對林鄭月娥獲頒榮譽院士之公開信

蔣郝琪院長,

我們眾下款人高度關注林鄭月娥女士獲頒榮譽院士一事。據 貴院年刊所示,林女士於去年獲 貴院頒授榮譽院士,其因林女士遞及香港特別行政區行政長官一職。[1] 惟林女士任職其間,屢次濫用職權,其所為危及香港民主進展、學術與言論自由,與 貴院以至所屬大學秉持之原則背道而馳。貴院一直堅守學術、言論自由以及追求民主多元等核心價值,林女士悖其而行,此足沃爾森學院重新考量頒之院士之決定,亦為眾下款人於此信之訴求。

於林女士所帶領下的港府曾多次打壓持民主理念之學者。陳雲根、陳文敏、戴耀廷、鄭松泰等,不勝其數,其職務受政府施壓下均被移除,又或升職受礙。[2] 於本年,戴耀廷教授因於台灣一學術論壇發表「若中國實現民主,香港有可能獨立」之意見,受港府公開猛烈抨擊。[3,4] 林女士領政府干犯學術與言論自由之舉,鐵證如山。

同於本年,政府褫奪多名支持自決或港獨之公民的選舉權(詳見附表一)。[5] 六名已當選議員亦因之而取消資格(詳見附表二)。[6] 本年中,林女士以及其所領之港府讉責香港外國記者會主持一論壇,衹因論壇講者為香港民族黨主席陳浩天。[7] 及後,政府一方更禁止該論壇主持人兼外國記者會主席馬凱訪港。[8] 諸如此行,皆證林女士圖毀 貴院珍而重之的言論自由及民主發展。

林女士罄竹難書,所舉之例,僅為冰山一角。我們深信沃爾森學院絕不贊同,亦不應贊同林女士之所作所為。予之榮譽院士,實為墮坑落塹;貴院成員應以林女士為恥。我們眾下款人望 貴院繩愆糾謬,重新考慮頒予林女士榮譽院士之決定。

衷心促請 貴院量過思後。
