【命運自主 由社區開始】

多年來,香港人在民主運動的參與大多自限於
「被動員」的位置,向代議士或政府提出訴求,等待回應,未有在生活和工作的社區實踐民主,因而缺乏自決精神和民主組織經驗。這是政權建制刻意促成的。過去三十年,行政當局獨攬香港各級政治大權,徹底扼殺社區自主的可能,只剩下被親北京政團控制的區議會和鄉事委員會,地區政治淪落為腐敗瑣碎的分餅遊戲。

雨傘運動令很多香港人體會到,面對面的社區參與和公共討論,是令香港民主運動重新得力的關鍵。我們因此發起「社區公民約章運動」,希望支持民主運動的市民成為「社區公民」,積極參與地方組織選舉,改造政治諮詢和決策過程,建立有意義的社區生活和新的政治文化,讓「真普選」和「命運自主」首先在社區落實。


<< We hold that the democratic movement in Hong Kong must rebuild and fortify its foundation, and this begins at the community level>>


For many years, Hong Kong people have struggled for democracy from a position of passivity. Instead of fostering a bottom up approach and incorporating democratic elements into the daily work and lives of the citizenry, past movements have largely been marked by an appeal to authority and an anticipation for response, as such the spirit of self determination and self organization for democratization have been sorely lacking. This state of affairs have been purposely propagated by the powers that be. For the past 30 years, the government have cultivated a monopoly on all levels of Hong Kong politics, systematically vanquishing any possibilities for communities to decide their own policies, all that remains are the District council and rural communities which are tightly controlled by the Beijing cartels. The result is that community politics have disintegrated into a sordid game of power distribution for the powerful and wealthy.

The umbrella movement gave us a glimpse of what could be, the key to unlocking Hong Kong’s true potential and the success of our democratic movement hinges on deep community involvement and public discussions. It is for this very reason that we have initiated the “The Community Citizen Charter”, our vision is to transform democratic supporters into “community conscious citizens”, to rejuvenate their enthusiasm for participating in local elections, to instigate reformation in the public inquiry and decision making process, to create a meaningful community life and a new political climate, to realize “real democracy” and “self determination” on the community level.
