南方民主同盟英文Southern Democratic Alliance)是香港首個為爭取種族平等的政黨,現約有600多名成員。成員有華裔香港人、尼泊爾裔香港人、巴基斯坦裔香港人和印度裔香港人,擔當主席一職是華裔香港人龍緯汶。根據龍緯汶所說,在2003年10 月,一群對政治有熱誠的南亞裔人士有感少數族裔在港生活困難,決定聯合認同他們的華人籌組政黨,直接向政府表達訴求。雖然少數族裔生活困苦,但礙於文化不 同兼語言不通,他們大多不會主動尋求協助。現時,在香港議政架構(區議會和立法會)中,沒有一個是代表少數族裔的團體,也沒有屬於少數族裔的議員,因而他 們的聲音大多被埋沒。「南同盟」現已致力擴展規模,並且會諮詢專家分析選區情況和政綱,希望循序漸進成為一個全面和穩定的政黨。

The Southern Democratic Alliance (Chinese: 南方民主同盟) is a pro-democracy political organization in Hong Kong. The Alliance was founded on February 1, 2004.


Its stated mission is to unite South Asians with local Chinese to build up a colorful Hong Kong. According to the party's chair, James Lung, local media have termed the Alliance the "Rising Sun of South Asians in the city."


Specifically emphasizing the need for stronger anti-discrimination legislation, the Alliance has focused on the desires of South Asians, specifically the Nepalese population in Hong Kong. One ally of the party has been the Nepalese spiritual group Heavenly Path. The two groups cosponsored a peace rally on July 1, 2007, which organizers claim drew more than 100 attendees.


The party's support for peace and reconciliation, including between mainland China and Taiwan, is at odds with official policy. This and other disagreement may have led to the August 4, 2008 closure of e-Wiki, a collaborative wiki website that hosted articles linking party chairman James Lung to the banned Falun Gong movement and which described his criticism of China's Communist Party. More recently, the Alliance has petitioned for the accommodation of English-dominant minority groups in Hong Kong, asking the Subcommittee on Race Discrimination to make English-language job postings available from the labor department.


The Southern Democratic Alliance first fielded candidates in the 2008 Legislative Council elections, in the Kowloon West district. Its nominees were party chairman James Lung and Heavenly Path spiritual leader Sukra Bantawa, an ethnic Nepali. In the September 7, 2008 election, th. Alliance received only 591 votes, out of 206,583 cast, or 0.3%.


Chairman: James Lung

Founded: 1 February 2004
