知名法律學者,哈佛法學院教授 Duncan Kennedy 發表聲明: 憂心警察暴力、支持台灣民主

Duncan Kennedy, distinguished legal scholar, professor at Harvard Law School, expresses concern about police violence and supports Taiwan's democracy


March, 27, 2014

"My name is Duncan Kennedy and I am a professor of law at Harvard Law School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. I am writing to express my concern over the use of force deployed by law enforcement officials toward peaceful and unarmed student protesters in Taiwan. Taiwan's vibrant democracy has allowed for robust political discussions on important social issues. I join those urging the government in Taiwan to act in accordance with the fundamental principles embodied by its Constitution, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights in dealing with peaceful protests. We hope that the government in Taiwan can continue to engage in constructive dialogues with its protesters and take active steps to reach a peaceful and democratic resolution."
