不會忘記

香港2019年社會運動到今天2020年二月底,特別的日子要不是機構鬼拍後尾枕嘅未敢忘記。每月月底則是對太子地鐵站警察暴力的控訴!政府在新冠肺炎下派錢$10000之餘又大幅增加警隊撥款,恐怕市民短期內都不會忘記。

 

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.

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.

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

三民主義 le triple démisme

孫中山粤語演講令到我想起廣東話的兩,三件小事.

佢嘅廣東話口音同香港人係二十一世紀講嘅係唔同的.其發音令人聯想到語言本質的變化,以及喺使用上政治角力嘅起落。有趣的是,聽到呢個粵語版本的時候,我亦發現1924年翻譯成法文嘅三民主義(見下圖)。九十四年前的軍閥肆虐嘅中國,同而家一權獨攬、張牙舞抓黨國不分嘅國度,到底係進步還是倒退呢?

dans l’epoque où des seigneurs de la guerre ont effectivement partitionné la chine dans les années 1920, cet enregistrement sonore de sun yat sen, promouvant le triple démisme et le texte traduit en français en 1924 documentent une chine au chaos. prèsque un siècle a passé, la vie des gens ordinaire a-t-elle été améliorée? je pense que chacun tient son avis au coeur.

新年鮮花年年鮮,可知價值是多少?

年初一的淩晨兩點多三點,又是買平嘢嘅時候!
剛剛才聽見老闆說賣五十蚊的大桔,眨眼已買廿蚊,可惜屋細和沒有拖車仔的我,只能拍下照片留念。
農夫辛勞的工作,只能換來幾十元,是禍是福,是苦是甜,也許不足爲外人道也!

From those tangerines of unbelievable bargin that I didn’t took in for the Ram year, I did menage to recuperated a bouquet worth of flowers from the street, as one of joyful by-standers when passers-by spotted a grad-opening of a store/office (I dont know to-this-date what it was) was throwing away, or at least letting people take home all those flowers delievered to their doorsteps just hours before.

Trashed after an hour or so of spotlight, they are now in a vase, on a table, for an extended fortnight of their lifespan.

from capitalistic middle and uppper class hipster sh*t to civil disobedience rage.

So this has been a weekend loaded with activities I attended haphazrdly. The Kowloon City Bookfair, which is running its 6th annual leg, finally fit into my junky, over-the-head, boisterous music-by-the-habourfront weekend. Organised by young literary connoisseurs, back by a creativity-oriented high school, a think tank, etc., the bookfair is a mélange of talks, roundtables, flea market, mini-bookfair and a mini-concert. Free of charge to everybody, coarse but ever-evolving, it’s what this overcrowded and over-developped city needs if Hong Kong were to slow down and smell some roses, or fresh air!

Thanks to a random gift of kindness, I set foot in West Kowloon waterfront for Clockenflap, probably the last time in a while by the West Kowloon waterfront since constructions will be swung into actions in the coming years.

My previous impression of this “music festival” has been some gweilos replicating rock concerts spiced with burning man. Upon entering I was upset with the overfloated plastic recycle bin with all types of trash. A day later however, a politically charged performance by “my little airport” sort of eased my displeasure. Well, in a non-perfect world, room for improvement is the key!

occupy hong kong 2014 (i)

This might be the first in a series, for a duration not yet known, on the latest civil disobedience in Hong Kong in 2014. Let’s build up curiosity by looking at media, especially state media first!

Maybe Russia and China really are secretly in love, or are they not-so-secret buddies?

Russia Today said “protest turns violent” at the title of its piece posted September 28, 2014 16:33(Moscow time?)

http://rt.com/news/191324-hong-kong-protesters-clashes/

even though it did use the words “pro-democracy” in the report.

Hong Kong police used tear gas and pepper spray on a crowd of pro-democracy protesters who ignored warnings and blocked the city’s main highway. The violence came after several days of student protests.

Meanwhile, China’s official news portal labelled the protest “spun out of control” http://www.china.org.cn/china/2014-09/29/content_33643206.htm

Agence France Presse en español wrote one of its headlines”

Manifestantes prodemocracia paralizan puntos neurálgicos en Hong Kong

https://es.noticias.yahoo.com/manifestantes-prodemocracia-paralizan-puntos-neur%C3%A1lgicos-en-hong-kong-074511202.html

Paralyse it we should, not neuro-logistical centre of Hong Kong, rather the injustice of puppet electoral systems, oligarchy and neoliberalism! Can we?
