2011年4月19日:「反核@中國香港」網頁啟動了

「反核@中國香港」網頁啟動了----http://www.greenpartypost.net/nonukes.html

反核運動只能屬於人民,是人民運動,因為事關全球生命,不能由各種各式的團體作「專家代言」,或代為策劃各種政治交易。

但人民投入反核運動,必須先突破超過半世紀的新聞資訊封鎖,這個網頁是這方面的一個嘗試。

反核運動就是反核。反核者可以同時推動太陽能、風能等再生能源,或同時提倡節約節省、生活要簡僕等等個人修為,但不是先做那些再來反核----我們已沒有時間了,這樣排先後次序,等於沒有反核,等於被核利益集團(包括政府官員與財團)收買了。

2011年3月29日:反核----勿讓天文台扮科學說一漏萬

How much does a person trained in climatology or physics know about the human body's response (individually and statistically) to 微量放射性物質碘131 ?? The culmulative effects and long term effects have never been really researched on. (just tell me, how much do experts - even medical experts, know about the cause of most cancers, not to mention the curing of them, up till today?) yet as long as these people use their academic qualifications to support the status quo, they are licensed to pretend to know.

we really should start a campaign against 愚民政策 by exposing these false experts, and not to let them get away with such irresponsible, bureaucratic response ---- 被問及為何延遲公布,他表示,由於對有關數據進行分析需要時間,所以天文台今日才公布數據。

the most important thing is never to trust the false experts, who have a strong record of colluding with the establishment (and together have been responsible for putting the planet earth and the life forms on it in such difficult situations), and to start taking more natural source of iodine such as kelp and other kinds of seaweed.

天文台錄得微量碘131

(明報)2011年3月29日 星期二 20:15

天文台 署理助理台長馬偉民表示,在剛過去的周六和周末,錄得微量放射性物質碘131。

馬偉民表示,在26日及27日,他們量度得每立方米有62.5微貝可和186.9微貝可的碘131,數量非常微小,不會對市民的健康構成影響。

馬偉民稱,錄得的放射性碘濃度輕微,其含量只有分別增加1000萬及350萬倍後,才會對人體造成影響。

他說,由於這些放射性物質是被風吹過很長距離後才來到香港的,再加上日本福島核安全事故已經發生超過兩星期,所以相信這些放射性物質的濃度已被稀釋。被問及為何延遲公布,他表示,由於對有關數據進行分析需要時間,所以天文台今日才公布數據。

天文台高級科學主任馬偉民表示,內地環保部門在中國南部以及黑龍江地區,監測到微量的放射性物質碘,即使未來數天,吹東北季候風而令廣東的輻射塵,吹來本港,由於濃度是相當低,對環境以及市民健康,不會有影響,呼籲市民毋須擔心。

馬偉民又表示,天文台24小時監測本港的輻射水平,由日本 發生大地震至今,本港輻射水平一直維持正常,市民可以到天文台網站,獲得本港輻射水平的資訊。


2011年3月27日:反核----當切爾諾貝爾再無蜜蜂時,當福島農民永遠失去土地時

this following link presents a rather comprehensicve array of the pro-nuke arguments, with strong rebuttal to them. the interview, in knowledgeable and simple (hence not simplified) terms, debunks all the most current myths (low carbon, French model and all that included) about how safe and adorable nuclear power is. the only thing i think we can add on to it is the "undemocratic" nature of nuclear energy - people are held hostage to it in their (daily) lives, and in death as well.

Nuclear Power: Dirty, Dangerous, Expensive


2011年3月27日:反核:一點的燭光,永遠的陽光

Let's join the campaign against the WHO's accomplice role in promoting nuclear power at the cost of human and ecological health for this and future generations --

The World Health Organization cannot make any comment or decision regarding nuclear energy without deferring to the International Atomic Energy Agency which actively promotes nuclear power. On Friday, Dr. Alexey Yablokov, a Russian expert on Chernobyl, referred to this conflict in pointing out why his book - which found likely one million deaths as a result of the Chernobyl accident - has been met with silence by agencies like the WHO. A daily vigil outside WHO headquarters in Geneva continues. Dr. Yablokov's co-author, the late Vassili Nesterenko, along with Yablokov and many others have actively participated in the vigil. As Oliver Tickell wrote in The Guardian: the 1959 agreement gave "the IAEA an effective veto on any actions by the WHO that relate in any way to nuclear power - and so prevent the WHO from playing its proper role in investigating and warning of the dangers of nuclear radiation on human health." The WHO vigil is now entering its 204th consecutive week. (From the Beyond Nuclear website)

while the rich and powerful can leave a radiation contaminated site forever in the event of a nuclear accident, most people, plants, bees and other living things can't just pack and migrate.

of those who can't leave their homeland, or are most attached to the soil and water which brings life to them and through them to all of us, are the farmers. that's why a somber Japanese Prime Minister was seen offering his apologies to farmers for the damage caused. when farmers don't have land to farm, our days are numbered too.

2011年3月26日(下):反核----當切爾諾貝爾付上一百萬人命及世世代代物種基因變異時

1. according to highly qualified Russian scientists/researchers on Chernobyl - from 1986 to 2004 one million people died as a result of exposure direct and indirectly to the toxic release, and more from then on. the most horrifying part is that the genetic mutations in human and ALL species in that part of the world have become permanent, which could result in continuous sickness and diseases (pains and suffering) as well as eventual extinction of many of these species. the isotopes entering the systems of the planet earth have been since with us all (particularly in the northern hemisphere) and will stay for hundreds of thousands of years.

for an introduction to the book compiled by this Russian scientist/researcher team, watch

"Chernobyl: A million casualties" with Dr. Janette Sherman

2. the above was on air 6 days before Fukushima. one of the book authors subsequently commented on the Japanese disaster. many knowledgeable comments and comparisons of the two disasters. One of them is more plutonium is released in the Fukushima case and plutonium is even more dangerous. so even though the magnitude of the Chernobyl accident could be greater the consequence of the Fukushima disaster can be more serious. and, the Fukushima reactors, being so near to densely populated areas, create a far greater threat to human LIVES. see the one-hour press conference

Alexey Yablokov press conference today - watch on C-Span

these scientists remind us that the action that needs to be taken most urgently in redressing the absurdity and villainy related to global proliferation of nuclear energy is -- to anull the dreadful agreement signed between the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA, the nuclear club) and WHO in the 1950s. the agreement requires all health research findings related (unfavorable) to the nuclear industry to get approval of IAEA for release. this is outrageous!

