200512月,你當時在做甚麼?廿多齣短,講述05年灣仔,似乎發生過驚天動地的大事,轉瞬又塵埃落幕。當時發生了什麼?

各地的行動者,有種植大米、小米、粟米各種農民、工人,甚麼驅使他們不遠千里來到香港這個「資本主義自由經濟的楷模」?婦女、青年、父母、還有小孩子,各自懷著甚麼原因和心情參與這場運動?主流傳媒大肆報導南韓農民推倒鐵馬,現場是否只是鏡頭所及?民間媒體又是什麼?我們日常在接收甚麼資訊?這些資訊與生活有何關連?這又與國際貿易有甚麼關係?

「反世貿」,究竟是在反對甚麼?

參與過這場抗爭的行動者,帶著三步一跪的尊嚴,胡椒噴霧的灼痛,摧淚彈的窒息,新發現跨境友誼,回到我城的核心,與在地草根同行,抗爭八年。要在2013年的今天,再一次回顧這段抗爭歷史,呼喚社會關注,因為資本全球化的侵犯,步步進迫,已再次壓到我們的家門前。本年的12月,世貿部長級會議,將再一次在亞洲區舉行,我們又將如何回應呢?
what were you doing during december 2005?  something spectacular seems
to have happened then.  but before the dust was settled, the curtain was
drawn.  what actually happened?   twenty-some videos recording wanchai
in 2005.  activists from around the world, farmers planting rice, millet
or corn and workers, what urged them to travel all the way to this
“prototype of capitalist free market economy”?  women, youths, parents
and children, what were their thoughts and feelings participating in
this struggle?  the mass media overwhelmingly reported on how the korean
farmers torn down the barricades.  through their lens, did we learn of
what happened on the streets?  what then were the civic independent
medias?  what information do we receive?  how do these information
connect to our lives?  and what do all these correspond with
international trade?

“anti-WTO”, what are they against, anyway?

bearing the experience of, the pride of three steps a bow, the scorching
pain of the pepper spray, the suffocation of the teargas, the newfound
friends across borders, the activists who participated in this struggle,
returned to the hearts of our city, trekked along with the local
grassroots, and has been struggling for 8 years.  until now in 2013, we
look back and reflect on these her/histories of struggles, and call on
the attention of the civil society, because the assault of the
globalised capital, is once against pressing towards our doors steps.
in december this year, the Ministerial Meeting of the WTO shall once
again be held in asia.  how then should we respond?
