjoin you to take part in this activity. Please do not forget to:
Join us on August 29 and invite your friends too. 
Wear a black shirt on that day. We will be distributing white ribbons all throughout the day for you to put on your shirts。
