我們眼前的世界是一個話語權往往被歐美宰制的世界。這部影片呈現的,則是歐美主流之外的、長期以來一直被禁聲、被無視、甚至被妖魔化的另一個世界。不論您是否認同本片分享的另類觀點,國際現勢另一面的聲音都值得被傾聽。

 

1997年,女作家阿蘭達蒂‧洛伊以她的第一本小說《微物之神》成為史上第一位、也是最年輕的一位獲得英國布克獎(The Man Booker Prize)的印度作家。不過,她毅然暫停了前景大好的文學生涯,開始積極投入公民抗爭,諸如反對印度核子試爆、反對印度大壩計畫、反對美國出兵中東、反對美國主導的資本市場等等,更與語言學大師Noam Chomsky共同出版了反全球化的書籍,批判全球化企業對第三世界的蠶食鯨吞。

Forsaken god: Will someone tell Copenhagen, leave the bauxite in the mountain
essay
Mr Chidambaram’s War
A math question: How many soldiers will it take to contain the mounting rage of hundreds of millions of people?

The low, flat-topped hills of south Orissa have been home to the Dongria Kondh long before there was a country called India or a state called Orissa. The hills watched over the Kondh. The Kondh watched over the hills and worshipped them as living deities. Now these hills have been sold for the bauxite they contain. For the Kondh it’s as though god has been sold. They ask how much god would go for if the god were Ram or Allah or Jesus Christ?

'Sometimes they say the Free Market provides a level playing field -- but then when questioned, they ask us to wait for Trickle Down. But things only Trickle Down slopes don't they?'

To the Editor
The Economist

Dear Sir,

This is with regard to the review of my book Listening to Grasshoppers that appeared in The Economist. If this letter is long, ironically it is because the factual errors in the review are so many. In an attempt to highlight my "flawed reporting and incorrect analysis" the reviewer makes some extraordinary errors and leaps of logic:

PTI Unheard: A protester outside a ransacked house in Lalgarh
essay
Democracy's Failing Light
Is democracy a hit with humans because it mirrors our myopia?

While we're still arguing about whether there's life after death, can we add another question to the cart? Is there life after democracy? What sort of life will it be? By democracy I don't mean democracy as an ideal or an aspiration. I mean the working model: Western liberal democracy, and its variants, such as they are.

So, is there life after democracy?

The TRP unworthy: The deaths at Bombay's true icon, VT, didn't matter to TV; those at Taj did
essay: terror in mumbai
(And November isn't September)

We've forfeited the rights to our own tragedies. As the carnage in Mumbai raged on, day after horrible day, our 24-hour news channels informed us that we were watching "India's 9/11". And like actors in a Bollywood rip-off of an old Hollywood film, we're expected to play our parts and say our lines, even though we know it's all been said and done before.

As tension in the region builds, US Senator John McCain has warned Pakistan that if it didn't act fast to arrest the 'Bad Guys' he had personal information that India would launch air strikes on 'terrorist camps' in Pakistan and that Washington could do nothing because Mumbai was India's 9/11.

But November isn't September, 2008 isn't 2001, Pakistan isn't Afghanistan and India isn't America.

short story
Arundhati Roy's first work of fiction since The God of Small Things in 1997 is an allegory, a powerful fable about Climate Change, the War on Terror and Corporate Raj
My greetings. I'm sorry I'm not here with you today but perhaps it's just as well. In times such as these, it's best not to reveal ourselves completely, not even to each other.

If you step over the line and into the circle, you may be able to hear better. Mind the chalk on your shoes.

Gujarat 2002: Can goofy secularism combat organised hatred?
genocide
Genocide, Denial And Celebration
It's an old human habit, genocide is. It's a search for lebensraum, project of Union and Progress.

I never met Hrant Dink, a misfortune that will be mine for time to come. From what I know of him, of what he wrote, what he said and did, how he lived his life, I know that had I been here in Istanbul a year ago I would have been among the one hundred thousand people who walked with his coffin in dead silence through the wintry streets of this city, with banners saying, "We are all Armenians", "We are all Hrant Dink". Perhaps I'd have carried the one that said, "One and a half million plus one".*
[*One-and-a-half million is the number of Armenians who were systematically murdered by the Ottoman Empire in the genocide in Anatolia in the spring of 1915. The Armenians, the largest Christian minority living under Islamic Turkic rule in the area, had lived in Anatolia for more than 2,500 years.]

New WorId Disorder
War is peace. So now we know.
by Arundhati Roy
In These Times magazine, November 2001


 
As darkness deepened over Afghanistan on October 7, the U.S. government, backed by the International Coalition Against Terror (the new, amenable substitute for the United Nations), launched air strikes against Afghanistan. TV channels lingered on computer-animated images of cruise missiles, stealth bombers, tomahawks and bunker-busting missiles. All over the world, little boys watched goggle-eyed and stopped clamoring for new video games.

  • WE.


(此影片乃是WE.的片段,有興趣觀看完整影片者請點http://0rz.tw/f12rS 下載)

下面是WE,一部使用了阿蘭達蒂洛伊(微物之神的印籍女作者)名為「九月來臨」的演說中的講詞,並在網路上散佈已久而作者不詳的紀錄片(?)。即便你對阿蘭達蒂或她的演說興趣缺缺,仍能沉浸在這影片中將她的聲音和背景音樂融合的優秀混音。為了幫助和我一樣完全不以英語為母語,卻想了解阿蘭達蒂在說些什麼的(極少數)朋友們,我會盡一己之力聽寫下這段演說的講詞(全然不覺於其實這玩意早已在網路上俯拾即是)。

說到這GradeSaver呢,和我這念英文出身的傢伙感情可深厚了。這玩意兒 (其他類似的網站還有SparkNotes, eNotes, CliffNotes等等) 呢,講白了就是幫學生歸納重點、分析文本來應付考試和報告的好東西,就連我的大學英國文學史教授小青青,都不毫避諱地在課堂上告訴我們原典念不完的話,直接去看GradeSaver好了。所以說,雖然認真上進又主動的好學生們可能會看不起這種網站和它的使用者,對於許多像我這種半調子書生的人來講,這玩意兒仍是求學之寶啊!

'The Indians are teaching the Americans, too, how to occupy a place ... The occupation of Kashmir has taken place over years. ... In Iraq, you have 125,000 or so American troops in a situation of war, controlling 25 million Iraqis. In Kashmir, you have 700,000 Indian troops fully armed there .. and creating a situation, making it worse and worse and worse.'
