【禁聞】中緬邊界難民湧入 中共未援手

【新唐人2012年2月11日訊】緬甸政府軍跟克欽族武裝組織衝突升級,緊鄰中緬邊界的中國雲南省盈江縣城和瑞麗市,有大量難民通過各種民間途徑,進入雲南境內躲避和尋求庇護,中共當局聲稱:緬甸內部事情不予插手,不給予援助,目前當地教會正在全力援助難民。

自去年6月9號緬甸政府軍與克欽獨立軍發生軍事衝突以來,到目前為止,仍然沒有停火的跡象。中緬邊境瑞麗、隴川、盈江一線地區陸續湧入大量難民。

雲南省盈江基督教會牧師密秉興透露,目前聚集在邊境線上的緬甸難民有6,7萬人﹔進入盈江的就有1萬多。

牧師密秉興:「現在難民還是逐步的在增加,很多人在緬甸邊境線上,大概有7萬左右,在緬甸和中國邊境線上的還有6萬,1萬左右在國內,都湧入我們這邊的。」

密秉興牧師說,難民們處境非常困難,他們缺衣少食又無家可歸,都是教會在幫,當局沒有提供幫助。

牧師密秉興:「他們說是他們(緬甸)內部的事情嘛,他們內部的事情...他們說不好插手。難民的情況還需要很多的幫助,主要是吃的這些,那些人多的,我們教會幫助了一些,其他教會的也幫助一些。」

密秉興還表示,目前一部分難民染上了痢疾和肺結核等傳染病,急需治療。

英國《金融時報》報導,跟以往不同,中共當局這次似乎在限制難民湧入,還封鎖了相關消息。報導引用當地援助人員的話說,當局2月幾次試圖封鎖邊境。

「中國民主黨」全委會泰國負責人程維民認為,當局不讓緬甸難民進來是可以預料的。

程維民:「他(中共)近期以來,發現緬甸的政治方面已經有了轉變,比如說,在美國和歐盟的長期作用下,緬甸軍政府和反對派的勢力,尤其是翁山蘇姬,他們已經逐步的向著一個,所謂的民主和平過度的這麽一個道路上走。」

程維民指出,中緬合營的油管,在克欽族的根據地上,緬甸克欽族就是中國的景頗族人,現在緬甸難民進入中國境內,中共卻因為政治利益怕得罪緬甸當局,而不顧人道救援。

程維民:「這一次緬甸政府採取的這個攻打少數民族地區這個武裝勢力的行動,中共是看到這個趨勢已定,所以它就不敢去公開的跟緬甸政府挑戰,它就是給予為了它們的既得利益,它們的某些政治上的利益,所以它不顧民族感情,不顧血肉同胞的生死安危,它們只是顧及到它們的政治命運政治上的一些方面。」

前「山東大學」教授孫文廣指出,從人道主義和國際義務方面來說,中共當局對待緬甸難民這件事,讓人看清了中共宣傳一套,做起來又是另外一套的欺世作風。

孫文廣:「中國(共)說的和做的是不一樣的,按照它們一貫宣傳的就是對國外,要實行國際主義的這個義務,要盡到它的義務,按照它宣傳的這個觀點的話,它應該是歡迎這些人到中國來,給他們一些幫助,使他們生活上有些著落,在這個情況下它就暴露出,它對真正的人道它是不關心的,而是宣傳上是一套,做起來又是另外一套。」

緬甸5700萬人口卻高達135個民族,1948年獨立後,政府和各族對當初獨立時達成的「協議」解讀分歧,多個民族就自治權等問題與政府爆發數十年的武裝衝突。

「中國基督徒記者協會」呼籲:緬甸政府軍及克欽邦民族武裝組織盡早達成和解條約,早日實現停火。

美國和歐盟都曾主張,解除對緬甸制裁的關鍵條件之一是,緬甸政府應解決與獨立武裝組織間的衝突。

CCP Refuses the Burmese Refugees

The conflict between Burma's army

and the Kachin Independence Army escalated.

