遊行聲明:

殖民時期,香港被視為借來的空間,借來的時間,九七回歸,港人治港只停留在口號的層次,零三、零四年幾十萬人上街表達民主普選的訴求,至今仍未落實。更甚的是,包括土地使用和人口財富分配等規劃政策, 仍舊向商界傾斜,人民對自己空間的使用權,未能發半句聲音。

公共空間被財團私有化:原來屬於房委(香港市民)的公屋商場,被領滙私有化;西九龍的發展,向財團利益傾斜;港島的海旁變成高級私人住宅區或大型商場的後花園,與平民空間隔絶,中環填海區的海旁,亦面臨同樣的命運,變成政府總部和摩地大廈的延伸。

文化歷史財產讓路房地產商:前香港水警總部,原為法定古蹟,卻被長實發展為虛假的文化旅遊,幾十棵百年大樹被砍掉;天星碼頭被強行拆毀,若我們不站出來捍衛,皇后碼頭、中央書院遺址、衙前圍村等文化古蹟,亦會難逃一劫。

莫視環境保育:港府口口聲聲說要搞藍天行動,可是越來越多的屏風樓,遮蔽了市民的藍天與空氣;目前,香港缺乏全面樹木保育政策,發展商隨意砍伐大樹;環評委員會閉門造車,使許多工程項目無視市民對環保的願望而展開,如大鴉洲天然氣站的發展,就可能使香港海域的海豚絶跡。

舊區重建趕絶小商戶、低下層:灣仔、深水埗、大角咀和觀塘等舊區,是很多都市低下層的生活空間,舊區重建,往往大規模地把小商戶、低下層趕離區內,取而代之的是大財團、連鎖店和新型的住宅,這些發展模式,破壞了原來的社區網絡和舊區特色,亦從空間上加劇了貧富的區隔。

新市鎮缺乏社區建設,資源分配嚴重不公:整個香港的規劃,向市中心傾斜,新市鎮,如東涌和天水圍等地方則缺乏社區建設與支援(包括教育與醫療等服務),以致出現嚴重的社會問題。

人口與財富分配的規劃:除了空間的規劃外,香港並沒有針對人口構成作規劃,在解決失業率時沒有針對婦女勞動力的特色;房屋政策沒有處理年青人和同性戀社群的需要;港人子女居港權的問題十年還未解決,那邊廂卻放寬輸入專才;香港有幾十萬的外傭,卻沒支援這些人口的活動空間;當我們說要擴闊稅基,卻廢除了遺產稅,反過來計畫向普羅大眾徴收銷售稅;面臨人口老化,卻缺乏全民醫療保險和退休保障計劃… …

一直以來,民間都零散地展開很多捍衛自己家園的運動,天星與皇后是其中一個具有象徵性的抗爭,我們希望這個位於中環,財團及政府機構林立的空間,能成為民間匯聚力量的地方,讓我們宣告香港是我們的家園,人民要參與這裡的規劃。普選是民主的其中一個方法,我們更要針對社會種種規劃問題,以人民參與的方式,於自己的生活和空間,在此時此刻,實踐民主!Democracy now!!

Let’s work together: People’s planning for our Home and our Land – 318 Rally (Destination at Queen Pier)

Civic Frontier and Pan-Democrats will initiate a rally demanding for universal suffrage in March 18, we (a group concerned with the environment, conservation, spatial and policy planning) will also join the rally and support the implementation of universal suffrage. However, before the universal suffrage, we can implement democracy in different areas, after all, spatial and planning policy has direct impact on our living space. The preservation of Star Ferry Pier has brought us together. We hope to meet and work with more like-minded friends in March 18, and set up a network to implement People’s planning for our home.

We don’t have an organizational center to prepare for this rally, we coordinate the division of labour via a loose e-mail network (Local Action) and hope that friends who are interested can join in and help out. Below are some of the tasks that you can help out:

1. Online friends, website owners or bloggers, please attach the sticker at ‘beyond the stars’ to help promoting the rally. For those who don’t have a website/blog, please send email to invite friends to join the rally or attach the sticker to your email signature.

2. We are in progress of producing a newsletter, in the middle spread page; there will be a map to show all kinds of planning problems that Hong Kong is facing. We wish that you can forward to us information (with 20-30words) of location that has this kind of problem, so that we can include them onto the map. For example:

Queen Pier: The boarding spot of royal family and governor during colonial period, a historical structure that is threaten by demolition due to government refusal to modify the road alignment for 10 meters.

3. If you want to organize activities related to the same theme in the demonstration and assembly, please let us know your plan so that we can help in coordinating.

We would like to implement the idea and culture of direct participation in organizing the rally so as to demonstrate the idea of People’s planning

Below is the rally statement of Local Action.

People’s planning for our Home and our Land – 318 Rally (Destination at Queen Pier)

During colonial period, Hong Kong was regarded as a borrowed space and borrowed time. After the handover in 1997, “Hong Kong people ruling Hong Kong" remains a political slogan. Hundreds of thousands of people took to the streets in 2003, 2004 to express their aspirations of democratic election, which has not yet been implemented. Worse still, including the distribution of wealth, such as land-use planning and population policies are still inclined to corporate interests. People cannot have a say to the use of their space.