3. if all these are too heavy for you, you can try the following link for some (very good) black humor. but in the end, the message is just the same......... sorry!

Stephen Colbert asks: "Are you an over-reactor?"

-------------------

My recommended actions:

1. if any of you can find the time, it's worth transcribing (and translating into chinese) the dialogue in the first link. it's so clear and precise.

2. let's at least start a signature campaign (or join any international campaign) calling for the abolishing of the IAEA - WHO evil agreement. the public need honest research and info - now that we know (at least part of) the reason why the world has been flooded with pro-nuclear propaganda for the past 60+ years. BTW where can we find alternative medical and biology experts locally? getting very tired of the professors and engineers!

and more......

(it's a bit lengthy, if you don't have the time to read the whole thing, just read the following passage - interesting!)

...... why do they keep on sprinkling water on the reactors, rather than accept the sarcophagus solution [ie., entombing the reactors in concrete. Editors.] I think there are a couple of answers. One, those reactors were expensive, and they just can't bear the idea of that huge a financial loss. But more importantly, accepting the sarcophagus solution means admitting that they were wrong, and that they couldn't fix the things. On the one hand that's too much guilt for a human being to bear. On the other, it means the defeat of the nuclear energy idea, an idea they hold to with almost religious devotion. And it means not just the loss of those six (or ten) reactors, it means shutting down all the others as well, a financial catastrophe. If they can only get them cooled down and running again they can say, "See, nuclear power isn't so dangerous after all."

(full version) as follows:

What They're Covering Up at Fukushima


2011年3月24日:反核----若計算論證了核電,若生命價值只在於計算中,到計算失準時豈非只剩虛空?

followings are some more links which may be useful to you, which you might like to consult, or use the info there to better explain the situation to friends, if they need to hear figures and all that.

someone mentions the need to compile some basic (but not shallow of course) Q and A but since i, together with friends, have done that back in 1986 and Ming Pao Publishing Co. has turned that into a book, 《核子發電:大亞灣計劃面面觀》(1987), and, since nothing under the sun has changed since then, i am hesitant to repeat myself.

if i am to say anything new now, it would only be (the idea actually comes from the book i am now reading - The Philosopher and the Wolf) ----- when all the scheming and cleverness fail, and when luck goes out, which the author thinks must happen (such as, in facing death, and for that matter, life), who is it that will be left behind? in other words, who am i? In arguing for the use of nuclear power (military or civil), all the talk about material comfort, security, and progress is exactly the epitome of human scheming, cleverness, and teasing of fate (luck). how revealing.

Ask An Expert: Japan's Nuclear Crisis

2. Michael Rose responds to 10 myths commonly disseminated in the US, almost all of which are familiar to us - we hear the HK pro-nuclear camp (pretending to be "neutral academics and experts") making these claims everyday. Debunking myth #9 is esp revealing - as it exposes the hidden danger of and the hypocrisy surrounding the "supreme" French model. one very sensible comment there - "we don't know very much about their (the French) accident record since its industry is nationalized and run behind a veil of secrecy."

_______

Myth #9: France has found solutions to all of nuclear power's problems.

France is pointed to as demonstrable proof that nuclear power can be affordable and safe. While it's true France gets about 75% of its electricity from nuclear power and that it has avoided a large scale disaster but we don't know very much about their accident record since its industry is nationalized and run behind a veil of secrecy. We've been told that Japan runs its program much better than France, so we can only assume that there have been problems.

One has to believe that their aging reactors are just an "accident waiting to happen," said Hirsch. "They are just playing a game of Russian roulette."

Many point to their ability to make nuclear waste disappear into easily stored glass balls while we continue to battle over where to bury our waste that piles up in temporary storage ponds next to the reactors.

"In high level waste, they are no further along than anybody," said Hirsch. "They just dissolve the waste in highly toxic acid and store it in warehouses in the glass. Which is still radioactive and the glass eventually disintegrates and has to be replaced."

The famous scene of 60 Minutes correspondent Ed Bradley lovingly holding one of the glass balls came to mind. "That was just a prop," said Hirsch.

They also reprocess their fuel to create new fuel but this still leaves "most of the radioactivity to be disposed of," explained Bradford.

It also adds to the costs of the producing nuclear power which is one reason French electric rates are 20% above U.S. rates despite subsidies, according to Bradford.

One big problem is that the French reprocessing creates plutonium that adds to the risk of nuclear weapons proliferation.

2011年3月21日:反核----識別披羊皮的資訊

1. as the situation in Fukushima seems to stabalize a bit (aka, the attempt to contain the info has become a world-wide concerted effort of govts and the industry), let's expose more of their info-hiding / attention-shifting tactics. one of them is "normalizing radiation exposure". the following sample (so-called Q and A) comes from the taiwanese govt and has been circulating on the web as "reliable public education" by a responsible and responsive govt. goodness! (the fact that nuclear reactors have been built on taiwan - an earthquake zone shows how responsive and responsible the govt there is/was. (for elaboration on this "is-was", please read my note below.)

back to this Q and A -- my comments on Qs such as 如何避免受輻射感染? 多少微西弗會對人體造成影響?are:

don't pretend there have been proven scientific research findings in these regards. there is none! how would govt or the nuclear industry fund impartial researches in these regards? and, even if there were such researches, the mainstream scientists would rush to crush all the findings unfavorable to the interest of their bosses (govt and the industry) - in the force of a tsunami.

and, as far as long-term effects are concerned, the culprits can always get away with people's accusations - by saying oh, that's nothing to do with our little additional dosage of XYZ, you people have been subjected to other impacts all these time right?

and the most shameless "argument" of the pro-camp experts, which is also implied in this "fact sheet", is that "there is radioactivity everywhere in our 'natural environment' ". why don't they just say uranium is from nature like the sun and the wind, instead of generating all these craps!!

in sum, govt and experts love to disseminate such "knowledge" to people to create the false impression of "there will be solutions"........