Using covert ways, Burmese refugees swarmed to Yunnan

province along the China-Burma border to seek asylum.

Yet the Chinese Communist Party' (CCP) regime

claimed not to offer aid.

The regime explicitly stated not to intervene in the issue,

for it is Burma's internal affairs.

So far, these refugees' living in Yunnan are all relying

on local churches' assistance.

The armed conflict between Burma's military and the Kachin

Independence Army still keeps going since June 2011.

Huge fluxes of Burmese refugees entered China's Ruili city,

Longchuan, Yingjiang, areas along China--Burma border.

Mi Bingxing, Christian priest in Yunnan province, reveals that

about 70,000 Burmese refugees are gathering at the border.

Yingjiang County has experienced influxes

of 10,000 refugees, said Mi.

Mi Bingxing: "So far, the number of refugees keeps growing.

Lots of people are staying at Burma's border, around 70,000.

About 60,000 of them are flocking at China--Burma border,

another 10,000 have flowed into our region."

These Burmese refugees are in a really difficult situation,

homeless, without food and clothing, said Mi Bingxing.

Yet CCP's regime did not offer any help to them, all aids

they have gotten so far came from local churches.

Mi Bingxing: "They (the regime) said that's Burma's

internal affairs….saying they cannot intervene with it.

The refugees still need a lot of help, mainly food.

The Christian church I stay with helped a lot,

other churches also offered much to some of them."

Mi reflects that some of the refugees have contracted

infectious diseases, like dysentery and tuberculosis, etc..

They are in urgent need of medical treatment.

UK's Financial Times reported that the CCP' regime seems

to restrict the refugees' influx this time.

The regime even blocked related news reports.

UK's reports quoted local aid workers that the CCP' regime

attempted to seal off the border in February several times.

Cheng Weimin, Thailand branch director of Democracy Party

of China, says it is expected that CCP will keep refugees out.

Cheng Weimin: "It (the CCP) found that Burma's

government is making a political shift recently.

For example, under the long-term impact of US and EU,

the Burmese military government and the opposition forces, especially Aung San Suu Kyi, are gradually joining paths.

Step by step, they have headed for the path

of transition to democracy and peace."

Cheng Weimin mentions about the oil and gas pipelines,

a joined venture by CCP' regime and Burma's government.

The joint project is located in Kachin's base area.

In Burma's Kachin region lives China's Jingpo ethic group.

Yet the CCP' regime did not provide

any humanitarian relief to Burma's refugees.

Cheng reviews the reason behind it – CCP fears offending

Burma's authorities politically.

Cheng Weimin: "This time, Burmese army initiated attack

in the area of ethnic minority.

The CCP' regime realized the trend is unlikely to turn back,

so it dared not openly challenge Burma's government.

For its vested interests and political reasons, it naturally

ignores ethnic sentiments and the ethic group's safety.

CCP' regime only concern is its own political interests."

Professor Sun Wenguang from Shandong University,

uncovers the CCP regime's deceiving mask on the issue.

CCP's handling of Burmese refugees is in reality different

from its propaganda, Prof. Sun said.

Prof. Sun: "The CCP regime's acts belied its words.

It always touts to implement international obligations.

In this case, it should've welcomed these refugees to China.

It should've offered aids to these people for settlement here.

But now the regime is exposed that doesn't care about them.

All its claims are just propaganda, nothing is put in practice.”

Burma, a population of 57 million,

consists of 135 ethic groups.

The “agreement” about independence reached in 1948,

diverged thereafter among the different parties.

The concerned parties include Burma's government

and the ethic groups.

Some issues like autonomy triggered decades of armed

conflicts between ethic groups and Burma's government.

The Association of Chinese Christian Journalists called for

immediate agreement for ceasefire between both parties.

The US and EU stated one of the key conditions

to lift sanctions against Burma.

That is, Burma's government should resolve the conflict

with independent armed organizations.
