孫中山博士的話 Dr Sun Yat-sen quote

"政府應培訓和指導人民掌握政治知識和能力,從而使他們能夠行使選舉,罷免,主動權和全民投票的權力"

"The government should train and direct the people in their acquisition of political knowledge and ability, thereby enabling them to exercise the powers of election, recall, initiative, and referendum."



The wording of the petition:

請願書的措辭:


“To restore prosperity and stability to Hong Kong now and beyond 2047, there is a need for an immediate political solution. We call for a referendum as a political solution for China’s anticipatory breach of the 1984 Sino - British Joint Declaration on the Question of Hong Kong.”

“為了從現在到2047年恢復香港的穩定,有必要立即採取政治解決方案。我們呼籲舉行全民公投,作為中國預期違反1984年 中英聯合聲明” 的政治解決方案。”

支援文字(數位請參閱下面的參考文獻):


The referendum will contain questions covering the election by universal and equal suffrage of a new democratic Hong Kong government, its new Chief Executive and Legislative Council. The referendum will provide the mandate upon which the new democratic government of the SAR can address the remaining demands(1) of protesters including amnesty, and an independent inquiry into Police and government operations.

全民投票將涉及和新民主香港政府、新一屆行政長官和立法會的普選和平等選舉權的問題。全民投票將規定特區新民主政府可以處理抗議者的剩餘要求(1)包括特赦,以及對員警和政府運作進行獨立調查。


A referendum which is then acted upon negates the anticipatory breach(2) by China and leaves it with no effect, so the Joint Declaration(3) can continue in principle ‘as amended’. Endorsing the referendum which is then acted upon would be the proper reaction of the British and Chinese governments as it would right the wrong, and correct and nullify the breach.

全民投票隨後付諸行動,否定了中方的預見性違反(2)使其無效,因此《聯合聲明》(3)原則上可以繼續"修正"。支持當時採取行動的全民投票,是中英兩國政府的正確反應,因為它會糾正錯誤,糾正和廢除違約行為。


Both the Chief Executive of Hong Kong and the officials of central government in China must respect and uphold the terms of the Joint Declaration, ensuring a high degree of autonomy and protecting the people of Hong Kong and their way of life. Although the Joint Declaration is valid until 2047, it can serve the best interests, hopes and aspirations of Hong Kong far beyond that. Besides the impact on ordinary citizens of Hong Kong, failure to grant a high degree of autonomy(4) puts in jeopardy the special trading status of the city state(5), weakens the effectiveness of its government and undermines the functioning of the ‘one country, two systems’ policy.

香港行政長官和中央政府官員都必須尊重和擁護聯合聲明的條款,確保高度自治,保護港人的生活方式。雖然聯合聲明有效期至2047年,但對香港的最佳利益、希望和願望,可以遠遠超出這個目標。除了對香港普通市民的影響外,未能給予高度自治權(4)會危及香港的特殊貿易地位(5)削弱政府的效力,破壞"一國兩制"政策的運作。

Note: So far WTPOHK has pinned our referendum blogs at the top of our website - we have now decided to unpin these blogs. In recognition of the referendums that have already taken place (the latest being the pro-democrats LegCo primaries) we have decided to date them on 11 July 2020 (the first day of the primaries).