日本核能危機Q & A

Note: in the old KMT days nuclear reactors were planned and built. there was a very vocal and courageous voice against this suicidal policy which i first learnt about through reading his letter published in the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists after 3 Mile Island, in it he protested against US double standard of phasing out nuclear power plants slowly in US soil while marketing the technology aggressively to other countries, taiwan included. Then when i worked in taiwan in 1983-84 i located this person - Lin Chun Yi 林俊義, a biology professor teaching in the same university as i did, and we happily exchanged ideas etc. Then, years later as he became the environmental mininster of taiwan when PDP came into power....... he became a strong proponent for the building of the 4th nuclear reactor of Taiwan. Never trust politicians, and for that matter, scholars too!

2. Received a mail entitled "看過這篇文章, 你可能不再可憐日本了", citing the widely circulated 日本核電廠背後的秘密 on the internet. My responses are:

a. 可憐 or not 可憐 a country has never been an issue. it's the people and other living things that counts.

b. i doubt whether there is a country on earth which does not harbor military interest in developing their "civil" use of nuclear power.

c. the article seems to imply there are "safer" models of nuclear reactors, which is very misleading.

Chernobyl Radiation Killed Nearly One Million People: New Book

Nearly one million people around the world died from exposure to radiation released by the 1986 nuclear disaster at the Chernobyl reactor, finds a new book from the New York Academy of Sciences published today on the 24th anniversary of the meltdown at the Soviet facility.

The authors examined more than 5,000 published articles and studies, most written in Slavic languages and never before available in English.

The authors said, "For the past 23 years, it has been clear that there is a danger greater than nuclear weapons concealed within nuclear power. Emissions from this one reactor exceeded a hundred-fold the radioactive contamination of the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki."

"No citizen of any country can be assured that he or she can be protected from radioactive contamination. One nuclear reactor can pollute half the globe," they said. "Chernobyl fallout covers the entire Northern Hemisphere."

Infant Cancer Rates near Nuclear Power Plants

In 2008, a German study reported a 60% increase in solid cancers and a 120% increase in leukemias among children living within 5 kilometers of all German nuclear power stations. After reading the study, the German government stated as, "The present study confirms that in Germany there is a correlation between the distance of the home from the nearest NPP [nuclear power plant) at the time of diagnosis and the risk of developing cancer (particularly leukemia) before the 5th birthday."

After reviewing more studies with the original German study, the author reasons that radionuclides seem to be causing malformations in fetuses in mothers living near nuclear reactors and that might be the cause of the observed high rates of infant leukemias. He argues that embryos and fetuses are more vulnerable to doses and risks from environmental emissions than formerly thought.

Most propaganda from pro-nuclear people say the average radiation near nuclear power plants are as low as or lower than that of other regions. However, this article argues that even ephemeral spikes of nuclide emissions from nuclear power stations would be very dangerous.

P.S. There was a 4.3 quake near Toronto on March 16, resulting in the leak of contaminated water into Lake Ontario from the Pickering nuclear plant.

(Info from the Forbidden Knowledge website)

*******************

to prevent radiation release into the atmosphere in the event of core meltdown, there is the option of pouring numerous tonnes of cement from the air to totally (?) seal off the reactors. even if this is done properly, there is no way to prevent radiation release into the ground and underground water----eventually also the oceans.

strange - people can build something as dangerous as nuclear reactors near fault lines, and also near a metropolitan city like Tokyo. but compared to Tokyo residents, we in HK have far smaller chance of escape if anything happens in Daya Bay. Of course the experts will say there is no chance whatsoever of our region experiencing an earthquake, and yet there are other experts who say the opposite.

a teacher (physicist-philosopher) of mine in Canada was hired by the Canadian Govt to chair a special committee to review the energy policy of Canada back in those days (1980s). he decided to leave Canada at the end of the day despite a bright career prospect there to go back to his home country Australia because of one and only one reason - Canada will not decommission nor stop developing nuclear power plants, but there is no such monsters in Oz.

here is some info which may be helpful to you one day - iodine is itself toxic, so it is not recommended. try something natural and safe for prevention of absorption of radioactive iodine, if that becomes necessary - taking Kelp 昆布 (tablets) is suggested.

on second thought----if the oceans are contaminated by radiation, where shall we get safe Kelp? poor living things sharing the earth with us irresponsible humans!

2011年3月16日:反核必須是人民運動

Also already undergoing construction in Guangdong are two reactors at Tai Shan. The following brief info about it is taken from Wikipedia. European countries (and Canada too, which has been very unethical in its nuclear business deal with China, by lowering the safety standard that is required by the same plant model when built on Canadian soil) have been extremely active in selling their nuclear power plant technology to China and other developing countries. The reason is simple - the no-nukes movement of these "developed" countries is putting up hurdles for business expansion back home, while business, according to Lenin's analysis on imperialism more than a century ago as well as the recent discussions on globalization, just has to expand (to less developed countries). The production of a whole lot of educated people to become apologetic technological experts or unreflective consumers of such dangerous technologies is an indivisable part of this grand business expansion scheme, of course.

Another part of this well-concerted (dirty) business expansion drama is played by the globalized environmental NGOs, which often hold very dubious position (if you are careful in reading their actions and inactions). One example is Greenpeace (China), which has been very vocal, since the beginning of this frightening nuclear "accident" of Japan, in attacking the HK Govt's recent attempt to shift to a higher percentage of nuclear power, while it is still dead silent over all these nuclear power plants that are (and will be) built in Guangdong and all over the mainland. Campaign strategy? Organization interest?

In a nutshell, people should have their own no-nukes movement.

About Tai Shan's, please read the following.

Two units at the Taishan Nuclear Power Plant are under construction in Chixizhen, Taishan, Guangdong province, China. It is planned to go online in 2013 and will be the third site to house Areva's 1,700 megawatt (MW) European Pressurized Reactor (EPR) units. The project is owned by Guangdong Taishan Nuclear Power Joint Venture Company Limited (TNPC), a joint venture, which is 70% owned by China Guangdong Nuclear Power Group (CGNPC) and 30% by Electricite de France (EDF).

