A Fight For Our Next Generation – Election Manifesto

These are times of deception and injustice.

In a supposedly democratic election, Lau Siu-lai was deprived of her right to be elected.

Our freedoms of speech, the press and association have been violently undermined by the Chinese Communist Party, with red lines drawn everywhere, arbitrarily.  

Even professional integrity has gradually been eroded; instead, we hear “if I say OK, it’s OK” and ever-shifting standards for sinking MTR projects.

Under the Lion Rock, we no longer hear stories of upward mobility; instead, tens of thousands of families are crammed in subdivided units, while the rich cavort in vast golf  courses. And now the government wants to empty its treasury to build an artificial island for property developers.

Lies and pitfalls abound in the Hong Kong of today. What will the city of our next generation look like?

People ask me: “Why are you running again?”

We all have to step up when we hear the drumroll of desperation and injustice.

In the eighties, I entered the labor movement in the face of widespread exploitation.

After the 1989 Tiananmen Square massacre, I joined the Hong Kong Alliance in Support of Patriotic Democratic Movements in China.

In 1995, I joined the Legislative Council to fight for labor rights and democracy

In 1997, I was forced to step down after the handover; in 1998, I was elected again, with hopes of combating Chinese Communist intervention and fighting for our livelihoods.

But over the last two years, the Communist Party of China’s authoritarian inventions have only intensified. How can I stand on the sidelines?

In one struggle after another, I have won, and I have lost. But each time, I fought my hardest. These struggles aren’t just the business of politicians or any one social class; they bring people together, for the greater good of Hong Kong’s future.

We used to believe Hong Kong people were in charge of their own destinies. Each generation after another looked forward to a more open Hong Kong. Yet today’s government is increasingly ruthless, tyrannical and blind to the needs of society. It’s become increasingly hard to maintain a livelihood and for the young, to see a future. True universal suffrage has grown increasingly distant, with electoral candidates facing political screening, something once unimaginable for this city. Everything in the past two years has been a steady drumroll calling each one of us to step into the battlefield.

This by- election offers a choice between two futures for Hong Kong:

The pro-establishment camp represents the collusion of government and business interests, one that welcomes Chinese Communist intervention, violates our freedoms and opposes democracy. It also wants to pour a trillion Hong Kong dollars of taxpayers’ money, emptying our treasury, into an artificial island for Red Capitalist.

On the other hand, the pan-democrats and I stand for Hong Kong’s position as a global city anchored by the rule of law and freedoms, that spends taxpayers’ pmoney judiciously to improve livelihoods.

Hong Kong people may feel helpless, but if we look closely, there are still glimmers of hope. For 12 years, I fought with grassroots workers for a minimum wage. I stood with dockworkers and bar benders, and fought alongside airline staffs against former Chief Executive C.Y. Leung’s incident of abuses of power. I know the tall walls of establishment can seem insurmountable to one, but together, we can achieve the impossible. As someone who has once seen a Hong Kong filled with hope, I feel the responsibility to step up and re-discover that hope for our next generation.

Thus I accepted the mission in times of crisis and am taking Dr. Lau Siu-lai’s place in running for the by-election in Kowloon West. With your help and votes, we will win back the seat that belong to the people of Hong Kong. With a determined and strategic mind, we can resist the Communist erosion of Hong Kong values and safeguard the future of our next generation.

為下一代 背水一戰|李卓人參選宣言

這是一個是非顛倒,真假難分的時代。

本應是民主選舉,劉小麗卻被剝奪參選資格;

本應是與生俱來的言論、新聞、結社自由,卻被中共粗暴侵蝕,亂劃紅線;

本來的專業界線,漸漸褪色;港鐵工程沉降標準可以亂改、專業操守變成「我話 OK 就 OK」;

獅子山下,再也沒有向上流動的傳奇。萬千家庭蝸居劏房,大片高球場任由權貴享樂,政府還要淘空香港庫房,送一整個人工島給地產商炒賣。

今天香港沉淪處處,謊言處處。下一代的未來,如何是好?

===

有人問我:「為何你再次走出來?」
聞戰鼓、上戰場,我們就要走出來!

八十年代投身工運,
希望改變打工仔女被剝削的處境;

八九民運,中共開鎗鎮壓,
我自此投入支聯會運動;

九五年選舉,
我進入議會為勞權、為民主奮鬥;

九七年臨立會被逼下台,九八年再選入議會,
抗衡中共政權干預香港,為民生打拼;

到最近這兩年,中共更過分,我更要走出來!

一場又一場戰役,我有贏過,也有輸過。但每一次,我都搏到盡。抗爭更不止是「政治人物」的事,不只屬於任何一個階層,而是要連結更多的人,為香港的未來打拼。

我們曾經以為,香港人可以掌握自己命運,一整代人各自努力,準備在一個更加開放的香港落地生根。然而, 今日的政府日趨荒謬,獨裁專橫,對民間聲音視若無睹;基層生活朝不保夕,青年看不見未來。真普選遙遙無期,參選人要面對政治篩選;我們以前更無想像過香港會有政治犯。

兩年來的一切一切,
就是戰鼓聲,要我們走出來打仗。

===

今次補選是兩個未來香港的選擇:

保皇黨代表的是共官商利益共同體,配合中共干預香港,侵蝕自由丶反對民主,還要透過一萬億人工島工程,輸送利益紅色資本,掏空庫房。

民主派和我代表的是守護香港法治丶自由丶國際城市定位,更是守護庫房,善用公帑改善民生。

香港人也許一時感到無力,但其實只要我們細心看,香港仍然處處見人心。我和基層工人爭取最低工資,走了十二年;當年和碼頭工人、扎鐵工人為尊嚴同行;今天和空勤人員對抗 689「行李門」濫權不公,我知道一個人面對高牆,難免易感挫折,但只要團結一致,我們可化不可能為可能。

作為見證過香港充滿希望的一代,更有責任站出來,在堅持當中找回希望,為香港的下一代,爭權益,守公義;問是非,分真假!

我臨危受命,接替劉小麗參加九龍西補選,懇請大家同心協力,以選票奪回本應屬於香港人的議席,以信念、策略扺抗中共消滅香港價值的政治任務,守住下一代的未來!
