文／沈志霖 译／杨婉柔致WHO干事长谭德塞先生：您在2020年4月8日在WHO日内瓦总部的记者会中提到，自己在防疫期间收到死亡威胁和种族歧视，时间长达2至3个月，点名说他是黑人、黑鬼，且强调「这些攻击就来自台湾」，您还说：「我今天直接说，来自台湾。台湾外交部也知道这个活动，但他们没有回避，反而开始跟着侮辱、毁谤批评我。」▲WHO干事长谭德塞。（图／翻摄打马悍将粉丝团）事实上，您记者会上公然针对台湾做的指控，完全没有证据也绝非事实，台湾人民对您的批评是针对您及您目前所领导的WHO，对外标榜的目标是协助全球对抗疾病，但这次来自中国武汉的新型冠状病毒，到目前为止已经让全球有超过140万人确诊，美国更是高达1万3000多人死亡；难道都与WHO的疏忽、通报动作慢、坦护我党、隐匿疫情，造成病毒不断地传染无关？难道防疫不是世界卫生组织应该要负起的责任吗？事实上身为长久以来被WHO漠视、被我党无情无理打压的「台湾」，不但从来没有种族歧视的文化，反而是一个包容各种族的国家，台湾以有来自世界各地的「新台湾人」而自豪，甚至台湾篮球国家代表队更在2014年，任命原美籍黑人的规化球员戴维斯担任国家代表队的队长！台湾向来以对各国旅客的友善、热情着称，只是您总是心向我党、心中没有台湾、不愿意了解台湾，才会有所不知而以。诚如台湾外交部针对您所发出声明，台湾为成熟及高素养的先进民主国家，绝无鼓动国人针对WHO干事长本人进行人身攻击的情事，更不可能发表任何种族歧视的言论。您无端指控我国政府及台湾人民对他本人进行抹黑攻击，子虚乌有的指控严重误导国际视听，对此表达强烈不满与高度遗憾，并提出最严正的抗议。您及您目前所领导的WHO防疫作为漏洞百出，导致如今的惨状，却从不自我检讨，还利用WHO的光环与资源，公然在国际记者会上栽赃、抹黑防疫表现名列前茅的台湾，在您的领导下，WHO早已失能，甚至已沦为我党的附随组织CHO，因此，我们要求您道歉、下台！台湾公民 敬上To Dr. Tedros, Director-General of WHO:In the April 8, 2020 press conference at WHO Headquarters in Geneva, you claimed to have received death threats and racist insults while fighting the coronavirus pandemic in the past three months, and emphasized that "this attack came from Taiwan". You stated further, that "I will be straight today. From Taiwan... And Taiwan, the Foreign Ministry also, they know the campaign. They didn't disassociate themselves. They even started criticizing me in the middle of all that insult and slur." You went as far to stress in anger, "that's enough!"The allegations you made against Taiwan during the press conference was completely untrue and baseless. Taiwanese people have been criticizing your leadership over the WHO, in which it broadcasts its aim to fight against global pandemics. Yet the Chinese Wuhan coronavirus has so far infected over 1.4 million people worldwide, with more than 13,000 death in the United States alone. Didn't the neglect by the WHO, delayed reporting and whitewashing China's coverup of the epidemic have anything to do with the continuous widespread of the pandemic we're facing today? Isn't epidemic prevention the responsibility that the World Health Organization should shoulder?The truth is, as a nation long been ignored by the WHO, and ruthlessly repressed by China, Taiwan has not only ever tolerated any type of discrimination, it is a country that embraces all ethnic groups. Taiwan is proud of all of its new residents immigrated from all across the globe. In 2014, Taiwan named Quincy Davis, an immigrant originally an African American, the captain of the National Basketball team. Taiwan has been known for its friendliness and enthusiasm with open arms to travelers from abroad. Unfortunately you have your ears glued to China and never gotten to know, or willing to learn about Taiwan, that resulted in your ignorance towards Taiwan.As stated by Taiwan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, as a mature and advanced democratic country, Taiwan would never incite its citizens to instigate personal attacks against the Director-General of the WHO, it certainly would not possibly make any such representations involving racial discrimination.You have made baseless accusations against the government and the people of Taiwan for raising personal attack campaign, such false accusations are misleading to the international community. For that, we express profound regret and raise the strongest protest over these groundless accusations.You and the WHO, under your leadership, have failed miserably over the handling of the coronavirus pandemic that led to the overwhelming tragedy across the globe. Yet you failed to examine your own actions and failure to act. You claimed to have "no time to waste" and urge to "focus on saving lives." Yet you wasted precious resources of the WHO to carry out a smear campaign against Taiwan to shift the focus from your failure in handling the coronavirus pandemic onto a fabricated mater of racism, with full intention to overshadow Taiwan's achievement in this fight against the coronavirus pandemic. Under your leadership, the WHO has long lost its capability and reduced to a mere puppet of the CCP, and became better known as the Chinese Health Organization. For that, we demand your apology and resignation.Dr. Tedros, enough is enough!Yours truly,Citizens of Taiwan.《作者简介》沈志霖，广西快乐十分玩法曾任台湾青年公共事务协会理事长、民进党中央党部青年委员、台湾联合国协进会监事、台湾青年民主联盟中常委。现任台湾联合国协进会理事、王世坚议会办公室主任，17直播政志霖感大声公主持人。《译者简介》杨婉柔，侨务委员。