On August 26, 2008, excavation work began. The first concrete for the first unit was poured in October 2009.[4] Construction of each unit is planned to take 46 months, significantly faster and cheaper than the first two EPRs in Finland and France.

(from Wikipedia)


2011年3月15日:反核----向不義的賣核國說不,向中電等財團說不

It's very misleading to mention Daya Bay Nuclear Power Plant as if it is just the two nuclear reactors of 900 megawatts PWR designed by Framatome in France. No, since those days (1986) when HK people protested against the construction of these two reactors, 4 more reactors have been built in its vicinity - Ling Ao station (1 km to the east of DB), and more are on the way. All these belong to the Daya Bay Nuclear Power Plant family.

Unlike the first two Daya Bay reactors which use two pressurized water reactors imported from France and Britain, part of the Ling Ao station's equipment was made in China. Li Peng, who attended the opening ceremony of the first Ling Ao reactor on February 6, 1994 as premier, said 30 percent of the equipment at Ling Ao is to be produced locally. Needless to say, its operation is a "Chinese internal affair", only to be monitored by the toothless International Atomic Energy Agency.

In reading about this, i also recall when the French experts left Daya Bay after the period of their stationing there for transfering of operation and management skills related to the first two reactors was over, a SCMP report said they are very frustrated about being constantly complained by their Chinese counterparts as "making the procedures too tedious for the Chinese".

Technology-wise, the first two nuclear reactors of Ling Ao are 938 MWe PWR based on the French 900 MWe three cooling loop design, while the third and fourth ones are being constructed in conjunction with Areva, based on the French three cooling loop design. The third Ling Ao reactor is China's first domestic CPR-1000 nuclear power plant.

Ownership-wise, except for the first two reactors, which the CLP Group in Hong Kong 香港中電 (so-called Hong Kong Nuclear Investment Company) holds a 25% equity, China Guangdong Nuclear Power Holding Company (CGNPC) is the sole shareholder. CGNPC of course has no obligation whatsoever to respond to any doubt or query of the HK populace.

CLP of HK, on the other hand, has continued to score success in the nuclear power plant business in China. Its most recent investment is to own 17% of the 6,000 MW Yangjiang Nuclear Power Station with six 1,000 MW PWR unit. Yangjiang, Guangdong is approximately 220 kilometres west of Hong Kong.

Chan Siu Hung, Director of CLP Nuclear Investment Company Limited, says "the Yangjiang project reinforces CLP's ongoing commitment towards low carbon generation to meet the interim target of increasing our non-carbon-emitting generating capacity to 20 percent by 2020, as set out in our Climate Vision 2050. This investment also supports the Central Government's announcement to cut 40 percent to 45 percent of carbon dioxide emissions per unit of GDP in China by 2020 from its 2005 level, whilst contributing to the sustainable development of the Pearl River Delta region."

How awfully hypocritical! So this is CLP - which conducts charity work such as running the "environmentally friendly" Kadoorie Farm and Botannical Gardens to greenwash its corporate image!!! So this is what the BUSINESS of "low carbon" and "sustainable development" is about!!!

While we care about what's happening in Daya Bay, we should also act against the Yangjiang conspiracy - even though the place is a bit farther away from us. Afterall, CLP is a HK corporation.

ironically, here is a CCTV report on how secretive the Japanese govt is concerning the nuclear "accident". actually as far as nuclear "accident" is concerned, no govt has been and will be open in disclosing the truth -- because 1. the truth is too hard for any human being to swallow ("There is no escape - my dear people and my not so dear neighbors!"), and 2. it is most probably related to some military secrets of that country too. With such secrecy, it is only logical that nuclear power plants are never to be trusted, and why no-nukes is a campaign that everyone should join!

i am worried about the situation of the nuclear reactors of the power plants in NE Japan - local news says the cooling system has stopped working because electricity was cut off during the earthquake. that can be very dangerous - the so-called China Syndrome (core meltdown) is a possibility. the report also says that the "protective wall" does not work - it actually has collapsed...... so radiation cannot be contained.

so on and so forth.

all these "accidents" are not accidental. those of us who are against nuclear power plants have always tried to alert people of these real dangers but the anti-nuclear movement has not gathered momentum here. so many (i have lost count) reactors have been built in Daya Bay since the campaign ended in 1987, and more are coming. ironically the pro-building camp have used the advanced technology of the Japanese model as a "strong" argument against our query.

natural forces are powerful indeed but human folly, greed, and apathy are even more horrifying.


2010年9月27日:搭八十後列車走得有多遠?

閱八十後文藝青年參選藝發局政綱《讓我們一起走得更遠》,有以下驚訝和嘆息:

錢,真是文學、藝術及許多東西的天敵﹗

先分享本村民的兩則童年往事----

(一) 幼年(這個村民是五十後)沒有參加過甚麼藝術活動,除了偷偷進入廣州酒樓時聽女伶在台上唱粵曲,平喉,不知唱甚麼,覺得頗感動。另每過舊曆年,阿公從櫃中取出一塊棗紅夾著深棕色的厚?布,蓋在平日的飯桌上;又囑舅父從不知那個山邊砍下一枝吊鐘,頓覺滿室是新年的喜樂與美麗。吊鐘一個個掉下時我們吮食蜜汁,花盡了枝頭抽出青綠,我們繼續欣賞至正月底甚至二月初。夏日下午昏昏欲睡之際,阿公自街上叫賣的花販子籃中購一兩枝便宜的薑花,室內每每是這種妖冶卻純清的氣氛,間中他改買玉簪,更有一次大破澀囊買下兩枝未放的荷花,如此我們遂可比較三種花香。秋日買兩枝菊花花瓣掉落時儲起來伴粥吃----現在的人絕不能仿傚,因為必中農藥劇毒。

(二) 幼年也沒有兒童讀物(包括文學)可看,星島日報和大公報的副刊又不太合脾胃。阿公教唸唐詩,卻從不深解,我唸後即忘。他興到時與我一起「作詩」,以我的城市課本世界加上他的懷鄉境界,遂有以下的合作品:

