长沙富能机构三位公益人士程渊、刘永泽、小吴被国家安全部门刑拘一事持续在国内国际产生反响。北京时间7月31日,一封由61个国际机构联名的呼吁信发往联合国艾滋病规划署项目协调委员会中国代表团,呼吁中国立即释放程渊、刘永泽及小吴,并撤销对他们的所有控罪。联名信还发往了联合国艾滋病规划署、联合国多个人权工作组、全球基金等机构的负责人。
 
这61个联名机构包括全球艾滋病毒感染者网络、纳尔逊·曼德拉结核病和艾滋社区信息和资源中心、人权观察等,来自亚洲、非洲、拉丁美洲、加勒比地区、以及东欧等的数十个国家。超过三分之二的机构工作在抗击艾滋病第一线。在联名信上签名的还有129位个人。
 
联名信介绍了长沙三位公益人士被抓捕事件。7月22日星期一,程渊和两位同事刘永泽及小吴均告失踪。国家安全部门的警官随后联系上刘永泽的律师,称刘永泽被指控“涉嫌颠覆国家政权罪”。程渊的妻子施明磊和程渊的公益机构全无关系,但她亦被羁押及审问,并被以“涉嫌颠覆国家政权罪”监视居住。
 
联名信表示,长沙富能的程渊、刘永泽和小吴就终止对艾滋病感染者的歧视、推进健康权和残疾人权利做了重要的工作。程渊在过去十年代理了一系列关于艾滋病感染者及其他健康权利的突破性的影响力诉讼——首先在南京天下公机构、后来作为长沙富能机构的联合创办人。其中,他的两个在2013年及2016年的里程碑式的诉讼,为遭受艾滋歧视而失去工作的两位老师争取到了赔偿。程渊亦代理了反乙肝歧视的诉讼、为残疾人权利作了有力的倡议、呼吁结束一胎化政策,促进政府信息公开和法治,及进行了更多其他的工作。
 
联名信指出,作为联合国艾滋病规划署的管理委员会的主席,中国在全球对艾滋病的反应中扮演着关键的领导角色。艾滋病规划署建议各国资助和支持与艾滋病相关的法律服务,以减少污名和歧视,全球基金并承诺在多个国家扩大这些工作——这正是长沙富能的专业领域。作为联合国艾滋病规划署项目协调委员会的主席,中国不仅要捍卫、而且要为世界树立一个正面的榜样去促进联合国就结束艾滋病和终止歧视的承诺。 中国应该嘉奖和宣传长沙富能的工作,给国际社会树立一个的良好示范,而不是惩罚它。
 
联署这封呼吁信的Meg Davis博士是日内瓦Graduate Institute的高级研究员、资深艾滋病问题专家,Meg Davis表示:“全世界正在竞相努力在2030年之前终结艾滋,包括零歧视的目标。中国应该引领这一全球性的竞逐,而不是浪费时间监禁其最好的反歧视活动家。 我知道程渊个人是一个忠诚无私的健康维权人士。 他应该是中国的年度最佳公益法律人士之一。他为什么会在监狱里?”
 
长沙富能机构的联合创办人杨占青表示,程渊、刘永泽、小吴等人的工作主要是促进弱势群体的权益。多个国家的61家机构联名信表明,程渊等人在维护艾滋感染者权利等健康权领域的贡献得到了广泛的认同,中国国家安全部门以政治罪名抓捕这些公益人士的做法在国际上已经造成了极其不良的影响。

