clean hands save lives

“clean hands save lives” is a book i received as a gift from an academic public health event but never got around to read. that changed earlier this year because of covid-19.  thanks to the virus, medical professionals and laymen alike talked non-stop about infections and how not to get infected. so a long-held simple fact’s importance resurfaced and became à la mode again, for unfortunate reasons. here you can download numerous versions of the book for free!

le mal de terre en los tiempos de la corona

 

疫情之中,經朋友又發現一可以抽水的影片。吸引我是多人戴口罩的一幕。

lemaldeterre

話說歌曲唱的是環境問題、市民參與等等,但若果把covid-19放遠點跟愛滋病毒hiv、伊波拉ebola比較,人類愈來愈大的足跡,跨進少接觸動物嘅生態環境,是否一次又一次生化危機的幕後黑手?

a seemingly unrelated song on citizen engagement and environmental pollution, but the snapshot of everyone in masks caught my attention and brought us back to the current covid-19 crisis. are our footprints too big that the present and further problems are unavoidable?

歲晚收爐至另行通告?temporarily closed til god knows when

能夠令極端資本主義減慢下來的,不是社會運動,而是新冠肺炎。你有否見過黃昏七點便關門的麥當勞快餐店?如果不是商場阻止,麥記打十號風球都不會停下來。然而今次這商場因為過境的碼頭停用,內裡的商舖也頓變冷清。停止營業的計有銀行、餐廳、中醫、藥房等等,但看看通告便知各家的公關手段。個別受疫情影響生意難做的,幹嘛寫成“裝修”呢?大環境影響,又不是自己錯也不敢寫出事實,這些公司內部文化真是有啲問題喎!

neither typhoon signal number ten nor the prolific social movement of 2019 can barely touch upon the religiously capitalistic machinery of hong kong. then came covid-19, who made a steady and rapid ascent with the year of the rat, and like stepping on brakes did it achieve in sabotaging the capitalistic rat race with just a few dozens of cases and counting, in february 2020. whether it is tcm clinic, restaurant, bank or pharmacy, their branches in this shopping arcade which serves also as a ferry terminal to mainland china and macao decided to temporarily close the doors until perhaps the community outbreak of the virus retreats, if their leases last that long. what perplexed me was the lie a few of the notices posted “renovation” as the pretext, what were the management thinking? it wasn’t the company’s fault, but external, uncontrollable circumstances that require cost-cutting measures. if there is anything, it makes me think thrice about the integrity of these corporations for if they need a pretext foe something they didn’t do, imagine when they really make an error or put their customers in harms way, they probably would find tons of excuses to rid themselves of responsibility! so consumers beware, separating the good crops from the rotten few in the time of covid-19.

yes, we fuck

i will write a non-Chinese language review if time permits and my heart still at it, for the time being u have to settle on imperfect google translate
香港社會運動電影節(今年第十七屆)是我覺得比較進步的組織之一。在過去幾個月香港嘅社會運動、遊走拉美之間、以及老豆進出醫院之間,到十一月中先至到電影節做觀眾。

第二套睇嘅戲係yes, we fuck,內容探討身體不同能力嘅人的性需要 。
影後討論提到性教育、衛生巾、男女待遇不同、性小眾等等當代議題。對於身體狀況不一樣嘅人,如智商低於70的話,香港政府以保護為由,所有跟以上人士的性行為皆屬違法。問題來了,性慾、性高潮、甚至更複雜的性愛情感是天生賦予的,在保護個別人士和滿足他們生理需要甚至生理健康之間怎樣取捨?我相信認識個人身體、體質、能力係非主流媒體世界外隱形但實實在在放喺觀眾眼前的多樣的胴體、多樣的性需要、多樣的性快感,是包容不同需要人士的進步社會遲早要正視的第一步。

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』!

rattrapant sur le sujet de l’extradition dans les derniers articles, je vous montre ces quartre noms parmi des nombreux

kang you wei, sun yat sen, ho chi minh, edward snowden

tous ces hommes, et plusieurs femmes et hommes connu-es et inconnu-es de leurs ères, ont changé pour le mieux le monde. tu me dirais l’extradition de hong kong à l’heure actuelle?  j’ai deux mots pour toi – mon oeil!

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

 

wongtaijigwa

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。