春天多雨水 草木發新芽
農夫忙下種 快樂好田家

花間小蝴蝶 飛來又飛去
飛上小枝頭 採罷歸何處

本村民想:

一般像我這樣水平的人在這些(低調到接近不存在的)日常生活中的文學、藝術教育之下,想必會對兩者產生基本的興趣和心底的尊重,並不需要藝發局另外派錢來喚起這類草民對文藝的「尊重」。不過這樣詮釋三位八十後參選人的政綱可能是美麗的誤會了,鄧小樺說「提高社會對香港文學之尊重」、葉浩麟說「豐富社區藝術計劃」、蔡芷筠說「強化青年的欣賞(機會)」時,都沒有指出經費是撥給市民和社區,所以可能都是讓文藝專業人士取得更多撥款,因而令大眾對文藝刮目相看吧。

本村民又想:

以本村民曾接受過的那種(低調到接近不存在的)日常生活中的文學、藝術教育,換上有才華天份的人,也可漸有修為,只要有紙有筆(曹雪芹當日連紙也不夠呢),或有顏有彩有天籟,少點污染,有伯樂師傅的愛心、慧眼、栽培,也不難就此投入文藝創造者行列----這又需要甚麼資助呢?

三位參選人中蔡芷筠專攻藝術教育,但她豪情地說以藝術角度來改革教育制度(不知何解,不過聽上去很豪)之餘,又說現時情況「落後於334學制發展方向」。334一潭混水,課程修改令學校教育的質素更趨低落,以媚俗為平等化,這筆帳還未向有關當清算之際,竟然要藝術教育為它服務﹗何不直說多派錢給文藝專家入學校搞活動?但為甚麼文藝專家就是如此見利忘義?

本村民總結:

講到底,三位參選人不論出身自怎樣驚世進步、空前叛逆的八十後「運動」背景,參選政綱還是指向在自己的網絡中多分餅。這堶惘釵h少出自針對現架構分贓唔勻的「公義考慮」(註),我無從猜測,不過這種「錢養文藝、文藝要錢」的思想前題,卻一點都表現不出進步與叛逆,只見可憐可笑﹗

文藝生活凋零,正因為社會太愛錢,及社會的結構令「無(多多)錢不行」,那麼,如果是進步,如果是叛逆,為何不從「錢」處叛逆出來,與眾多愛文藝者(是專家也可以不是專家)一起從尋找不需要多多錢過生活之道做起?

或曰:事實上要買貴樓交貴租食貴糧坐貴車買貴藥讀貴學位參加貴價文藝交流學習或觀賞活動,文藝專家豈可無錢?答曰:如果進步,如果叛逆,為何不直接衝擊地產商和種種壟斷集團、逼使政府不得阻人自建住房、不用中電港燈煤氣公司搗毀他人山河生計引進來的血汗燃料、以自行車去佔據公路、本土復耕、重拾自療養生、社區學習網絡取代學校-監獄、踼開藝術館大門讓公眾免費出入、愛好文藝交流者則慢慢乘車搭渡到外國去觀摩……而釜底抽薪,文藝既然在藝發等架構之下絲毫不發,索性呼籲大家不要交稅給這個不公不義亦不文不藝的(偽)政府。

藝發局是以錢包裝出來的偽文藝機制去局限人民對文藝的認識,還要文藝專家像交功課般交回「文化產業」的業績;而蔡芷筠的政綱中也不敢不提「文化產業」這個惡咒啊(她是否因而獲選?),而這個圈套才是真正騙去人民文學與藝術心靈的元兇。八十後參選與七十後參選六十後參選本來都一般無所謂,但八十後說志不在成功而在教育公眾就很有所謂----將最流行的「向錢看」意識型態說成是進步叛逆還以此去教育公眾,又連踢爆這個以錢買心的局也要小心翼翼(黃英琦就稱讚蔡芷筠說入局是為了改變,「不是樹敵」)。

選藝發局是初試啼聲,未來有西九、文化局(?)、立法會等種種分更大的餅的途徑。自詡懷著社運背景的進步叛逆去藉參選改變社會者,請叩問一下自己的良心,你要上位分資源,還是要有真的改變?至於八十前的我輩,我們豈能懶惰,又怕out,說句改變留待八十後、欣見他們出來了便放棄責任?在這概念混淆,人不自省,滿天邪霧,貪慾吞噬全球的壞日子堙A八十前,八十後,都不應是一張容許人自滿自得自吹自擂的廣告招紙或護身符。

註:但大家必須明白的是,世上沒有任何偉大的思想家會將「公義」約化為「公正地分錢」。即所謂,亦有仁而已矣。

2010年2月7日:一封據說已轉交張文光的信

X老師(或哪一位接近華叔的人):

科學地檢查數字、憑勇氣質問權威,不用九牛二虎之力即可知道西醫的化療及標靶徹底地把病人人體僅餘的自癒能力打垮,剩下來是一段痛苦的「埋尾」過程。高行健當日被診斷為四期肺癌,話之佢死,告別西醫去遊山玩水,回來經已好番,寫過靈山,拿一個諾貝爾。

就算不是好番,另類醫療(特別是中國傳統醫療)有時可以做到令人帶癌長壽,反正到處是致癌物,殺癌實在無謂。縱使做不到帶癌長壽,帶癌和平地、尊嚴地死去,也是一個值得追求的目標,告別西醫而做到者絕不稀奇。煩請告知華叔。


2009年10月9日晚上:搵水

是夜農歷八月廿一,中秋節後的月亮被NASA的炸藥轟出大洞,NASA要科學地探索月球上有沒有水。

要科研,要知道有水無水,可以想過不那麼兇暴的查究方式,想不到,就暫時不研,又有甚麼問題?誰要趕著上月球飲水、洗澡、淋花呢?科研又不愁無題目,怎樣去生活才不污染地球的水,就不知是個幾有挑戰性的問題。偏不去研究,只去炸爛月亮----搵水來製造可口可樂?

