【看英文中國郵報學英文】香港「反送中」抗爭持續延燒,週一日更發起「三罷」(罷工、罷課、罷市)及不合作運動,許多民眾紛紛響應;不過,來自台灣的知名手搖飲料店「一芳水果茶」卻在下午於官方微博表態支持「一國兩制」,掀起熱議。

Hong Kong’s anti-Extradition Bill protesters held a major strike on Monday didn’t please everyone, including a representative of Yifang Fruit Tea, a popular hand-shaken beverage brand, who expressed his/her support to the “one country, two systems” framework to Weibo. The controversial post, which also criticized the strike, caused a stir online.

「一芳水果茶」週一下午在官方微博發表聲明,高喊「堅決維護一國兩制,堅決反對暴力罷工」,並表示除個別政府建議,因為安全考量位在示威遊行核心區的店面之外,在香港的其他分店將堅持營業。同時更強調,目前有部分違約門店,已即刻採取解約、關店的動作,「倘有違反法律藐視國家的行為,必將嚴懲並保留進一步追究法律責任的權利,絕不允許任何意圖分裂國家的行徑!」

“We firmly support ‘one country, two systems’ framework and oppose the violent strike,” said the post, which also reminded protesters that the outlets located on the sidelines of the protest will be open. The statement also highlighted that closing stores during the protest would be considered as a “breach of contract.” “We won’t tolerate any action that lead to the split of our country,” the post said.

對此,一芳水果茶台灣公關表示,「相關文章並不是台灣總公司聲明」;香港總代理也發聲明指出「一切言論與香港總代理無關」;而台灣多家加盟店也紛紛在臉書發聲明,表示「反對一國兩制」。

In response to the issue, a spokesperson of Taiwan’s Yifang said the headquarters did not publish the statement, while some franchise stores in Taiwan published to Facebook statements opposing the “one country, two systems” framework. Meanwhile, Yifang’s Hong Kong general agent also claimed that the original post had nothing to do with them.

一芳水果茶伊通店更直接表達不滿,直言「不認同香港代理商擅自發出的聲明,我們反對一國兩制、堅信身而為人都應享有自由跟民主」。

“We don’t agree with the post written by the Hong Kong outlets. We disagree with the ‘one country, two systems’ and believe in liberty and democracy,” wrote a franchise store located in Taipei.
