【禁聞】《南都》悼汶川死難者 致敬艾未未

【新唐人2011年5月14日訊】《南方都市報》在5月12號發表社論,紀念5•12四川大地震三週年。文章在悼念逝者的同時,也向發起調查死難學生名單的藝術家艾未未致敬。雖然文章沒有直接提到艾未未的名字,但是很快遭到刪除,不過,社論也被大量轉載,支持者還把文章製成短片上網。

《南方都市報》的這篇社論題為《躺在時間的河流上懷念他們》,中山大學中文系教授艾曉明將這篇文章朗誦後,加上音樂人左小祖咒的配樂,製成短片放到網上。

「我們答應過要唸唸不忘,要生生不息。我們做了很多,又做得太少。迷途不返的人,你們在哪裏?我們點燃的光能否照亮你們的路?我們無法做得更多,只好擺上鐵做的十二生肖,敬上瓷做的瓜子,像徵且祭奠你們凝固了的生命。」

《南都》這篇社論見報後,網路版社論被大量轉載。因為沒有直接提到藝術家艾未未的名字,只提到「鐵做的十二生肖」和「瓷做的瓜子」,社論刊出後並沒有被封殺,但是中午過後這篇文章被刪除了。

複製「圓明園十二生肖獸首」以及「陶瓷葵瓜子」都是艾未未的藝術作品。目前這兩件作品都在英國展出。

據艾未未工作室不完全統計,在四川大地震中,有五千多名學生因為豆腐渣工程校舍坍塌而失去生命。

《唸唸不忘》是艾未未去年5•12期間發起的紀念活動。他公布死難學生名單,邀請網友讀出與自己同姓的學生名字。艾未未曾堅持兩年,在每一天的凌晨零點,在他的推特帳號上,發佈當天生日的死難學生名字,並祝他們「生日快樂」。

艾未未工作室志願者劉豔萍向《新唐人》表示,艾未未的名字已經和5•12受難學生緊緊連在一起。

劉豔萍:「我覺得(《南都》)寫作的『十二生肖』和『瓷瓜子』,比較明顯的應該是指艾未未吧。因為一提起5•12,很多人都會想起艾未未。他近幾年做的這些公民調查,調查學生的名單。所以艾未未這個名字其實是和5•12連在一起的。」

儘管艾未未被抓,工作室人員仍然合力完成了一部記錄片(5•12三週年家長訪談),記錄遇難學生家長上訪的歷程。許多進京上訪的家長慕名來到艾未未工作室,講述他們的辛酸經歷。

劉豔萍:「因為艾老師長期在做學生名單,所以有一些家長知道他,而且現在為學生說話,為家長說話的人真的不多,所以他們來一次北京也非常不容易,然後我們就會對他們做一個採訪,把他們這幾年的經歷講一講,然後我們就會把他拍攝下來,然後在5•12三週年之前我們也把這個視頻傳到網上,希望能有更多人看到。」

汶川地震後,當局不願公布死難學生數字和名單。沒有任何一個建造豆腐渣工程的責任人被追究,沒有任何一座坍塌校舍建築的調查報告被公開,甚至根本沒有做鑑定。艾未未因此發起公民調查,派志願者深入災區調查死難學生名單、學校和班級。

但是調查行動遭到警方阻撓和打壓。參與調查者之一的四川環保人士譚作人去年被抓判刑。艾未未如今也身陷囹圄。

Southern Metropolis Daily mourns earthquake victims and honors Ai Weiwei

Southern Metropolis Daily published an editorial on

May 12 for the 3-year anniversary of Sichuan earthquake.

The editorial mourned for the victims and paid tribute to

Ai Weiwei, who investigated on student casualties.

Though the editorial did not mention Ai Weiwei's name,

it was deleted soon, it is already circulated widely.

Supporters even made it into an online video.

This editorial from Southern Metropolis Daily is titled

“To remember them while lying on the river of time.”

Ai Xiaoming, a professor from Zhongshan University

read this article and made it into an online video

with the music from a musician 'Zuoxiaozuzhou.'

“We promise not to forget. We want to prosper also.

We have done much, but still too little.

Those who have been lost, where are you now?

Can our light illuminate your path? We could do nothing

but bring the iron zodiac and ceramic sunflower seeds

to symbolize and mourn your solidified life.”

After this editorial from Southern Metropolis Daily

was published, its online vision was widely reprinted.

Because the editorial didn't mention Ai Weiwei

but only the “iron zodiac” and “ceramic

sunflower seeds”, it was not deleted until afternoon.

The replica of “Yuanmingyuan's twelve zodiac heads”

and “ceramic sunflower seeds” are Ai Weiwei's

art pieces which are now displayed in the UK.

According to Ai Weiwei Studio's incomplete statistics,

over 5,000 students died in the Sichuan Earthquake

because of the collapse of shabby school buildings.

“Never forget” is an activity started by Ai on May 12

last year. He published the list of students killed in

the earthquake and invited netizens to read those

names. For two years, every morning at 12 AM,

Ai published the names of the dead who are on

birthday that day and wished them “happy birthday.”

Liu Yanping, a volunteer in Ai Weiwei Studio,

told New Tang Dynasty TV that the name of

Ai Weiwei is tightly connected to

the students killed in the earthquake.

Liu Yanping: “I think the 'twelve zodiac' and 'ceramic

sunflower seeds' in Southern Metropolis Daily's

editorial obviously refer to Ai Weiwei. Many people

will think of Ai Weiwei when the 5.12 earthquake is

mentioned, and also his public investigations during

these years and the list of students, so Ai Weiwei's

name is connected with the 5.12 earthquake.”

Although Ai Weiwei was arrested, people from his

studio still managed to complete a documentary

“An interview with victims' parents on the three-year

anniversary of 5.12”, which recorded the bitterness

of appealing to the authorities. Many parents came

to the studio and talked about their bitter experiences.

Liu Yanping: “Because Ai has been working on the

student list, many parents know about him.

Now few people are willing to speak for the students.

We interviewed the parents considering their

hard trip to Beijing…Then we put the video onto

the website before the three-year anniversary of

5.12 earthquake and hope more people will see it.”

After Wenchuan earthquake, the authorities refused

to publish the number or list of students killed in the

earthquake. Nobody was punished or blamed for the

shabby school buildings and no investigation reports

on the collapsed buildings were released.

The authorities did not even attempt to investigate.

So, Ai Weiwei started the public investigation and

sent volunteers to the stricken regions to collect

students' names, schools and classes.

However, the investigation was interrupted by police.

Tan Zuoren, a Sichuan environmental activist who

participated in the investigation was jailed last year.

Now Ai Weiwei also disappeared.
