第三屆亞太綠人大會 議決通過多元性別權益決議文

第三屆亞太綠人大會(2015 APGF 3rd Congress - Wellington, New Zealand)於今年6月12至14日在紐西蘭舉行,長期推動多元成家法案的台灣伴侶權益推動聯盟許秀雯律師偕同台灣綠黨出席此會。由許秀雯律師草擬的一項多元性別權益保障決議文,在代表團的努力下,獲得來自十多個亞太國家的綠黨無異議通過。此決議文為亞太綠人大會第一次通過有關多元性別的決議文,成功促成多元性別的跨國結盟。

決議文草擬者許秀雯欣見此進展,並分享此行與多國綠黨國會議員會談的心得。她表示澳洲國會議員Janet Rice在聽到台灣民調有半數以上支持同性婚姻,但兩大黨卻欠缺堅定的政治意志推動婚姻平權法案後,深有同感地表示澳洲面臨很相像的狀況。但澳洲保守黨的總理Tony Abbott日前已經鬆口表示,可以開放黨員良心投票,婚姻平權已露出曙光。面對台灣局勢,Janet Rice認為將多元性別的議題放上政治議程是重要的,支持者若能凝聚政治實力,成功的腳步應該可以快點到來。

李根政:亞太綠黨大會承認台灣為主權獨立國家

台灣綠黨參加亞太區域綠黨大會(APGF)促成實踐多元性別主流化等多項決議

記者陳俊廷/高雄報導, Peoplesnews.tw 2015-06-17 21:17

台灣綠黨共同召集人李根政17日指出,日前參與在紐西蘭首都威靈頓城舉辦的亞太綠黨大會,與澳洲、紐西蘭、日本、韓國等十個國家綠黨國會議員及代表會面,提出包括承認台灣為主權獨立國家等五項決議獲得大會通過。

綠黨指出,相較於台灣在國際社會中處處碰壁,無法與各國政府建立正式外交關係的處境下,台灣綠黨積極與亞太地區綠黨建立起的網絡與友誼,實為珍貴的外交資產,值得長期深耕發展。