30 July 2019
Dear Mr. Li and colleagues,
We write to call on China to immediately release three prominent anti-discrimination lawyers and activists who are believed to be wrongly detained. Cheng Yuan, Liu Yongze and Xiao Wu of Changsha Funeng have done important work to end discrimination against people living with HIV and to advance the right to health and rights of persons with disabilities in China. As chair of the Programme Coordinating Board (PCB), which has set a goal of zero HIV-related discrimination by 2030, China should release these three legal activists.  
Cheng Yuan has led over a decade of ground-breaking impact litigation on rights of people living with HIV and other health rights -- first at Tianxiagong, and later as co-founder of Changsha Funeng. Two of his landmark cases, in 2013 and 2016, won damages for teachers who lost their jobs due to their HIV status. Cheng Yuan has also led work on hepatitis B discrimination litigation, advocated forcefully for the rights of persons with disabilities and for an end to China's One Child Policy, and worked to promote freedom of information and rule of law, and more. 
Last week, Cheng Yuan traveled to Hong Kong on personal and organizational business. On Monday, 22 July, Cheng and two colleagues, Liu Yongze and Xiao Wu, disappeared. Local police stated that they did not know their whereabouts, but CCTV recordings showed them being seized by a group of people. State Security then contacted a lawyer representing Liu Yongze, and said that Liu was facing charges of subverting state power. Cheng Yuan’s wife, Shi Minglei, has nothing to do with his NGO, but she was also detained and interrogated, and placed under residential surveillance under suspicion of subverting state power.
As chair of the governance board of UNAIDS, China plays a critical leadership role in the global HIV response. As you know, UN member states committed to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in 2015, and in doing so committed to ending HIV by 2030, to combating hepatitis, to promoting peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, and to achieving "zero discrimination" against people living with HIV. UNAIDS, the Global Network of People Living with HIV (GNP+), UNDP and UN WOMEN jointly launched the Global Partnership for Action to Eliminate All Forms of HIV-Related Stigma and Discrimination. To achieve this, UNAIDS recommends countries finance and support HIV-related legal services to reduce stigma and discrimination, and the Global Fund has committed to scaling up this work in numerous countries -- it is exactly the kind of work in which Changsha Funeng has expertise. 
China has ratified the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, which upholds the right to health, as well as the Convention Against Torture, and has committed to many other human rights standards. 
As chair of the UNAIDS PCB, China must not only uphold, but set a positive example to the world, of promoting UN commitments to end HIV and end discrimination. China should be rewarding and showcasing the work of Changsha Funeng as a good practice to the international community, not punishing it. We respectfully urge China to immediately release Cheng Yuan, Liu Yongze and Xiao Wu and drop all charges against them. 
Sincerely,

李明柱先生及各位同事:
 
我们本次致信呼吁中国立即释放3位知名反歧视公益倡导者,我们相信他们正被错误羁押。长沙富能的程渊、刘永泽和小吴就终止对艾滋病感染者的歧视、推进健康权和残疾人权利做了重要的工作。联合国艾滋病规划署方桉协调委员会设订了在2030年达到零艾滋歧视的目标,作为该委员会的主席,中国应释放该三名公益人士。
 
程渊在过去十年代理了一系列关于艾滋病感染者及其他健康权利的突破性的影响力诉讼——首先在南京天下公机构、后来作为长沙富能机构的联合创办人。其中,他的两个在2013年及2016年的里程碑式的诉讼,为遭受艾滋歧视而失去工作的两位老师争取到了赔偿。程渊亦代理了反乙肝歧视的诉讼、为残疾人权利作了有力的倡议、呼吁结束一胎化政策,促进政府信息公开和法治,及进行了更多其他的工作。
 
两周前,程渊曾赴香港处理公私事务。7月22日星期一,程渊和两位同事,刘永泽及小吴均告失踪。在家属前往寻人时,当地警方称不清楚三人的去向, 但监控录像显示他们被一群人带走。国家安全部门的警官随后联系上刘永泽的律师,并指刘永泽被指控“涉嫌颠覆国家政权罪”。程渊的妻子施明磊和程渊的公益机构全无关系,但她亦被羁押及审问,并被以“涉嫌颠覆国家政权罪”监视居住。
作为联合国艾滋病规划署的管理委员会的主席,中国在全球对艾滋病的反应中扮演着关键的领导角色。如您所知 ,联合国成员国于2015年订下了「2030年可持续发展议程」,其中包括于2030年结束艾滋病、抗击肝炎、促进和平及包容的社会以利于可持续发展、并实现艾滋病零歧视。  艾滋病规划署,全球艾滋病毒感染者网络(GNP +),联合国开发计划署和联合国妇女署联合发起了消除一切形式的艾滋病相关污名和歧视的全球伙伴行动。 为实现这一目标,艾滋病规划署建议各国资助和支持与艾滋病相关的法律服务,以减少污名和歧视,全球基金并承诺在多个国家扩大这些工作——这正是长沙富能的专业领域。
 
中国已经批准了《经济、社会和文化权利国际公约》,其中就包括健康权。中国也已经批准了《禁止酷刑公约》等人权公约。作为联合国艾滋病规划署项目协调委员会的主席,中国不仅要捍卫、而且要为世界树立一个正面的榜样去促进联合国就结束艾滋病和终止歧视的承诺。 中国应该嘉奖和宣传长沙富能的工作,给国际社会树立一个的良好示范,而不是惩罚它。
我们敬请中国立即释放程渊、刘永泽及小吴,并撤销对他们的所有控罪。
