致墨尔本朋友,

My Dear Friends from Melbourne:


大家好,我是巴丢草。感谢大家在上周六7月20日来Hosier Lane 参加撑港连侬墙的街头艺术活动。感谢诸位再一次让我体会了香港市民和墨尔本市民的爱和行动力。周六的活动,我们得到了许许多多来自于墨尔本香港社群的志愿者帮助,他们的无私奉献让这一场艺术活动变得众人瞩目,五彩缤纷。


Hi,This is artist Badiucao.Thanks for everyone who comes to the Lennon Wall for Free Hong Kong in Melbourne. It is extraordinary to see your love and action in supporting HK. Really appreciate all volunteers' great effort to make this art campaign successful and rainbow like colorful.


争取自由和民主的路途总是充满着挑战和威胁,哪怕是在自由的澳大利亚。这一次活动我们经历有人蓄意在脸书和澳洲粤语媒体散布恐惧,以阻止众人参与;周六早晨遭到疑似恶意举报;活动开始后更有可疑人士试图监控和拍摄志愿者的样貌。但是,没有人因为一点点恐吓而退缩,在大家的帮助和参与下,墨尔本的撑港连侬墙获得了巨大关注和支持。感谢大家风雨同舟!


There are always challenges,even threats on the way to fight for freedom and democracy,regardless where we are. We have experience many difficulties including people spreading fear on Facebook and Media in order to scare others away from attending this campaign. In the morning of last Saturday,my art in Hoseir Lane was troubled and reported possibly by people with pro China agenda. Even,after the campaign started,we spot suspicious people tried to take photos of our volunteers' faces on the site. However,none of the these intimidation worked, we made our lennon wall as loud and beautiful as possible. Thank you so much!


昨晚,我获得志愿者告知,连侬墙可能遭到涂鸦和拆除。就目前所了解的情况之后,我相信这并非有人蓄意为之。Hosier Lane 是墨尔本街头艺术皇冠上的珍珠,每天都吸引世界各地街头艺术家在此自由的创作,而我们的连侬墙也得因于这种自由的环境。有新的作品被创造,就会有旧的作品被覆盖。所以请大家理解,并不要为此气馁。


Last night,i got told by volunteers that the wall was covered and damaged. After i learned the details of it, I believe it was not intentionally retaliation. Hosier Lane is the pearl on the Melbourne street art crown where many artists around the world showcase works everyday. It is a free space for all and with every new creation,an old work will be covered. And our Lennon Wall also benefits from this unique freedom from the Lane. So I hope people not feel too frustrated if our wall is covered and respect other artists' work in the future.


连侬墙的意义,不仅仅在于一面墙的保留,更在于大家的行动带给墨尔本和世界的支持香港自由的讯息。而这个讯息会保留和回响在许多不同的空间,如各位的社交网络和我们接受的媒体采访。我和志愿者也通过了数字记录的方式,保存了每一张写下的彩色便签。对于墨尔本连侬墙的数字存档,我正和一些熟悉IT的朋友策划,希望不日能够建立起一个数字档案馆,让诸位的留言得到网络空间永久的展示。


I believe that the meaning of Lennon Wall does not only reside in a physical form. The very beauty and power are also coming from the action of creating it. And these marvelous actions by many are sending a strong message to Melbourne and the world with our determination to protect the freedom of Hong Kong. The memory of our actions are also recorded on Internet,traditional and social media. Moreover, I and volunteers from Australia-Hong Kong Link have made digital record for every single post we have on the Wall. And my next project is to collaborate with my IT friends to create a digital version of our Lennon Wall for a permanent display of it in the future.


另外,我在此向大家承诺:在我下一个墨尔本的美术个展,我一定会保留美术馆的一面墙作为新的撑港连侬墙,把它留给大家贴出更多的对自由香港的期许,而这面墙,会保留到相对久的一段时间,直到展览结束。


I also want to make a promise to you all:for my next Solo art exhibition in Melbourne, I will have an entire wall from the gallery for you to create a new Lennon Wall which will be well protected and preserved until the end of the exhibition.
