堅守學術自由 抵抗政治審 — 就《中國季刊》刪除文章事件的聲明 Statement by Progressive Scholars Group over the removal of individual articles from China Quarterly

【堅守學術自由 抵抗政治審查】
【Preserving academic freedom, resisting political censorship】

我們關注到劍橋大學出版社遵從中國當局指令,將旗下著名學術期刊《中國季刊》300多篇文章從其中國網站上刪除,而文章多數關於天安門、文革、西藏、新疆、台灣和香港。就今次事件,「高教公民」有以下回應:
We notice that the Cambridge University Press (CUP) has, at the request of the Chinese authorities, pulled over 300 articles and book reviews on its China site originally published by its prestigious journal China Quarterly (CQ). The articles removed are mostly related to Tiananmen, Cultural Revolution, Tibet, Xinjiang, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Regarding to this incident, the “Progressive Scholars Group” has the following responses:

1. 我們擔心,今次事件反映中國政府正嘗試干預境外地區的學術自由,而事件可能只是冰山一角、又或者是更大規模政治審查的序幕。
We worry that the Chinese Government is trying to intervene the academic freedom of territories outside its jurisdiction. This incident may be just the tip of the iceberg or it is the beginning of a larger scale of political censorship.

2. 我們要求,全球各地學術出版社必須堅守學術自由,並拒絕屈從於中國政府的施壓。學術出版社應該是學術自由的堡壘,不應輕易在政治和巿場壓力之下放棄原則。
We urge academic publishers around the world to preserve academic freedom and refuse to bend to the pressure of the Chinese Government. Academic publishers should be the defenders of academic freedom and they should not lightly give up such a principle.

3. 我們呼籲,全球各地學者團結起來,共同抵抗任何形式的政治審查。
We call on all scholars around the world to stand firm and join hands for resisting all forms of political censorship. 

學術自由是現代文明的基石。讓我們團結一起,守護這個我們珍而重之的核心價值。
Academic freedom is the cornerstone of modern civilization. Let’s work together to preserve this core value that we treasure.