常說人類要弄垮這個地球,想不到遠遠不只如此。美國總統奧巴馬拿著和平獎,美國太空總署卻向千古以來人類最美麗的朋友發動戰爭。

月亮代表我的心,個心穿了洞,今宵不往天看,全球有心的人都應向地上的貪婪叫停----放過這個地,放過這個天吧。

「江畔何年初見月,江月何年初照人」,溫習古代詩人向遙遠的提問,難道我們還不知自己的位置,自己的膚淺?


2009年3月7日:《七十年代》

北島、李陀主編的《七十年代》這本書有幾個特點:

一. 一眾作者都是1970年代的知青,即是:身處亂離困厄之境,從外面看社會全面封閉,從內掙扎則處處是自由的追求。

二. 大部份作者(1980年代及之後)在學術、文藝圈子成了名,但從文章中見出並未忘「本」,「本」在七十年代。這些「本」,既從個人及小群體當時的奮發而來,亦由民間的文化積聚而來----這些文化從北京那些故意被漏出來的「內參閱讀」到上海的私人外語學習聚會不等,此外尚有不少民間智慧,不待多言。

三. 雖然有了名氣,例如阿堅當了那後來被追認為進步的七六年天安門運動中的「英雄」,卻一樣自慚自剖;又例如陳丹青,充分體認到他們這一代僥倖地是在文革時年青,青春的生命在劫後可再走幾十年,但那些年長的則經此一役,肉體的衰老令心靈的重創無法恢復過來,陳丹青即如好一些作者一樣,超越了自吹自擂眉飛色舞,筆下有很多純練的惋惜之情。

四. 從生活中也真是可以學習的----雖然沒有人會認同「強迫下放」,但強迫上沒有學習意義的課堂的課也很殘忍。是以,陳皮十一妹喜歡看的篇章,是由那些坐過牢(張郎郎甚至坐過死牢)的、為生存而鍛鍊出各種謀生本領的那些作者所撰寫的。經過上山下海,人的視野自然不一樣。但千古常新的哲學問題是,坎坷中鍛鍊出人的道德深度,然而又沒有理由因此而為人類締造引致很多坎坷經歷的社會啊﹗

五. 女知青的篇章不多,南方知青的也不多。陳皮十一妹當年目睹鯊口餘生涃水來港的廣東知青,意氣勃發,雄辯滔滔,眼光遠大,學識(與其提早失學的處境不成比例地)豐富,看得傻了眼。她/他們辦刊物,到新華社抗議(在此之前港人連新華社在那堣]不知道) ,十一妹當年跟在後面,獲益良多,今日也希望見到南方知青,男的女的,去撰寫一本她/他們的七十年代。

誠邀:你使用陳皮村「七十年代」專頁,告訴大家你最喜歡這本書的那些篇章、你期望看見怎樣的又一篇,或者你會替大家撰寫另一篇?[稿件請寄來:the_backwaters@yahoo.com]

同期,陳皮村又收藏了Andrey Tarkovsky《時光中的時光》。1970年代蘇聯那邊處處密封窗,當然封不住一個十分懊惱於官僚體系嚴重地浪費他的創作力與天份的大導演。書中收錄七十到八十年代他死亡前的日記,滿是他的控訴,及才氣橫溢的哲思雋語,還有那份不容一絲「物質主義」(後極權社會通常以此為延續統治之招數)滲入藝術領域的執著。這些在今時今日讀來,彷同隔世,大家忙著爭取中產生活的天長地久,Tarkovsky的世界瞬間便熄滅了。

同期,在香港舉辦的「世界電影經典回顧2009」,又剛好展映波蘭電影新浪潮(1950-70年代)的作品,Krzysztof Zanussi導演的《偽裝》又令我們舊夢重溫----重溫那些捷克的哈維爾所經常探討的真誠何在的問題。這問題涉及最幽暗迂迴的人生情節,探討起來所產生的驚慄,往往比波蘭斯基的影片有過之無不及。

在建制(官方的、半官方的、甚至是自認為獨立的學術或民間機構)待久了的人,只要認真想想,都能在《偽裝》中發現很多熟悉的嘴臉----這些大家都會譴責為墮落了、埋沒了良知的人物;不過,真正驚心動魄的,是也許還會發現那一個「正義的模型」是多麼容易被自己代入之同時,卻又被影片掀起這正義模型的面紗,不斷窮追猛打,還問到:「你真是那麼innocent嗎?」

要揭開偽裝,影片還問深一層,你以為自己待在機構堿O在保護那些反叛者,那你就是「一點燭光」嗎?但你去保護那些反叛者,其實不正因為你不敢去做一個反叛者,而建制堛漕丹滮壑u下,就是需要你這類時不時「發光發熱」的人----去顯得建制有人性,及對反叛者寬宏大量?

這些「昔日的題材」,說多遙遠就多遙遠;如果全球化下的自求多福不夠令自己遠離這些辨証,金融海嘯下的自憐自艾都可以作下台階吧。再不然,新千禧的無間道酷美學洶湧而至,還可反過來指上世紀七十年代的包袱太壓迫性了。

唔,道德力量、善良、逆反,果真只是個人的一時投入,而不能積聚,沒有歷史,不可以作為共同遺產、共同念力而流傳下去?


2008年9月25日:寶寶乖,爸媽搵多d就買隻超靚奶粉餵你哦﹗

最低工資without最高工時&集體談判權,爭來做乜?----怕只對有關政客、政權、「民間」團體的前途有利吧(或,已發展到不爭便有害了﹗)

其實拿著那最低工資,做餐死,老闆出茅招走法律罅,又不可以靠集體談判得直,又點會有希望可言?希望之一是有朝一日工作母親(聯同父親)可以餵哺母乳。現時拿著那最低工資就可餵小生命喝生鹿牌、死鹿牌、朦朧牌、指無牌、鳥巢牌,真個多選擇幸福世界。

2008年5月9日:陳皮村民寫了一封信

Dear Roy,

近月陳皮村一位村民成了長期病患者要每天到公園練功保命,因而觀察到好幾個公園都定期噴灑大量殺蟲藥,完全罔顧公園內常有不少老、病、傷殘、兒童在憩息。

話說回來,近年當局以滅蚊為題,小題大做,在公眾地方乃至郊野有人家飲用之山水水源大灑毒藥。此等風氣又蔓延到各大小屋苑,凡花糟等有植物之處皆有殺錯無放過寧多莫少地噴。

