送你條尾 extradition mon oeil

康有為 胡志明 孫中山 斯諾登以及其他許許多多這百多年來足跡遍佈香港嘅人,不論他們甚麼身份-革命家、知識分子、有良知的人、國父  加上更多無明但又係佢哋拯救世界之時路過香港的英雄 。這些在他們年代獨當一面的人物,想想現代的香港要政治打壓引導他們去別處受審?只能講句『送你條尾』!

bloodily shot, a sad and sober reminder

the girl who lost the right eye to a bean bag round  shot by the hong kong  police on 11 August 2019 finally gathered some energy to give a brief statement. a lot of public anger in the past two weeks calling for “an eye for an eye”.  i can’t imagine the courage and how poised she has been in the video. if i were put into the same situation, traumatized is an understatement.

 

 

 

lots of flyers/artwork also emerged and keep on pumping out on various lennon walls in hong kong. here are a few of the examples.

容港治己 let hk governs itself

對超級有錢佬本來無乜好感,但是一則廣告又令到繃緊現況多了個吹水,食花生的空間
黃台之瓜 何堪再摘
「最好的因可成最壞的果」、「愛中國.愛香港.愛自己」、「愛自由.愛包容.愛法治」及「以愛之義 止息怒憤」
方塊字的力量,盡在排版位置之巧妙表現出來
deconstructing 最後幾句竟然得出

因果由國 容港治己
再抽水抽得過火啲的話,連
義憤民誠
也抽出嚟

最後個句好似牽強咗一點。有評論說,超人一把年紀,仍懂得搵個文筆好的,來個靚抽!
我最認同的,是 容港治己。悲觀的人會覺得機會渺茫,不過香港對許許多多外來人士、企業、政府都很有利用價值,所以怎樣發展下去仍然有觀望空間。

疑似黑社會人士,你都唔好話唔似。其實早幾日某晚上見人開始貼黑紙仔,點知貼出嚟咁神似!最該煨就係呢個係乜乜專業人士呢!老實講呢啲人真係丟晒光明正大嘅新界人架!

alleged gangster, people like him bring shame to new territories folks, given i grew up and my parents devoted their youth and career in the NT.

動盪的七月 juillet turbulent

2019年的七月,是個折騰市民的七月。手機裡、電腦內的相,嚟分門別類,先後排序也許都來不及。差不多每星期的抗議運動,東方之珠的黑衣人、雨遮陣,似在追近法國的黃背心。人流之多令天星小輪大排長龍、癱瘓部分地鐵車站係六月已發生最少兩次。炎熱下這帖子還是留待圖片自說話,聆聽盡在畫面中。

juillet 2019 ne reste que 2 jours mais c’est déjà un moi assez fatiguant pour les hongkongais. les grands défilés ont été commencés en juin. la star ferry a été débordée des manifestants, les stations de métro mtr temporairement fermés etc. sont les situations jamais eu avant, au moins à hong kong, cette ville reconnue pour sa efficacité. j’ai pris plusieurs photos, toujours en désordre, mais ça vous donne un peu de mes idées pour ces dernières journées de perturbations.20190701_191756.jpg20190701_191022.jpg20190701_220328.jpg20190701_194925.jpg20190701_192959.jpg

stonewall 50

 

it has been a busy june in hong kong. while cramped an occasional irrelevant post like the bread post into the fin-du-mois line up, this one jolted the hong kong protests aside as  june 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of of the stonewall uprising. the struggle is far from over if one looks at the gender, social, economic, racial, etc. discrimination directed at lgbqtsti people, still rampant and sometimes vicious.

just like the poster of audre lorde project reads “the history of stonewall is trans”, and to that we should add people of color (i.e. latina/o/x, africans/blacks in usa’s problematic lingo) as a substantial number of them were  among those courageous enough  to revolt against the police raid.

as with many movements, those who pushed through the front line, the most radical, the most marginalized did not see or had benefited minimally from the fruits of their struggle. sylvia rivera actually had relaunched street transvestite action revolutionaries  (S.T.A.R.) a year or so before the end of her life, if that’s benchmark to show how much and at the same time how little had been achieved, for the marginalized within the margins of the lgbtqtsti people.

with corporate pride events choking major cities, let’s not forget the trailblazers, the most discriminated among the discriminated, the STARS that they are, twinkling in the distance with their blessings. on the 50th anniversary of stonewall and looking ahead for lgbtqtsti rights, we need their visionary lights to guide as in the never ending quest for social and economic justice.

grounding today with reflections from the past

 

vi iv 30

年復一年,八九的中國學生運動以至後來的天安門血腥鎮壓已經三十年。寫在今天六月尾,彷彿六四的維園今年那在又熱、又濕的集會是這個月反香港政府的惡法(逃犯條例)大規模遊行示威的前奏!其實前奏、後續的對比或關係並不重要。20190604_205836.jpg

20190604_210017.jpg重要的是三十年前學生、工人等對改革開放的訴求、追求,和他們部分人犧牲了生命,是應該世世代代牢牢記住!20190604_210106.jpg燭光不滅

Nanjing and Minnie Vautrin

uncovered from my draft entries, last modification dated  13 déc. 2017 03:32.

she might or might not be a significant figure of the expat and missionary communities in nanjing china in the world war ii era, what is written on her and her personal experience will sure be a part of the war / massacre / peace / never again narratives for a turbulent era. her name is Minnie Vautrin.
Minnie Vautrin

so here is what I penned around the christmas season  of 2017:

what to write or not -rthk late night documentary repeat had an episode on the massacre in Nanjing, sooming my focus in and out throughout the 50 plus minute, a missionary’s story caught my attention – Minnie Vautrin 魏特琳. Reading this in December when everyone walking into shopping centres got bombarded with jingles make the contrast more vehmenly sad. Vautrin, probably suffered a nervous breakdown from witnessing so many people dying around her, took her life within a year of returning to USA for a sick leave.

today, 14 may is the anniversary of her suicide.
