省长韦恩:“我们在安省的责无旁贷,必需为罗兴亚人发声,强烈谴责那个地区内的滥杀暴行”

安省省长韦恩今日(週三)发表声明,表达了她对缅甸罗兴亚(Rohingya)难民的惨痛遭遇寄予同情,并宣佈省府拨款100万元予以援助。以下是她的声明全文﹕

“缅甸若开邦(Rakhine)罗兴亚人遭遇屠杀,人权受到严重的侵犯,举世震惊,骇人听闻。自从今年8月,罗兴亚人遭遇的连串袭击,再次迫使600,000多万人逃亡至孟加拉,诚如联合国所指,这些侵袭行为酿成了全球急速恶化的难民危机。如何终止这些侵犯人权的罪行,如何终止这些灭族清洗的行动,责任自是落在缅甸的军方领袖以及它的人民政府身上。

安省很多人在缅甸大屠杀中经历了痛苦与痛楚。本週初,我到基秦拿(Kitchener)探访了罗兴亚社区人士,倾听了他们忆述所受痛苦与迫害的惨况,亲身感受他们令人痛心疾首的口述,促使我更深信不疑的是,国际社会必须从速伸出援手,停止这种残暴的行为。

同样急切的是,我们必需提供人道援助,拯救那些还在受到暴政涂炭的罗兴亚人。在支持援救的行动上,安省政府将捐助100万元给两个机构,其中500,000元交予加拿大红十字会,另外500,000元给予无国界医生加拿大支部。加拿大红十字会正在孟加拉援助数以十万计的罗兴亚难民,供应蓬帐、食物及食水、卫生用品等,并致力于防止性别暴力事件的发生。给予无国界医生加拿大支部的捐款,将有助于医疗人员提供更多优质的医疗护理、紧急卫生及精神服务等,照料陷于这个危机的人们。

同时,本人十分支持联邦政府与其他国家联手,合力向缅甸政府施加压力。我感到鼓舞的是,前任安省省长李博(Bob Rae)已获委任为加拿大的特使,前往那个地区去视察,实地了解状况。长久以来,他以伸张正义人权而闻名于世,自是执行这个重任的最佳人选。

我们在安省的责无旁贷,必需为罗兴亚人发声,强烈谴责那个地区内的滥杀暴行。在世上的每一个人,都应得到一个安全的居所、不受迫害的自由,以及在法律下人人平等的待遇。”

"I am appalled by the killings and other gross violations of human rights as part of a widespread attack against the Rohingya people in Myanmar's Rakhine State. The attacks have caused an additional 600,000 Rohingya to flee to Bangladesh since August, creating what the United Nations calls the world's fastest-growing refugee crisis. These are crimes against humanity -- and responsibility for ending this ethnic cleansing falls squarely on Myanmar's military leadership and its civilian government.

Many people here in Ontario have experienced the pain and anguish of the atrocities in Myanmar. Earlier this week, I met with members of the Rohingya community in Kitchener to listen to their stories of suffering and persecution. Hearing their heartbreaking experiences first-hand reinforced my belief that the international community must act urgently to end this brutality.

With similar urgency, we are compelled to provide humanitarian assistance for the people who continue to suffer at the hands of a brutal regime. To support these relief efforts, the Ontario government will contribute $1 million to two organizations. Ontario will provide $500,000 to the Canadian Red Cross, which is providing assistance for hundreds of thousands of people in Bangladesh, including shelter, food and water, hygiene and sanitation, with an additional focus on the prevention of gender-based violence. Ontario will provide $500,000 to Médecins Sans Frontières Canada to support quality medical aid, emergency sanitation and mental health services for people suffering in the crisis.

I am also supportive and appreciative of our federal government's efforts to work with other countries to exert pressure on the Myanmar regime. I am encouraged by the appointment of former Ontario premier Bob Rae as Canada's special envoy to the region. He is an excellent choice for this mission because of his long record of strong leadership on human rights.

We in Ontario must be vocal in our calls for the rights of Rohingya people and against the atrocities being committed in the region. Everyone in the world deserves a safe place to call home, freedom from persecution, and full equality under the law."