Privatization of public space by consortiums: public housing shopping centers, which were belonged to the Housing Authority (citizen), had been privatized by LINKS; the development West Kowloon has prioritized the interest of corporate; The waterfront of Hong Kong, detached from the living space of ordinary people, has turned into the backyard of private properties or large scale shopping mall, the Central seafront reclamation also falls into the same trap, which is designed as an extension of government head office and the giant Mody Mall.

Cultural and historical heritage has given way to developers: the former Marine Police Headquarters, a historical site, has been developed by Cheung Kong Limited into a fake cultural tourist building, dozen of century-old tree were chopped; Star Ferry were forcibly demolished. If we do not stand up to defend the space, the Queen’s Pier, historical sites of Central College, Nga Tsin Wai Village and other cultural monuments will not be survived through the development thrust.

Neglecting environmental conservation: Our government keeps saying that they care for blue sky; however, the city has more and more wall buildings covering up people’s blue sky and blocking people’s air. Until today, Hong Kong doesn’t have any comprehensive conservation policy; the developers randomly fell down trees in their development projects. Most of the meetings of EIA Committee are closed door, as a result, many projects have ignored public aspiration for environmental protection, for example, LNG terminal’s plan in Soko Island may lead to extinction of dolphins in Hong Kong waters.

Urban renewal sweeps away small businesses and grassroots: Wan Chai, Sham Shui Po, Tai Kok Tsui and Kwun Tong are living spaces for the grassroots. Urban renewal development is sweeping small business, the grassroots and their communities away from the region in large scale; instead, the consortiums, chain stores and expensive residential building moved in. Such development model has destroyed the community networks and urban characteristics and further polarized the rich and the poor by spatial segregation.

Lack of community resources and unequal distribution of resources in new town: the planning in Hong Kong is very centralized. New towns like: Tin Shui Wai, Tung Chung, and etc. do not have enough community infrastructures and supports (including education and health services), which results in serious social problems.

Population and wealth distribution planning: Hong Kong has very poor planning policy towards population development. For example in resolving unemployment problem, the policy does not address the need of the woman population; the housing policy does not address the needs of young people and gay community; the right of abode for the offspring of Hong Kong people has lasted for more that 10 years and not yet been solved, on the other side, the government encourages the importation professionals; There are hundreds of thousands of foreign domestic helpers in Hong Kong, who do not have space for their activities; On the one hand, the government says we should broaden the tax base, on the other hand, the inheritance tax has been abolished, while the government wants to introduce GPS which targets at ordinary people; while we are confronting population aging, the society don’t have comprehensive public health insurance and retirement protection scheme ……

The civil society has been launching different kinds of campaigns to protect their home and land, the preservation of Star Ferry Pier and Queen Pier are symbolical, they are located at Central, a space occupied by government offices and corporate consortiums; we wish the space can become a site for people to join force, and declare that people have the rights to participate in the planning of our home and land. Universal suffrage is a practice of democracy; we also need to practice direct participation in all kinds of planning issues that affect our life and living space directly. We want and we are practicing democracy now!

    sorry,可否貼這個活動訊息?

    《天工開物》真的沙龍

    講談對話:董啟章、陳炳釗、陳智德
    熱烈茶水:鄧小樺

    時間:3月11日 (星期日)
    下午兩點開始,歷時約兩個小時
    地點:皇后碼頭
    主辦:本土行動

    查詢:21470788/21357038

    劇場作品《天工開物.栩栩如真:虛擬歷史三部曲》上映一週後,董啟章與陳炳釗來到海風吹揚的皇后碼頭,坐下來與我們暢談改編經驗、劇場意念、歷史與創作。這次董啟章更會朗讀劇本,反向演繹一個文靜的張達明(說書人)。在劇場裡天星鐘樓被斬首的影像被投射到寫著百家姓的屏幕上,而坐在夷為平地的天星廢墟旁,陳炳釗會有什麼話說?陳智德深研香港文學歷史,他還有什麼想問?《天工開物》是一部關懷年輕人的作品,而年輕人會有什麼想說?

    另外,在農曆新年期間,市民連月來在皇后碼頭的佈置、藍絲帶、手印橫額、相片、詩作、板凳,全被無聲無息地「清理」了。本土行動主辦的活動一向請市民自行帶凳參與,是次文學沙龍正是人民捲土重來的時機,同時為 3月18日 的遊行暖場,來重新把碼頭變成人民的空間!

    茶水嬸嬸悄悄話:

    在演出場地,陳炳釗和董啟章都跟我說,因為未剪好,結尾本來不是這樣的。他們本擬把天星時一堆毛頭小子在推土機上扮鐘樓報時的片斷,作為「虛擬時代三部曲」的結尾,而這個結尾要星期三才能ready。

    《天工開物.栩栩如真——虛擬時代三部曲》裡面任歷史與虛構元素互相撞擊,尤其突顯創作主體的介入。近期的很多關於天工開物的座談和訪談,我想這次的特點是檢討、對話、戶外。天星的參與者往往七嘴八舌,可能可以一反文學活動完結後鴉雀無聲各自回家咀嚼的習慣。來讓董啟章和陳炳釗見識一個多聲而真可砥礪的場景,更直接地問他們更多更大的問題。讓他們見到所期待的對話。

  3. ai ya… sorry, i didn’t notice this comment until now.
    pls send me emails next time if you have to post something.
    very sorry.
