    accelerate(動詞)加速

    *Since China imposed a sweeping national security law on Hong Kong, tens of thousands of people have made plans to leave the city, many of whom chose to head for Britain, where holders of British National Overseas (B.N.O.) passports have been granted a pathway to work and citizenship in six years. As a new United Kingdom deadline “leave outside the rule (LOTR)” approaches, thousands of Hong Kong people have acclerated their plans to emigrate with BNO status. According to Britain’s immigration department, 34, 300 people applied for the special visa since January 31. 

    自中國在香港全面實施國安法以來,成千上萬的港人計畫離開這個城市,大多數人選擇申請英國國民海外護照(BNO)前往英國,以這樣的簽證可以在六年內在英國申請工作並活得公民身分。英國容許港人在BNO簽證生效前以LOTR條款前往英國,LOTR在英國時間周二即將屆滿,計畫離開的港人無不加速腳步趕在限期前出發,機場大爆離港人潮。根據英國移民局數據,自一月底開始接受港人BNO簽證計畫,到三月之間共收到34,000港人申請此簽證。


     




    diaspora(名詞)大流散

    Hong Kong had been promised 50 years of self-administration since its return to Chinese rule in 1997. However, the national security law cut that time short, prompting the British government to allow nearly three million people from Hong Kong to live and work in Britain through the special visa program. On April 8, the British government said it would spend₤43 millions to set up 12 centers to help Hong Kong’s BNO status holders and their families access housing, education and employment to build a life in the UK. Organizations like Justitia Hong Kong, run by more estabilished immigrants, was there to help newcomers adapt to London and to organize pro-democracy protests and other events in the city. As more and more migrants from Hong Kong rushed into Britain, some concerns arose, among which are being seen as taking the jobs of Britons during the time when economy has suffered from the pandemic, and the rising number of anti-Asian hate crimes within the diaspora.

    香港97回歸時,曾經獲保證由港人自治五十年,然而這個承諾在香港國安法推出後,立馬失效,促使英國政府出手讓近三百萬港人持特殊簽證在英國工作、生活。在四月八日,英國房屋社區及地方政府事務部稱將撥款4300萬英鎊來協助持BNO港人在英國的住房、教育及就業生活。由早期移民英國的港人組織的暖氣軍師撐香港(Justitia Hong Kong)也致力協助新來移民適應當地生活,並在倫敦組織民主抗爭運動及為其他活動發聲。隨著越來越多香港移民進入英國,不少隱憂也應運而生,例如在疫情影響下,經濟蕭條,這時港人入英可能被視為搶走他們的飯碗,還有在這波大逃離中,可能會有日益增多的反亞裔仇恨行為。