回想從前即使是夏天,有陽光或通爽之處,就算是郊野或草叢,都不一定有蚊患;反之,近年除了差不多終年在郊野或草叢皆蚊蹤處處,而以前絕無僅有的"mudd"(那種極細、會飛、接觸人體即將人咬得痕痕癢癢的黑色小蟲)在氣溫稍高時便到處活躍,幾乎有植物之處便見牠們。這種種情況,又成為了藉口,讓噴藥程度升級。然而,大家始終無回歸到一個最基本的科學原理----殺蟲藥令到這些蚊蟲的天敵也同時遭殃,而長遠來說,繁殖週期較短的蚊蟲更快產生抗藥性,因此,愈噴殺蟲藥愈多蚊蟲乃是可想而知的事。然而有關當局卻帶頭違反常識、違反科學,令致全民皆受毒藥殘害,其它生物亦慘遭一輪輪的禍劫。真正得益的,只是出產農業化工產品的大集團﹗

尤可歎者,在此自稱知識社會的地方,大家對此等是非曲直所知甚少,公園噴藥,事前沒有通知,事後沒有提醒有關之毒性,所以,一邊在噴藥,一邊老少病殘還在旁做運動、嬉戲玩耍,真是觸目驚心。謹此希望 貴組織「環保觸覺」揭露此中的荒謬性,讓香港社會變得文明一點。

陳皮村民謹上

p.s. 想知道港珠澳大橋將全中國南來車輛帶來香港這個可怖現實,有沒有人run campaign讓大家知道以及加入抗議,為香港還有一口氣呼吸,作最後的爭取?

*****************************

Roy(譚凱邦)旋即覆信,表示基於以下原故,會參加2008年立法會九龍西地區直選,帶出有關議題。姑勿論你對這類conventional politics能改變世道人心有沒有信心,藉選舉帶出conventional政客不會講的議題也聊勝於無。請看他參選的信的幾個段落:

在香港這個講求效率、不斷計算可量化經濟成果的地方,經濟發展的同時,對環境的破壞亦相當大。很多公司在追求利潤最大化,卻同時使環境破壞最大化。

屏風樓就是一個很好的例子,發展商為追求最大利潤,將樓宇「一字排開」,密密麻麻。引致的問題包括通風減弱,市區氣溫上升,受苦的就是屏風樓後的居民。

香港是一個發達城市,經濟自由度更名列前茅,但全球「開心指數」一直落後於不少發展中國家,排名第七十名以後。究竟原因為何?

我認為,物質上是滿足了,但失去了很多非金錢可以衡量的東西。環境上,我們不能呼吸到一口清新的空氣,日間看不到藍天,晚間看不到星光。生活上,很多人超時工作,陪伴家人時間不足,休息也不足。最近有國際調查顯示本港嬰兒的睡眠時間也是全球最少的。我認為香港需要改變﹗

*****************************

2007年1月11日:土方

昨日,芝姨姨話:報載五年內林村棵許願樹會歸天,記住棵許願樹點死,就係「集體回憶」o勒。

真係至理名言﹗

何謂集體回憶?要解碼就先來解解何謂集體----但在當今的cyber環境下,全民在網不在地,集體已成一隨「機」變數。今日明報黃世澤的文章話,保護一件文物成了一個project,大家做project,就毋須深層的政治承擔。其實,正因價值承擔從來都是建基於共同的生活歷鍊及從而引申出的歷史觀感、又對未來的存在模態要有相通的理想追求,可見沒有這基礎,又怎會有深度,沒有深度,又怎會有承擔﹗一個監獄是否要保留和如何保留,恐怕對監躉和對過路觀光客來說,不會是同一回事,但對於當今的離地社群要做保護來說,則固然是毋須理會的差異。

難怪於新界在地生活的芝姨姨要大家共同記住謀殺許願樹所展露的港人集體盲目自私,也是住新界的玲姨姨就質疑當年拆掉新界人「出九龍」的旅途終站----尖沙咀火車站後,只留個鐘樓有乜意義?而世居中西區的我則要問,小時家中過時過節去買隻雞的中環街市如今安在哉﹗此一問,大概是因為近十年對著土地比較多,故整理回憶時,一方面土土的「以食為天」,一方面則歸納出一個原則----碼頭及其他許許多多文物非文物都不應該拆,原因是浪費、無必要。至於幾十年來與我在天星擦身而過的匆匆過海群眾,則恕我實在想不起曾有那位是同行者。

天星,掉下凡間,成了常規政治,縱聞鼓起舞,人若忘了慳儉持家的土方,恐怕最終只能匯聚成漂流的集體,為了回憶而回憶。


2006年年尾:損萎會

說話再講自己都嫌煩,人地都唔聽,不如抄下舊書啦。反正,d教師工會人,爭自己利益時,才會口口聲聲引述哈維爾,講無權力者之力量,到了有權力者的力量更吸引又像唾手可得時,都唔會記得邊個哈乜乜up過物物物咯。至於泛民此怪物,泛而後濫,濫到點大家心中有數:民主變損萎,咪執輸,爭凳仔。

民主ABC (咁你都唔知?)

What is this independent life of society? The spectrum of its expressions and activities is naturally very wide. It includes everything from self-education and thinking about the world, through free creative activity and its communication to others, to the most varied free, civic attitudes, including instances of independent social self-organization. In short, it is an area in which living within the truth becomes articulate and materializes in a visible way. (V. Havel, Open Letters, p.177)

後極權社會 (慢火煮青蛙﹗)

The post-totalitarian system, after all, is not the manifestation of a particular political line followed by a particular government. It is something radically different: it is complex, profound, and long-term violation of society, or rather the self-violation of society. To oppose it merely by establishing a different political line and then striving for a change in government would not only be unrealistic, it would be utterly inadequate, for it would never come near to touching the root of the matter. For some time now, the problem has no longer resided in a political line or program: it is a problem of life itself. (ibid. p.180)

議異無用?

