1985年,老師們從Oaxaca遊行到1000公里外的墨西哥城
Teachers march over 1000 kilometers from Oaxaca to Mexico City. 1985.
Photo攝影: Jorge Acevedo

導演朝兒,如果大家還記得2005年的電影節,我們曾放映她的作品<這就是民主的面貌>(This is What Democracy Looks Like, 台譯:西雅圖火未花),這次她深入墨西哥,更進一步探討西雅圖反世貿運動的深入意涵之一:當這世界一切皆可變賣,我們的生存,是人,還是寵物,抑或奴隸?

這齣影片,是關於墨西哥教師反對教育商品化,或對公共服務私營化的運動,當然,透過各大由美國主導的國際新聞社,這單新聞,就變成了「教師要求加薪」,但教師要求加薪怎會演變成家長學生打埋一份,與警察衝突,就當然不會細究。

在香港,我們似乎很接受公共服務私營化,什麼醫管局、市建局、房協,什麼領匯,大搖大擺地把我們的公民權利變成商品出售。現在還大談教改,到底香港的教改,是否真的教改?有趣的是,當出了名維護那些商業邏輯來處理公共服務的前規劃地政局長孫明揚,竟成了教育局長後,我們的「教改」又會成何事?

我們以為落後貧窮的墨西哥地方教師卻告訴我們,教育,就是讓一個人知道如何以知識和行動,去維護一個人該有的尊嚴;而不是,把一個孩子變成商品一樣送給大老闆做員工!

Production by the Director Jill Friedberg. If you remember the Film Festival 2005, her production – <This is What Democracy Looks Like> has been shown. This time she goes deep into Mexico to further investigate on one of the meanings of anti-WTO: when everything can be sold in the world, our form of existence is human, pet or slave indeed?

This film is about the anti-commodification of education by Mexican teachers, or the movements of the privatization of civil services. Undoubtedly, under the US-oriented international mass media, it becomes a news of “teachers’ request on increasing pay”. If it is the fact, there should be no investigation on the reasons of why parents and students get involved and strike with the police.

In Hong Kong, we seem to accept the privatization of civil services. Housing Authority, Urban Renewal Authority, The Housing Society, and the Link, all of them are obviously selling our civil privilege as commodity. Nowadays, they talked about the Education Reform. Is the so-called Education Reform a real one? The funniest thing is that the secretary of the former Housing, Planning and Lands Bureau, Mr. Micheal M.Y. Suen, who is well-known as getting civil services done with protection to the commercial logic, now becomes the secretary of the Education Bureau. What will the “Education Reform” become?

The local teachers from Mexico destitute regions have given us a message: Education is to let people know how to protect human’s dignity by knowledge and action, but not sending kids to be labor of employer, just as a piece of commodity.
