一起守護香港的自由和民主

July 21st, 2020 in Articles & News

Read this article in English. 香港正面臨黑暗的日子。7 月 6 日深夜,香港政府強推一系列措施,公然侵害私隱、加強審查,並打壓言論自由。自治、民主的香港,從此蕩然無存。 自由之戰向來無分國界,若要成功,我們必先聯成一線。香港這場戰鬥,就是世界的戰鬥,我們每個人都義無反顧,定當站在香港的一方。今天,為了捍衛民主、私隱和言論自由,我們正式宣布一項新的籌款活動。 我們將會捐出 2020 年 7、8 月份香港業務的一半收益,以支援兩個本地民權團體,分別是:612 人道支援基金,以及攬炒團隊(Stand With Hong Kong)。 活動期間,我們希望籌得逾 1,000,000 港元,為捍衛香港自由一役略盡綿力。截至 2020 年 7 月 20 日,是次籌款活動暫籌得 171,000 元。 為何香港急需我們的支持 自 1997 年,香港在《基本法》保障人民基本權利的條件下,成為了中國的特別行政區。儘管這些法律保障獲得國際認可,中國當局仍屢屢蠶蝕香港的自由。香港人民為了竭力守護他們享有的自由,紛紛走上了街頭。 為了鎮壓示威運動,中國在 6 月 30 日通過《港區國家安全法》,訂立沒有清晰定義的「顛覆國家政權」罪名,為中國在香港行使鐵腕政治手段鋪路,這些手段包括奧威爾式審查、無手令下擅闖民居搜查、對政治囚犯進行秘密審判、強迫他們認罪,甚至動用私刑。是次頒布的法例,以及在 7 月 6 日公佈的實施細則,從根本上扭轉了香港的局勢。事實上,中國的「防火長城」現已可伸向香港,而抗爭者亦將隨時遭到肆意拘留和刑事起訴。 我們 Proton 亦察覺到這些影響。香港人已長年透過 ProtonMail 和 ProtonVPN,保障自己的網絡通訊和網上活動免受政府監控。7 月 6 日起,ProtonVPN 或將成為突破網路審查的必需品。自從《國安法》訂立以來,ProtonVPN 在香港地區的搜尋率躍增 3,000%,登上香港 […]