[M]ost people who are too bound to the traditional political way of thinking see the weaknesses of the "dissident" movements in their purely defensive character. In contrast, I see that as their greatest strength. I believe that this is precisely where these movements supersede the kind of politics from whose point of view their program can seem so inadequate. (ibid. p.181)

適者生存?

即使對六十年代捷克社會中一種希望在現存統治結構下加入「人性」元素("human face")的取向,哈維爾也有保留,並說:

They muddy what was originally a clear demarcation line between living within the truth and living with a lie. They cast a smokescreen over the situation, mystify society, and make it difficult for people to keep their bearings. This, of course, does not alter the fact that it is always essentially good when it happens because it opens out new spaces. But it does make it more difficult to distinguish between "admissible" and "inadmissible" compromises.(ibid. p.198)

沒有這份自覺,又不將真正建立另類社會的希望,放在各種社群分別試驗獨立自主生活之上,那麼,「適應」現存制度只是一潭混水,或混水摸魚而已。

苦海前航

The political and structural systems that life discovers for itself will clearly always be--for some time to come, at least--limited, halfway, unsatisfying, and polluted by debilitating tactics. It cannot be otherwise, and we must expect this and not be demoralized by it. It is of great importance that the main thing--the everyday, thankless, and never-ending struggle of human beings to live more freely, truthfully, and in quiet dignity--never impose any limits on itself, never be halfhearted, inconsistent, never trap itself in political tactics, speculating on the outcome of its actions or entertaining fantasies about the future. The purity of this stuggle is the best guarantee of optimum results when it comes to actual interaction with the post-totalitarian structures. (ibid. p.205)


2006年5月:綠在商品蔓延時

大眾傳媒爭相報導毒菜的(不是)新聞,惹來狂蜂浪蝶食客都搜索有機。且看對食物認真、對環境與社群都念茲在茲的合作社先行者「日本生活俱樂部」怎樣看有機、品牌,相信饒有啟發:

「...目前東京生活俱樂部合作的在地農友大約有一百餘位,社員們固然強調蔬果的安全性,但是卻未盲目地追求『有機』、『無農藥』的品牌,而是與生產者開門見山地討論之後,以栽培過程的透明化為最高原則,否則,打著『純有機』招牌的美國、菲律賓甚至馬來西亞農產品,未來可能毫無顧忌地在日本大行其道,如此將對日本農業造成沉重的打擊,絕非日本消費者之福,這也是生活俱樂部『地產地銷』(在地產品,在地消費)以及『產地直銷』的道理。」(《從廚房看天下》,第278頁)

踢爆了「綠色消費」可以是/已經是一盤大生意,跟著下來,便要重新整理甚麼比較重要,自足?自主?自耕?小即是美?反企業霸權?反消費主義?反綠色gimmicks?支持本土生產?吃得簡單?重建本地食物知識和傳統?回家煮飯?......

茲介紹土生合作社

唔明,去迪士尼讓你忘記身在香港,咁來港遊客其實係去美國殖民地,咁我地就係貼錢出賣國土!

但我又明,去迪士尼讓你忘記身在香港,咁本地遊園者當然係對香港生活有番咁上下唔滿意至會去「假假兒」自己唔係身在苦海,但苦海無邊.........

其實現今邊種娛樂唔係咁?大家都在排唔同既隊買野消磨時間就叫做「玩」,懷念D大人喝D細路:唔好係度搞住曬,出去玩,於是便有免死金牌在外東搞西搞搞不出名堂卻搞出好多個大頭佛的原始歲月。


2005年8月24日:(絕)食在香港

秋水時至,百川灌河,河畔收桔,清香聚散,滿筐滿籮,山川聚寶,感時感地,意思盈盈,又念豬雞,更及鰻桂,眾生殘病,大地沉痾,吃又如何,不吃又如何,無肉守齋,無齋守夜,夜渡天河,終登極樂,眼下一山河水,飛渡時空,萬千意象,天已示警,唯貪愚者執迷癡念,戀物不捨,到底無覺無慧,去日苦多,未識萬劫之不復,在乎此生之不修。

路過有緣人識貨買桔,唸聲阿彌陀佛。


2005年7月1日:派報紙

是日陳皮村仝人參與派發《綠黨報》(七•一號外)宣揚自造健康生活,架空政府財團,坐言起行,認真發掘衣/醫食住行的新方向。當然,也不忘閱讀好書。

2005年6月4日:紀念六四•思考•閱讀

推薦2005年6月號《New Internationalist》的專題"Out of Africa: A Migrant's Story"。如果你已經厭倦了簡化地思考貧窮與富裕、發展與民主等一系列問題,這一個專輯會將這些問題一一還原----即將問題的複雜性層層展露。適合發展工作者、扶貧人士、關注醫護保障的人士閱讀,在認真地面對自己的處境以及人間苦難時參考用。[注意:專輯並沒有提供簡單容易的答案。]


2005年5月20日:記一位「基進」的科學家

2002年5月20日,Stephen Jay Gould病逝。此君何許人也?Richard C. Lewinton與Richard Levins 撰寫了一篇 "Stephen Jay Gould--What Does it Mean to Be a Radical?" 悼念亡友,值得一看。

2005年5月9日:「此刻讓我將魔法完全忘記」

一個星期的拆﹗拆﹗拆﹗業主將原址改成豪裝,而舊陳皮完全剝落成灰,昔日的活動城堡終化歸於零。

新陳皮在閣樓就地取材,聽天打卦。

今早拉菜下山時卻走進了全天域的迷陣,不知名的力量把整片大地「包起」,人站不住,樹倒山搖。放下兩車菜在山腳往屋裡跑(也跑不動),上面「舅父」正在玄關觀望屋前篷帳支架與繩索的損毀,然後評估修復之所須,雨繼續倒往地上,一切傾倒。一場暴風漸過,到拉菜離開村時知沿路大樹倒了好些,鄉村和市集中也人人有故事可講,我們的也有下集﹕書店大漏水。


Our days in May:身體健康,入口芬芳,愛護生態,勞動愉快﹗

陳皮村參與寫作一本題材「敏感」、「火爆」的小書,書名暫不公開,七月面世,請勿錯過。為先饗讀者,玆錄載部份段落於此。
